2004 A part of the process

    Today, or I guess I should say saturday, I took the opportunity to be a small part of this big recruiting weekend. I took part in a pep band that played for the recruits and their families as they ate lunch. It was kind of cool to be a small part of the process and get just a glimpse of the treatment given to these guys. The lunch was catered by City Barbecue, and included ribs, chicken, pulled pork, baked potatoes, macaroni, salad, cornbread, and more. This was all served in the lobby of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, giving the recruits plenty of time o take in all the awards (you think it's a bad thing to make a recruit squeeze between Heisman trophy cases on their way from the beverage table to their seat near the 2002 National championship sitting in the middle of the room?). Needless to say the food was great as the band was left fighting for the scraps once the recruits were gone, and I still got a great meal. Anyway, just thought you might like what very little insight I can provide.

    This is going to sound horrible, sorry in advance, but what the h-e-double hockey sticks is pulled pork?

    Nutty- pulled pork is barbecued pork that is pulled away from the bone and served in pieces- either on a sandwich or smothered with barbecue sauce on a plate- man I am making myself hungry

    The recruits mostly demolished the chicken and ribs. Since I wasn't in the front of the band line, I was left with the pulled pork. I won't complain though because that was some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. The BBQ sauce was quite tasty.

    As far as recognizing recruits, I certainly wouldn't be one to recognize anyone. I did see an older man in a Glenville jacket, which I would guess to be Ted Ginn Sr, but I'm sure that's not any kinda of news.

    think of Pulled pork, as shredded pork, mixed with BBQ sauce... usually served on a sandwich (just like shredded chicken in BBQ sauce)... if you like pork and BBQ it is good stuff (although you might want to see your heart doc. after the meal... :tongue2: )...

    Great read... funny how nothing was said about Coach Tressel back then, but now that he has proved he can do it at the D1 level you can say he would have been a great fit... looks like he is doing fine as a politician in Neb. :tongue2:
