    Since he knew this and said nothing makes you wonder, over the years, what else he has kept secret?

    The NCAA should drop the hammer! nPossibly even kick him out of college football.nLook at what BYU did for a basketball player who broke their honor code kicked him off the team, he may even get kicked out of school. nI was always told Jim Tressel was a man of honor. nDoes “The” OSU have any honor left I think not.nnwhere is my remote control I’ll watch Cake Boss over OSU football

    Tressel is a good man with a good heart, but that does not excuse his role in this. As soon as he knew, he should have sought out the AD or University Council, that is their jobs. Then to mislead the NCAA, that he knew nothing, makes it even worse. The University and Jim Tressel should swallow their punishment, much like they made the players swallow a 5 game suspension and basically forced them to stay an extra year. Mr. Tressel’s is worse, he knew in April and did nothing and sought out no advise, and then claimed no knowledge. He should look at a year suspension by the NCAA and possibly a removal from college football for a period of time. Bruce Pearl was a great guy at Tennessee until he got caught. Tressel’s actions from here on out should be watched like a hawk.

    If this would have been anyother coach in collage football the punishment would have been much worse.this has been proven with ohio state in the past 6 months when those same players were busted before there suger bowl game.maybe since those players have to sit out 5 games so should he he is as guilty as they are
