Plus while I love Tressel, I still think Meyer is the better coach.
If Tressel came clean about Tatgate when he first found out about it, Pryor would have still been suspended and most likely would have gone pro like he did anyway. tOSU would have paid their penance last year while Miller was the QB. They wouldn't have gone to a bowl last year and he would have had the same amount of experience he did this year. Whether Tressel would have gone undefeated with this bunch is speculation. While Tressel may not be the same caliber coach as Urban Meyer, he was certainly no slouch and could very well have guided the Buckeyes to an undefeated season and a possible shot at the BCS Championship. You have to think an undefeated tOSU trumps a 1 loss Alabama.
