Thanks GT! I too have a little girl, and I agree-- it is our responsibility as parents to educate our children about life. Kids are going to be put in 1,000 different situations (as I'm sure all of us were)-- situations that could determine the outcome of the rest of their lives. It is up to us as parents to do our part in making sure that our children make the right decision. You sound like a great father, and I am confident that your little girl is going to go on to lead a successful life. Go Bucks!

I kind of have a unique perspective on this topic; I'm a Juvenile Probation Officer.  While I agree that this young man's acts were egregious, and I absolutely do not wish his actions upon any human being-- the young man has paid his debt to society.  He was found guilty, sentenced for his crime, and reintegrated back in to society.  Far too often, especially in the justice system, we allow one person's past mistakes to define who they are for the rest of their life.  There has to come a point where we, as a society, are willing to allow the rehabilitative system to work.  I do not feel sorry for the young man-- not one bit; what he took part in was terrible, and to me that's not debatable.  What is however, is the fact that the young man was found guilty, served his time, is probably still on parole, and has (at least by my understanding) kept his nose clean-- yet he is still being drug through the mud. Should he be forgiven? That's a call his victim should make, not us. This is a football award that we are talking about-- not a citizenship award; not an award for his positive contributions to the community; but a individual football award.  Why shouldn't the writers focus on his "on field" accomplishments? Again, while I do not agree with/condone his criminal actions-- I am happy for him that he has been able to reintegrate back into society and take advantage of the opportunity to play football again-- and at a high level.  This is a (rare) case of our rehabilitation system working.  He wasn't in "detention." It was prison-- DYS is a juvenile prison, and there aren't a ton of success stories that come out of any prison-- this just happens to be one. I'm happy to hear that Mr. Richmond has been able learn from his terrible mistakes and make the most of (so far) the 2nd chance that has been granted to him.

Hell, recess is where I brushed up on my football skills as a kid! Granted, it was illegal and lead to many, many detentions; all of them worth it! They wouldn't let us have an actual football (communists) so we played a modified soccer/football/rugby game... it was glorious! ... but to your point--I Would have absolutely lost my shit!

Lighten up, it's not like the sky is going to fall if we show up in all blacks Chicken Little. I happen to think it's a cool idea! It's not like this would be the first time black has been incorporated into our color scheme--and is likely a one time thing. Would you still hate it if, say, it turns out it's to pay homage to the Late Great Woody Hayes, drawing inspiration from his iconic Scarlet (white) and BLACK hat?

I could be wrong, but I believe that they must wait until his last year of eligibility expires before applying for it... I think?

This guy is the real deal, you can FEEL it in his tone of voice. He's very confident in what he does and it's cool that he isnt out for the coporate dollar, but the joy in challenging QB's to grow. I'm thrilled by the fact that Brax was able to work with him! It's truely a great time to be a Buckeye!
