Wells Comes to the Defense of Former College Coach Jim Tressel

The Cardinals’ running game should perk up this season if Beanie Wells revisits the hard-charging form he flashed during his rookie season two years ago. The passion Wells showed Monday in defending his former college coach wouldn’t hurt, either. Wells, one of 11 NFC West players from Ohio State, took Jim Tressel’s scandal-induced resignation hard, the third-year Cardinals runner called Tressel a “great man” who imparted life lessons upon his players.

The way Wells sees things, if Tressel lied about his players’ roles in the scandal, he did so only out of honor. Wells punctuated his tweets with exclamation points, making good on his promise to “go off” while criticism against Tressel piled up. “It’s not his fault at all that he had a few go stray out of hundreds!!!” Wells wrote. “U check the success rate of the people that have been around him!!!!”
