Huggins turned UC into a "big time program". Hopefully Kelly decides to do the same. The pieces are there for him to do it. A BCS conference, growing fan base, a coach that excites and plays an exciting type of football, brand new facilities, and a talent rich location. However, I do agree with you that a job like Oklahoma would be tough to turn down, but there's not too many programs out there that are on the level of the Oklahoma's and Ohio State's.
And speaking of Oklahoma, I have a crazy gut feeling that UC will knock them off in Norman in week two. I may be crazy, but I don't think it's a far-fetched as many do. UC's defense is one of the tops in the nation, so if they can cause a couple turnovers and hang with them until late they might be able to pull off a surprise. West Virginia drilled them in the bowl game last year, and UC lost to WVU by less than a TD (that might not be a fair comparison though since the bowl game was at a neutral site and UC had WVU at home). We'll see, but I look forward to seeing the line for that game.
Sorry for hijacking this thread...I do really like Tressel by the way and that's a nice gesture for him to donate those items.
