Ohio High School football coach tribute to Tressel...

What a joke...The Ohio High School Football Coaches Association is proposing a tribute to Jim Tressel by having the football coaches wear a white shirt and tie (sweater vest optional) for the first game this fall.

How delusional are these people?? Who in their right mind wants to pay tribute to a man that has consistently lied and cheated his way to the top?

Good luck in your "retirement" Jim, your flock is still behind you...

next we'll have Ohio High Schoolers getting tattoos and rides for autographs and high school memorabilia.

You know ... Tyrelle Pryor tribute ... this is beyond ridiculous.

Let me tell you whats not going to happen....I am a coach in Ohio and will not be rocking a vest week 1 or any other week. Several members on the staff are tsio fans, but I can't imagine them doing this. For coaches to do this would require a staff to think that was as important as the actual game. Beyond ridiculous.

Thank goodness some coaches in Ohio have integrity.  I like this quote from Strongsville's head coach:

"When [former OSU] Coach [Woody] Hayes was fired, did the high school football coaches honor him that first week of the season? He did a lot more for high school football and Ohio State than Tressel did. "And he didn't 'lie!'"

I agree with him completely.  I guess he didn't get the memo that Tressel "retired" and wasn't fired.  I think Coach Kyle in the article grew up watching too much Mr. Rogers.
