“One of the hardest things for most people is to look in the mirror and accept responsibility for the position they are in.” – Jimmie Bell

What Jimmie Bell shares in this episode is not only a hard truth but told in a way that compels you to actually look in the mirror. There are people we come across in life that have this immediate and profound impact on us. For Nate Oliver and now me, one of those people is Jimmie Bell. And we hope now you. By listening to this episode, you will understand what Jimmie Bell means by accepting responsibility for the position you are in. And I believe it will make a difference.

Jimmie Bell (JB) deserves to be heard — he needs to be heard. And we hope you will listen to what JB has to say. We promise you will be affected by this conversation no matter your background.

While this is “Buckeye Focused”, a buckeye here and a buckeye there spawned this conversation. But this conversation goes way beyond football and buckeyes. I’ve always said “sports bring people together” and this episode proves that.
