According to Lettermen Row’s Austin Ward, for some godforsaken reason, Palaie Gaoteote has to wait for a transfer waiver to be approved by the NCAA before he can officially join the Ohio State football team, despite the one-time transfer rule being put into place this offseason.

Absolutely devastating news


And now for something completely different

I interned at the old 1460 The Fan back in the early 2000s when I was a senior at OSU. Paul Keels (along with D.R. Railsback and my now good friend Lori Schmidt) were incredibly kind and helpful during my six months there. Paul even let me interview him after my internship was done for a JComm paper. He is as good of a person as he is an announcer, and since he is the best in the business, that should say a lot!
