No, the Resignation of Jim Tressel Surprised No One Here at Coaches Hot Seat….but Announce Tressel’s Resignation on MEMORIAL DAY? – That Is Outrageous…but Quintessential Candy Ass E. Gordon Gee – Everyone With An IQ Over Room Temperature Knew That Jim Tressel Would Resign or Be Fired In Early March…Except For Jim Tressel and A Few People at Ohio State – The Very Real Danger of Having So Many Candy Asses and Pompous Arrogant Asses Like E. Gordon Gee Leading Our Institutions of Higher Education in America Today Is Something ALL Americans Must Understand….Because People In Our Opinion That Haven’t Spent A Day of Their Lives Working In the REAL WORLD and Support Things Like the Bogus BCS That Violate the Principles of OUR Republic Poses A Clear and Present Danger To the Future of OUR Nation – Good Luck To You Jim Tressel
In the end it was no surprise to anyone here at Coaches Hot Seat that Jim Tressel resigned from Ohio State (or was that asked, forced, told to resign?), but leave it to a Sorry Candy Ass like Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee to announce Tressel’s resignation on…
From the Columbus Dispatch story this morning that broke the news that Jim Tressel was resigning
“In an email announcing the resignation to students, Gee said that “recruitment for a new head coach – which is expected to include external and internal candidates – will not commence until the conclusion of the 2011-2012 season.”
Tressel flew back from Florida last night for meetings with OSU officials. Assistant coaches and players were informed this morning.
Earlier today, The Dispatch obtained a memo that Gee sent to OSU trustees early in the morning:
“I write to let you know that later this morning we will be announcing the resignation of Jim Tressel as head coach of the University’s football program. As you all know, I appointed a special committee to analyze and provide advice to me regarding issues attendant to our football program. In consultation with the senior leadership of the University and the senior leadership of the Board, I have been actively reviewing the matter and have accepted Coach Tressel’s resignation.
“My public statement will include our common understanding that throughout all we do, we are One University with one set of standards and one overarching mission. The University’s enduring public purposes and its tradition of excellence continue to guide our actions,” Gee wrote.”
E. Gordon Gee announces the resignation of Jim Tressel on MEMORIAL DAY via emails to the OSU Trustees, faculty and students?
Classless and quintessential Candy Ass E. Gordon Gee.
Oh, you say that Sports Illustrated is about to put out a story on Ohio State football and thus the school had to force Tressel out and get “ahead of the story?”
If that was the reason that Jim Tressel’s resignation was announced on MEMORIAL DAY then we now think even less of these Bastards at Ohio State than we did a nanosecond ago.
Everyone with a working brain, seemingly everyone but Jim Tressel and few other people at Ohio State, knew that Jim Tressel was not going to coach another game as the OSU head football coach after the March 7 Yahoo! Sports story by Charles Robinson and Dan Wetzel…
…..which detailed the FACTS that Jim Tressel knew of his players selling merchandise and thus breaking NCAA rules in April 2010 which was a full 5 months before the 2010 football season began and long before that Bogus and Embarrassing December 23 “Buck Stops Here” press conference by Tressel and OSU AD Gene Smith.
Jim Tressel LIED to his own bosses and to the NCAA and that should be a firing offense EVERYTIME for coaches in college that are tasked with leading young American men and women and it was pitiful, sad and downright embarrassing that anyone at Ohio State defended Jim Tressel since early March of this year when the TRUTH about Jim Tressel’s actions was known to everyone:
Jim Tressel LIED and when his LIES became public knowledge in early March (although Ohio State knew about it in January) Jim Tressel should have been fired on the spot.
What really galls us here at Coaches Hot Seat is that a Candy Ass and Pompous Arrogant Ass like E. Gordon Gee would have such little respect for the millions of Americans that have sacrificed their lives in service to OUR country so that all of us and our families can enjoy the benefits of living in the United States of America….that he would so stupidly announce Jim Tressel’s resignation on the morning of…
Well, when we think about it announcing Jim Tressel’s resignation on MEMORIAL DAY it is just another day at the office for the Candy Ass E. Gordon Gee and why would Gee give two rips about the millions of Americans that have died so his precious ass could sit in a big office running a major state university that is funded by Hundreds of Millions of Dollars of state and Federal tax money?
Yes, why would E. Gordon Gee care that he made this announcement on Jim Tressel on MEMORIAL DAY instead of waiting until Tuesday morning May 31 st?
In our opinion E. Gordon Gee could care less about the Millions of Americans that have fought and died for OUR country and that he never gave a nanosecond of thought or cared that he was making this announcement about Tressel on MEMORIAL DAY and it is also our opinion that people like E. Gordon Gee and sadly many other Candy Ass presidents and chancellors of universities and colleges in our country could also care less.
America has a magnificent system of higher education in OUR country that is made up of public and private institutions of higher learning that turn-out tens of thousands of educated and often highly motivated young Americans into OUR country every year, but far too often the presidents/chancellors and top leadership of OUR colleges and universities are far removed from the lives of most Americans and are out-of-touch with the FACTS of what made their rise in the academic world possible over the past several decades.
What made America’s colleges and universities possible were the Millions of Americans that have fought and died over the past century that has created a world where the United States of America has emerged as the world’s lone superpower and that has a populace that goes out and works its’ collective asses off everyday that then creates lots of income and wealth and thus Hundreds of Billions of Dollars of tax revenue for higher education in America.
Here’s the real problem: There are far too many Candy Asses and Pompous Arrogant Asses like E. Gordon Gee running our colleges and universities in America today and like Gee the vast majority of them, something like over 99 percent, never served in the US military, and well over 80 percent of them never worked a day of their lives in the REAL WORLD off of the college or university campus.
The above reality as it now exists in America with so many college and university presidents, top leadership and faculty members that have spent practically NO time in US Military or working in the REAL WORLD is a great danger to the American Republic and it creates troubling situations where there are far too many of these Candy Asses running our colleges and universities that believe in incredibly stupid things like the Absurd BCS which violates every Principle that the American Republic was founded upon and purports to stand for today.
Yes, it makes perfect sense that a Candy Ass like E. Gordon Gee would not understand the idea that in America sports championships are won and lost on the Field of Play not through Bogus and Meaningless bowl exhibition games that are dominated by Bastards like the Sugar Bowl “leader” that stuck his nose into this Ohio State “Buckeye Five” mess last December and pressured Ohio State, the Big Ten and the NCAA to allow the “Buckeye Five” to play in “their” bowl game.
Yes, the BCS makes “perfect” sense to the E. Gordon Gees of the world…but then the E. Gordon Gees of the world put-out major announcements like the resignation of Jim Tressel on MEMORIAL DAY morning.
Yes, in our opinion E. Gordon Gee is a Candy Ass, he is a Pompous Arrogant Ass and he is a Sorry Excuse for an American and if one went back in history and filled up America with men like E. Gordon Gee in December 1941 it is our opinion that there would be no America for all of us to live in today because the Germans and Japanese would have won World War II and killed every Jew and other person they did not like on Planet Earth in the process. That REALITY is a very scary thought and if anyone in America doesn’t understand the danger that is posed by Candy Asses that are in positions of power across education in America today then that is someone that doesn’t understand what made America great. That would be Guts, Courage, Will, Desire and an unflinching belief in the Principles that our great country was founded up…that sadly are often laughed at and tossed into the garbage on college and university campuses in America today.
Yes, in our opinion the likes of E. Gordon Gee pose a Clear and Present Danger to the future of the American Republic and today’s announcement of Jim Tressel’s resignation on…
…only confirms what we have thought of Gee and others like him for over a decade now.
E. Gordon Gee should be ashamed, but the man has no shame and is in our opinion an embarrassment to Ohio State, the Big Ten Conference, to intercollegiate athletics and to the United States of America.
As for Jim Tressel’s resignation there was no joy, but only sadness when we read that Tressel had resigned from Ohio State this morning.
Jim Tressel is THE reason why Jim Tressel is no longer the head football coach at Ohio State, because in our opinion he turned a “two-bit” merchandise selling scheme by Ohio State football players that would have caused a 2 to 5 game suspension to start the 2010 football season into a full-blown cover-up to keep OSU football players eligible and on the playing field so that OSU could win more football games.
We hate to say it, but that is SORRY Jim Tressel and when the FACTS about this entire debacle became public in early March you should have resigned for the good of the university and intercollegiate athletics then, but another person on a college campus that is out-of-touch with REALITY does not really surprise us…..again, and again, and again…
…but Jim Tressel’s behavior over the past year plus and especially during the last 6 months has been downright embarrassing and has forced us to look at the man and his career in a much different and negative light.
If anything this Tressel debacle should be a great lesson for college coaches everywhere and the lesson is that although WINNING football games and WINNING in life is an important thing, WINNING in the right way is even more important to YOU and to the young men and women that college coaches are tasked to lead.
We wish Jim Tressel good luck into the future and we certainly hope that Jim decides that he has the ability and skills to have a very positive impact upon the life and lives of the people of Ohio and across the country and that he again commit himself to making this world a better place.
Up until December of 2010 we always thought a lot of and respected Jim Tressel and certainly one or several stupid mistakes should not overshadow the young people he has positively influenced in his life and all the football games he has won and no doubt after the wounds of this debacle have healed and Jim Tressel has redeemed himself and his life we and many others will do what Americans have always done….forgive Jim and applaud him for moving on with his life.
Good Luck to you Jim Tressel.
As for the E. Gordon Gees of the world a Pompous Arrogant Ass will always be a Pompous Arrogant Ass because that is the only way they know how to act and our opinion that the E. Gordon Gees pose a direct threat to the future of the American Republic will not change as does Bogus things like the BCS that undermine the Principles that OUR country was founded up and exists today which is something that E. Gordon Gee and his Candy Ass academic friends could never understand because they have often never spent a day of their lives in the REAL WORLD that 99 percent plus Americans have with in EVERY DAY of their lives.
