By this time everyone is well aware of the deep doodoo Jim Tressel is in at Ohio State for having swept information about Tattoogate under the rug for at least six months before the story broke. The NCAA has come down hard on Tressel, but we’ll have to see how the administration at tOSU treats this mess. This Turkey thinks Tressel ought to be given his walking papers.
Tressel’s malfeasance brings back old memories of another Ohio State head coach — a legendary one at that — who was forced to retire shortly after punching a Clemson player who had just intercepted an OSU pass with the clock winding down and with Clemson ahead by two. It was 1978, and the scene was the old Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida. Have a look!
