Wow. "Tragic Hero?" Come on Dantonio I know he's your guy but "rise above it all" suggests that the mess was created by somebody else. OSU's coach has only himself to blame. He had all the power to do the right thing.

Come on Harry. You are reading way too much into Dantonio's comments.

Tressel is a tragic hero who made a supid mistake, partly out of his own arrogance... and took a terrible fall. I think Dantonio is saying that tressels's legacy will survive this one tragic fall. Maybe not at ESPN and SI but certainly in the eyes of his former players, his coaches, his fellow coaches ...and who else really counts other than the peole who really know you.

I feel bad for Tress in a way. His legacy is tarnished over one lousy decision. I think that his punishment was just but I can't help but feel the tragedy of the whole situation.

We have all made dumb mistakes in our lives but very few of us have that one bad decision ruin our legacy for all-time in the eyes of a very large portion of the population.

The crap coaches pull in the next 3 yrs will make Tressell look like an angel. The NCAA is going to go through a metamorphis. It will have to or will not have any marquee teams on the field. In just 3 short years Tressell's transgressions will not even be mentioned. Sold memrobilia for tattoos? Cut me a break. He shouldnt have even resigned. That whole thing got taken way to serious from everybody including us.

"Well," he said, "I don't think we're rebuilding. Period. We're Michigan."

The hilarious thing is the scum fans actually believe in this garbage. Has Hokey-Pokey not realized what that team he is charge of now has done the last couple of years!?!

App St???......"I don't think we're rebuilding. Period. We're Michigan."

Toledo???......"I don't think we're rebuilding. Period. We're Michigan."

Utah???......"I don't think we're rebuilding. Period. We're Michigan."

1-8 record in the B1G in 09???......"I don't think we're rebuilding. Period. We're Michigan."

All these scum fans sound exactly like they did three years ago when they made that other hire. Keep up the great hires tsun!!!

"I don't think we're rebuilding. Period. We're Michigan."..........BHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

MI hired Hoke who has a record of 47-50. If MI is who they say they are, then why did they hire a coach with this record? hahahaha

Like I've always said, They are a bunch of ignorant simpletons who spend they're enire paychecks down at the local Walmart.

I'm perfectly fine with them being who they say they are if they are satisfied with being trash, then let them be trash.

DEATH PENALTY FOR OSU

#11 Jul 29, 2011
It is clear after all is said and done, regardless of what happens, the OSU has become a bullshit clownshow of an institution. OSU will try to act like it's all in the past but has fundamentally altered it's culture through this process.


Michigan cannot respect OSU after this, and you don't really have a rival if you don't have (hatred +) respect.

And MICHIGAN will CONTINUE to be the Laughingstock of College Football for the App State debacle. Hell, I have the SI Cover framed in My Office and anyone who comes in "gets a GOOD Laugh". scUM has absolutely NO ROOM to judge ANYONE. And Toledo at The Outhouse..........it doesn't get Any Better! SCREW the BLUE!

Michigan doesn't need to respect OSU. OSU doesn't want their respect. They will just take more wins from them on the field. That is if there are enough Michigan players to play a game since they all seem to spend some time in jail.
