At some point, do you have to hold Jim Tressel accountable for continually struggling to win big-time matchups? This will be the 5th consecutive year that Tressel's OSU team has lost to a Top-3 team:
2009: Lost to #3 USC
2008: Lost to #1 USC, Lost to #3 Penn State, Lost to #3 Texas
2007: Lost to #2 LSU (National Title Game)
2006: Lost to #2 Florida (National Title Game)
2005: Lost to #2 Texas, Lost to #18 Penn State
With each passing year, 2002 gets further in the rear-view mirror. Assuming this loss effectively derails OSU's national title hopes for 2009 (which may or may not be the case), should Jim Tressel be fired at the end of 2009? Is it time for new blood to take over in Columbus?
