Former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel will be honored at Ohio State's game this afternoon against Northern Illinois, as a member of Ohio State's Athletic Hall of Fame. That honor is a no-brainer, no matter how the Tressel era ended at Ohio State. The man won a national title, after all, played for two more, and dominated the Big Ten completely, including That Team Up North.

But his Hall of Fame induction isn't the only honor he'll be getting. Judging from the scenes around Ohio Stadium, Ohio State's students have a few other tricks up their sleeve to make sure everybody knows exactly how they feel about The Senator.

For example, what better way to honor Tressel than by donning his signature sweater vest? Block O looks like they'll be at this game in style:

Also, it sure seems like Jim Tressel's initials will be recognized in Block O's section as well J.T. Barrett isn't starting today, after all, but that other famous J.T's in the house:

I don't think JT is starting, but his initials are in the stands for some reason. #OSUvsNI #GoBucks

Congrats to Jim Tressel. Here's hoping his presence will help Ohio State punt a little better today. It's what he would have wanted, after all.
