"You know how Kyle Flood still has a job? Yeah, all Jourdan."
So, as to not start another thread on what events have taken place with Tressel and tOSU I thought I would start a thread looking forward. I think it goes without saying that this will end up harming the buckeyes on the recruiting trail. For those of you, who are more insiders than myself, I was wondering if we could get some insight into potentially how much this will help. I believe that the guys we are going after that are die-hard buckeyes will stay that way even if, some major sanctions were to come down. My question is who is holding offers from M & tOSU that, through these recent happenings, may start leaning more towards the good guys, that were maybe on the fence or at least leaning toward the buckeyes.
Can't wait to watch the fall, go blue.
Edit: I understand this may take some time to develop but, I thoguht it interesting to discuss instead of the countless redundant Tressel threads.
Charles Robinson, one of the investigative reporters for Yahoo! Sports, was just interviewed on the Waddle and Silvie show on ESPN Radio 1000 in Chicago. He stated that there are two additional high-profile stories he is working on, on which will break within the next few weeks and another that looks like it will break in August. Mr. Robinson was prodded fairly hard by Tom Waddle, but would not divulge any individual or institutional names. He was asked to rate the Tressel story on a scale of 1-10 scale, and gave it an 8. Mr. Robinson rated the story to be broken this month as a 6-7, and gave the late-summer story a 10-rating, without hesitation.
This ends any seculation that this was the "big one," even though most of us thought that already. And the plot thickens.....
I couldn't find it if already posted but Brian's front page clip only showed a small portion of the Tressel thread. Here it is... http://www.610wtvn.com/pages/template/tressels_emails_march2011.pdf

In Tressel's public mea culpa last night he quoted George Bush saying, "The most pathetic thing is a leader looking for self-pity." Several other Bush quotes were apparently considered but did not make the cut:
- "I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe -- I believe what I believe is right."
- "See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."
- "I wish you'd have given me this written question ahead of time so I could plan for it...I'm sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with answer, but it hadn't yet...I don't want to sound like I have made no mistakes. I'm confident I have. I just haven't -- you just put me under the spot here, and maybe I'm not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one."
- "There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee -- that says, fool me once, shame on --shame on you. Fool me -- you can't get fooled again."
Can someone explain the federal drug-trafficking case that is being investagated at osu? All I ever heard was the memrabillia scandel. Who are they talking about, is there any proof so far? I
The unintentional comedy of the Jim Tressel email chain is providing me much comfort in these dark days of the offseason. So much so, that I am now replying to all emails in bullet point form, using a space after all sentences followed by a "!!" and then ending it with my initials in lower case form.
I have a question, though. Since I am mocking the vest, should I use the dreaded "go bucks" term, which pains me to type, or switch it over to "go blue"?
I think using "go blue" with the mocking form could make people think I'm serious and not laughing at OSU. Any thoughts?
