Excerpts from the article
On the comment: "I'm just trying to defend my teammate and my friend. Logan is like a brother to me and when somebody threatens his life and his family's life, I am going to come to his defense. The gun comment has been taken out of context. I'm only saying that if you're going to threaten my friend and brother that you better bring a gun because if you're truly threatening his life, you'll have to take mine too. I should have realized that it may have been misinterpreted, but it's hard not to be angry when he and his mother have gone through so much".
- The rivalry: "I truly have a lot of respect for the rivalry. I would have come as vigorously to Logan's defense if it had been from anybody, football related or not. I know that those who make threats don't represent the Ohio State fan base as a whole and that every group of fans has some bad apples in it. One of the reasons I committed to Michigan was to be part of such a great rivalry".
