    I guess it depends on your perspective. Tressel may not have been a big name nationally when OSU hired him, but he was wildly popular in the northern part of Ohio because he came from an Ohio coaching family, had experience at OSU and had spent years running a successful program at YSU. He was also known not to be the type of coach to chase big money jobs around (one of the biggest problems with college coaching today seems to be the tendency of coaches to hop from job to job after a few years chasing bigger money without having to really build a program).

    One of the biggest complaints about John Cooper was that he was an outsider who had no concept of Buckeye tradition and the importance of the Michigan game. He seemed to treat Michigan as if it were another game on the schedule and always lost. There was a lot of fear in some Buckeye circles that the school would once again look for a coach with no background at OSU. When Tressel was named as a candidate, those who were familiar with him were hoping and praying he would get the job. They wanted an Ohio guy who would work hard to beat Michigan after so many years of watching Cooper rack up big seasons only to fall flat against the Wolverines.

    Interesting. According to a tweet from a Dispatch reporter who watched the presser, he said "I don't think so, somebody else did that script," meaning Tressel and RR.

    Also, it turns out the Twitter account I quoted before is a fake. When asked about it at the presser, Hoke said "I'm on Twitter?"

    Dantonio totally did this when he arrived at UC. Except he promised to beat Miami.

    Yeah, he was thinking big time...
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Here is an article explaining it: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...ey-at-michigan
    I can't stand Braylon Edwards, but did anyone catch the player introductions during the Colts-Jets game last week? When Edwards announced his name and where he was from, he said "Braylon Edwards, Lloyd Carr's University of Michigan." I can't stand Edwards, like I said, but I liked that comment.

    As a Buckeye fan, I really hope Hoke gets Michigan back on its feet. It's simply not the same.

    Lloyd Carr? Try "Bo Schembechler's U of M" and he's onto something.

    Maybe because he played for Lloyd Carr?

    No disrespect towards Schembechler, a great coach, but let's not sneeze at what Lloyd Carr accomplished. The man accomplished something Schembechler never was able to in winning a national champsionship.

    What was wrong with San Diego? Have hardly ever gone there and I have lived in LA for 30 years.

    You could ask the same question about any city in the US. Some people like living in each place, and some don't. There's nothing wrong with SD, it's just not for me. But I do see why a lot of people love the place.

    Well, sure. But Lloyd Carr only carried the torch on the relay after Shembechler got him an insurmountable lead. I always like to look at the trailblazer rather than the settler that reaped the rewards when making such references.

    Just like tOSU football still is "Woody Hayes' tOSU"
