Coach Tressel/OSU

So how hard does the NCAA come down on Coach Tressel? Dez Bryant from Oklahoma State lost a full season for lying/misleading the NCAA, Do they treat a prominent head coach the same way?

Tressel has been so perfect throughout his whole career! It's not his fault all the players are idiots. He shouldn't have hid it but at least he finally fessed up. I'm sure there's a lot more crap out there that we don't know about other coaches....yet.

Finally fessed up? he would have never fessed up had he not got called out on the emails.

I'm sure theres alot more 'crap' about him that we 'dont know about.' at least the other coaches who haven't been 'caught' can be given the benefit of the doubt. Tressel, not so much IMO. We'll see what the NCAA has to say about how far the rabbit hole takes them.

Maybe Urban Myer will take over..

I don't know about the Dez Bryant issue but every case is different. Being a Buckeye fan it seems this is the never ending story. I just want it to be over one way or another. It's kinda funny how ESPN says breaking news about OSU and then they talk about stuff they already said. If this happened somewhere else I doubt they make a stink about it. I know it's basketball but look at Bruce Pearl how many chances did he get? I think for a first time offense (Tressel) a 5 game suspension is enough punishment. It's not like Tressel was cheating. His players sold there stuff which I think shouldn't even be a freaking issue. IMO

An overrated coach, conference and program, protected due to its financial worth. If it was shut down no one would miss it. Go SEC! Seriously, they should be punished.

Typical Ohio State hater and that's your first post. Hi Josh. It doesn't matter what conference your in it's hard to win 6 straight conference championships in a row. Tressel has proven that he's a good coach. I think every coach in college football has probably lied one time or another but they just haven't been caught yet. Not saying it's right but just saying... I think Tressel wanted to tell the truth but for whatever reason he didn't.

Essentially a slap on the wrist compared to what other less notable schools/coaches would receive. Of course, it's not worse than the blind eye turned to Cam Newton & Auburn

Yes, but OSU plays no one. If one team wins the SEC then they are poised to run the table. Of course, my hyperbole is great, but when OSU defeats an SEC team in a championship game, I will give them more respect. They are very good...just not SEC caliber IMHO

I thought when the Buckeyes beat Arkansas in last years bowl game that would shut people up about the SEC crap. Guess I was wrong. Damn haters.

Dez Bryant lied to the NCAA about having dinner with Deion Sanders, In the NCAA's world, Bryant having dinner with Sanders is a violation, If he had told the truth, Likely minor punishment, Instead he said it never happened, It of course did. The NCAA came down hard on him for lying and he missed the entire season.
So IMO no matter how you view Jim Tressel, I don't think it can be disputed that he lied to the NCAA, They set a pretty stern precident with Dez Bryant, I would think they would hold a head coach to a higher standard.
For the record, I am an Iowa guy, Love my Hawkeyes, Don't hate the Bucs at all, I root for all Big 10 teams in the post season. If Tressel ends up losing his job over this, OSU will just find another quality coach and their program will continue to roll on, I have no doubt about that.

I just don't think he should have hid it. Coaches get held to a higher as it should be. I mean look at what happened to my Wolverines basketball program, and we all know Steve Fisher hid stuff during the 90's.

I think the wins from last year should be vacated at the least because ineligible players were knowingly used by the coaching staff.

Ok, now just call me a bitter Wolverine fan tbaker...I'm waiting for it......


Hokeamania is coming and there's nothing you can do about it!
