Jim Tressel Apologizes To Ohio State Fans Without Actually Apologizing

Even though Jim Tressel has been proven to not be the smartest man in the world, it hasn’t stopped him from trying to be. So when the university, presumably, propped Tressel up on a podium in front of Ohio State supporters to “apologize”, Tressel decided to go another route. Instead of the “I’m sorry that I wasn’t forthcoming with all of this” that the university, and everyone in attendance, thought they were going to get, Tressel decided to apologize but, not really apologize at all.

And of course, they went for.

Standing before a room jammed with some of his most loyal admirers, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel apologized several times during his first public speaking engagement since being suspended and fined for violating NCAA rules.

Speaking to a crowd of 400 – many of them Ohio State fans clad in scarlet and gray – at a luncheon sponsored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Tressel charmed a pro-Buckeyes audience during a 40-minute speech focused on handling adversity.

See.

Tressel began by saying he couldn’t say much about the recent troubles at Ohio State “because of the nature of the investigation.”

“But I can tell you this,” he said. “I consider all of you a part of the Buckeye Nation. I sincerely apologize for what we’ve been through. I apologize for the fact I wasn’t able to find the ones to partner with to handle our difficult and complex situation.

“I also apologize because I’m going to have some sanctions. But the mission doesn’t change. That’s the pledge I have to you. The mission I’ve always had is we make sure we help young people change their lives.”

And just that like that, Jim Tressel is back to being the smartest man in the room.
