Buckeye Great Makes the Hall

The most recent selections for the College Football Hall of Fame included one of my favorite Buckeyes from back in the day, linebacker Chris Spielman. He's a bit of a local celebrity here in Columbus, partly because of his radio show on 97.10 The Fan, and partly because of the work he does as part of The Stephanie Spielman Foundation, which is dedicated to fighting breast cancer. Spiels isn't exactly the most talented radio personality, and his ESPN work is sometimes hard to listen to, but he's easily one of the most down to earth celebrity-types you are likely to come in contact with. I'm not always proud of the guys who come out of the Buckeye program (Santonio Holmes is the source of my most recent shame) but Spiels is a good dude.
