Quote Question

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by Helpinghand, Sep 19, 2004.

    A few weeks ago when Tressel's wife said he would be fired before he ever quit, someone did an analysis of the fate of all of the OSU coached over the last 100 years. I don't know if it was here or another board. If anyone has it, could you please post it again?

    Don't get your hopes up.

    No, my hopes aren't up, nothing like that at all.

    I was just talking to his wife about her quote at the Cinn game and I told her I would bring her the list. She reminded me of it at NC State.

    Every OSU football coach since 1954 has been fired.

    I got the answer from Steve H.

    Tressel, on top of the world
    Cooper, fired
    Bruce, fired
    Hayes, fired
    Fesler, pretty much fired (and went to Minnesota 6 weeks later)
    Bixler, did it one year, couldn't stand the heat, left for Colgate
    Widdoes, switched places with assistant Bixler because the heat was too much
    Brown, left during WWII to coach Great Lakes Navy team
    Schmidt, resigned after 3rd straight loss to UM
    Willaman, resigned
    Wilce, stepped down on his own terms
    Vaughn, left to study law at Yale (hey, it was 1911)

    i think the only way tress can get fired is if he punches charlie whitehurst in the throat. :lol:

    Not encouraging for Tress.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    Law of averages, it is quite encouraging for Tress. Besides, if he coached 30 wahtever years he will be 80 something. I think at that point it is time to go anyway.

    Hell of a coach he is, Eddie Robinson he aint!

    I think odds are Tressel will be fired or forced out...I mean look...that is almost going to happen to Jopa. I don't think Tressel will ever be offered a better job than Ohio State...and I don't think he would just want to quit any time soon. I just think he will be Ohio State's coach for a long long time. But eventually there will be a time when he will be forced out.

    It was Charley Baughman who got punched in the throat. I watched the ESPN Classic replay of loss to OU in like 1977(?). Woody tried to punch almost everybody whille leaving the field.

    Guys these are the good old days. Thank God.
  12. This is true for most coaches in professional sports. In many cases you can coach into your 70s if you want to and it is very rare for someone to be good enough for long enough to keep your job forever. The Bowdens and Paternos are few and far between. And both, until recently were national championship contenders until late in their careers (Bowden might still be).

    Provided his health remains good, he'll be here for at least another 20-25 years. The only way he leaves is if his teams go into a sustained (3 or more years) nosedive, he gets ill, or he dies. I doubt the first of the three will ever happen, so...

    Tress seems pretty grounded. He may want to just ride off into the sunset someday. I doubt he wants to hang around and hear whispers like JoePa. If he coaches another 15 years and wins another 2 or 3 (or hopefully more) NCs, he may just call it a career when we least expect it.
