Tressel says he was rooting for Wolverines to avoid huge upset
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel says
he was rooting for the rival Michigan Wolverines to avoid an upset
Michigan lost to Appalachian State on a blocked field goal in
the final seconds.
Tressel says he's always rooting for conference teams when
they're not squaring off against the Buckeyes.
Still, Michigan's loss will undoubtedly make it much easier for
Tressel and his staff to emphasize that the threat of a mammoth
upset is always present. It should be a good lesson for the
12th-ranked Buckeyes, who are heavy favorites over Akron in their
game this week.
