Former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel has joined a local TV station as a special contributor.
Tressel, who was forced out as the Buckeyes coach after 10 years at the school by a cash-for-tattoos scandal involving players, will do a weekly report for WKYC-TV. ''A Moment With Jim Tressel,'' will air each Wednesday during the station's 7 p.m. newscast. Tressel currently works as a vice president of strategic engagement at the University of Akron, where he began his coaching career as an undergraduate assistant in 1975. The school created the position for Tressel.
WKYC general manager Brooke Spectorsky said Tressel's motivational speeches and best-selling books will serve as the basis for his ''Moment'' segments.
The 59-year-old Tressel has not said if he wants to coach again.

Being optimistic isn’t always easy. It’s already happened once, and it may happen again, that I struggle to pull three good things out of a performance. This week, though, I could’ve come up with 10 if I tried. Heck, even Twitter was more positive this week (after...
The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio State football jersey sales have dropped 47% last season, right around the same time former star Terrelle Pryor left Columbus.

Another reason jersey sales fell off is that Ohio State had...
The Bug Eaters make their trip to Columbus, and the Buckeyes are looking for a little payback from last year. Looking to go 2-0 in the B1G, and cement ourselves as the top team, Brax and the newly polished Silver Bullets look primed to take it to Nebraska. I talk that, along with the fallout from last weeks game, and how Michigan’s defense was on the field last week, twice.
Urban Meyer has quickly returned No. 12 Ohio State to prominence in the Big Ten.

Urban Meyer saw his Ohio State football team follow a lackluster day of practice with a good one Wednesday. The Buckeyes are preparing to face Nebraska and could be without a defensive starter, but their quarterback is in good health despite bumps and bruises from last week.
Release: TCU and Ohio State to Play Home-and-Home in football.
Remember in 2010 when Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee compared BCS-busting college football programs like TCU and Boise State to the "Little Sisters of the Poor," insulting supporters of both schools, college football fans in general and a group of nuns who aid impoverished people around the world?
