MOUNT VERNON — According to the record books, Ohio State’s record in football in 2010 is now 0-12.

The university announced it is vacating all of its wins for the season, as well as its appearance in the 2011 Sugar Bowl, due to then head coach Jim Tressel’s knowledge of the use of ineligible players.

The move was clearly an attempt to appease the NCAA and avoid any future sanctions.

If the school was hoping for any support from Buckeye fans in Knox County, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

Fans, overall, appear to be done with the whole issue.

“I don’t care anymore,” said Ron Warner, a Mount Vernon resident who has followed the Buckeyes for decades. “I lost interest after they canned Tressel. I think (the NCAA) needs to pay attention to real crimes, and leave OSU alone. They got rid of the coach. That ought to be enough.”

Not everyone agrees. Upper Arlington resident Dale Trenary, here in town to visit friends, says we still haven’t heard it all.
