Jim Tressel: What Will Be the Fate of the Ohio State Football Program?
Jim Tressel Has Gotten Himself and Ohio State in Hot Water for Failing to Disclose Information About NCAA Violations, but What Will Come of the Scandal?
Jim Tressel loves to change his story.
In the video (from Sports by Brooks) with this post, you can see Tressel's explanation for his inaction when it came to the information about what his players were doing in concert with a local tattoo parlor.
Right after that, you get to see his latest explanation for his actions, which is evidently the fact that he did not seek "wise council" about what to do with the information.
It seems that his explanations get worse and worse as we go on.
I'm really curious as to if anyone other than some Ohio State fans are buying the garbage that Tressel is constantly spewing out of his mouth when he talks about this entire thing.
The man is the head coach of one of the top football programs in the country, and he's trying to act like he was new to this whole game, that he didn't know what was wrong and that he didn't talk to the right people before this all hit the media.
It's all a smokescreen, as Tressel is trying to fool us into believing what he's saying. Here's the reality of the situation: Tressel found out about the tattoos, then he kept the knowledge secret so he could keep winning football games, only to lie about when he was aware of this situation to the school and the media.
Once that happened, he was able to get his players to play in the biggest game of the season but take a suspension the following year, just to win the Sugar Bowl. On top of that, he then takes a two-game suspension once it's revealed that he knew all along, only extending it to five, just like his players, when their appeal to the NCAA was denied.
This whole situation has proved Tressel to be just as bad as the rest when it comes to these things and it's sad and pathetic to watch as he tries to reason away his poor judgment and lack of character.
The NCAA is going to continue to look into this situation and I don't think extending a suspension to five games is going to be enough to prevent further sanctions against the Buckeyes. It's just a matter of how serious it's going to be.
