OT: Anti-Tressel Columbus Radio Host Fired

Bruce Hooley, who hosted the early afternoon "Big Show" on 97.1 with Chris Spielman and admittedly was never in the bag for OSU, was removed from the air because he had the temerity to call for harsher punishment for Jim Tressel. Maybe he can move into Kirk Herbstreit's new house in Nashville. http://www.brucehooley.com/Blog.html

I did my final shows Wednesday and Thursday of last week in the aftermath of the press conference at Ohio State announcing head coach Jim Tressel's NCAA violations in the Tattoo-Gate case. My show was pre-empted Friday by Ohio State's opener in the Big Ten Tournament. Late Friday afternoon, my attorney, Bret Adams, received a call telling me not to report to work on Monday. Mr. Van Stone said he wanted to meet with Bret to discuss re-assigning me to other duties. That's when Bret and I suggested we explore a separation that would be satisfactory to both parties.

Let's see how the voluntary five games goes for you, Jimmy.
