Tressel to Announce Resignation From Ohio State Today at Noon

Two days ago, Jim Tressel said he has never once considered stepping down as the Ohio State Buckeyes football coach.

Today, he appears to have had (a forced) change of heart...

With all the turmoil and controversy regarding his actions over the past 12 months, this ultimately comes as no surprise.

His legacy at OSU and the football program are tarnished, both with black eyes and each are a national punchline and media punching bag.

So, the time has finally come to part ways. I wish Tress all the best.

Let the Urban Meyer watch officially begin in a little over 5 hours from now...

  5. Wow Dave, sounds like your period better take some Midol before the cramps get worse and you get ever more butthurt...

  6. @Dave:


    Seriously, did you just say I am guilty of slander?

    That's a better joke than mine Dave. Don't the let the door hit hit you on your "butthurt" (to quote the anonymous poster above) backside.

    You won't be missed, and by the way, the article on elevenwarriors is stupid!

    The fact remains that Tressel could ultimately lose his job over this, but yes, indeed, today's "report" was a simple April Fool's joke.

    Talk about a classic over-reaction.......

  7. At least you admit that your "joke" was not funny and upset a few people this morning. Us Buckeye fans are on edge enough as it is!

  8. Us Buckeye fans are on edge enough as it is!

    In case anyone didn't notice, I'm kind of a Buckeye fan too.....Maybe the whole blog/website thing didn't make it obvious enough...?


  9. Dave, you may have removed your comment (not sure why you left it in the 1st place), but I am reposting it so that it can live on forever:

    WORST. JOKE. EVER. Don't you understand Buckeye Nation has put up with enough negative news lately? Why couldn't you have fun on April fools day instead of slander and maliciously report lies. I won't be returning to this blog. Look at what your friends did over on eleven warriors. THAT WAS FUNNY. Good day.

  10. hahahahaahahahahaahaha
    looks like april fools day all over again

  11. Well, I was right, and even though this was a joke on 4/1/11, I fully expected this to become a reality, and I was right!
