In no way do I mean disrespect to my Dad, may he RIP, but


Sometimes I wish Jim Tressel was my Dad.

And we'll drink to old Ohio, 'Til we wobble in our shoes!

I like to think he is all of our Dad's.  My Dad was more Woody then JT.

Tress cracks me up.

I love when reporters come in trying to get some quotes for their pre-made stories about whatever the latest fuss is on the internet, and Tress just gives them a complete "I haven't looked into that and I don't really care, why are you bothering me with trivia?"

Makes me wonder just what portion of that is real and what portion is a show to keep from saying anything.

Yeah.  I think he definitely knows what he's doing.  The senator moniker is out there for a great reason -- he'd make an outstanding politician in the sense that he'd NEVER say anything to cause trouble for himself.

Although he slipped up a little on the "Pryor to NFL" question.

Of course, if I were a junior there's no way I wouldn't check to see where I'd go. Wouldn't necessarily mean I wasn't coming back.

Good to hear that Rod Smith and Ty Williams are looking good. It'll be exciting to see them in spring/next year after a year in the system. I'm looking for big things from Rod especially.
