O-H is usually followed with an I-O! This week, however, is different. A dark cloud is hanging over Buckeye Nation. This week.......O-H is followed by N-O! Ohno!
Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel fell from the graces this week. His "Senator Tressel" and "In Tress We Trust" good boy inmage is now tarnished. The University has suspended him for 2 games, fined him $250,000 and ordered him to a compliance program. ALL stemming from the now infamous "tattoo case."
Like many other Buckeye Faithful, I watched the Tuesday press conference. Do I believe everything Tressel said....no. Do I think he did anything intentionally to tarnish OSU's reputation.....no. Do I think Tressel's reputation will take a hit....yes. Do I think The Ohio State University's reputation will take a hit....yes.
And....I may be in the minority, but I believe that Jim Tressel was solely looking out for his players. Right or wrong in Tressel doing what he did, all of Buckeye Nation will serve the punishment. 5 games for the coach. 2 games for the coach (and that's BEFORE the NCAA rules on the case.)
Ohio State is getting beat up in the media. Everywhere you turn....blogs, articles, news reports, newspapers.....It's tough to listen to. But....TRUE BUCKEYES will stand by Tressel and the team. It might be a long year for Buckeyes but.....stay true and stay a fan. Now more than ever is when they need you.
