ESPN's Mark Neal was reporting this on twitter--anyone have any insight / knowledge? This one hurts as LB is a position we are thin at.

I'm pretty sure 11w would have broke this news by now.

Knew that we'd have to take some hits to meet the scholarship count, but losing a guy like Mike hurts a little extra.  I wish all the best for his family and his future.

You are actually thinking we cut Mitchell to meet scholly numbers? And at our biggest position of need a 5*?

No what I meant was that we knew people would have to leave, transfer, etc. to meet the scholarship numbers, but to see someone like Mike, who plays a position of need and was so highly rated, be one of the ones to go is unfortunate and he will be sorely missed.

Wasn't Durham a LB when he arrived as well?

I say take this scholarship and give it to Jamarco's teammate, Shelby Spence.

OSU was already over the 82 allowed. I believe with Mitchell leaving, they still need 1 more transfer or someone to be injured.

When I first read the head line, I was pretty disappointed.  But if something were wrong with my Pops, I'd endure hell and high-water to get back to him and my family to see to his recovery and be supportive of my mother and siblings.  Hopefully everything turns out okay.  I think both Mitchell boys are one of a kind talents, but family is family.  

Best of luck to their family, and wishing a speedy recovery for his father.  Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye.

Yup, if one of my parents fell ill, I'd immediately transfer to be closer.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Sad and untimely but that's life and family comes first.  Best wishes to the entire Mitchell family...

Healthy combination of people questioning if it was true or not, saying it would have been reported by 11w first, and another with a slowpoke meme mocking how late I was to this story. Sounds about right for the internet, particularly this forum.

Since you didn't use sarcasm font, I'm going to assume you're being sincere.  Italics is the official sarcasm font of 11W.  Therefore, it was true, and 11W already posted it.  The slowpoke meme was funny.

WedgeSplitter's picture

Nah sorry man don't know what all the official fonts are for this forum don't come here much, only when I have a question like the one I posted....most of the responses reminded me why.

Mike will be sorely missed as a person and player. Wish him and his family the best. Once a Buckeye always a Buckeye.
