Actually, after reading through his tweets from the last 6 hours, this is kind of sad: https://twitter.com/gsherm11

Kid is a mess.

~I'm my next next life I'm gonna be a guitarist and overdose on heroin like my idol Kurt Cobain. If you don't know who that is, I hate you
~I wish I had like a million followers so I had atleast a few Twitter superstars to argue with about ignorant shit
~But only people who follow me are my friends and they basically know j don't know shit so they don't waste their time responding
~At the final four izzo told me “not to fucking embarrass myself in front of a crowd bigger than my home town” after I air balled a shot
~IM SOOOO BORED IN GEORGIA I EVEN WISH I WAS IN THE REAL GEORGIA #desperationsettingin #ohioisforlovers

True, Coombs was hired partially to recruit the 513. But he was a few years removed from Colerain when he came to OSU, and I don't think we've signed a kid from Colerain since.

Great video here. Wild (or feral) cats are so much different than their domesticated brethren.... almost like real wild animals forced to fend for themselves. For strictly scientific reasons, I'd like to see domesticated cats (along with dogs, rats, birds, etc.) moved to an island for some generations to see how quickly they revert back to survival instincts in lieu of their domesticated qualities. I bet most of the cats would do alright, but the overbred, manipulated species like bulldogs would be fucked. Those dogs can't even give birth without human intervention because we've bred their heads to dangerous sizes over successive generations.

That's why my first dog (fingers crossed) will be a Rhodesian Ridgeback. They've only been domesticated a few hundred years, so still possess their natural survival instincts.

I'm not the biggest fan of cats, probably because I grew up with them. But they definitely serve a purpose. And if I had a farm, you can bet I'd have a few around just to take care of rodents. They're natural hunters. Just gotta let them do their thing.

My first game was in '99 vs the Ron Dayne Badgers... I was so disappointed I think I cried. But I guess it taught me to appreciate the W's. Since then I've been to a ~dozen games. The Shoe is always great but the best games are on the road with your people in enemy territory.

My favorites:
'06 Fiesta Bowl vs ND: Troy, Santonio, Teddy, AJ, Pittman... We put a whooping on the Fighting Irish and set the table for next year's championship run.
'06 The Game: Didn't have tickets. Drove up from Miami U with friends and watched the game from the parking lot. Definitely the second time I cried watching OSU. God damn, I'm still hyped just thinking about it!
'14 Big Ten Championship: Nobody knew what to expect and if you say you did, you're a damn liar. 3rd string QB leading the team after last year's loss vs MSU. And we straight up dominated. Strangers were hugging, mom's bouncing to the PA's rap beats (one hand in the air with the deuces out), and grown men crying tears of joy. We were all like proud fathers. It was when Joey scooped that fumble right before halftime the experienced crossed into the surreal. You could just look in your neighbor's eyes and feel his joy.

Watching the games on TV is fun. But there's nothing like being there live and contributing to that crowd noise. Getting your section so hyped you feel like you could take credit for that third down stop. High-fiving/hugging complete strangers when your team scores. Oh, and watching the band take the field at halftime to Dot the i. That's something that doesn't translate through TV. You gotta be there when that happens.

God damn, I love Ohio State football.
