Ohio State’s attempt to join the SEC ends with Tressel’s Resignation

The Ohio State University gave it their best shot, but at the end of the day they just weren’t corrupt enough to become the 13th member of the Southeastern Conference.  I mean what else could they have done?  Players were getting cars for free, selling memorabilia to tatoo artists and drug dealers, the coaches then tried to cover it up.  Improper benefits…check.  Running in circles with criminals…check.  Coaching staff lying to cover it up…check. What more could the SEC ask for?

Also, this is the kid who wrote the final story that did in Tressel.  Obviously he is a virgin and he is going to stay that way now.  He has got to be the most hated guy on campus.

    After OSU get hammered they will be just as many Big 10/11/12 teams on probation as the SEC. Two. Of course blogs like this are understandable. Afterall jealousy is a #####.

      Its not jealousy. I’d like to have my teams be able to pass the ACT/SAT, go to class, stay out of jail, and play by the rules than win fraudulant national titles. Vanderbilt is the only respectable institution in the SEC.

    Last year’s Sugar Bowl is a fraudulent win. What is fraudulent is how the media covers different school’s. Complete bias. Until recently, according to the media, Tressel was a saint. He ran a clean program, did everything the right way, and should be looked up to by all. Well, that is shot to hell. Tressel has ignored the rules since his day’s as an assistant at tOSU, to Youngstown state, and since being back at tOSU he thought he had free reign to do whatever he wanted. It is about to cost tOSU dearly. Tressel has made his millions, he moves on, retires, whatever. It is tOSU, the players, and fans that endure the penalties. Terrelle Pryor and the players that knowingly accepted improper benefits. Pryor probably leaves school and enters the supplemental draft. Why would you stay. Good luck to tOSU. I think this is going to hurt for a while.

      I agree with 90% of the stuff you said. I think Tressel and OSU got caught, but I don’t think Tressel deserves to lose his job. He did lie to cover it up, which is really bad he deserved a suspension. However, I have a hard time punishing him for the actions of his players. Its not like he was putting the players in contact with these people to hook them up. He should have turned them in, but he didnt then lied about it. It was a mistake. I dont want to tarnish the man’s legacy over one mistake.

    I don’t know Tressel. I’m sure in most respects, he is a great guy, a decent man, but the record that is coming out shines a pretty bad light on him and tOSU. We aren’t talking about allegations at this point, we are talking about facts that have come out. There are plenty of allegations and more to come I believe. The situation is that Tressel was in charge, it happened on his watch, he eats it. If he hadn’t told anyone about the information he received, and then lied to the NCAA, I may hold a little more belief in his story. The fact that he contacted the advisor to Pryor and no one else pretty much just goes to straight cover-up in my opinion.

    The Mayor :I stand corrected.

    Thanks for being a man about it and owning it.
