"Tressel E-Mails Released -- his career could be over (link)"

Fuck yes, this deserves its own thread.

This is far and away worse than I could have *ever* imagined. I'm reading this shit in utter disbelief.

(1) The press-conference led me to believe that the attorney e-mailing Tressel was: representing the tattoo artist, an attorney working for the firm representing the artist, or an attorney working for the DA who had connections. That does *not* seem to be the case when reading the e-mails. This just seems like someone with an inside connection to law enforcement (as evidenced by the opening line of his first e-mail, "a lot of my friends are in law enforcement"). Sure he might be *a* attorney, but the "vow of confidentiality to protect the integrity of an ongoing federal investigation" takes a SERIOUS blow as an excuse (errrr "defense") in an NCAA investigation.

(2) Tressel's tacit acknowledgment of an offer to conduct an illegal activity *for* Tressel. The e-mailer states he MAY ATTEMPT TO STEAL THE SIGNED MEMORABILIA (keep in mind, protected evidence of an ongoing federal investigation) if "the opportunity presents itself." Tressel's responds with "thanks for your help," which is indeed a tacit acknowledgement, if not encouragement, to carry out such an act. This is the bombshell to me, because on one hand, Tressel uses upholding the integrity of an "ongoing federal investigation" as a ruse for his "confidentiality" yet, on the other hand, he is encouraging the obstruction of that very investigation. Maybe I'm misconstruing something, but that is damning.

(3) Pattern of deception and possible player-wide cover-up orchestrated by Tressel. The e-mailer tells Tressel to (a) show the players the tattoo artist's picture so that they can avoid him and (b) to tell them to *not* call the tattoo artist's cell phone number as it is being monitored by the feds. Tressel certainly listened to the "keep confidential" advice, and there is no reason to think he didn't take the aforementioned steps either. If so, he perpetrated an even further, willful concealment of a violation of NCAA rules. This is not just "keeping quiet about reporting something," this becomes taking tangible steps to cover it up. The NCAA will be interrogating each and every player to determine this, I guarantee it.

All in all, I really can't believe this. The OSU fans on this board were clowning Yahoo! for their "anonymous source." I knew they had something... but THESE WRITTEN RECORDS???

I could be wrong, but I just do not see this ending well.

<-- BAUGH SO HARD

he knew about the blatant violations in the first email. all he knew was the feds raided it. no mention of an "investigation." then he replied that he would "get on it." the request for confidentiality (which is bogus in itself, but still the excuse he is clinging to) didn't come until the subsequent e-mail, weeks later.

We informed the NCAA of this shit (Tress and the emails) in December, no one knew until someone either in the athletic department leaked it to Yahoo, or the anonymous emailer contacted Yahoo. All of this was discussed in yesterdays presser.


It wasn't like Yahoo unearthed some major shit and triggered the investigation. It was already underway. They were the first to report it.

it was already underway before Yahoo got their tip, and it was going to be unearthed eventually whether through Yahoo or the University.

its not the same as the USC situation.

not sure what you're not understanding here.

Vulnerable? no. Disappointed? A little.

that's pretty much fact. just because they didn't intercept the e-mail after Tressel hit send doesn't mean they weren't the first major media outlet to break the story.

I think the SF Chronicle BALCO was the last really big one for sports.

Also on SI, I thought their Armstrong 'expos' from a couple months back was weak.

I mean I'm sure Armstrong was on roids but there wasn't really anything in that story that really told me anything.

-SC got their clocks cleaned by yahoo

-OSU fans laughed about it

-bomb says 'if its not on ESPN then its not news or legitimate' or something to that effect

-20 years later it became legitimate and SC finally gets their clock cleaned by the NCAA

what this all has to do with Yahoo then getting some shit on OSU that was going to come out anyway is beyond me.

at the end of the day I dont think this will develop to anywhere near the level of what SC received. but the NCAA seems to be somewhat erratic in delving out punishment so who knows.

78. "i always thought everyone understood i meant "except osu""
In response to Reply # 49


  

          

and i'm only partly kidding.

what i've come to realize is that i need to revise my statements. i do believe there are two programs in the big ten--michigan and penn state--that remain committed to winning big with a level of integrity that escapes the uscs, auburns, alabamas, and ohio states of the world. it's an outdated and unrealistic worldview, but it's true.

richrod didn't do 1 percent of the stuff tressel apparently gets away with.

ohio state spends almost double the money on its football program than penn state does.

outside of those two schools and northwestern, however, i have no reason to think that schools like iowa and michigan state possess any special integrity. i probably haven't passed judgement on the incidents at those two schools enough because i'm secure enough with what penn state does and, well, ignoring it can make the problem go away.

the academic requirements are the same at every big 10 school

pass the NCAA clearinghouse and youre in

your holier than thou shit is funny given PSU's smattering of arrests over the past few years

and money? LOFL. we kick your ass all over the field because you have a 110 year old figurehead for a coach. fix that before worrying about your athletic budget.

2) this is an epic scandal of our chief rival... of course I'm gonna be keeping up on it

3) this is a niche sports forum whose signature theme is a handful of people waging never ending homoerotic flame-wars about who the best point guard in the NBA is. so please.

First link: hilarious shit, I would have posted regardless of the team.

The rest: all about Pryor. It's a known agenda of mine to hate on him. In fact I think you missed one... where I made a post of him being drafted as a TE.

I don't think you understand what OKS is. There's a dude who fellated OJ Mayo and made 5 different Derrick Rose hate posts per week here.

Thought you were a decent poster. Turns out you're just not that smart.

Nice try though. It's pretty entertaining thinking about you swinging from brown sugar's nuts, desperately entering my user name into the search query and combing through results for my posts.

fall back we don't need your testicle-suckling commentary after every perceived insult of me.

and up your reading comprehension game, because i'm pretty sure that was much more an underhanded insult to allstah than to me.

you clearly didn't get enough of this in your childhood: http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa5/chrisculbertson/reading-rainbow.gif

you're indian, you went to OSU, and you have time to post on OKS all day, everyday.

IT support at a straggling Fortune 500 secondary branch?

Worse?

The amount I'd bill to you for the time it would take to make that coffee would eclipse your weekly pay stub.

Fall back.

you arent a lawyer. you're a lame ass 1L who's been in ann arbor for the last 8 years. and you'll probably be working as a clerk for Sam Bernstein when you graduate.

lol unlike your lame ass, I dont have to boast to a bunch of message board nobodies about my life. It's lame enough you created a screen name in hopes of getting some e-pussy. Do your parents not give you the attention/approval you so desperately crave? Cheer up little fella.

e-pussy? on ok sports? wtf are you talking about?

i mean damn, at least come up with some coherent comebacks... slamming a top 10 law school and claiming i log onto okaysports for "e-pussy" just isn't a good look. this back and forth banter between us is getting a little stale anyways, though.

and we do share some indian pride, so i retract the IT comment; i'll stay in the sports lane when it comes to clowning you.

Cmon u can't play the "I don't care" card after you brought up my school and my employment prospects.

Second: I'd say 90% if not more of my 3k posts are on this board.

Lastly: the mythos behind the legendary "brown sugar"... basically as a lanky Indian I couldn't ball at all in high school but as a joke I'd always jack up pull-up threes and shit on fast breaks. The one-in-a-thousand time I'd hit it, I'd shout out "brown sugar!" Used it on a whim when registering here.

Fun fact: I still haven't listened to the dangelo album by the same name

Why don't you take a sabbatical and not post about OSU until the football season commences?

It would help your cause, if not, you will be labeled a scorned vagina, and rightfully so.

Tressel pulled G moves with square execution. Vacated games don't mean anything, they didn't for UM basketball, they don't now for Alabama football and they won't for OSU. Its a hollow punishment, esp in football where the banners aren't the end-all be-all.

If you want to be mad at JT, be mad at him ostensibly holding this over his players heads and forcing them to play another year when he KNEW the deal the whole season.

All in all this is some "every campus" type shit that I refuse to get worked up about or see as anything groundbreaking. Niggas still smashed UM, that vacated victory still hurts...they'll still smash UM this fall, life will go on.

JT is from Youngstown, the land of quiet gangster, anyone thinking he was less dirty than the rest of his peers was and is a fucking clown. or far too myopic

Don't act like your program is better because the dirty work has been getting handed off for years. Especially in that part of PA where folk on the team walk around fresh as fuck with nice ass cars but its State College so everyone is on that "what of it."

ALL PROGRAMS ARE DIRTY. DI football is full of hangers on, parasites, hook ups and so forth. It's the cost of freight. I know you're running the agenda game but if you think the slippage of PSU was just about Joe getting old and not about Joe getting old and not having someone play the game for him..you're insane.

This shit is more than about "scoreboard K.I.M," or "Your program suxx," or "U post like a pussy bitch ZooTowN," or "PSU duedz is hating"

Your head football coach willfully lied about getting a tip and knowingly played players who were ineligible. Fuck the results of the 2010 season, or "but but but 9-1!!!!!!!!!!" or "ALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS DIRTY." This cat played dumb at worst, lied at best. Period. Bruce Pearl got ass raped by the NCAA for lying. Dez Bryant got shown the fucking door for lying. Other schools that are NOT in the B1G Ten are watching this shit closely.

Your fucking athletic department just thumbed its collective nose in the face of the NCAA with it's self-imposed days off-- er, "suspension" against Akron and Toledo. This ain't just Michigan heads "crying" that this is a farce, or gleefully laughing at Ohio State football (but you can bet your lame scarlet and gray that ass we are, considering the hell we caught for 20 extra fucking minutes of stretching).

You've got journalists in Ohio calling for Tressel to step down. You've got cats who write for the student newspaper calling for him to be fired. Downplay it with as much sarcasm and "scoreboard BITCH!!!" as you need to, but this isn't some "who cares everybody else iz jealous of us" bullshit that you guys are trying to get across on these boards.

And it appears that this story is rapidly becoming something that you, or anyone else here, can't continue to downplay by saying, "well, this isn't a big deal, everybody in college football is dirty too." Well, no shit, but guess what? It's Ohio State's turn in front of the NCAA Kangaroo Court of Justice. Deal with it, and stop acting like this shit is about sour grapes and "u mad" and other people "hating" on your program.

The B10/NCAA tournament is around the corner, we're the number 1 seed and a favorite to win it all. There's other shit to worry about. It's out of our hands, and in the NCAAs. Jim Tressel isnt getting fired (much to OKS dismay). We're not going down in flames and we'll still run this conference.

journalist do matter because they aren't, you know BIAS. Journalist are supposed to be neutral, objective and open minded.

Don't you think the judgment of your president and AD are bit more one-sided due to their employment to the university? Of couse the AD and president are going to try to downplay this whole thing, it is in their BEST INTEREST to do so.

This is like pro Gaddafi supporters/loyalist saying, "well I am going to believe the word of Gaddafi over international journalist about possible human rights violations because he is the leader of Libya and really knows what is happening in his country."

Journalists don't matter in regards to choosing what coaches should be hired and fired. Which is what Zootown referred to.

Exactly, to the University. Not to Jim Tressel. If they deemed that what he did was a fireable offense, they would have fired him IMO. No one down played anything. They treated it like a major violation once they were aware, they informed the NCAA and proceeded. Jim Tressel tried to cover it up, and he'll pay the consequences (along with TOSU to an extent, unfortunately).


>This is like pro Gaddafi supporters/loyalist saying, "well I

analogy fail.

They down played it. When asked if Gee would fire Tressel, Gee said "No. Are you kidding me? I just hope the coach doesn't dismiss me." What kind of BS is that? That was Gee's attempt to down play the situation. Jim Tressel is part of the University, he is a very notable figure and face of the university, thus it is in their best interest to protect him. Especially since they have decided to retain him as their HC.

I agree that journalist aren't the ones who decide whether Tressel is fired or not but it is their job to at least ask the question. It is their job to discuss and debate whether the punishment fits the crime. Nothing wrong with that.

I am sorry but IMO a major violation calls for more than a 2 game suspension and 250K fine. As mentioned by Will, look what happened to Pearl when he was caught lying.

In response to Reply # 126


  

          

and had informed the NCAA as soon as they heard about it in early January, and had NCAA investigators involved in every step of the way...just like how they did when the Maurice Clarett allegations were brought up.

Agreed. I love Dr. Gee but sometimes he needs to quit with the comedian act. That wasnt a good look.

Agreed, but thats now how these self reported sanctions go. You lowball the NCAA, they come back with something higher, and then you lowball them again and hope you win on the appeal. I'm bracing myself for a season long suspension.

In response to Reply # 131


          

it makes it look like Tressel is running the show and Gee is just along for the bow ties.

I think it is great that OSU reported this as soon as they found out. My complaint is the punishment doesn't seem to fit the crime, at least IMO. I do agree with you that this is how these punishments work, low ball it and wait for the NCAA to come back with their punishment.

their job is to drum up readership. nothing sells better than OSU. between the rabid fanbase and the rabid anti-OSU fanbase...it's a guaranteed sell.

and no they dont matter. journalists hold as much relevance as fans do. the degree of yapping in the press isnt gonna get JT fired or influence the NCAA's ruling.

For me, this isn't about OSU as much as it is about the NCAA and how "fair" they are when handing down punishments.

That is all I really care about. This could be Texas, Florida, Auburn, or even Cal for all I care. I for one and probably every schools in D1 want to see what the NCAA does in this situation.

In response to Reply # 101


  

          

Tressel looked out for him and his season and he'll get nailed on this. Depending on how the NCAA is feeling he'll get nothing or an extra game. He isn't a repeat offender ON THIS LEVEL(before someone says 375) like Pearl so he won't get fired with the show cause.

It can't be about the action, because I think we've all come to the point where we recognize this is widespread and common.

And as for vacating the season...who cares?

138. "speaking of the school newspaper article: Give Tressel the boot"
In response to Reply # 101


  

          

Give Tressel the boot
By Grant Freking

freking.4@osu.edu

Published: Tuesday, March 8, 2011
Updated: Wednesday, March 9, 2011 10:03

http://www.thelantern.com/sports/give-tressel-the-boot-1.2083500

The NCAA shouldn't suspend Jim Tressel for more than two games. It shouldn't fine him more than $250,000 dollars. It shouldn't bar him from spring practice and summer workouts.

After it finishes its investigation, the NCAA should recommend Jim Tressel's termination as head football coach at The Ohio State University.

This incident is further proof that college athletics is spinning out of control, and a message needs to be sent to university presidents and athletic directors who let rule-breaking coaches keep their jobs because they win games and sell tickets.

And that's exactly why Tressel, who said he never considered resigning, didn't tell the athletic department that he had received an e-mail from an attorney indicating OSU football players were selling memorabilia to Edward Rife. Rife, the owner of Fine Line Ink tattoo parlor, is one of the focal points of a federal drug investigation.
Tressel's contract states that he is bound to report any possible violation immediately.

He didn't.

When Regular Joe with a normal job breaches his contract, he gets the boot.

So should The Vest.

"I am sorry and disappointed this happened," Tressel said. "At the time the situation occurred, I thought I was doing the right thing."
Doing the right thing? Surely a deeply religious man with a newly released book titled "Life Promises for Success: Promises from God on Achieving Your Best" knows the difference between right and wrong.

Or does he?

Maurice Clarett and Troy Smith, the highest-profile players of the Tressel era other than current Buckeye quarterback Terrelle Pryor, were both suspended for accepting improper benefits. Tressel also had a player do the same thing at Youngstown State.

It's clear that Tressel, also author of "The Winner's Manual," wants to win at all cost. The mantra is shared by athletic director Gene Smith and university President E. Gordon Gee, who make up the university's "Big Three."

When asked whether he considered firing Tressel, Gee gave a clear indication of who actually runs the university.

"No, are you kidding?" Gee said with a laugh. "Let me be very clear: I'm just hoping the coach doesn't dismiss me."

I rest my case.

At this point OSU has given Tressel a slap on the wrist. The NCAA should break his arm.

99. "You're being intentionally stupid"
In response to Reply # 95


  

          

Remember when PSU stopped getting shit on by everyone? The resurgence of competitiveness? When you got some nuts about you on this college football shit?

It coincided with this;

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/otl/news/story?id=3504915

There were these incidents;

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/36535-from-penn-state-to-state-penn-penn-states-nine-best-ever-arrests

This is off a basic google search. Also, again...it's state college, the infractions that go on in major cities that might get some light can chill in that area because of the closed town atmosphere. If someone snitched on the local tattoo joint, that person would be ostracized.

In short, come the fuck on, we both know you're smarter than this and having this discussion about this flawed system serves no good.

In response to Reply # 99


  

          

that's normal college kid shit. you never heard me say shit about that anywhere. you'd love to be able to compare apples to oranges, but it won't fly. raising hell is one thing, and i think there's a limit to what programs can do to control that. pay-for-play schemes are the easiest things in the world to spot and sniff out. Yahoo does it with a twelve person staff. if that shit happens at the level it does at ohio state, it's because the program wants it to happen.

hell, after the initial bout of glee, i even defended the Ohio State players pre Sugar Bowl. you should be able to sell your shit. but the AJ Hawk shit, the free cars, and all the rest of that is endemic of a pay for play system. i will agree that this exists at most BCS schools. it may even exist at Penn State and Michigan, but the series of violations y'all have wracked up shows that you do it far more and to a far greater extent than not just those two schools but most of em.

DUI's fights and weed are more socially acceptable than side compensation for being an elite member of a small group? Ok, so you aren't playing stupid you just have an interesting moral compass.

You're right that there's a pay for play system for some student-athletes. You're wrong in acting as if your campus is free of it or that it's really wrong on a micro level. (There are issues with competitive balance and corruption on a larger level)

Also, yes, I never claimed OSU didn't do it big, there's a reason why the program is in the top 5-10 every year. The amount you're willing to look past to keep 5* recruits flowing is fairly commiserate with the success of your program. JT just needed some classes on email etiquette and technology. Think Saban, Meyer, or even Kiffin is getting caught on the email? NOPE

What happens at OSU happens at every school you watched play From January 1 on. I mean, if you're mad that your school is wack in football, get on our level and get better boosters.

I'll take BCS games and illegal cash flow over 8 wins and stupid weedcarriers and social rabble rousing 10 times out of 10

Ok and after 50-11 replies we're going to end up standing in the same wide circle? ... I h8 you now.

Tress is a snake for the way he held this over the kids heads, especially given that it's logical thought to assume he may have been doing it before it came all the way to light in the public.

Speaking to the letter of the law, you're correct in his duties too, I tend to err on the side of ignoring those rules because of how inconsistently they're applied and enforced though.

See I can forgive the kids because as you said, most of them are broke and the whole system is profiting off them. Plus, throw in the fact that they are kids and kids don't make the best decisions.

However, this is the coach, who is supposed to know better who fucked up. This was a veteran coach, who is well respected because of his "morals" who fucked up. This is a coach who knows how the NCAA works and has dealt with NCAA violations in the past who fucked up.

This is a grown man who lied about knowing any of this in December and tried to blame this whole mess on the kids. He basically threw these kids under the bus for his own reputation and professional gain.

get that cash, kid.

Jim Tressel, on the other hand, lies to protect his chances of winning. OSU, on the other hand, turned a blind eye towards cheating.

Jim Tressel and OSU have no moral defense of their actions and their lies.

and you're deflecting back to the kids because you KNOW the coach was wrong.

"If you want to be mad at JT, be mad at him ostensibly holding this over his players heads and forcing them to play another year when he KNEW the deal the whole season."

Who's getting blamed for what?

Tress= a snake in a way many of his peers are and especially wrong for how it seems he used the kids.
kids=rulebreakers but morally I find no fault in their actions and hate that they're hemmed up
Fans=inconsistent, mad at the wrong things, idiotically running to the rulebook in a system where the majority of the successful wipe their ass with said rules

You caught up now? IF you're still thinking that I'm deflecting go check the archives where I go at it with OSU fans for how JT treats his players he deems he doesn't need anymore. Like the Ray Small/Rob Rose types.

either that or he is demonstrably DUMBER than others, because he's the only one we know that has basically blackmailed players.

so you either support a uniquely DIRTY coach or you support a uniquely STUPID coach. either way, he's an embarrassment to a program, right today.

edit: also, if things are wrong on a macro level, then they are wrong on the micro level. that's why they're not allowed at a micro level. else you're devolving into anarchy. There are lots of things I could do that are harmless that are not acceptable because at the macro level, it's a problem. the "no harm, no foul" logic just doesn't really work.

Or take a look at Bruce Feldman's book on recruiting and how Meyer handled his when he was building UF. Then talk about someone being uniquely dirty. He doesn't stand out.

Now sending emails? whooo that's a big hustle backwards. Someone had to let him know about this so he was either slipping or in desperate need of training. (I said that above too)

In any case..I'm not a JT fan, I'm not really an OSU fan either I just live here. I'm just not a fan of shortsighted moralizers.

I have nothing to contribute here, just complaining.

His decision isn't bond.

And Ray is silly and definitely the product of insufficient daddying but if that "family" shit that Tress spit was equally applied the Ray would have developed. He wasn't bad, he just showed up on some Namond Brice shit. No grown man at all. And they let him be stupid without real consequence till they found another slot and returner they felt good about.

Trust me, theres plenty of fault on the Smalls and Tress.

http://mgoblog.com/content/somewhat-complete-accounting-recent-ohio-state-funny-business

or the record. Let me know if I've missed anything. Right now it's just on the edge of plausibility that incidents are "isolated," reported solely by lint-brush-wielding madmen.
2003

That's a nice car/job/wad of money. Maurice Clarett sits out the season after claiming his expensive dealership car was robbed of over 10k in stuff. Questioned by the NCAA, Clarett refuses to give straight answers to questions 17 times because "half the team would've been suspended, and it would've been worse for everybody."

Clarett also claims his grades were total fiction, he got phantom jobs, that coaches would tell him to talk to certain people who just happened to drop thousands of dollars they didn't care about, that he got free cars and free rent. Ohio State fans discount Clarett as mentally unstable, which he is.

That's a nice tutor. Clarett's grad student tutor confirms the total fiction grades bit of Clarett's story to the New York Times. The internal response was lovely: "Goings attacked the teaching assistant's credibility, saying he found it difficult to believe her because she had a history of psychiatric problems and displayed what he called erratic behavior." Goings calls the tutor a liar and fires her after she meets with him about another player.
2004

That's a nice job. Booster Robert Q Baker gives Troy Smith $500 for a fake job, getting Smith suspended a couple games and himself dissociated from the program. A couple years earlier Chris Gamble also worked for Baker's company.
2005

AJ Hawk is a depression-era farmer. The apartment of AJ Hawk and Nick Mangold is robbed. Items declared missing include $1400 worth of movies, a $500 Gucci watch, and $3000 in cash, presumably kept under the bed and away from those fat cats at National City.
2010

Tatgate. Five Ohio State players are found to have sold memorabilia in exchange for tattoos. Jim Tressel is given a credible tip about it in April and does nothing.

That's a nice car II. Terrelle Pryor has been pulled over for traffic violations three times in his Ohio State career. All three times he was in a car registered to Auto Direct, a local dealership. The guy running the dealership is named "Kniffin"not a good sign. He also has signed OSU memorabilia all over his walls.
Ongoing

You can't throw a rock on eBay without hitting an auction for the gold pants charms handed out after Michigan victories from as recently as 2009which means there's a fair chance the players in question are still on the team.

Between January 1st, 2000, and May 2009 Ohio State reported 375 secondary violations, most of any D-I school.

Santonio Holmes is taken care of.

Former NFL agent Josh Luchs outed dozens of players in the SI cover story that served as promotion from his upcoming book, but he'd long stopped paying when he visited Santonio Holmes in '05:

"We met (Holmes) outside the football building," Luchs wrote, "and he said, 'Listen, I want to save you the time. We don't need to meet. I've been taking money from (an agent) the last couple years, and he's been taking care of my family too.'"

and what's "fair market value" for athletic memorabilia? you could argue any price is fair.

i agree players should be able to sell their own stuff, but it opens up so many potential loop holes for shady shit...i see why it's deemed illegal.

Jim Tressel and the NCAA: A timeline
Published: Tuesday, March 08, 2011, 10:14 PM
Updated: Tuesday, March 08, 2011, 10:33 PM

http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2011/03/jim_tressel_and_the_ncaa_a_tim.html

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Reviewing the Ohio State coach's brushes with the NCAA rulebook:

At Youngstown State

Feb. 16, 2000: YSU self-imposes sanctions, which the NCAA approves, on Tressel's football program after a two-year investigation finds improper payments to a football player by a member of the school's board of trustees. As part of the sanctions, YSU vacated six scholarships over a three-year period and reduced its number of paid recruiting visits. Michael Monus, former YSU board chairman, was found to have provided nearly $10,000 and the use of automobiles to Ray Isaac, who was in the program from 1988 to '92. Monus and Isaac were banned from any participation in YSU athletics. The university's report to the NCAA said no one else at the university had any knowledge at the time of the Monus and Isaac arrangement.

At Ohio State

July 12, 2003: The New York Times quotes a teaching assistant at Ohio State as saying running back Maurice Clarett received "preferential treatment." She says he walked out of a midterm exam but ended up passing the class after the professor gave him an oral exam.

July 29, 2003: Ohio State confirms the NCAA is investigating Clarett's claim that more than $10,000 in clothing, CDs, cash and stereo equipment was stolen in April from a 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that Clarett had borrowed from a local dealership.

Sept. 9, 2003: Clarett charged with misdemeanor falsification on the police report on the theft. The charge carries a penalty ranging from probation to six months in jail and $1,000 fine.

Sept. 10, 2003: Then-athletic director Andy Geiger announces Clarett is suspended for the season. Geiger said Clarett received special benefits worth thousands of dollars from a family friend and repeatedly misled investigators.

Dec. 17, 2003: Ohio State says a university committee finds no evidence to support allegations of academic misconduct by athletes, including Clarett.

Dec. 20, 2004: Troy Smith suspended for 2004 Alamo Bowl, and eventually for 2005 season opener, for accepting about $500 from a booster.

Dec. 28, 2004: Ohio State announces it will sanction a booster who gave money to quarterback Troy Smith.

Early 2009: Between the end of the 2008-09 season and early in the 2009-10 season, players Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas sell memorabilia for a total of $7,050 to the owner of a Columbus tattoo parlor. The merchandise includes 2008 Big Ten championship rings, Herron's jersey, the gold pants charm Pryor received for beating Michigan and Pryor's 2009 Fiesta Bowl Sportsmanship Award. Herron, Posey, Thomas and linebacker Jordan Whiting also receive discounted tattoos.

November 2009: The Ohio State compliance office goes into more detail about players not being allowed to resell items such as championship rings and jerseys given to them by the school. The players realize they have violated an NCAA rule with their previous sale, but stay silent.

April 2010: Tressel receives e-mails saying some of his players broke NCAA rules by selling memorabilia but keeps the information to himself.

Dec. 7, 2010: U.S. Attorney's office discovers Ohio State memorabilia in a raid on the tattoo parlor and home of the owner.

Dec. 8, 2010: Attorney's office informs the Ohio State Athletic Department of the discovery.

Dec. 9-15, 2010: Ohio State starts what Athletic Director Gene Smith called "investigation planning."

Dec. 16, 2010: Ohio State interviews the players involved.

Dec. 17, 2010: Ohio State tells the NCAA and Big Ten that it plans to self-report violations.

Dec. 19, 2010: Ohio State submits the report.

Dec. 21, 2010: NCAA conducts phone interviews with the players involved; the Buckeyes practice for the last time before breaking for Christmas.

Dec. 22, 2010: NCAA makes its decision, ruling the five players ineligible for the first five games of 2011 and Whiting ineligible for the first game of 2011. All remain eligible for the Sugar Bowl.

Dec. 23, 2010: Ohio State calls the players and informs them of the ruling and holds a news conference.

Jan. 4, 2011: Ohio State wins the Sugar Bowl, 31-26, over Arkansas with a full roster.

Monday: An Yahoo Sports report says Tressel knew in April 2010 of possible NCAA violations involving players selling memorabilia to owner of a tattoo parlor.

Tuesday: Ohio State suspends Tressel for two games and fines him $250,000 for having knowledge in April about players who sold the merchandise and failing to notify the university. Tressel also must attend an NCAA compliance seminar. OSU became aware of this situation Jan. 13 and notified the NCAA on Feb. 3. The NCAA might accept or alter OSU's self-imposed penalties, according to AD Gene Smith.

would be willing to believe him a bit more. The fact is he has dealt with the NCAA in the past and as a veteran coach with his amount of experience in college coaching, he should know better than anyone how this works.

I meant a first time CFB HC, kind of like PC at USC or a guy who has NFL HC experience but no CFB HC experience.

Even then you are still right, no excuse for this kind of oversight.

penalties or sanctions against OSU, Jim Delaney will help protect OSU and Tressel.
