OSU Coach Tressel Resigns Amid 11th Season

When you make a big mistake, do you feel bad about it? Most people do; it’s called having a conscience. Because of the guilt associated with the mistake, most people apologize for what they did. Being apologetic after you made a boo-boo is in our DNA; it’s what makes us human. When a dog accidently knocks over a vase, does he show any emotion? I don’t think he does; however, I am not normally around dogs, so whoever is can gladly correct me. My main point is: most people do not need to be TOLD to apologize. Instead, they take it upon themselves to accept what they’ve done and….apologize. They just do it..Apparently, former OSU football coach Jim Tressel isn’t normal. After allegations of failing to

report (to the NCAA) knowledge of players selling memorabilia, Tress was suspended for 5 games of the 2011-2012 season. Honestly, I expected him to apologize on his own, without anyone telling him what to do. However, this was not the case, as the sanctions brought upon him FORCED him to apologize. He could’ve apologized as soon as the allegations were brought up; but NO, he had to be a stubborn old man. On Memorial Day 2011 (May 30th), Jim Tressel officially resigned as head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. I can’t wait to see where he’ll end up next.

  1. I have no doubt about these:

    1) He’s a good football coach.

    2) He’s a poor administrator.

    3) He’ll coach again.

      Afrankangle, you are found correct on all counts. Where do you think he’ll coach next?

      • Probably in a non-BCS conf, D1 team that wants to make a splash. Downside is that he has strong Ohio roots, thus would he be willing to move. Time will tell.

        Others may point to the NFL.

        lol Him in the NFL would not go well..(rhyme)

        Yea ur prob right, maybe after that he can join a better school..

  2. Back in December, which was when the story broke out, I knew right then that Tressel was a goner. He’s no Joe Paterno.

      I always knew he wasn’t a Joe Paterno; however I never thought he’d leave before next season.
