Got to meet Holman at his summer wrestling camp, and he was in the ambulance that picked me up after I suffered a terrible broken leg during two-a-days.  I said, "whoa Rex Holman, this is awesome!" He said, "we should probably check this guy for shock."

Still remember getting leveled by Tim Schaefer in practice when he was only going half speed.  I was only a sophomore; I think he was more embarrassed than I was.

i'm happy that 11W gave space to this important, non-Ohio State story.  so happy i went from long time lurker to first time poster.  i hope this great article doesnt get too lost among the national championship coverage.  two points: 


1. steubenville is not the next small town: it's been borderline lawless for decades.  for more on the bloody, corrupt history of "little chicago," see http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/01/why-nobody-trusts-steubenville/60658/

BONUS: apparently wu-tang's RZA is originally from steubenville, not staten island, and thinks the town "represents darkness."  cold, bro.  see also camron's "i used to get it in ohio." 

2.  this is a story about corrupt law enforcement, not football. local officials have really stumbled onto a great media dodge with this "look what's happened to our culture" act, since it distracts people from their train wreck of a prosecution. even as a mere third year law student, i know you can charge practically everyone within earshot of a crime with failure to report a felony or a criminal conspiracy if they dont come forward.  steubenville might not role like the NYPD, but i believe this is a pretty common tactic. "rape culture" spreads because it's enabled by disappointing authority figures like these guys.  ohio football is better than this.

go buckeyes.
