I can only think of one worse name: Flounder. I actually ran into a guy who had that as a given first name. He showed me his driver's license because I didn't believe him. I don't know how he got the name, maybe from his parents watching Animal House, but he was not big like the character in that movie, so I don't know. People need to think of the problems these kids are going to have with these weird names before they get carried away.

Absolutely the best headline since this scandal began!

Of course the parents who were insipid enough to name a child "Tressel" would not have become well-balanced in their decision-making ability to regret such stupidity!

Ohio, you take the cake. No wonder Kasich and the Republicans are raking in the dough and most Ohioans are suffering. Too many Ohio parents liking the name "Tressel".

Kids, when you get old enough, sue your parents.

We have a rescue dog named Tressel, prior to our adoption.l. SHE is a great dog, and we love her so much. Most of our neighbors have asked if we are going to change her name. NO WAY. Coach Tressel will go down as one the greatest coach of OSU. He brought back tradition to OSU. In the end, he will be one of the best things that happened to OSU football.

If future coaches build on Tressel's "tradition," football may end up permanently abolished at OSU.

A year ago, the Dispatch would have framed this story as parents honoring an honorable man by naming their children after the only tosu coach to walk on water. This year, it is a story living in the reality of children burdened with the name of a lying, cheating guy in a sweatervest.

These parents should be beaten with sticks.

Yeah...like Marion Morrison (John Wayne)or Leslie Nielsen. Gees, they didn't amount to a hill of beans! But try Dyke, Timber, Skiff and Brick who all live in Alaska. Yes, they really exist because I met their father at the bank where I worked. They are looney in Alaska. I oughta know because I lived there for a while. It was more like Northern Exposure than you might have guessed.
