Actually, it's not clear at all what exactly he was talking about. It's puzzling that he'd come out of retirement to coach a program that currently is being investigated for multiple infractions and has been slapped with the dreaded "lack of institutional control" tag if he indeed left coaching because of a moral dilemma. It's a great narrative but no one outside of the State of Ohio will buy that brand now that the iconic Tressel has had his book placed in the discount bin. He's alway's wanted to coach at OSU and a cash cow like OSU needs a name guy. That's the hire plain and simple.
I wish him luck because the Big Ten is much more interesting with a strong program in Columbus.
Ohio State has not been hit with lack of institutional control. Not sure where you got that info, but it's inaccurate. Further, the investigative portion of the Ohio State infractions is over with. It's in the hands of the committee of infractions to decide whether or not to accept Ohio State's self-imposed sanctions.
