COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Some Ohio high school coaches will be wearing a white shirt, tie and even a sweater vest tonight when they open the season, a tribute to deposed Ohio State coach Jim Tressel.
The Ohio High School Football Coaches Association suggested to its members in July that they might honor Tressel by mimicking his typical game attire.

A few have said they intend to follow that advice, while others have said they see no reason to honor a coach who was pushed out of his job for breaking NCAA rules and covering up his knowledge that several of his players had accepting improper benefits.
Tressel resigned under pressure on May 30 in the middle of a lengthy NCAA investigation of his Buckeyes program.
