So, no, I wasn't trying to make a point."
"Anytime there's change, change is exciting in its own way -- the wonder of what this is going to look like," Tressel said. "It's not that you have to add a whole bunch more to the Ohio State-Michigan game, but it adds a little bit of mystery."

"I've talked to Rich and said I never said 'Rich Rodriguez,' " Tiller said. "We've known each other for a long time and had good discussions this spring, so to me it's a moot point."
