LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
Where were you when you heard about the Tressel resignation news?
I was at the US Airways ticket counter at Metro airport on my way to Boston. I overheard a skycap yell the news to the ticket agent. I immediately pushed my wife out of the way, confirmed it with him, and spent the rest of the preflight wait sharing the news with everyone in a Michigan t-shirt.
Reports emerging that the SI article will hit the internets around 7:30-8 pm tonight. Multiple threads with great comments/pictures are accumulating and are Welcome Reposts as we build towards The Story.
Further, Twitter is abuzz that the NCAA is well on its way of investigating OSU for violations (http://bit.ly/kpz4qA).
From what I've heard, the SI report involves the fact Tressel may have had direct knowledge that, specifically, Pryor was involved in car issues and chose not to escalate matter or look further (Youngstown much?). This is the source of the "Pryor is Done" stories, AFAIK, and may lead to an epic level of Lack of Institutional Control when paired with "I Hope He Doesn't Fire Me" comments. Still don't think it's going to be the Bomb that everyone's hoping for that connects all the dots - this might be left for the NCAA to complete. (Edit: 11Warriors post reflects same info as I mentioned).
Anyways... for now... Worst State Ever... (HT: WFNY)
Dantonio is a Tressel protege.
He hates Michigan.
He has improved the MSU program.
OSU would be a big step up for him from the Sparties.
He has Ohio history from coaching Cincinnati.
The twitters are blowing up with this story:
Significant inquiry by NCAA and OSU under way for Pryor, sources say
Apparently more car issues coming to light...
And this from 11 Warriors:
Following in the line of "the answer to this question is always yes, but you should pay to confirm your excellent skills of deduction" questions, Scout asks "Does Michigan Lead For Magnuson?"
They are my number one, so I'm not afraid to say that. It's always been kind of on the back of my mind but I've never really said it.
Let the good times roll.
