Jim Tressel Seen on TV in Colts Debut
If you are a glutton for punishment and watched the entire 62-7 blowout on “Sunday Night Football,” you got a special treat in the fourth quarter.
That’s when an NBC camera panned to the press box to catch former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel fresh off his NFL suspension and serving in his new role as a replay consultant for the Indianapolis Colts. Tressel was seen sans sweater vest and instead sporting a Colts golf shirt.
It was quite the beginning. Working with replay last night was brutal for any Colts coach as the Saints tied the NFL record for biggest margin of victory since the NFL-AFL merger. While many will probably say Tressel looks miserable, this is pretty much the face he showed win or lose on the sidelines in Columbus.
The way things are going for the 0-7 Colts this season, we wouldn’t be surprised if fans started calling for Tressel to replace Jim Caldwell for 2012.
