Arguments for Saint Tress include:
"He thought his players were selling drugs!"
"It was a white lie! What crimes did he committ?"
"He's not as bad as that scumbag Pearl."
They threw bags of urine at me last time I was in that city for a game.
What is WFAN?
WFAN (660 AM), also known as "Sports Radio 66" or "The FAN", is a radio station in New York City.
Actually this radio is 1450 AM The Fan in Columbus. I doubt any NYC station would be talking about the Buckeyes when DA YANKS are playing.
Did you just correct the OP? I'm pretty confused right now.
I'm pretty sure I live in New York and am listening to the radio here
For a second there I thought megatron had called in to defend tressel
Megatron was never the same after Starscream got caught selling his Golden Autobot Pants on eBay.
(Post Bumblebee, of course).
Then I realized that I agreed with him and knew it couldn't be an OSU fan calling in to a radio show.
I happen to be back home, in Toledo over the weekend, for a Birthday party. While there I ran into my Sisters in-Laws who are all OSU fans. I just can't believe the ignorance they have over the seriousness of the implications of Tressels actions. They truely don't feel as though he did anything wrong, AT ALL. Tressel will be ever known as a Saint in that Shitty State!
Beating Michigan, even if it means not playing by the rules, makes Tressel above the law in their eyes. I can't say their reaction surprises me.
This is America's worst fan base we're talking about here. Tressel can say and do whatever the hell he wants no matter how dirty and they'll see nothing wrong with it.
At this point we are overly close to the obsessive here. Bucknuts calling into sports radio stations is not thread-worthy news.
Well, you did think it was "worthy" enough to both read it and then leave a comment. I think TSIO fans calling into a NY station is very thread-worthy and I am happy it's here.
You also think Tom Izzo is the worst basketball coach in the Big Ten and have more conspiracy theories than anyone in the universe.
I would suggest you take your Carr supporting ass back to the depths of Ypsilanti, where the rest of the Carr-Tel waits in the shadows for its next chance to destroy the university.
Maybe there a local shortage in chewing tobacco that is sending the populace to the phones instead of watching Maury Povich.
"He thought his players were selling drugs!"
That had to be a joke call.
OSU Grad 2005 had this as his strongest argument
How did Francessa respond to these guys?
He just kept hammering the point that Tressel signed a document he knew contained lies and every other coach that has done has been fired.
I can believe that the guy called in and said he was a Buckeye grad. I just doubt he actually is one.
No that guy defintely meant it he was not joking. His argument was that Tressel wouldn't be protecting his players like a parent if he turned them in for drug dealing.
Ohio State fans calling into an Ohio radio station to defend the coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Wow. That's news.
Um, I think it's a very famous NYC radio station.
an OSU fan I know at my little sisters track meet. I asked him if I could exchange my state championship wrestling ring for some tattoos, and he just walked away.
Hasn't Mr. Mendenhall already ruined his cred with the Bin Laden comments?
Bin Laden comments (the Tressell, tOSU parts have been altered in)
He misspelled "#FireTressel" in that last one.
There have been rumblings that Zook isn't always on the up-and-up in his recruiting efforts, either. Maybe the charges against Tressel ring a little too close to home for Mendenhall.
It's not going to be clear to everyone that you're attempting to parody his comments on bin Laden.
of that, but it's from something online. I got it right away FWIW #InsideTwitterJokes
And the AD get fired, I wonder if Al Davis will have any interest in the OSU AD job? I can't think of a better use for Al Davis, other than dying of course. Saying that, we all must realize that Al Davis will out live us all.
to stay at the helm as long as he can, even if his fingernails break off, one by one, in holding on. Every extra day helps Michigan.
So does Morgan trent
I am hearing that is soothing Buckeye souls right now is that Urban Meyer now lives in Arlington, OH (Columbus suburb) and is ready to accept the job when it opens.
This is no sarcasm and the lady that told me this is old enough to be my mother (her husband is a big $$ Buckeye supporter), and I'm 40. She has entertained me for years.
That rumor has been going around for a while now, so who knows. Also, Les Miles bought a house in Ann Arbor twice over the last four years I think. These rumors happen all the time.
However, if it were to happen, my hatred for Urban Meyer would be up there with just about anyone.

He still has his house in Gainesville: http://www.acpafl.org/searchowner.asp
Or surprise, because you've never been to Columbus?
I emailed a guy I work with the list of all the known infractions, and his only response was that at least Ohio State is honest about thier cheating. I simply laughed and reminded him that Tressel lied, but that they wont have to worry about him much longer.
Michigan fans outnumber OSU fans at least 3 to 1, not sure how that went un-responded-to
