Default Trouble for the Buckeyes

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...-the-NCAA.html

Quote:
If you came away from Ohio Stateís news conference on Tuesday evening feeling as if you didnít learn anything, Iíd ask you to reconsider.

We learned a lot.

Of course, we found out that Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel would be suspended for the first two games of the 2011 season ó glorified exhibitions against Akron and Toledo ó as well as fined $250,000 for failing to notify the school that he knew some players were selling memorabilia or exchanging it for tattoos.

Oh, and donít forget about the public reprimand, apology and mandatory attendance at a compliance seminar. How stern of the administration!

Those are the self-imposed sanctions the university has placed on Tressel, who failed to report to the schoolís compliance department that two players were involved in a federal drug investigation ó something he was made aware of by an attorney in April. Instead, Tressel sat on the information while the players continued to see action on the field because he didnít know who to tell.
Clearly he thought he could get away with it by shutting his mouth. Now that it's all come out, he looks terrible. It's a fireable offense, but it looks like he'll survive. To me, this is a microcosm of NCAA sports: coaches will bend the rules, be dishonest, and do anything to get ahead because there is so much pressure to win. Is Tressel's punishment enough?

NCAA needs to nail his balls to the wall.

He stood there on the Nat'l stage talking about how his players made an honest mistake and he had their word they would return to serve their suspensions next year. Not only did he know about it in APRIL and had he come forward then those players would have been suspended back then and the Buckeyes wouldn't have sniffed a decent Bowl game. But he lied to everyone including his AD and President

Dez Bryant lied to the NCAA and missed all of that year, Tressel does the same thing and he can't coach against Akron and Toledo? Give me a F'ing break.

Too many words mush.

Fired and OSU on immediate probation.

Just saying there's no reason to even explain what you did. It's obvious Tress and the university need to be blown to hell.

Tress-fired
OSU-probation

I just like making it simple cuz when you get older, you need to save the time.



My only concern is if Tress gets fired that Meyer gets the job.



Talk about trading one slimeball for another.

You know if Meyer moved back to my neck of the woods or is he still down there?

He's still down here. He's part of the UF athletic department.

Uh oh. Buck's close friend Jim Tressel has been fired. Will he be crashing at your place while he tries to get back on his feet?

Guess Ellis has some pretty good connections.

What's worse: the state of OSU football or the division names in the Big Ten? Yuck:

Quote:
Rant #4: The Big Ten's division names are idiotic.

Seriously, Legends and Leaders? That's awful. What's perhaps worse is Ohio State are in the Leaders group when they are arguably the most legendary team in Big Ten lore (I'd say Nebraska is more legendary, just not in Big Ten lore), but they are cheaters! Who names a group of cheaters leaders?

That being said, the balance of the divisions is pretty solid. I might have swapped Illinois with Minnesota, but not bad.
