I am guessing that this post was reviewed by the football staff and they didn't want to ruin the kid's moment so they made a call.

I can only come up with four Pickerington athletes to ever go to Michigan for football or basketball. 

Football: Jake Butt (Pick North), Taco Charlton (Pick Central) and Lawrence Reid (Pick Central about a decade ago). 

Basketball: Caris Levert (Pick Central).

I do not believe that Ohio State pursued any of those players aggressively.  In fact, I am not certain that Ohio State even offered any of those four. I think that Ohio State will be fine if they determine that they want Xavier.

I never wanted to be one of the older guys. I have been fighting that battle for awhile now. Life problems.

I loved Bobby Knight (despite hating Indiana).  If I had any talent whatsoever, I would have loved to have played for him.  I think he always had his players best interests in mind.  As somebody mentioned, I also don't think Knight was trying to skirt the rules to find a competitive advantage. His advantage came in players working hard and playing smart. I would call Bobby Knight fiery and short-tempered but not crazy.

Harbaugh I think is different. I don't deny that he appears to be a great coach and I cannot speak to how the team works in practice.  He has some fire to him but I do think his charades seem to be off-centered to say the least. Thus, I would say he is more crazy. I can deal with crazy though.  The creepiness is what bothers me.

As a lawyer, I will tell you that you will not pass a field sobriety test. There are like 9 different things to indicate being impaired. If you show 2, you are arrested. It is dumb and anybody who says the field sobriety tests can be used to determine if truly impaired should stop. As to Troy, I'm not angry about him getting a DUI. It happens and probably could have happened to most of us many times. .08 is not much and generally it's not even impaired; however, cops don't exercise discretion anymore. I'm more disappointed by his victim attitude and that he had weed on him.

My son played travel soccer and had 3 severe concussions between his U8 and U9 Spring seasons. He no longer plays, which was his choice and unrelated to the concussions. I still play and loved to watch him play but I'm not upset about the choice considering his injuries.

I think Felix Joyner was attributed as an Ohio State also; however, I don't know who that is.  All of the Buckeyes in the league are on Team Kirksey.  I assume that Team Kirksey will be somewhere in the midwest and, perhaps, playing in Akron if that stadium lease gets worked out.

Maybe it is just me but I thought Herman came across looking childish and like an asshat in the interview. I still like him but this interview will not go down as one of his finer moments in my opinion.  In fact, I think Herman got lit up in the interview.
