Wife and I were in New Castle PA last Saturday = Steeler and Ped State Co. I’m sporting Buckeye gear as always. Parking lot. Car parks, big cat gets out and says “how’s it going”. I reply “all good, how about you”. He says “how you fit in that car”. My car meaning. He’s a big guy; I’m not small, but this guy got me - easy. Wearing a Steelers hat. Goes on to say he needs a car he can fit in. I say well sit in mine. Nah he says. I insist. He gets in and he’s all good. Then he says “can’t say I like the sticker”. My OSU decals that is. My wife is wearing a Browns hoodie too and his head alomost exploded. As he’s walking away I reminded him that the Steelers had the most Buckeyes of any NFL team at one point. It was pretty funny. A little tense - he’s was a big guy - but funny.

Interesting the same message that Mangold had for the linemen - don't be late. This is now a job and most of the players will get replaced in a New York minute if they don't do what is expected of them.

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

Great to know that former players are there for the guys coming up behind them.  Would love to know the degree to which this happens at other schools.

Good to hear the former Buckeyes are taking the time to pay it forward.

Hey I’d love to see a pro like Mangold coaching for tOSU. 

It’s pronounced “Thee”.

As a Habs fan, and someone who loves the poem In Flanders Fields, this mentoring embodies the phrase: 

To you from failing hands we throw
  The torch; be yours to hold it high.

“Excuse my French, but this is fucking amazing,” Holmes said when asked about the number of Ohio State receivers and total players at the combine.

Love it. Thanks so much for the piece, Dan. Excellent stuff.
