So for those that missed it, Gene Smith came on to the CBS post-game grinning ear to ear following his team's victory this afternoon over Michigan, but it didn't last long. For those that are not aware, Smith is not only the AD of Ohio State, but the chair of the selection committee for the tournament (stunner eh?). He showed up to be interviewed on the process... NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND!
CBS's Seth Davis and crew started the questioning off about none other than JIM TRESSEL! Stock footage and all. Smith not only was caught totally off-guard, but his visual response to the questioning of the penalty and why they didn't AT LEAST suspend him for two conference games was worth every penny. The smile and blood ran away from his face and all he could manage was "Uhhhhhhhhhhh um, we have uh, an ongoing investigation....." Two solid questions about Tressel, on basketball coverage no less, and the AD of the school has no response... it's only the beginning Buckeye fans.
