Did I completely miss this story? I don't recall anything about this at all.

A man who used Facebook to threaten a shooting at Ohio State and vowed to hurt players on the football team and then-coach Urban Meyer pleaded guilty Wednesday to making a threat in interstate communications, authorities said.


Rippy faces five years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing, which has not been scheduled.


Rippy was arrested Dec. 28 in Livermore, California, released on bond, but then failed to report to the court’s Pretrial Services division as required. Rippy also didn’t report to a halfway house as required, court documents said.

He was rearrested in January and ordered sent to Ohio.
