"Not only for what millions was telling me but because my family and my husband were suffering the same fate from the internet because of my mistake," she wrote in a statement released on Twitter on Monday night. Paige, a two-time Divas champion who has been sidelined following neck surgery, acknowledged last week that "personal and private photos of mine were stolen" and shared without her consent. In Monday night's tweet, she spoke about the harm and the hurt the incident brought. "The one thing that was the hardest was thinking 'my husband is going to leave me' 'my family will disown me' but I'm blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am," she wrote.
Urban Meyer instituted a tradition at Ohio State University when he became the Buckeyes' head coach in 2012. Every freshman or first-year Buckeye starts with a black stripe on his helmet. Losing that stripe is a big step toward joining the Buckeyes brotherhood. "I wanted to put them through a ritual to become a member of the team, but not allow hazing," Meyer told The Columbus Dispatch in 2012. "They had to earn it the right way, not through hazing and silly, dangerous stuff. They had to earn the right on the football field and by being accountable." To lose the black stripe, freshmen have to do the right things and impress the coaches. Well, the first black stripe of 2017 has already been removed.
