Twitter: Jim Tressel tweets Tupac quote

When one thinks Jim Tressel, he or she inevitably thinks national championship, sweater vests and khakis, among other things. The former Ohio State football coach gave us another thing to associate him with Tuesday: Tupac. Yes. Tressel, now the vice president at Akron, tweeted a Tupac quote.

With the #QuietTime hashtag, one can only assume Tressel is referring to the quiet recruiting period, a time when recruits can’t have any contact with coaches, which starts Tuesday.

Deep, right?
