A year after Tressel's resignation, how do you feel about how the whole situation played out?

Tressel is still a saint in my book!

Wherever you are, there you be!


Still don't like how he was treated and portrayed by the media. 
But what's done is done

Much like Dorothy Mantooth, James Patrick Tressel is a saint. Do you hear me? A saint!!

^^^^^ I bet for memorial day last year, gene smith took JT out for a nice seafood dinner and never called him again!

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

Still not embracing the Meyer hire. I know he's a great coach, but I spent the last five years hating the guy. Kind of hard to just 180 like that.

As much as I loved having Tress on the sidelines,  (to me, it was almost like we had a secret weapon) I'm really trying to embrace our new coach and the future with him.
Tress will always be my Woody Hayes, however I am ready for UFM to make his case.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I never hated Meyer, just Tebow lol I can't hate Ohio guys unless they are associated with scUM. I most likely will never forget it, it could have been handled better, I lost a little respect for Pryor and Tress that day. Meyer helps a little, but a 12-0 season and a national championship in the 2013 season will make it much easier to not think about.

I clicked "Still angry," but after reading Ramzy's article, I want to clarify that I'm not angry with JT.  I'm angry with how the Buckeyes were covered in the national media.  I'm angry with Dohrmann and SI for their laughably false "reporting."  I'm angry with ESPN for the daily, non-stop drumbeat insisting on nothing less than Tressel's head on a platter.   Although I was disappointed with Tressel, I was never angry at him.  (If you've never screwed up at your job and then misrepresented the situation afterwards to try to save your ass, then congratulations on your sainthood.)

Real fans stay for Carmen.

I put I am over it, but I think Meyer is helping a little. I loved Tress, his style made me nuts sometimes but he won and won a lot especially against Michigan which the previous coach couldn't do, or else OSU would have a few more National titles. I mean tress went 8-1 vs Michigan, went to 3 National title games and won 1, and was what 6-3 in BCS bowl games I'll take that every 10 years.
