Yes, the NCAA has already obtained all of the information that ESPN is seeking from tOSU. I know that the e-mails between Tressel and Cicero can be read online and that they definitely went through all e-mails pertaining to any players, staff, and others involved like Sarniak and Digeronimo. The NCAA had all of this information that ESPN is seeking before they rendered their punishment to the school . NCAA investigators have moved out of Columbus and no further punishment will be handed down to the school. ESPN is just seeking this information for obvious reasons and their interest lies more in the business of creating and maintaining scandal and keeping certain matters like this relevant. They are killing two birds with one stone and at the same time attempting to de-value the Big Ten by destroying the reputation of one of it's most significant members. Had ESPN owned the Big Ten broadcasting rights, there would be no lawsuit right now because ESPN would not want to lessen the value of their own product. Maybe someone can answer this because I do not know but is there something inFERPA that gives ESPN access to athletes e-mails or are they trying to separate the e-mails from all of the other prohibitations in FERPA and say that because these are just e-mails. Are they admitting that they know that some e-mails will be from student to professor but some might not be and they believe they have the right to access those e-mails not related specifically to academics? If this is the case then I do not think the school should give up the students privacy solely for the purpose of helping ESPN sell papers. If the school does give up students information, can the students then take legal action against the school for doing so?
