Buckeyes coach reveals little about himself

Jim Tressel has been the coach at Ohio State for a decade of

success – yet few know much about him when he’s not wearing that

vest and a tightly knotted tie on the sideline.

On Saturday against Indiana, his second-ranked team can give him

his 100th win with the Buckeyes. He says only that he’s more

concerned about his Buckeyes just getting to 6-0 this season.

He says he’s never watched the greatest game of his career, Ohio

State’s double-overtime victory over Miami at the 2003 Fiesta Bowl

that gave the school its first national championship in 34

years.

Asked how long he’ll coach at Ohio State, he avoids the

question.

A master recruiter, a friend to his players, a good guy to work

for – still Tressel remains an enigma to many.
