Ohioan Ohio State Commit Todd Sibley Jr. Says He's Never Eaten Chipotle, Probably Never Will

Todd Sibley, Jr. claims to have never eaten Chipotle.

James A. Garfield, an Ohioan, and less importantly, the 20th President of the United States, once said, “A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a Devil.”

Though Chipotle was founded in Denver in 1993; America's burrito kingpin has been peddling its wares in Ohio since 1999. It's, uh, done well since.

Finger to the wind: Way more people in this state have eaten Chipotle than haven't. For athletes, I feel the percentage is even higher. As an anecdote: Cardale Jones eats there 17 times a week.

And yet, a brave #teen rises out of Akron.

Todd Sibley, Jr., a star 2017 commit from Akron Hoban, who along with fellow '17 OSU QB commit Danny Clark will form one of the most dynamic high school backfields in the country this fall, claims he has never eaten Chipotle. 

Even more unlikely: He says he'll probably never dine there either. 

To a lot of Ohioans, this is borderline blasphemous. The Lord of Whispers investigated, and Sibley doubled down:

Fair points. But Sibley seems to think it's a bear market for the #brand amongst his peers:

To be fair to Sibley: Chipotle prices are a tad inflated these days. Some of its parking lots are newly discovered circles of Hell. The young but industrious #Bibibop is planning to expand outside of central Ohio soon.

This could be a bad #take down the road — I once swore I'd never eat Skyline without a gun to my cats' heads — but it could also become a #take that's a death knell against an industry icon.

Bigger titans have fallen over less.
