Found August 24, 2012 on No Guts, No Glory:
After being dismissed from the Ohio State football team after being charged with domestic violence, senior linebacker Storm Klein was reinstated to the program on Thursday after those charges were dropped. Klein pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct on Wednesday which prompted Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer to reinstate him to the program. Klein will still be subject to a minimum two-game suspension as well as other “discipline” from Meyer. But Klein is indeed back in the fold in Columbus. Meanwhile, his mother Melanie Klein was on an internet crusade on Thursday to defend her son in the comments of a Bleacher Report posts entitled, “Ohio State Football: Regardless of Charges, Storm Klein Should Not Be a Buckeye”. It was there where mother Klein took on the haters and explained why Storm “deserves to be an Ohio State Football player”. May be time for mother Klein to step away from the keyboard.
  • I wonder if the security pictures showing that he was dragging her by her hair also false
  • Lets face it folks, Storm Klein was a great football player when he played in high school and was twice the size of everyone else. Since he has been in college with all the big boys he is no more than a mediocre linebacker. He hesitates, misses tackles....certainly not a stand out. As for this domestic violence issue. What mother of a child that could potentially receive millions if Storm makes the pros would press charges after a good lawyer points out that she is really only hurting their child not Storm. Get real people its all about the money that will be made. Urban do not let this guy be a Buckeye He is not worthy of this prestigious title. He is no Chris Spealman, A.J. Hawk, he is more like a Art Schlichter or Maurice Clarrett. Inmature spoiled mommas boy who cannot control his emotions like a real man. Go Bucks!
