Tressel J. Webb’s parents haven’t done their son any favors.
… The Tressel-naming trend began with Pam Schubach of Clyde, who was 6 months pregnant on Jan. 3, 2003, when OSU upset the Miami Hurricanes in Tempe, Ariz., to win the national title.
Still euphoric three months later, father Jason Webb floated some name possibilities.
“He wanted either Eddie (after OSU running back Eddie George) or Tressel,” said Schubach, 34. “I really liked Tressel and was all for it.
“And I still respect the man.”
Her son, now 8 and heading into the third grade, has embraced their decision: For Halloween, he donned a gray sweater vest and let his mom powder his hair.
“People call him ‘Coach’ all the time,” Schubach said.
