    No idea how much validity this has but I would love to see Jim Tressel back in the coaching ranks. He wouldn't even need new sweater vests.

    I thought Tressel still had a few years left on the show-cause penalty?

    I thought he could not coach yet (Tressel). I heard Bowling Greens coach.

    Isn't Tressel in Indanapolis, not Ohio?

    Remember that Jim Tressel has a 5-year show-cause penalty from the NCAA. Doubt that they'll get past that in order to hire him.

    Rhoads was in Northwest Ohio for what was said to be recruiting. Now I am beginning to worry............

    Well no one thought Alvarez would pay himself 120k to coach the Rose Bowl but that happened too.


    However, I do agree with you although I would love to see him at Wisconsin.

    Re: Alvarez in Northwest Ohio: Tressel or Fickell to be hired as UW coach?

    Ohio State Buckeyes football penalties include bowl ban - ESPN

    "Tressel, who guided Ohio State to its first national championship in 34 years after the 2002 season, was pressured to resign after 10 years with the Buckeyes. The NCAA hit him with a five-year "show-cause" order which all but prevents him from being a college coach during that time."

    "Under a show-cause order, any school that hired Tressel would have to present its case for why it needed to employ him, and would risk severe penalties if he were to commit any further infractions after that."


    Based on this show-cause order I can't see Tressel being in play for any coaching job.

    Was my first guess too, but Ohio University is not in Northwest Ohio. Toledo already left for their bowl game, so head coach Matt Campbell is most likely not the candidate. That most likely leaves Bowling Green head coach Dave Clawsen.
