Spielman Enters Hall of Fame, Forecasts 2010 Ohio St. Buckeyes

Each member of the 2010 College Football Hall of Fame class had a large contingent of fans present in South Bend, Indiana this weekend to honor him. But of the 24 person class, the partisans present on behalf of Ohio State legend Chris Spielman stood out above the rest. They were the largest group; over a hundred strong showed up sporting Spielman’s scarlet #36 jersey.

And as well they should have- because Spielman truly made a name for himself during his four years in Columbus, leading the Buckeyes to three consecutive bowl games and two Big Ten Championships. Like every player eligible for CFHOF induction, he was also a first team All-American; and first team All-Big Ten three times.

Today, he works as a college football color commentator in Columbus for local sports talk radio as well as ESPN. So when I had an exclusive with him on Saturday, my first question was, of course, what about the 2010 Buckeyes?
