    I was never a big Ohio State fan but after seeing this video it shows that they are a classy organization. The guy in the headset is Dom Tiberi, sports director at the CBS affiliate in Columbus and he lost his 21-year-old daughter in a car crash on Sept. 17. That Saturday, Ohio State honored the local legend with a moment of silence before its game. Tiberi returned to Ohio Stadium for this weekend's win over Wisconsin, and as the players left the field, nearly every Buckeye welcomed him back with a hug.

    Dom's a local legend in C-bus. I remember watching him on the news when I was at OSU in the mid-nineties. Nice gesture for a well respected guy.

    Sad story. That dude is a cornerstone of Columbus sports scene. His daughter's death was a fairly big deal here. I think the other local channels even expressed their condolences on air.

    The Tiberi family grew up across the street form me. His sister Susan was the first girl I ever kissed. Great family and Dom is a great guy!
