OSU Coach Jim Tressel had his fans camping out and lining up at his July 19 book signing at the Pickerington Barnes & Noble. There was a steady flow of people winding through the store throughout his three-hour visit. The book store estimates it sold 1,700 books from July 15 through the signing July 19, and about 700 people were in attendance July 19 to get autographs from Tressel and Dr. John Woods. Many fans bought multiple copies of the newly released  "The Winners Manual" and the coach kept his Sharpie moving as he cordially greeted and thanked his fans often asking the youunger ones where they went to school and what position they played. Buckeye fans, like 10-year-old Makayla Valentine (left) and her 6-year-old sister Marin Vanentine, both students at  Montrose Elementary School in Bexley, were thrilled to be face to face and speak with Tressel.
