Honestly, I got plenty of enjoyment out of this season. BCS bowls are fun, but they are something else anyway. They have never felt all that connected to the actual season, what with being 5-6 weeks after the end of the regular season.
What you guys seem to be saying is that since Tressel is such a great guy that he is immune to criticism. That it's everybody else's fault but his. I guarantee you that you and your fellow Buckeye fans didn't take the same approach when tOSU lost a game.
