@Carpe...you think Tressel showed up because he was pushing a book? He needed money? Really wanted to push the book up the best seller list with a signing at CostCo? Get off Tressel already. The man gave us 10 GREAT years and made a mistake. Not to mention a mistake that 99.99999% of coaches wouldnt have gotten so much as a reprimand for. He was wrong and thats fine but hes been villified more than guys whose programs blatantly cheat and cheat repeatedly. Move on or turn in your Buckeye gear. PS: What Woody did was 100 times worse than Tressel. Are you disowning him too?

I'm making this up as I go along.
Woody never would have let bad people like Pryor and Clarett run the show. Those kids would have been afraid of him out of respect. No one was intimidated by Tressel. The kids did what they wanted and he had to cover up for them. Wouldn't happen under Woody and won't happen under Urban.
By the way, the Tressel years were great years. He's a great manager and recruiter (weak offensive mind) but in fairness the big ten went thru one of the weakest periods in history. His record is inflated the dismal competition. He was (is) an above average coach with great players. He played it safe and won games.
