Terrelle Pryor: Don't boo LeBron

How much pull does Terrelle Pryor have with Ohio State fans?

We might find out Saturday afternoon.

There are rumors that LeBron James will attend the Ohio State-Miami game (ESPN, 3:40 p.m. ET) at Ohio Stadium. James last showed up at The Shoe for the Ohio State-Penn State game in 2008.

Needless to say, his attendance Saturday would feel extremely ironic after he left his home state and the Cleveland Cavaliers in July for, yep, Miami. A few Ohioans were a little ticked off by James' Decision.

Pryor has a message for Buckeye Nation if The King chooses to grace them with his presence.

"If LeBron does come, just treat him with respect and respect his decision. Please, no name-calling or booing or anything like that. Please. That's my mentor, and I've got a lot of respect for him and a lot of love for him."

Pryor and James have exchanged text messages this week, and he hopes the hoops star shows up Saturday. The Ohio State quarterback has no doubt about James' loyalty when it comes to college football.

"He's a Buckeye."

Will Buckeyes fans feel the same way? I have my doubts.
