Ohio State/Tressle

I'm shocked that no one's commented on this debacle yet. That was all some shady sh!t.

Re: Ohio State/Tressle

  • Girl, college football is done for now, we got March Madness rolling around!
    I swim because I'm too damned sexy for a sport that requires real clothing.
  • He needs to resign.  Sorry, but he KNEW of the violations and did nothing.  To me, that should be it, you are done.  But it's the NCAA so nothing will happen other than the BS suspensions during games that don't matter b/c Ohio State will win 50-0 either way.

    An attorney who works with the NCAA on these types of violations felt that the suspensions were a "little light" and when that's being said, I'm thinking that the NCAA will take a harder line on that.  It would be one thing if the student-athletes did something and he didn't know about it.  It's another if he knew and he deliberately lied about it (re: Bruce Pearl and now Tressel).  Tennessee suspended Pearl for 8 conference games.  That's a lot considering that the major conference schedules are pretty competitive (though the SEC is pretty soft this year).

    But who knows.  The OSU Compliance Department is staffed with six full time people, five of which are licensed attorneys.  I'm sure they can put those legal writing skills to work and find a way to appeal.  

    Or maybe not since the e-mails were leaked and Tressel admitted he knew.  That makes it tricker.

    Compliance issues are fun.  They make sure my DH has a job.

  • Also per the Columbus Post-Dispatch:

    "Since 2006, the NCAA has sanctioned 27 schools for violating bylaw 10.1, which requires coaches and others to be truthful and forthcoming about possible NCAA violations. Of the 12 coaches involved, only one kept his job. The others either resigned or were fired by their schools."

    Now if the NCAA warrants this to be grievous enough (and they could)) they could slap Tressel with a "show cause" penalty as well if Ohio State lets him go.  Basically it blacklists him from being hired at other member NCAA institutions for a set period of time.  Coaches usually get that for major rules violations, and if there is evidence that there is a "culture of misconduct" and "lack of institutional control."
