Sweatervest Memories

OSU FootballIt’s hard to believe that it’s only been seven years since Jim Tressel was hired as coach of the Ohio State University Buckeyes.

Since then he’s gone 66-14, a record which is bested by only Pete Carroll of USC. Not counting his inaugural year, he’s running with an insane 85% winning percentage.

In the past five years alone, Tressel has competed for two BCS titles, winning one, and finished ranked 4th or higher four times. And he’s done that mostly by playing “Tressellball,” a low-risk, anti-West Coast style of play.

And of course, he’s owned the Wolverines, winning five of six matchups.

So, without further adoration, we at MotSaG have assembled a small photo album showcasing some highlights of Sweatervest’s seven years at OSU. It’s what we like to “imagine” what might be representative of his tenure and coaching style at The Ohio State University.
