Deadspin touches base with an Ohio State fan who had the unfortunate foresight to name his kid Tressel Andrew Tomcho. Money exchange:
Did you discuss, at the time, what would happen if Jim Tressel were to be fired or otherwise disgraced? Do you have some sort of contingency plan in place?
No contingency plan. My wife is only a fan of tOSU because of me, and has no allegiance to them. The name was something she actually liked. Plus we didn’t think we’d ever have to worry about anything like this.
Are you regretting the name, or considering changing it?
No name change. We’ll just shorten it for a while to T or Tre.
Something to remember as we watch the ongoing orgy of statue erection on Southern campuses.
