Keeping Hagerup at home on the biggest day of the year takes some balls. RR is under-rated in the integrity department. After watching the 18-yard punt, I was thinking about the interview in '03 when Tressel was asked whether the indispensability of two players would over-ride his suspension of them for team violations prior to The Game, and he said, "I would hope not." I think RR shows that same kind of class, and I hope he starts winning with it soon.
