Jim Tressel On Sports Illustrated: The Magazine Cover That Brought Down A Program

Well, we've been waiting for the Sports Illustrated story about Jim Tressel and the Ohio St. program. The story will be out very shortly, but we at least have a little sneak peak at the cover art that will go along with it. Here's a peek.




Doesn't it look like Tressel have that, "O man, some s*** is about to go down right now" look on his face? Almost like he knew that the picture would be used for just this type of occasion.


I'm sure that the article won't contain anything that the University or the NCAA doesn't already know, but it should help us fans learn a little bit more about the methods Jim Tressel use (or actively ignored) to help build his program into what it is today. We'll pass along the details of that story as soon as we have them, but in the mean times, just let that picture sink in for a minute.
