You left out Will Smith, Mike Doss, Chris Gamble, and Michael Jenkins. The roster Tress inherited was loaded with NFL talent. Lets not forget Tressel also ended his career with 1 title. With the talent that was there through his tenure I don't want to say we underacheived but we should have easily had more than 1 national championship. I think Meyer ends up with more in the same time span.
I hate to say it but I feel like generally Tress gets a pass more often then he should (especially from older fans) because he brought OSU a title when we had been craving one for so long. After '03 I feel like some of his missteps got overlooked simply because of that one title run and partly because of the faith/moral aspect he brought to the table. Great man and great coach but I'll take Urban 100 times out of 100.
