Tressel Quits

If you can't stand the heat, take off the vest.
Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel has resigned, university sources told The Dispatch today.

Less than three months after President E. Gordon Gee and Athletic Director Gene Smith said they fully supported their embattled coach, mounting pressure, a pending NCAA disciplinary hearing and new revelations about the culture of the program forced the university to act on their once-revered coach, sources said.
At least he finally got that win over an SEC team before he bowed out gracefully got canned.

I don't acknowledge that win. He's still 0-forever in my book.

I'd say that there's a good chance that win gets vacated now that it is clear Ohio State and Tressel knew about the illegal benefits all along and lied about it.
