Everyone always dogged Cooper for recruiting " thugs".....and couldn't beat Michigan. Tressel was getting " good" players and beat michigan but couldn't win on the big stage. I have never been a tressel fan partly because his play calling was terribly predictable and wayyyyyy to conservative. I was able to call a play out with 75% success, now if a dumb high school asst. coach is able to do that what are collegiate coaches capable of? Also what bothered me was the super clean image he put off....that is a myth in today's college sports. You almost have this feeling when the curtains close the circus begins. I have no problem with the behind the scenes tactics, if you want to be a competitor for a national championship do what ya gotta do. If you think this won'rtcontinue at OSU your f&*$ing high!!! Its the nature of the beast and tressel couldn't control it.
