Ohio State assistant Tom Herman stuck in traffic overnight due to Atlanta snow storm
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.
Live update from ATL. I've moved .6 miles in the last hour. Yes, there is a decimal point in front of that number. pic.twitter.com/AbM9sIQhVv— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
It's official Buckeyes. Just crossed the 10 hour threshold for 50 mile drive from Marietta to ATL. Still have 5 miles to go. #RecordBreaker— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Breaking News: Still on I-285. 12 hr mark has passed. At least I'm getting some quality reps at Flappy Bird. #CompetitiveExcellence— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
13 hrs and counting. Would it be bad form to leave my rental car on the freeway & just walk the 3 miles to my hotel? pic.twitter.com/59eFt5Mrns— 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.
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.
