It was learned today that Jim Tressel, head football coach at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio contacted the legal firm of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe, located in Cleveland, Ohio, in regards to pursuing a law suit naming The Associated Press in the lawsuit.
Tressel commented, "I have never been so humiliated in my life, this just should never have happened. As sports experts, AP should have known better."
He was referring to recent remarks made by Dr. Goron Gee, President of the University, criticising the BCS for including Boise State and TCU in their ratings. Gee made disparaging remarks about the difference in schedules between the two small schools, and the "tough" schedule that Ohio State plays. He stated, "We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day. So I think until a university runs through that gantlet that there's some reason to believe that they not be the best teams to (be) in the big ballgame."
"I don't care about that, Tressel said, "What I am furious about is the fact that The Associated Press sent their reporters out to talk with the top man at The Ohio State University and they didn't talk to me first. Hell, I make more money that Gee does, when you think about The Ohio State University, you think of football, and that's me, the Million and a Half a Year Coach, me and my little sweater are the symbols of this university, and don't ever forget it."
