As you may have heard, Nick's Grandpa Gene passed away last week. Today the Dispatch ran a great article about his life and times at OSU. If any of you had the priviledge of meeting him, you know what a great guy he was. I was lucky enough to hang out with him on numerous occasions.
He had some great stories. Ill never forget the story of his 42 national championship ring. Its hard to dislike Tressel after hearing that story. I also had the honor of eating lunch with him at the "Legends Club" before a Browns game. We had probably 50-100 people come up to the table to pay their respects to Gene. It was thrilling.
I know Nick and his family will miss their grandfather/father and that he was a lot more than an All-American and successful coach at OSU, but I still think it's great he was honored by the Dispatch. Read the article here.
