Breaking News: Jim Tressel Resigns

An about face decision which closely aligns with his public persona of integrity, Jim Tressel has tendered his resignation as head football coach of Ohio State University after posting a 106-22 record in ten seasons. Jim Tressel stated, "After meeting with university officials, we agreed that it is in the best interest of Ohio State that I resign as head football coach. The appreciation that (my wife) Ellen and I have for the Buckeye Nation is immeasurable." The embattled Tressel's mark at the school will be a dichotomy of building a winning dynastic program balanced against controversial NCAA run-ins on the fringes. Time will only tell which way the scales tip. Ohio State still faces a round of NCAA hearings and a long-term process to deal with the aftermath of the coaches mishandling of apparently known rule infractions. In my opinion, this action does help OSU's position as they move forward as the issues isolate the coach. OSU still potentially face lack of institutional control allegations as additional insiders reveal a program that had a few, or many, rotten apples who took advantage of rank and privilege. Hat tip to patienthornsfan for posting the announcement. His question, "So does Pryor enter the supplemental draft now? If there is one that is," is a fitting testament to the reality that now faces a star Buckeye athlete. What a mess. - TXStampede
