I have not commented on 11W for awhile now.  And those of you who are *really* regulars know my handle.  From the first day that Hoke was hired as Michigan's head coach I was ecstatic.  I figured, at that point, that Tressel would be good for 2 or 3 more wins over Mi****** before Hoke righted the ship and made this rivalry competitive.

Now that both schools are faced with new coaching hires I am, at the very least, curious, to see how this rivalry will pan out.  "Ohio" may continue its recent dominance or the Wolverines may strike back.

I believe this Game, this year, will have a major impact on this rivalry.  If Fickell is able to man a team that *only* loses to those b'stards up north, his job will be in doubt, to say the least.  The fact of the matter is, he only has a one year contract at this point, and his performance will be judged on this ONE season.  If he he even comes close to winning a conference championship AND beats you-know-who, he might have a career ahead of him at Ohio State.

 

If he loses 3, 4, (God help me) 5 games this year, not only will he not be the head coach next year, we will lose him forever as an assistant.  (Assuming of course that the next coach *Urban Meyer(?)* does not want him.

 

In a perfect world, Fickell leads this team to an undefeated season and completely demorilizes the 'Rines (to the tune of 85-0), hires Urban Meyer as an offensive coordinater in the off-season and leads our Buckeyes to a national title in his second year the same way "Uncle Tressel" did.

A "lame duck?"  Far from it.  Tressel is going to be the coach of this university's football team as long as he wants to.  Unless this turns into a chain of events resulting in major major MAJOR violations, he will be here until he retires.

I love the fact that Tressel gave himself a 5 game ban.  On the one hand, I feel it is to stave off further NCAA sanctions, on the other hand I feel like its just his character showing through.

If Ohio State was to go 5-0 or 0-5 or any mixture in between in the coming year the one thing that I would be glad about is knowing that the head coach of Ohio State football is Jim Tressel.  Hands down.

Kirk Herbstreit can say whatever he wants, that's his God given right as an American.  But, let's look at the big picture here, in chronological order:

1. Cam Newton's father asks for up to $200,000 for his son's commitment, allegedly without Cam's knowledge.

2. Alabama may, or may not (?) be paying for upgrades to a Florida high school's field and locker room for "player safety." A high school which will soon be the alma mater for a 5-star recruit who may or may not be going to 'Bama.

3.  Ohio State players, who are still unnamed, may or may not have been compensated for tattoos with autographed photos/memorabilia/shoes/cars/grills/banners/posters/sportscenter highlights.

So, considering Cam Newton can play in the NCG, Alabama is not being investigated at all, and Ohio State is being INTERNALLY investigated, there is no precedent, and therefore no reason, why Ohio State should suspend players for the Sugar Bowl.
