A Moment with Jim Tressel

By Jason Priestas on October 4, 2012 at 1:41a

Jim Tressel made his debut with WKYC and in the segment, he touches on team spirit, the power of the Olympics and the importance of personal achievements contributing to the team:

"I was once asked 'What's the most important characteristic of a championship team?' The word that popped into my mind was 'unselfishness'. Every championship team I've been with has been unselfish. Guys weren't worried about their rushing stats or how many tackles they made. They were concerned mostly with the team."

It was nice to see Tress on camera again and his message rings true, but he may have to add a little zest to his stories if he wants to make me a regular. We're going to need the dirt on the locker room after the '07 BCS Championship Game, or at the very least, a reflection on his halftime speech at the Superdome last January.

Funny, he didn't mention 'integrity'...

A little innuendo how he maybe fell on the sword for the univ. perhaps would rake in the viewers...
jus sayin. Why let truth get in the way of a good story? ;)

I will always have fond memories of Coach Tressel and it's good to see him spreading a positive message and being in the public eye once again.

How about they get rid of the news completely and just have "Several moments with Jim Tressel". And it airs on all stations. TV and radio. And Pandora.

I miss me some Tress, but indeed at times he can put you to sleep.

I guess I'm the only one who just doesn't thing that Tress was the same guy that we all thought he was.

Man, I miss that guy...  But it hurts my eyeballs to see him wearing blue and yellow.  Seriously.

I miss Tress. For me, hiring Urban "we kicked your butt in 2007" Meyer was like hiring the Anti_Christ. But he has grown on me.
For me the scoresheet for Jim Tressel is and will always be all even; because he had to suffer through that one incredible punishment of walking intro the house, looking Ellen right in the eyes and telling her, "I just lost my job that pays $4.0 million a year". I can't imagine living through that moment and it will remain unequal with any other punishment they could have given him...

Seems out of place in Zips colors and without the vest.

Tressel looks good. I'm thankful for all the good times he brought to OSU, and hope he has continued success in the future.
