The article details a number of infractions over an 8 year period. Including:
- Tressels NCAA problems at YSU - that have already been reported and are very similar to the problems currently at OSU.

According to his fellow assistant, Tressel rigged the raffle so that the elite prospects won -- a potential violation of NCAA rules. Says the former colleague, who asked not to be identified because he still has ties to the Ohio State community, "In the morning he would read the Bible with another coach. Then, in the afternoon, he would go out and cheat kids who had probably saved up money from mowing lawns to buy those raffle tickets. That's Jim Tressel."
That's Jim Treseel, former Ohio State Football coach. What a memorial day to remember.
