“Ohio State saw different position match for Roethlisberger”

From Jayson Lillie at Steelers Depot today:

Imagine this nightmare scenario for Steelers fans. It’s 1999, and a senior at Findlay High School in Ohio named Ben Roethlisberger is scheduled to make his college commitment announcement. He sits down at a table with his parents and high school coach and says the following: “I’ve decided to continue my academic and athletic career at The Ohio State University…as a TIGHT END.”

The thought of that is enough to wake Steeler Nation up from its collective slumber in a cold sweat. No #7, no Super Bowl heroics, no franchise QB for almost two decades.

If the Buckeyes’ brain trust in Columbus had its way, this nightmare could have been a reality.
