Family reports Ohio State football player missing
Kosta Karageorge, a senior defensive tackle from Columbus, was last seen at his apartment around 2 a.m. Wednesday, his sister, Sophia Karageorge told The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1zZXTgq). She said her 22-year-old brother apparently was upset, and roommates said he went for a walk, dressed in black from his hat to his boots.
Police said a missing-persons report was filed on the bearded, 6-foot-5, 285-pound former wrestler.
Team spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed that Karageorge missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer described Karageorge as a hard worker and an important player in practice.
''Our thoughts continue to be with the family of Kosta Karageorge, and we pray that he is safe and that he is found soon,'' Meyer said in a Friday statement.
Karageorge, a former Buckeyes wrestler, joined the football team as a walk-on this season. He has played in one game and is among two dozen seniors slated to be recognized at their final home game Saturday against rival Michigan.
Karageorge's sister said he left without his wallet or his motorcycle. He has a history of concussions, including one a month ago, and might have become disoriented, she said.
''We're very concerned that he's not himself and that he maybe doesn't know what's going on,'' she told the newspaper. She said after each concussion, he has followed trainers' instructions and received proper care, but ''his repercussions from (concussions) have been long-term or delayed.''
The team's physician, Dr. Jim Borchers, said Friday that he could not comment on the medical care of student athletes.
But, Boarches said, ''We are confident in our medical procedures and policies to return athletes to participation following injury or illness.''
The Dispatch reports that about 100 people gathered Friday afternoon in Columbus to post fliers with the player's photo and description.

Boise State Kicker facing threats
The Boise State Broncos were ranked number three in the BCS rankings on Friday. On Saturday, their untarnished record of 11-0 was crushed as well as their number three ranking as Nevada beat the Broncos 34-31 in over time. To the shock of NCAA Football betting everywhere, as the Broncos were heavily favored.
This was a tough loss, especially for Broncos’ kicker Kyle Brotzman, who missed two field goals in the game. The first being a 26 yard kick to win the game with two seconds left, and the second misfire came on an overtime kick from 24 yards.
Understandably, fans were unhappy with Brotzman’s mistakes, and decided to let him know about it. Within hours of the Broncos’ loss, the Ada County Sheriff Department received a report about a woman thought to be associated with the Brotzman family receiving obnoxious, harassing calls.
Soon the obnoxious calls transformed into Facebook pages filled with name-calling, insults, threats, and taunts. On a positive note, the supportive crowd for Brotzman appeared just as fast as the negative bunch, starting groups with names such as “Bronco Nation Loves Kyle Brotzman” and “We Still Love Kyle Brotzman.” Thousands of fans began to leave supportive messages for Brotzman on these groups, and as of Monday afternoon, 27,600 people had clicked the “Like” button for these groups.
Boise State Head Coach Chris Peterson didn’t blame the Broncos’ loss solely on Brotzman by saying that not just one single person is responsible for the loss and that there’s enough blame to go around for everyone: “Including myself. “There were a lot of other chances to win the game. That was just one of them. That's one that 99 out of 100 times he’s going to make.”
The loss drops Boise State out of any running they once had of playing in a BCS game, or possibly a national championship, and they now have to settle for a non-BCS bowl. The game was a tough break for NCAA Football betting fans, but the season it’s over yet. Are you ready to get into the action? Head over to www.sportsbook.com the home of NCAA Football betting.
