He introduced himslef to Monken, Todd asked him how old he was... and my son said 10 but I'm small for my age (not sure why he said that but he is very small for his age). Monken said to him in fun loving way half serious / half teasing, because he could tell my kid was really a great kid..."a kid like you isn't too small...I can tell you have a big heart...if these big guys over here(pointing to the 300lb plus linemen) had half the heart you have they would all be All Americans. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you are too small." That's who Todd Monken is. I think he might be the best hire you have ever made. I hope you guys win every game.

Saw this and thought I would add:
Monken is a straight shooter, and will generate some good quips for the press. We will miss him at OSU - wish he had stayed another year or so, but I understand wanting to improve professionally.
You will find very few OSU fans with much bad to say about the Monkens. Great hire for you guys.Now, why I really came here - sorry to hear about all the storm damage. Sounds like a blessing that Mardi Gras had cleared out some students. Best wishes on recovery to the town and the campus.
