Never discount what a group laying a blank check in front of someone can do. Two critical parts of the decision, I think, for Tress will be #1: Does he need 40 million dollars at this point in his life.
#2: Is there a little minion inside of him relishing a chance to play Ohio State, beat them, and in his Senatorial way, smile, say nothing, and ride off into the sunset.
And no, I don't know the answer to either of those questions....but he would surely be walking into a dumpster fire. But on a separate note, he would surely be able to hold onto a lot of their recruits and lock down the borders in the future ala Tom Herman in Texas.
