COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The recruiting trail froze over, literally stranding one of Ohio State's top salesmen on the highway in the middle of a business trip.

For a coach based in Columbus, a city that has been rocked with snow and freezing temperatures all winter long, it appears the biggest problems of the recruiting busy season actually came when he was down south.

Offensive coordinator Tom Herman chronicled his experience in the wild Atlanta winterscape on Twitter throughout the evening on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning, an entertaining and almost hard-to-believe account of the impact the weather had on an area not nearly as well-equipped to handle it as Ohio. Eventually there was a happy ending and Herman caught a flight to get back on the trail again, but his full account of the journey is well worth checking out.
