Billboard mocks Tressel

08:18 AM ET 05.03 | The renewed rivalry has its most visible symbol yet. There was a sense the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry had been rekindled when new Wolverines coach Brady Hoke installed a clock that counts down to the annual game inside Schembechler Hall. Consider the bar raised once again this offseason. Someone, ostensibly a Michigan football fan, paid for a billboard ad along Interstate 94 westbound outside Detroit near DTW that reads: "Liar, Liar, Vest On Fire!" The sign, if you live under a rock, is a reference to embattled, sweater-vest-clad Ohio State coach Jim Tressel, who has been the subject of an NCAA investigation that produced a Notice of Allegations last week.

Don't make fun of the fact that I live under a rock. The mortgage is outstanding.

If I were a TSUN fan I think I would wait until I had a team that could handle the bucknuts before I started yapping my pie hole.

the U of M is just happy the spotlight is finally off of Richie Rod's transgressions, and the state of their program.

+1 He shouldn't have opened his pie hole either.

And he really disciplines his employees when their behavior is bad, huh?

It reminds me of the kid watching the clock at school who is going to get his arse whipped at the flag pole after school!

At least you guys aren't poisioning any trees up there.

Gotta love Buckeye fans who continue to take shots at other schools, when clearly all the success OSU has had is now under a microscope. From the blown call that gave OSU a tainted title at the U's expense, to all the cheating by the vest (from Clarett to Pryor and beyond) - OSU has shown they belong in the SEC - not in terms of success - but clearly in terms of putting winning ahead of integrity. OSU confirms this by backing the Vest. 90% of the time these charges lead to the coach being FIRED. Which OSU would do - you know, if they had any integrity. But OSU will continue to pay their players under the table, and turn the other cheek so they can win some football games.

How sad for OSU and their backers.
