The Lyrics

As a proud fan of the Michigan Wolverines, I received the happiest news over the holiday weekend when head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes football team announced that he was resigning amid an investigation from the NCAA. This is my own little sendoff to said coach in a way of saying "Get the hell outta here!!" Original Song:
Those "poor" Buckeyes
Egg on his face
His players
They sent him to his coaching grave
Got free tattoos
And cars too
But Jim Tressel told
That there was not a thing he knew

Jim Tressel
In trouble now
Now he’s all gone
From Columbus town
In trouble
Jim Tressel’s wrong
In trouble ya'll
No compliance, now he’s gone

Thought he was fine
Got proven wrong
Emails proved he
That he knew all along
President Gee
Covered hide
But now Tressel’s out
Cause we all found out he lied

Jim Tressel
In trouble now
He resigned ya'll
He left his Columbus town
Oh Tressel
You should have known
In trouble now
Tried to cover up his own

He said he knew nothing
He was bluffing
He said he didn’t know
(now he knows it's time to go cause he’s in trouble)

They sold gold pants;
Rings to this place
Get free stuff
If they just autographed their names
Crossed his fingers
Cause he knew
He lied when he told
The press “There’s nothing I could do”

Thought he was fine
Got proven wrong
The N-C-A-A
Found he knew all along
His star QB
Has new rides
Each time he goes out
So then Tressel just resigned

Jim Tressel
In trouble now
Not coaching now
He left Buckeye town
In trouble
Jim Tressel’s now
In trouble ya'll
No ones fault except his own

So all those wins from
Last years season
They just may have to go
(go-oh-oh..oh Jim)

In trouble now
He’s no longer
The head coach in Buckeye town
Jim Tressel
Big trouble now
Your players now
Could have trouble of their own

In trouble now
But now he’s gone
Far gone from his Buckeye town
Ann Arbor
Go crazy now
Jim Tressel’s gone
This year, we could win the crown
No ones fault except his own
Cause he’s gone from Buckeye town
For those of you not from the Midwest area (or not fans of college football), here is a little background info...

Hey Abbott! - So, have you ever been in "The Big House"? lol I bleed Blue and Gold from a block M (although for me it's Morehead State University). Although annoyed by "TOSU", I have no particular grudge. That said, I wickedly lend my record of the Michigan Fight Song to Buckeye bashers every fall during the week of your magnificent shindig. ;D

I have indeed been in the Big House! I go to BGSU and we played the Wolverines in Ann Arbor last season. I am a member of the BG marching band, so I got to live my dream of marching on the field IN said Big House and it was the greatest day of my life. Hail to the Victors indeed!

Kinda that kind of parody topic where one thinks "well I guess. I had to be there" to really appreciate it. Well done, but I would have tried for more chorus variations with words like 'muzzle', 'hustle' or 'puzzle' which very well could have fit in the storyline.

Not really sure how to vote on this one seeing that I have no idea what it's about.
Jeff Reuben - August 12, 2011 - Report this comment
Things must have been really bad since they actually had to get rid of Tressel. What a mess! Abbott, very cool that you've seen games at the Big House. As a sports fan, I got this one.

(ABC) It's one of those songs that you either love or you don't, unfortunately I didn't love it. The OS didn't really lend you much to work with in your writing. I'm afraid I didn't find it that funny, but I definitely get where you're coming from.

(ABC) I like Ohio State, but the situation was pretty funny.

(ABC) Well this was definitely not the parody for me. Nothing wrong with the OS, though it didn't leave you a lot to work with. The pacing here was fantastic, no problems there. It's just that as a guy who knows nothing about sports apart from how to play most of them and the odd star, a parody about a specific guy who screwed up...something isn't gonna grasp me. Not your fault at all, I'm just not the audience for this one.

(ABC) Ditto. I'm a band geek...while this is going on, I'm playing trombone on the side of the field, so it's lost on me as well. Good OS choice and pacing though.

I like OS, but uh. . .I don't know anything about NCAA. Not being familiar with the situation or following Ohio State. . .sorry buddy, it was well written
