Ohio State football: NCAA penalties could be severe
from the Columbus Dispatch:




Ohio State University is potentially facing the most severe NCAA penalties to its storied football program as punishment for coach Jim Tressel's failure to disclose his knowledge of violations and use of ineligible players during this past season.

In a "notice of allegations" given to Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee on Friday and obtained by The Dispatch, the NCAA accused Tressel of dishonesty for hiding violations by seven current and former players who sold awards and equipment to a tattoo-parlor owner.

Ohio State, however, was not cited for "failure to monitor" or "failure of institutional control" violations, which would likely lead to the harshest of penalties. Such penalties are typically imposed when a university's compliance program is weak.

"That was very significant," a source close to the investigation told The Dispatch today. ...........(more)

2. I vote for a three year ban from Bowl Games, or eligibility for the Big 10 Championship
:-)

3. Oopsie! And with the Cornhuskers joining the conference this year,
too. Go Big Red! I'd go to their game against Minnesota, but it's too damned close to Nebraska, so Nebraska fans will be here in force, driving up the price of tickets. Damn!

NU - Big 10 Champions, 2011-12! My prediction.

4. I make no apologies for my love of Ohio State Football
... but I do not see him staying on as head couch of the Buckeyes. All these charges were
clearly known when this story broke the second time. All of the wins of the 2010 season
will be stripped, odds a very good OSU will lose some scholarships, and Tressel will have to
step down. This is the 4th time something like this has happened under his watch. 1 time
@ Youngstown State and 3 times at OSU,
