Got to meet Holman at his summer wrestling camp, and he was in the ambulance that picked me up after I suffered a terrible broken leg during two-a-days. I said, "whoa Rex Holman, this is awesome!" He said, "we should probably check this guy for shock."
you make a fair point. we have a sense of humor about ourselves, though.
Still remember getting leveled by Tim Schaefer in practice when he was only going half speed. I was only a sophomore; I think he was more embarrassed than I was.
false. but at least neither of us are from hilliard.
i'm happy that 11W gave space to this important, non-Ohio State story. so happy i went from long time lurker to first time poster. i hope this great article doesnt get too lost among the national championship coverage. two points:
1. steubenville is not the next small town: it's been borderline lawless for decades. for more on the bloody, corrupt history of "little chicago," see http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/01/why-nobody-trusts-steubenville/60658/
BONUS: apparently wu-tang's RZA is originally from steubenville, not staten island, and thinks the town "represents darkness." cold, bro. see also camron's "i used to get it in ohio."
2. this is a story about corrupt law enforcement, not football. local officials have really stumbled onto a great media dodge with this "look what's happened to our culture" act, since it distracts people from their train wreck of a prosecution. even as a mere third year law student, i know you can charge practically everyone within earshot of a crime with failure to report a felony or a criminal conspiracy if they dont come forward. steubenville might not role like the NYPD, but i believe this is a pretty common tactic. "rape culture" spreads because it's enabled by disappointing authority figures like these guys. ohio football is better than this.
