On this episode, I talk to a longtime friend, one of the most respected sports reports in Ohio, and one of the most genuinely decent human beings I’ve ever known, the Columbus Dispatch’s assistant sports editor Lori Schmidt.

We got into all of messy details of the outburst that former Ohio State linebacker K’Vaughan Pope had on the sidelines and in the locker room last Saturday during the game against Tulsa.

Lori believes that a handful of media outlets rushed to judgment on the situation and perhaps exacerbated the anger that fans were feeling towards Pope. Matt and Lori also discuss the overboard level of vitriol spewed towards Pope by Ohio State “fans.”
