When I was deployed to Iraq, on a lark I emailed Jim Tressel’s osu.edu email. Surprisingly, I got a response. I figured it was an admin but emailed back and forth during deployment when I was able to get to a computer. When I got back I got an email asking if I got home safe and for my address. A week later I got this signed card from Coach Tressel. A few months later, I’m out of the Marines and back at OSU as a student and working in the athletic department.
I was working a “coaches conference” where every high school coach came to Columbus to hear Coach Tressel speak. Afterwards, there was a long line of coaches waiting to talk to him. My boss said to go up and introduce myself. I went up and said, “Sorry to bother you coach but I wanted to thank you for writing to me when I was in Iraq and sending me that card”. Coach Tressel turned to the coaches waiting and said, “Gents you’re gonna have to wait a few minutes”
