Across The Field: Perfect ending

There were 105,899 in attendance at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, and roughly half of them were potential football recruits. (Just a slight exaggeration, but you might want to check back throughout the day Sunday for tons of recruiting updates from the blue-chippers who were in Columbus.) This is Across The Field, a regular feature on BuckeyeNation where we point you to noteworthy Buckeyes coverage here and elsewhere. Think something should be included?
