Conley And Company To Coach Spring Game

It looks like Coach Tressel is doing his part to help convince Mike Conley, Greg Oden and Daequan Cook to stay in school. Conley has been named an honorary head coach for Saturday's Spring Game and the rest of the hoops squad will be on hand, except for Oden, who will instead attend his auntie's wedding.

The hoopsters will actually call the plays, according to the article, and Conley appears to have his offensive gameplan ready:
"I play my share of video games," he said Wednesday. "I like to get up and down the field with the passing game. I'll mix in some run plays here and there as well."

The article says Tress came up with the idea and it's clear he's hoping it will have an impact on Conley and Daequan Cook based on his comments:

"I certainly want them around here. If we have to put them on the staff to do that, then we'll do it," he said with a grin.

As for the game itself, The O-Zone has your Scarlet and Gray rosters.
