Sights, Sounds & Stories from the Women’s Clinic

Jody Victor: Here is some great Buckeye football news from OSU.edu and OhioStateBuckeyes.com.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Anything goes when about 750 Ohio State football fans – all of them women – have the full attention of the Ohio State coaching staff, as was the case Saturday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center for the second annual Ohio State Football Women’s Clinic, presented by Kroger.

Running backs coach Stan Drayton kept the clinic flowing smoothly as a coach-in-charge. He wisely took advantage of the power of the microphone by complimenting his wife’s hair – multiple times – and by opening up a Q&A session with six Buckeyes by alerting them as to who was boss.

“This is a room full of women,” Drayton said to Warren Ball, Drew Basil, Chase Farris, Curtis Grant, Bradley Roby and Jamie Wood, “and they can ask you guys whatever they want. Anything goes.”

Moments later, Farris was doing the “Dougie,” Roby was showing them his “abs” and Basil was explaining that he is 21 and “happily taken.”

An hour later on that same stage, Coach Urban Meyer was meeting every one of the attendees individually, some from as far away as San Francisco, Las Vegas and San Antonio, and having an individual photo taken with each one.

Literally hundreds of other photos were taken throughout the day with the other coaches and the players, who graciously stayed through lunch and signed autographs.
