Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

Surprise, Surprise. He and his program are going down in flames due to NCAA violations and he ditches them and the student athletes he recruited.

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

With so much of this going on at schools around the country, one would have to be just plain stupid to sit by and let this happen without saying anything. Did Tressel think he was above the rules? Did he think he wouldn't get caught? Or is his buyout enough that he simply didn't care?

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

I still don't think Pryor did anything wrong by selling stuff like a Big 10 ring. It's his.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

I didn't have a problem with that either, given how the NCAA exploits those kids anyway.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

The NCAA makes BILLIONS off these kids, turns 18 year olds into national stars, but then acts surprised when these guys decide they would like to have a few bucks in their wallets, and not have to bum rides to the club. Not to mention prostituting the game itself to the highest bidder by continuing a ridiculous bowl system instead of a playoff. Only D1A does this. The other divisions don't. But Geneva and Mt Carmel aren't moneymakers for the NCAA, either.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

Doesn't matter whether you like the rules, or not. The point of the matter is that the rules are in place and EVERYBODY is required to live by them. They are known and agreed upon when entering into the position. Now you have Tressel bailing on his program, after being caught violating the rules, the same way Pete Carrol did at USC.

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

Exactly.

The problem is that the stuff he sold had the likeness of the NCAA and Ohio State on them. Those don't belong to him and are not for him to sell and profit by.

Re: Tressel Resigns from Ohio State

He lied to everyone he talked to about the inVESTtagation.
He was a cheater when he coached at Youngstown St.
He was asked to resign last week and the hold-up was a buy out that would be like hitting the lottery for the common man.

He was awarded a Big 10 championship ring, and a pair of gold pants that OSU gives to players for beating Michigan. I view this as being no different than if Ben would sell one of his Super Bowl rings. Perhaps Pryor thought the stuff given to him for being a successful player actually belonged to him.
