This whole situation reeks of a "non-firing" firing -- I find it hard to believe that Tressel would spend all winter / spring dodging bullets only to decide on his own now, at the end of May, that it's simply too hard to stay.
As I said... it's not that I don't think something changed, but I think the timing reeks of being more about the SI article coming out than anything having to do with the NCAA. The NCAA hearing isn't even until August. That means there won't even be a ruling until later this fall. There can be whispers, but it's not even remotely time where those whispers would really come out as the NCAA is still compiling information.
