Football Display Case
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
The only reason I have found comfort in losing to tOSU is that my perception of Tressel is a coach that does things right and represents what's right with college football. My eyebrows were raised when the Pryor incident went down because of the number of athletes involved and the culpability of a coach for his teams' lack of charecter. (Many could argue this shows lots of charecter, all questionable). It seems to go against the grain of my perception of him, but I don't know him personally.
If there are more things coming down the pipeline, I am really disappointed by collegiate football being so corrupt. If its all this corrupt, just pay the guys and label it what you will.
Crap like this and Scam Newton tarnish the collegiate game IMHO, and it doesn't make my Christmas better, it just lumps us (Big10) into the same category as them (SEC). It seems like just a potential mess if true.
If that's what you believed in Tressel, then you'll be shocked when you hear the straight story about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.
I guess the lenses in my rose colored glasses have altered my outlook. Throw him under the bus..
Tressel was at the helm when YSU got in major (the real kind of major) trouble.
Peace out Jimmy!
It would make for a most memorable Christmas.
and they'll hire Charlie Weis.
My other ride is a MSU psych major.
Or Jim Harbaugh.

maybe pryor would stay...
Don't put this off so quick. tOSU will want the best out there if they can Tressel. Harbaugh would be on their radar.
We do the Hoke-y Pokey cause he'll turn this team around. That's what it's all about.
Dominate all the college teams as a corch the way he would have dominated if he weren't playing for Tressel

I wore a sweatervest down in Columbus a few weeks ago. Gotta think he felt encroached upon ... I did this.

What if him leaving involves lots of violations (hypothetical)? Would that feel better?
If they've got violations coming, that would make me feel a little better about him dominating us. Would also explain why Lloyd always had the same face when he shook Carrol and Tressel's hand.
That look probably had something to do with the outcome of those games.
It wasn't like when he lost to other coaches. I remember reading somewhere about how he didn't like their shadyness and it bothered him.
That's an internet meme that won't die. Carr gave a normal handshake and just happened to be photographed as he was turning away.
Carr had some issues dealing with the press, but I don't think any opposing coach ever had a personal issue with him.
This article seems like a joke. The only replacement candidate they talk about is Spielman. That takes the ridiculousness to a whole notha level.
Edit: It was changed to Patterson from TCU
That's how you can tell it's bullshit. If he was leaving, Hazell and Fickell wouldn't have left before the coaching search. And Patterson wouldn't be one of the choices-it'd be Hazell, Fickell, Bob Stoops, maaaybe Urban Meyer, or someone with strong ties to OSU and coaching experience. Bo Pelini was a strong possibility before his meltdown, but Patterson? Not happening unless the search goes to hell. I can see Glenn Mason before Patterson.
Recruits were told starting yesterday that Tressel will no longer be the coach and can start looking elsewhere. Looks like some major compliance issues are coming down soon.

Any insider info? You just restated the article but with a little more authority, where are you getting that from? Just wondering...
Wouldn't it be a violation to contact recruits right now?
I was just joking to show the ridiculous of this.
No way this is true. Christmas has never been this good to me before.
I think it's all speculation in light of what just happened. Natural reaction you could say. I'll believe it when I see it.

Might as well add to the rumor mill since I'm bored as tits at a family party...
From the guy that broke the Jim Tressel story on twitter.
I am totally comfortable taking shots about the Tressel story. I'm comfortable w/ my sources.
I hope his source wasn't Melanie Collins.
Or Lynn Henning. Or Michael Wilbon. Or... well, you get the idea.
I just don't know how any of these people are still employed. They have very simple job descriptions. Get information, confirm it, report it. When in doubt, say so. Unless there are extremely good and compelling journalistic reasons, you require your sources to go on the record. Only in extreme, rare circumstances would you not identify yhour sources.
In this case, it's a bit complicated because I am not sure that "Tab," the fatassed suburban Chicago jackoff who first "published" this rumor, actually has a job to begin with. Firing him would be like firing Kramer.
Yes, that's what makes this so hard.
I'm just trying to get ahead.

Man, oh man.

I'd like to have a better record against him before he leaves... I'd really like to see Rodriguez beat him.

"Ohio State has one of the largest compliance departments in the country, yet they have reported 375 violations to the NCAA from 2000-2009, the most in the country."
Actually, that makes perfect sense. OSU is pretty quick to cooperate with the NCAA when infractions occur (and given the size of the NCAA rulebook, infractions are inevitably going to happen everywhere). They don't stonewall.
but if the rumor were true, would he be leaving for somewhere else, or retiring?
Wouldn't be much of a stretch to imagine him taking the Cleveland Browns job then they fire Mangini. He will be forever loved by Ohio fans.
but they like Mangini... I guess that's what happens when you get used to losing, wouldn't mind seeing my Bengals hire him though. I like Tressel, mostly because of the way he reacted to the UM investigation.
should we believe anything he says?
So I click the "About Tab" link:
Tab is a former Clarendon Hills Little League All Star who played football, swam and ran track at Hinsdale Central High School before playing football at Taylor University (Upland, IN). The father of Matthew and husband of Kristin currently has Blackhawks season tickets and a passion for all things Chicago.
OK, his credentials make him an unimpeachable source. How could I have ever doubted him?
Small world- I actually knew that guy pretty well. I played at Taylor with him.
He seemed like a pretty level headed guy. I'm not sure why he would make a claim like this unless he's right or become less logical than he was about 5 years ago.
I'm not saying he's right- just that it gives me more pause that (to me) it's not some random idiot making an outrageous claim...that it's a guy I knew personally who seemed like a very reasonable individual.
I'm going to try to get ahold of him and see if I can get anything out of him about his 'sources'...

But I'd hate to have to paint it.
It's Christmas, not April Fools Day. Tressel isn't going anywhere.
Go Blue! Always!
I'll believe it when I see it. Til then, Tressel is staying at Ohio State.
