You're going to honor the guy that made this your last game of the season in the first place? Are they gonna bring Maurice back too? Whatever. They obviously still don't believe he did anything wrong since he gave the whole team a pep talk before leaving for Ann Arbor last year or something. Question.

Would you be okay with honoring the Fab Five? Me personally, I don't know if I would. Yes, they were a group of talent that will probably never be matched and were icons, but they helped to set the whole basketball program back.

It's Michigan/Ohio State, it's the tenth anniversary of the 2002 Buckeyes team, and it's free temporary tattoo day at Ohio Stadium.

Get there early for your free Ohio State stick-on tattoo, and take part in some half-assed pregame calisthenics with confused Buckeye students!

To Ohio fans, the ends justified the means.  Tressel cheated before the hire and continued for a decade and did so knowingly.  The Fab Five cheated but they did so as kids and Fisher did not know.  Both were against the rules, but I think what Tressel did was worse on many levels but all Ohio fans care about is winning.  You can bet if this scenario had played out at Michigan that Tressel would be treated as a cancer instead of some legend to be honored.  Screw Ohio anyway.
