    It's still amazing how we screwed him. Hopefully he comes up with some big plays.

    I believe what we did to Morgan is the low point in the JT administration.

    We screwed up on this one, and I hope it doesn't come back to bite us in the rear... I would think Florida HS choaches would be hesitent to "sell" tOSU to their players...

    WestEnd look ma no shoelaces, and I'm down with the KIIING

    Don't think that this is going to just go away, either. We're going to lose alot of credibility in recruiting FLA players over this, and rightfully so.

    The Morgan situation really opened my eyes to the fact that Tressel isn't neccessarily the man that the media makes him out to be. I have no doubt that he tries to be a honorable person in everything he does, but I don't really look at him like a guy who makes every single one of his decisions based on what is good and right and honorable at all costs.

    Tressel is a good person at heart and a great coach, but I'm not so sure that the media ever really served him that well by building him up to be something more than that.

    These parts break my heart. Some kids use their heads in a recruiting decision...this kid used his heart. He was a TRUE Buckeye. Classless, what happened to him. DaJaun Morgan & Dennis Kennedy are two players that I will cheer for no matter where they go or who they play against...even if it's us. Don't get me wrong, I hope we destroy NC State...but I hope Morgan makes us wish we'd kept him.

    This all comes together to make me wonder if there is more behind Conleys retirement than we might think...maybe his conscience got to him?

    I agree with your post westend, but to me there is more to the story than meets the general publics eye. Some info is being withheld for some unknown reason. I just can't believe Tressel would do something as low as what the media has told us. Why wouldn't he not apologize is my main question. To send Bill Conley on his own to do the dirty work is certainly uncharacteristic of Jim Tressel. If all this is true then its certainly going to come back to haunt us. Especially if Morgan has a fabulous day against Ohio State. Sure wish Jim could clear all this up an tell the truth.

    Yeah Oiler i thought about that too. Conley has to come out with what really happened. Maybe his retirement really centered around this incident.

    Sad story, now that we get to hear DaJuan's side. Sounds like there's a lot of WolfPack players that feel slighted by us - this is gonna be an especially emotional game. Let's hope the Buckeyes are really up for it - they'll need to be.

    Go Bucks!

    I feel really, really bad for this kid. I hope he has a great career at NC State.
