LINKNFL ROUNDUP: Bengals' Perry rips OSU's coach, QB
November 15, 2006
CINCINNATI -- Former Michigan star running back Chris Perry trashed Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and quarterback Troy Smith while he made a prediction for the Big Game between the Wolverines and Buckeyes on Saturday.
"It's a blowout," Perry told the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News. "Ain't no ifs, ands or buts about it. (Defensive tackle Alan) Branch is going to knock the stuffing out of -- what's his name -- Troy Smith. You all set that (Heisman Trophy talk) up anyway. That's some B.S. to begin with.
"He shouldn't even win the Heisman. He's not going to win his league or the national championship. We all know what's going to happen. We're going to win it. It's been long overdue. Tressel's been cheating. So, hey, we're going to keep it real. There ain't nothing else to say."
I was starting to warm up to him till this nonsense. Tressel cheats? Come on. What a bone-headed accusation to make.
Yes, U of M fans, this guys represents your school. Why am I not surprised?
