While we were all nestled snug in our beds, Buckeyes offensive coordinator Tom Herman was trapped in his car during a snow storm.
Herman was out on the recruiting trail, but got stranded for 19 hours on an Atlanta highway.
Just passed the 17 hour mark stuck in the car. Don't know what's going on up ahead. Hope everyone is ok. We've traveled 1.5 miles in 10 hrs— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
In the end, Herman began trudging the four miles to the airport, but luckily after just less than a mile, was picked up by a friend who drove him the rest of the way.
So... 19 hrs in my car with hundreds of my closest friends. Too much ice and accidents to move. Gotta make flight to DFW. Call National— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Rental. Tell them I'm leavin the car and start walking the 4 miles to the airport with my luggage. Fall at least five times in first 2 miles— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Find an gas station. Terry Spiller, my dude, shows up and won't take a dime to take me to the final mile or two to the airport.— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Total power move just leaving the rental car on the side of the highway.
To be the best, you need to get the best players, and sometimes you have to camp out on an Atlanta highway.
