I was raised in John Cooper's tiny hometown of Heiskell, Tennessee. My dad grew up in Hilliard and graduated from OSU in the mid-70s, so I became a Buckeye by default. Thankfully, my UT fandom died after the infamous 1996 Citrus Bowl. Proud OSU (class of 2005) and UT (class of 2007) alum. I currently reside in Knoxville, amongst thousands of miserable Tennessee fans. Go Bucks!
2002 OSU-UM game. Unbelievable to experience that as a student in Ohio Stadium.
