08:20 AM ET 04.27 | Jim Tressel's job status is tied to a great deal of money. Tressel could lose $3.7 million a year if he resigned or gets fired for his role in the Tattoo-gate mess the Buckeyes are embroiled in with the NCAA. Tressel is scheduled to earn that much annually through 2014, according to his contract obtained by Columbus Business First, a sister paper to the Dayton Business Journal, but Ohio State could be off the hook for paying him if the coach is found to have violated any of its termination-for-cause provisions. The saga took another twist Monday with the disclosure of a letter sent by the NCAA to Ohio State President Gordon Gee.

If we do, the soup Nazi will be saying, "NO SOUP FOR YOU"!

What about my "Hire Addazio" campaign? IMO that was the best one. HUGE upgrade on the OC (pun intended)

Nah.

He'll want to know if the Vest wants to trade some trinkets for some soup.

Good point. You should be on FJJ's team too.

FJJ, that's five, so you have enough for a starting team. Now go out there and make us all proud!
