Raised as the son of an Ohio State grad, I've been a Buckeye fan since a kid. Went out of state to college at the school that has since become the latest (associate) member of the B1G. Have lived in NJ virtually my entire adult life.Still get a thrill watching TBDBITL and Buckeye football.

He had the misfortune of timing - he was still active but declining during the period when perhaps the best defensive SS ever (Ozzie Smith) was in his prime, an era that also had some top offensive SSs (Templeton, Trammel, Ripken), so that being "the best of the 70s" was easily forgotten/overshadowed.

I would note that Olave's evaluation coming out of HS may have been missed by everyone but Ohio State. That's why I'm never willing to write off the 3-star recruits the Buckeyes sign.
