A couple things I'd like to point out.

1). When Tressel came to OSU the talent was there but not like it was when Urban arrived. OSU was also owned by Michigan at that time and he went to Ann Arbor and beat the Wolverines.

2). Urban picked OSU at the perfect time. Still lots of talent/top national facilities. The guy is a great coach, and he has certainly earned the right to pick and choose but he did not take over a program that was that far off it's rocker.

3). Tressel owned UM and he got OSU to the title game three times. The first they beat a team with more talent. The second they lost to a team that peaked at the right time AFTER beating UM in the classic #1 vs. #2 game. Tough to go UP after a game like that and of course there was the Heisman curse. Had that OSU team played Florida earlier it would have been a game that the Buckeyes could have won. That was a great team with loads of talent but much like 2014 it was all about timing. In the third National Title game against LSU the Buckeyes were probably not the team that should have been playing the Tigers but as a coach what do you do? Turn it down? Tell the media you do not believe you should be there?

I am not a Buckeye fan and always thought Tressel was a tad too conservative at times (like most). But there is no denying how good of a coach he is/was.

What got Tressel in the end? His greatest strength became his weakness and that was loyalty. He cared about the kids he recruited and coached and in protecting them when he should have hammered them it cost him his job.
