Jim Tressel shares the concerns of Buckeye Nation about his team’s offense and the production of quarterback Terrelle Pryor, but the Ohio State football coach today said he and Pryor share one important characteristic as the Buckeyes (5-1, 3-0) sit atop the Big Ten standings with Iowa (6-0, 2-0).
“To me the thing that is probably the No.1 trait I see in Terrelle is, first, he wants to be on a winning team,” Tressel said. “So if you’re doing what might lead to winning, that’s No.1.”
Despite Pryor’s six interceptions — two more than he had as a freshman all of last season — and despite his sometimes off-target throws, he has for the most part taken care of the ball, Tressel said. It’s just that thus far, halfway through this season, there haven’t been those yardage explosions, either by him or the offense, that many were anticipating.
“I don’t think Terrelle would enjoy rushing for 110 (yards) and throwing for 300 and being 1-5, being 2-4,” Tressel said. “I don’t think that would interest him.”
