I think Tressel should dot the I Saturday during the pre-game.
Disagree entirely. Tressel gave us 10 good to very good years here, but he also saddled us with five years of penalties. Had he come forward when he knew something, we would have had big time players suspended for the first five games of 2010. Since he didn't, we vacated 2010 wins, had the disastrous 2011, bowl ban in 2012 and scholarship reductions through 2014. There may be a time to honor him appropriately, but IMO its not now. Especially when we don't get a chance to play for the conference championship.

Would be hilarious. Dress him up like a band member then take the hat off. Nice smile and wave to the ncaa. The ncaa would have 50 guys camped out at osu the next day trying to find any dirt they could
You can't handle the truth
Not the time yet. Woody went out in disgrace and got to dot the "i" much later. So will Tress.
Can't take that away from the band member and I think the distraction would by substantial.
Exactly. In the entire history of Script Ohio, there have been very few times that a band member hasn't dotted the "I". Decades go by without a non band member getting the honor. Tress may get to do it eventually, but this is too soon. Here the ones who have:
1. Woody Hayes
2. Jack Nicklaus
3. Bob Hope
4. John Glenn
5. Buster Douglas
6. Presidents Novice Fawcett and Gordon Gee
7. A couple of retired band directors and composer Dick Heine
8. Les Wexner did it when they did a multiple Srcipt Ohiio
Some day for sure, just not now.
He is one of the main reasons Saturday is our last game this season and we can't compete for a title game. I know the NCAA is whack and I still don't hate Tress, but he lied and its one (not saying only) reasons for the downfall. No way should he be considered dotting th I in the next 10 years
We are coming for you Bama!
Love Tress and what he did for 10 years... He made a bad mistake... And this team is paying for it dearly... 11- 0... All dressed up with nowhere to go...
Wrong time... Wrong game... And as several posters say, you would not want to take this away from a senior who has earned the right to do the i at THE Game...
Absolutely not!!! Focus on game and championship "team." Do not single out Tressel for anything special on Saturday. It's Urban's first OSU-Michigan game as head coach!!
I believe what your saying is easily forgotten around some fans. ....understandable.....possibly?
However - A program was left in a train wreck - and embarrassed on National Level due to a team Lead by J.T.
Should he get a reprieve so quickly? Dot the I and have a parade?
The freakin team that is 11-0 this year is still paying for his freaking mistakes. You want that man to go out and dot the I?
Lets also not forget what I great Job UM did turning this thing around so quickly.
J.T will have his day - someday in the future. Right now he deserves to be recognized with the 2002 squad. Its a good step.
Lets not push it to far.
