Ohio State was all too aware what Tressel was from the start: a steady performer, a ruthless worker, and above all an orthodox cheater and horrendous gambler.**

WHEN THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL IN BOLD TYPE FONT.. Jim Tressel has resigned as head coach at Ohio St. Luke Fickell will serve as interim head coach for the 2011 season and a search for a new head coach will commence following the season. Or perhaps, it would be more appropriate to say that Tressel was "resigned" by the university, according to the Columbus Dispatch who first reported the story. Naturally, we are most concerned with how this affects the Cornhuskers, right? 1) With the program now officially in disarray status - fired coach, interim coach, impending sanctions, player suspensions, who is the new coach - how does this affect their chances in next year's matchup in Lincoln? 2) Does Bo become a target again? The name being thrown out the most this morning is Urban Meyer, but we've a year to wait. If NU lights it up in its first tour around the Big 10, does Pelini become an option to come home and fix the Bucks with a decent rebuild job already under his belt at Nebraska?

Here is what's not going to happen. Athletic director Gene Smith and President E. Gordon Gee are not going to have another press conference. Good Lord, the last one was bad enough when Gee allowed the words "I'm just hoping that the coach doesn't dismiss me" to come out of his mouth. They are not going to fire Jim Tressel. Tressel has a decision to make. He can ride out the storm and return after his five-game suspension. Then he can ride out the next storm -- which will be bigger -- and try to get to the end of the season. He is powerful enough to do both things. But it won't be pretty and there will be significant damage to the university he says he loves so dearly. Or he could take an honest look at the landscape and do the honorable thing and resign. It's a tough call but it's the right call.
