    Excellent read. That has to be some serious riding time if you are checking to see if all of those freshman are in class...

    I love this part:

    In those times where I am frustrated with some facet of the on field performance of the team I think of all the other things Tress does to develop the young men. I wouldn't trade him for any other coach. We have the right guy.

    I'll bet someone at ESPN is thinking about how they can tie this "illegal assistance" into Tressel's shady past at YSU. :roll1:

    I sent the link and a C&P to Tom Friend with the message, "Thought you could use this as part of your investigaion of Ohio State's Football team".

    You think he'll use it?:tongue2:

    Yeah.. but the only thing he'll say is how Ohio State is illegally ensuring that the football players are passing tests, when they do not offer the same assistance to non-football students.

    JohnnyCockfight Beer is God's proof that he loves us.

    I got my picture taken with and autographed by Coach Conaster when Tressel & staff were first hired. It's great to see him back with Ohio State, where he belongs.

    Illegal is a poor choice of words there bro...

    Preferential maybe, but not at all illegal

    The words Tom Friend would use is his point I think.. and he's probably pretty close... Tom would work "Cheat" in for sure.

    Attendance and doing assigned work is an almost sure fire way to be successful academically. This is true for all students.

    Gary Williams did something similar when he was at OSU. I remember OSU had a late Tuesday night game at IU (circa 9:15 pm tip off; remember how Knight bitched about that and how it was unfair to the student-athlete?) and Wednesday morning I was going to the 9:00 am class I taught, and standing in the hall outside my room was Randy Ayers. I asked if I could help him and he asked if I was the instructor in the room next to mine. I said no. He then said that the team didn't get back from IU until 3:00 am, but Coach Williams told the team that he expected everyone to be in their first class of the day. Ayers was checking up on Treg Lee. Since Treg did not start the next game, and saw very limited action in the 1st half, I surmised that he didn't make it to class. It was never reported why Treg didn't start (one of those internal discipline deals was the reason). (Sometime in the off season when it is kinda slow I will share why Alonzo Spellman missed the Liberty Bowl.)

    Disagree bro...even ESPN wouldn't be so stupid to use that phrasing...well maybe but not likely:roll2:

    Google news search "Ohio State Football Illegal"

    Maybe the phrasing is off... but they'll say Maurice said something that was illegal. :wink2:

    Man, JT must be working some magic if he can tell his kids not to wear their lids in class and to sit in the front rows.
    I echo the statement that we have the right guy at the steering wheel.
