Good to hear, but I have my doubts as to whether he'll be able to contribute much after missing all of camp. 

I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face

^ Yep

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I could be wrong, but something tells me Klein is finished with football. It will be interesting to hear Meyer's decision.

Yes, good to hear there has been a resolution to the case. Hopefully, Klein will grow as a result of his experiences and that he's able to succeed going forward - either with the football team, or in pursuing other endeavors.
I do wonder, though . . . does this mean that Klein is not actually "a bully with a hair trigger temper and no self control"? Or, that he did not "hurt her because that's how he handles anger"? Or that he did not "hurt her because he is a coward"?

+1 on the passive aggressive approach. Charges being dropped does not mean something didn't happen and since he did plead guilty to disorderly conduct something obviously did. It's called a deal. For me, nothing has changed.
Next time you feel the need to dig up my comments from months ago, go right ahead and ask me directly.  We are all adults right?

+1 for being an expert on someone you have never met before

Wow, you win the internet today.  Now don't dislocate your elbow patting yourself on the back.

Works both ways. Perhaps that nothing happened, and Storm just wants the situation to go away as fast as possible, and try to get back to football, so he agrees to this deal.

I don't think he should be back on the team. Where theres smoke, theres fire and I don't think his hands are entirely clean here. I believe that he has many personal issues that he needs to work out before even thinking about football. I think bringing him back would be a distraction as speculation on whether or not he hit a woman would continue, also I don't think he brings anything positive to the table for the 2012 Buckeyes. If I were Meyer I'd tell him no, but offer him any assistance the program can provide to help him move forward with other opportunities.

Doubt he is back.  Too many storm clouds.

I see what you did there,

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I'm inclined to agree. In...Klein...ed.
I'll see myself out.

IMO, UFM will put up a wall to keep the storm from returning, if only to maintain his consistent message to his players, staff and the Buckeye community (and recruits) that he has zero-tolerance for certain actions, criminal or otherwise

Don't text while driving.

I doubt that Urban will bring him back. If he does return, I see a 5 game suspension and no PT this year.

Long live the southend.

I see a lot of people making judgements about something of which they have little or no information at all. Urban's zero tolerance should not apply to things that are not proven. Are we going to dismiss people every time there is an accusation? Please. I understand that some subjects are taboo, but let the first person who has never seen a supposed "victim" be exposed as a liar raise their hands.
Let those who know Storm the best make the call. Hell, let the team captains tell Urban if Storm is a positive influence or not.

Put him back on the team and on scholly, but no playing time. Let him keep some dignity and have a chance at getting his degree.

If Jack and Stoney were allowed to rejoin the team after being booted for their disorderly conduct charges, Klein will be back.  At least he should be.

Big difference between taking a leak outside and being violent with women.... pleading down doesn't clear him of wrong-doing.

JJB's picture

It is also not indicative of him being violent towards women. Not saying he is or isn't. Just that it isn't damning evidence by itself.

I wonder what ever happened to the Duke lacrosse players? I do know that they received death threats before it was found that the prostitute that accused them of raping her was found to be lying.
