For Ohio: Mike Vrabel Takes Time to Chat With an Elderly Buckeye Die-Hard

Ohio against the world.

We're living in uncertain times during the COVID-19 outbreak, but Ohio is gonna get through it together – and have some fun along the way.

The Latest

Let's Laugh

We're only on week two without sports, but I'm confident Branden Bowen speaks for us all at this point.

To be fair, the helmet probably does keep him from touching his face, so maybe he's just practicing proper virus prevention?

Regardless, the Beats over the helmet is a nice touch.

Humans Being Human

NFL football coaches are working from home too, and noted good guy Mike Vrabel took time out of his day to chat with an 87-year-old Buckeye and Titans fan who's quarantined alone after he lost his wife last fall.

Based on the memories Ron has to share – the man has been alive for every one of Ohio State's Heisman Trophy winners and national titles – it seems like Vrabel was the lucky one in this instance.

Be safe, Ron.

Take Me Home

No basketball in March still feels wrong, so here's something to get you through.

D'Angelo Russell was almost so damn good during his one season at Ohio State that it almost seems unrealistic that he was part of that Buckeye team. But here is video proof.

Editor's Note: In an effort to keep the mood lighthearted through a tough situation, I made a tongue-in-cheek jab comparing Michigan and Ohio's response to the coronavirus outbreak. My goal was to compare the situation to Ohio State and Michigan's annual blood drive competition which embraces the rivalry to save lives. The way I did it missed the mark. I sincerely apologize for that, and I edited the piece shortly after.
