There's not much question about Aaron's character. Being a Buckeye makes it easy to see what a fine young man he is. What we need to learn from this is how we treat or respond to a similar person that happens to be on a competing team. Tebow is a good example. Herbie comes to mind. Even Desmond, by all accounts a fine person.
Somehow belittling others seems to make us feel bigger. The truth is just the opposite.
