I think it's kind of moot at this point. The writing is on the wall; Tressel will resign after the season is over, before the NCAA investigation rules, and his past violations will not matter at that point. Since the notice of violations by the NCAA are focused on Tressel himself, OSU will escape any major penalties, and a smooth coaching transition will take place at the end of the season. What we can hope for a prolonged limbo period where the black cloud hangs over OSU with uncertainty over penalties.
