Growing up in Ohio, Dawson never envisioned himself in maize and blue. Most Ohio State fans don’t.
“Until I die, I’m gonna be a Buckeye fan even though I’m going (to Michigan),” Dawson told the Dayton Daily News on Wednesday. “When we play (OSU) I’m gonna still bring my ‘A’ game. But, I love Ohio State.”
Dawson was originally committed to Illinois but he decided to commit to Michigan at the last second. He wanted to go to Ohio State, but he never got an offer from them. Unless he changes his stance drastically from now until the time team practices start, he could be in for a freshman beatdown.
In case you have forgotten how much these two schools despise one another, perhaps these words from Urban Meyer will remind you. Not enough? How about the gash Mike Vrabel gave himself on his forehead because he got so pumped up before OSU played Michigan that he head-butted a player when he had no helmet on? There is no in-between. Dawson will likely learn that in a hurry.
