When you think ’90s hip-hop, Jim Tressel’s name isn’t the first that comes to mind.

But the former Ohio State coach and current Akron vice president for student success got deep on Twitter Tuesday morning with a line from none other than Tupac

Tressel has used the #QuietTime before, perhaps a nod to the 10 minutes before meetings or the start of practices where he would suggest solitude.

Whether Tupac has factored into the equation before is uncertain. Tressel may not be west coast when it comes to the universities at which he’s worked but when rap is involved we see his true colors.
