ESPN Says Jim Tressel Could Coach Colts in 2012

ESPN reported this morning that – if the losing for the Colts goes on through the end of the year – Jim Tressel could replace Jim Caldwell as head coach.

While I’m sure some people will point to Caldwell’s decision – against the intentions of many starters – to not go for 16-0 in 2009 as the beginning of the end, but the Colts are a team that has no identity or answers on defense.

If losing Melvin Bullitt and Larry Brackett to injury as Clint Session joins Jacksonville causes them to go from allowing 19.2 their Super Bowl year to allowing 27.2 PPG, then – while Caldwell should be able to make adjustments – the main issue is Bill Polian and the failure to acquire depth.
