    Tressel up to a 5 Game Suspension

    Ohio State's Jim Tressel increases suspension to five games - ESPN

    I think he knew the NCAA was going to hit him hard. This is a PR move to hopefully avoid further sanctions

    Those 5 games should be the last 5 of the year.

    I still hope the NCAA hits him harder than that...

    I say 5 games, ban him from recruiting for a year, and let Michigan choose the 5 games he is suspended.

    Agree. Dez Bryant is still not impressed.

    Same here.

    The decision is separate from the case involving Tressel, who did not disclose to the NCAA or Ohio State's compliance department for more than nine months that he was aware his players' received money and other benefits from a Columbus tattoo-shop owner.
    Failure to disclose the information for that long of a period should result in a longer suspension (or additional sanctions).

    The sanctions/suspension should last at least as long as the time Tressel sat on the information.

    I don't hate OSU or Tressell. I don't necessarily think he should get canned.

    But I do hope the NCAA does the right thing here. Dez received nearly a full season suspension for much, much less than what Tressell did.

    Since when has the NCAA been about fairness?

    THIS +1000

    NCAA knew these guys were ineligible during bowl season but still they played, same with Newton; "well his dad did it and that makes him ineligible but well just reinstate because it makes us money"

    The college players that have been suspended, has taken the number of games they played for semi-pro teams as the number of games for they suspension. Apply the same rule - Tressel knew before last season, he didn't say anything until 13 games later. Sounds like a season to me!

    I still like the plan to let Michigan pick the games instead!! :)

    I didn't see this posted, but here is a link to transcripts and even the emails that Tressel received in April. Interesting and more extensive than what I had realized.

    Ohio State vs. Michigan Football - Let the rivalry continue!
