08:15 AM ET 05.31 | Who saw this one coming? There's one name already bouncing around the NFL as a possible long-term Tressel replacement: Jon Gruden. That name isn't a shock, of course. Gruden will be linked to many big-time coaching openings, in college and the pros. But over the past few months, and before Tressel was kicked out on his ass, Gruden told more than a few people he was antsy and desired a return to coaching. One assistant told me Gruden hasn't been shy about it, either. Indeed, Gruden and Ohio State would be a perfect fit (though Urban Meyer might be even more perfect). Expect the usual Gruden denial to the Ohio State speculation but don't believe it for a second. Repeat: don't believe it. He'd listen and take it if offered.

With the sanctions he will be looking at, you would think he'd get some latitude while he installed his program.

Would he do it, though?


And - tOSU fans - how long before Gee is fired?

My thoughts exactly. The sanctions would buy him time to bring in his own recruits and put his own indelible stamp on the program. By the time they are lifted OSU will be ready to compete again for a national championship.

Wow, journalism at it's finest - kicked out on his ****.
And a non rumor, for the rumor mill.

The sisters of the poor school will take Gee since he spoke so highly of them.

Tressel fell on his sword like any good solider, Gee is protected, and Smith (the AD) is protected.

IMHO that's a shame. They should feel some of that sword as well.
