I've always appreciated the way Coach Tress handle the media. He did his best to protect his team and keep football team issues in the locker room -- that is how I was raised to be with respect to my family, we were taught to keep our business amongst us and to always show strength and support for one another in public. In our present social media/internet culture, Tressel's approach definitely does not fit in. However, Coach Tress never cared about that while he was the head coach of our football team. He was his own man, had his own beliefs, and stuck by them, always showing respect to the folks with whom he interacted.
Meyer, on the other hand, is a hit with our social media/internet culture. Lots of folks get all giddy with his tough talk and hip catch phrases -- "he's a grown ass man," "he got the juice," "we have the best (insert position) in the country," "it's all about the chase."
Meyer's approach isn't my style, but as long as continues to run a clean program and rack of the Ws, I'm good with him. End of the day, it's not what is said, it's what's done.
