Michigan fans mock Tressel on billboard

Let's be honest, it's been a while since Michigan has been able to get the best of Ohio State on the football field. Which means that Michigan fans haven't had much to hang over the heads of their hated rivals to the south. Combine all that with the overall failures of Michigan football in recent years, and Rich Rodriguez's failed tenure and run-ins with the NCAA, and life hasn't been great.

Which is why the trouble that Ohio State and Jim Tressel are currently in with the NCAA is the greatest thing that has happened to Wolverines fans in a long time. So you can't be surprised if they want to have some fun with it, even if that fun costs money. Which is something billboards tend to do.

Yes, that billboard can be seen on I-94 in Michigan, taunting Tressel not only for his lies of omission, but his penchant for wearing sweatervests as well. You know the old saying, if you can't beat them, may as well kick them while they're down.

Do note the clever product placement here. Apparently CBS owns quite a few billboards up in Michigan, eh?

AHHH, Guess we will just sit here quietly while, once again, the egomeisters go at it. Keep it up and we will just run our way to another Big 10 championship like last year.  I do find it amazing that the NCAA is holding off on any decision. I was upset at first because I feel they should act so that the team/coach that committed the violations will feel the punishment, not future teams. I am sure last years season will have to be vacated by OU, but the pain will be much deeper. Think about it, the NCAA is actually going to hurt the Buckeyes worse by not ruling. As a recruit, would you go to play there with the unknown on the horizon? Maize and Blue,, don't laugh too loudly, the whole Rodriquez situation may not be over. I love the rivalry! GO BIG RED!!!

As the spouse of a Michigan alum, I love this. The only think better was if they could've made it F**K**G Liar! The NCAA either needs to let players sell their goods or get rid of sanctimonious a**holes like Tressel.

Mr. Fuckeye, I've got a question... what's the overall record in the rivalry? Yeah, you and your team aren't even above .500. Stop bein' a punk. Oh, and yeah, Michigan is stil lteh most winningest team in NCAA Div 1 football... and our record against the SEC is what, 22-3? While you guys are what, 1-11 against the SEC? Yeah, way to be a fool.

As a Buckeye fan and Michigan hater, I have to give them props.  Nice one, very orginal (no sarcasm). 

Secondly, when was the last time u beat OSU?  Stick to designing billboards and stay off the football field.  Its 11:47 am EST, and Michigan still sucks.

Last time I checked both schools are at fault for something. Actual cheating, aka too much practice time and denying it leads to a slap on the wrist and selling memorabilia for tattoos causes 5 game suspension and lying about it is at least 5 games and possibly getting fired, but let 'em play in the bowl game because of the MONEY? I guess that is the NCAA's consistency platform. They burn whom they want to and let things slide for others. Give they kids a stipend and most of these incidences will go away or at least review some of the arcaic regulations.

Michigan rules the billboards. Ohio State rules the scoreboards.
