Last April, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel received an e-mail telling him that "two of his players were caught up in a federal drug-trafficking case and the sale of memorabilia, breaking NCAA rules."
He ignored this e-mail and continued business as usual.
Apparently, lying about this kind of stuff is a pretty big deal. Tressel did not see it this way, and now, he will be missing the first two games of the 2011 season, under suspension from the university.
While a few of his top players, including QB Terrelle Pryor, will be missing five games to start the season, the coach will only miss two games, in addition to a $250,000 fine, among other slaps on the wrist.
Our social media has become the cornerstone of quick information and information sharing, and these are the best of the best from the Twitter world on what they are saying about Tressel.
