COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After he injured his knee in Ohio State's season opener last year, linebacker Dante Booker was a man in limbo.
Week after week, coach Urban Meyer would tell reporters that Booker may be close to returning to the field. Week after week, Booker would sit out, watching his replacement, Jerome Baker, become a star in a defense laden with stars. In the end, the season was a wash, and Booker took a medical redshirt.
"I felt like I was robbed a little bit," he acknowledged.
