I really resent a lot of the comments made in here. I feel I can offer perhaps a unique insight on this subject. I am a recent graduate of Ohio State (BA Economics) and have been a buckeye football fan for life. Over the past two years, I was living in the unit next to Rays in an apartment complex.
He has had a troubled past that were all aware of, but he is a decent guy. In person, he is very kind and cordial, and believe it or not, kept mostly to himself. He is undoubtedly confused, and has made some poor decisions (even recently), but I don't think he is deserving of the hatred or mockery thrown his way. I've never subscribed to the idea of an "ex buckeye". He didn't perform up to standard on saturdays? Fine. Did any of you contribute on e field? I doubt it. He made some (really) bad decisions as a young man. Big deal.
In my book, once a buckeye, always a buckeye. He made mistakes. He knows it. And believe me when i say his life is far from glamorous (i was right there with him), but he is a kind and misguided soul. Get behind a fellow buckeye and root for him, rather than ostracize him.
Just my thoughts, i'm sure many of you disagree, but with the personal connection i had wth ray, it pisses me off to see such comments.
