Wasn't Tressel there as part of the ceremony they did prior to the game honoring the 2002 National Championship team? It makes perfect sense to me that the crowd would give him a huge ovation during that moment. That was a pretty special season! And count me as another fan who isn't going to punish the guy forever for his mistakes. We all make mistakes....we just get to make ours out of the spotlight of college football.
And I LOVE beating that team up north! My Twitter feed was full of obnoxious MI 'fans' tweeting way too much smack talk during the first half of the game but they were totally nonexistent during the second half, LOL
