To Buckeyes beat writer Tim May, who asked him to recount his thoughts on the game's final play: "I was thinking, I wonder what Tim's first question will be?"
To the scribe who tried to lend bathos to the proceedings by asking the coach what his father, the late Lee Tressel, who coached for 23 years at Baldwin Wallace College in Ohio, would say to him if only he could: "Better start scoring a little more. For starters."
Tressel said it with the smile of a man not overly worried. Clarett is back up and running, and Buckeyes fans have a new question: How do you get to Tempe?
