Jim Tressel Sugar Bowl Ohio State Football

Growing Up in the Age of Jim Tressel

Eighth grade me left the party in the basement and walked up the stairs to watch the final minutes of the 2011 Sugar Bowl alone. The nerves and pressure of an Ohio State loss weighed too much on me, so I watched the game in the living room so I could pace, cuss freely, and get overly emotional where no one could see or judge me.
