Mark Lennox generated quite a firestorm over his column about Reon Dawson, one of the newest leaders and best. Super Michigan "Fans" took quite a dislike to Dawson's comments about loving, "the State of Ohio," or "the Buckeyes," or "the Buckeye State." His choice of words may have been poor, but certain fans' responses made me embarrassed, for the first time since RichRod coached, to be a Michigan fan.
Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson, the two most recent Heisman Trophy winners, were born and raised in Ohio. And the basketball team has this kid from Columbus who handles the ball for them. I hear he's really good.
Whatever Reon Dawson said or did not say is not the issue. The issue is the rabid Michigan fan who drags everyone down to the level of, dare I say it, a Buckeye fan. This recruit chose to come to Michigan. He has what it takes to wear the Maize and Blue and should be embraced by fans.
Never forget that the man who said these words, while on his way to the hospital because he was having chest pains, once donned the crimson and silver.
