    More trouble brewing in Columbus for Tressel

    A new report is coming out that Tressel was aware as early as April about the players exchanging memorabilia for tattoos. Sounds like a rather obscure "concerned person" contacted Tressel. Who knows the true validity of the suspected source.

    Tressel knew of gear scheme last April - College Football - Rivals.com

    Here is what comes to mind for me and what I want to bring up for discussion: You are a head coach at a high profile major university. You receive information from hundreds of people a day about all kinds of things. You have a responsibility to keep your team in compliance and upholding all ncaa rules, but what extent do you have to investigate every little accusation, especially those from a rather obscure source?

    The sweater vest is bulletproof. This will not be a problem for Tressel.

    I wouldn't say it's the sweater vest, per se, but the logo that's placed upon it...

    I'm disgusted by all of the cheating in college football and men's college basketball. It's really starting to make me sick.

    The lesson to be learned is that its okay to cheat and really do whatever you want, as long as your team is good.


    I agree, disgusting.

    Yeah I've lost a lot of respect for college athletics in the past year. Whatever it takes to win and make money!

    Re: More trouble brewing in Columbus for Tressel

    He could really be in trouble for this. I know it's easy to assume that this will just be another slap on the wrist, but the NCAA does not like to be lied to. USC's RB coach lying to the NCAA about knowing the agents who were providing Reggie Bush with improper benefits was a major part of the NCAA's case against USC. Dez Bryant missed most of his last season at OSU for lying about meeting Deion Sanders, and Bruce Pearl is in real danger of losing his job this offseason after lying to the NCAA.

    If the NCAA finds that Tressel did know about this in April, he could be looking at some serious penalties.

    There is a press conference Scheduled. I would be floored if they fired him for this. Suspension maybe.

    AD back to address allegation against Tressel - College Football - Rivals.com

    Me too. Over the last few years I've become convinced that high school athletics is the last (almost) pure sports there is. The kids play hard and at a high level. There's no better cheap and good entertainment on a winter night than a high school basketball game as far as I'm concerned.

    Cheating has been gone on for a very long time in college sports. It's just more widely known now, with message boards and 24/7 coverage of recruiting. John Wooden's UCLA dynasties were made possible by Sam Gilbert paying a lot of his players.

    When I think back to college basketball when I was a kid...those two groups jump out. They were fun to watch...I will definitely be watching the shows on them
