very interesting rumor..
December 25, 2010  08:44 PM ET

I am sure this has nothing ta do with recruiting....I am sure JT would not leave over this, he would have other way's to handle his people. So this is just a crock!

Go Bucks!

svt, I hope it is just a rumor. I have heard Tressel say many times that he would not coach too lng into retirement age, that he would like to just teach some, when he is through. I am afraid we may be finding out how serious he is about teaching.

Who the heck do we get to replace coach Tressel? GEESH!!!

How about the Coach from App state!

It's all a Sham. I'm leaving.. win for me! No its.. my last game! It can't be your last game, it's my last game!

JimmyT is being forced out because he signed an autograph for a vest tattoo on the small of his back but when he was done, it was maize-blue "wings". He also wants to be in the pool for the PSU and Michigan jobs. His overtures to Florida were rebuffed because he cited two recent national championship games on his resume.

Ah, I hope it isn't true. Tressel is one of my all-time favorites in the game.

I think its all bull - this is a bad rumor started by OSU hater jumping on tatyoogate. When he leaves it will be a surprise and unexpected. He has the talent in his pool to be very competitive for the next 4 years. if he wins a NC then expect it. He just signed a new contract

not buying it.

it definitely could be, but you never know.. personally i dont believe it, but normally rumors like this dont come out of left field..

Jim Tressel would not exit in this fashion so it is probably some jackass just revealing the beauty that is the Internet.

No one is out there who I think could do as well as Tressel has done there. No matter who they hire, Ohio State will not be the same when Tressel leaves. More than likely they'll hire someone who will do a passable job at any other school, but won't be good enough for tOSU fans used to the Tressel Years.

The list is VERY short of schools that have managed to follow-up great coaches with another great coach. I can only think of two offhand that have pulled it off.

Gee's gotta go. Please, stay, JT.

All Bull-S***. Tressel would not go out this way. Can't put the behavior of a few bad apples on JT. He will not miss any sleep if any of those players leave early. As they say in Columbus We don't rebuild We reload.I can promise you this. Terrel Pryors' pro football audition will be the Sugar Bowl. He is too selfish and arrogant to accept his punishment like a man. He's gone because now it's about Terrel Pryor not The Ohio State Buckeyes.

WB: completely on the level...are you pleasantly surprised that all five are staying? Or, would you rather some (or all) of them would have bailed?

Next season will be interesting. Almost two half seasons.

Hang on Sloopy.
