Tressel = Class

It was supposed to be a private thing, no media coverage. Jim Tressel wanted it that way. Archie Griffin suggested it, and Tressel made it happen. The mother of the late Drushaun Humphrey was presented with an Ohio State national championship ring the other day, delivered personally by Coach Tressel at Toledo Rogers High School. Humphrey, a talented football recruit who was recruited by Tressel's predecesor John Cooper, and never got to play at OSU, died of an apparent heart attack two years ago at age 18. The Toledo Blade had a reporter on the story, but Tressel declined to comment. This guy just always seems to do and say the right things. In this case he did the right thing and said nothing, other than to give the credit to someone else. Too good to be true? I think not.
