Jim Tressel Finds Work With… The Colts?

tres

Apparently the local supermarket wasn’t hiring in Columbus – instead of following in Bruce Pearls steps, maligned coach Jim Tressel was hired on by the Indianapolis Colts.  It seems to me like an odd fit, as at least with Tony Dungy, the Colts were viewed by many casual fans as the ‘good guys’ of the NFL.  They started one of the leagues most likable Quarterbacks, were often going up against Bill Belichick and the Evil Patriots (even inspiring this hyperbole from ESPN,) and generally were lauded for doing things ‘the right way.’  So why would the Colts go out of their way to hire a guy surrounded by controversy?

Especially when the job you’re hiring him for – replay-review consultant – isn’t something that he is particularly great at.  Replay-review consulting is a pretty specific line of work – not one that Tressel seems superbly great at, either.  It’s not like his replay-review mind is so valuable you take the good with the bad, it’s simply a job to keep him in the rotation of football work.  Plus, who’s to say Tressel won’t see a violation on the field and decide to keep it to himself until the head coach comes knocking around?  Wouldn’t be the first time.

But the most intriguing question has been brought up by Twitter.  Will Tressel see the same five game suspension the NFL held over for Terrelle Pryor or will he get to start work right away?  What do you think should happen to the Vest?

    The NFL said they suspended Pryor because he broke rules pertaining to the supplemental draft, not to do with NCAA. A whole lot of crap either way!

    How many morons are going to ask this question. Pryor was suspended for compromising and screwing with the supplemental draft, not for what he did in college.

    i think ‘the Vest’ should be used as the poster child for what an athletic con artist looks like. As look as you give the appearance of being an honest, upstanding citizen people will stand behind you even when you admit to cheating. He has even fooled Bobby Knight and ‘what’s his name’ Herbstret.

    I am supremely pissed that Colts would hire someone with zero morals or integrity for a position invented for him. Doesn’t pass my smell test

    This tells me that Tressel will be a coach in the NFL within 2 years. Maybe even with the Colts. Not necessarily a HC position, I just said a coach.

    That is a cool shirt; it’d be a welcome addition to my wardrobe. Glad Captain Sweater Vesticle is gone from College Football. Glad to see the new Head Coach in a suit and tie. Looked like a young Pharmaceutical Sales Rep. Gimme a freakin’ break.

    We should hire Tressel as head coach and Leach as offensive coordinator

    You people really think you personally know enough about Jim Tressel to judge him? That’s pathetic. I can guarantee you he has done more for the goodwill of humanity than ANY of you will accomplish in your lives (probably even collectively). Maybe that’s why he’s able to get this job… because people who ACTUALLY know him, respect him immensely.

    Probably the same amount of idiots who believe the NFL’s reasoning behind their excuse. Obviously anyone who knows anything about the NFL rules, knows that Pryor did nothing to make himself ineligible for the draft. Because if he did, he would have been declared ineligible for the supplemental draft!

    #14. Right on! Tressel is a class act and got caught up in protecting his players. Pryor was trouble from the day he set foot on the OSU campus. I wish he would have gone to Michigan.

    @16 Tressel was in trouble long before Pryor stepped on campus. And long before he was coaching the Buckeyes. He committed the exact same crime – fraud and cheating – at his prior coaching gig. I suppose that’s on the players as well? It couldn’t possibly stick to Sweatervest Jim!

    A bunch of kids trade their own property for tatoo’s and their Coach tells them to cut that crap out. He keeps it to himself and then plays dumb when the fit hits the shan. So now everybody wants to make out like Tressel is the biggest cheater in college football. COME ON MAN!!!

    #17 Tressel is an upstanding guy…does more goodwill here in Columbus in one month than you will do in your lifetime. So with your little analogy, is Cal a cheater? “Fraud and cheating at his prior coaching gig(s)” as you say? Or was that “on the players as well?” Get a grip and look at the big picture.
