Coach Jim Tressel: Looking at the Decade of the Vest

It seems like yesterday—or, for the rest of the world, nine years—since ESPN broke the news that John Cooper would be let go as the Ohio State Buckeyes coach. No one was really shocked—an embarrassing 2-10-1 record with Michigan was hardly tolerable by Buckeye fans everywhere, not to mention the losing record in Bowl games among other issues.

Enter Jim Tressel. His first promise? Beating Michigan. Buckeye fans weren't going to hold their breath, but Tressel didn't disappoint—he boasts an 8-1 record over the rival to the north, including the "Game of the Century" in 2006, when No. 1 Ohio State defeated No. 2 Michigan in their annual meeting.

Besides "The Game," Tressel has had what some might call a mediocre Bowl record with the Buckeyes, showing only a 5-4 record in post-season play (4-3 in BCS games).

I'm going to briefly take a look at every season under The Vest thus far. Afterwords, I'll make a prediction for the year to come.
