    2011 OSU Football-Will Tressel Survive?



    Picture of a t-shirt I saw in St Clairsville, OH at the Ohio Valley Mall.

    I think the title says it all.

    Updated article with the quote from the car guy about why Gibson's title said $0. He refinanced an existing loan and did nothing wrong.

    St. Clairsville, Ohio really has no cause to be looking down on anyone. That is the armpit of the universe.

    It actually came from a website called getsmack.com. Had some pretty decent t-shirts for colleges. Just happened to see it on a t-shirt there.

    St Clairsville actually used to be pretty decent at one point in time IIRC. I bought my fiancee's engagement ring there but pretty much all of the development has moved north to Wheeling.

    Mark Emmert wants to start hitting NCAA rule-breakers hard.

    The governing body's president said Tuesday he wants schools that violate the rules to pay a stiff penalty -- one that's punitive enough to make coaches and others think twice about cheating.

    "We need to make sure our penalty structure and enforcement process imposes a thoughtful level of concern, and that the cost of violating the rules costs more than not violating them," Emmert said.
    Well this has some surprising timing to it.

    UM AD on OSU:

    On Ohio State’s NCAA transgressions: “I know what it’s like to receive the papers from the NCAA … when you’re going through it it’s painful, it’s difficult, it’s stressful and what you don’t need is anybody … particularly a colleague … poking anything at you. There were some people out there that did it, and I remember who they are and I remember what they said.”

    Tressel hires legal big gun, has no plans to resign.

    I don't blame him for hiring a big gun. He'll need it. I'd do the same. It sure seems as though he disagrees with the Buckeye fans around here who think OSU will suffer few if any additional sanctions when the NCAA gets through with them

    The athletic department also signed on with a lawyer who is cozy with the Infractions committee.

    The columnist seems to imply that the legal teams they've hired are very good at what they do.

    I certainly wouldn't hire anybody that's not good at what they do, and I don't have 1/100th of the bankroll that OSU has.

    I'm sure that they are not only good at what they do, but possibly the best at what they do. If they manage to limit their penalties to anything near their self imposed sanctions, and keep Tressel on as coach, then I'll say these guys are the best at what they do.

    This story examines OSU football and car deals reporting:

    The Columbus Dispatch reported on May 7 that OSU was investigating more than 50 transactions between OSU athletes and their families and Jack Maxton Chevrolet or Auto Direct.

    That story is a joke and so is Ray Small. I feel sorry for him. Tressel gave him every chance he could and he clearly never got it.

    This may be, but its just as likely that what he says is mostly true IMO. There is no doubt in my mind that more OSU players have recieved special deals and have sold memorabillia for money. Really, I think that is true about close to every major program. It isn't going to be easy for a program already under the microscope to shake this off.

    That said, unless there is other evidence uncovered during the ongoing investigation into the car deals, I don't think it means a whole lot to OSU in terms of what the COI will hand out. It just fuels the fire of those who want to see OSU have the book thrown at them.
