makes a good point as well when he mentions that these guys at yahoo sports have a pretty impeccable track record when it comes to sources.
Tressel knew of violations 8 months pryor?
went out of his way to indicate his doubts about the media witchhunt being unleashed on Rich Rodriguez.
I am going to give Jim Tressel the benefit of the doubt, and as of right now there is a hell of a lot of doubt.
but even at the time, I realized that Tressel had far too many potential selfish motives for supporting Rodriguez to be convinced he was genuine.
are some tattoo's of his own. He atleast has a tramp stamp.
i hate the bucks, but mich doesnt exactly have the cleanest record with the fab five and under rich fruad...but i can now point out the hypocracy when they try to talk smack about violations and cheating muhahahahah. go blue!!
One of my favorite things ever is Cadbury Creme Eggs. Those lucky j-holes overseas get those things ALL YEAR LONG and sometimes in vending machines.
Taste like love.
There is NO WAY Tressel would EVER ignore proof that his starting QB is selling memorabilia, even when he knows he has no decent backup.
There is NO WAY that Tressel would look the other way while TP gets membership into the double-secret Escalade of the Month Club.
There is NO WAY Tressel would allow "tutors" to do Maruice Clarett's classwork for him to keep him eligible.
There is NO WAY Tressel would allow "escorts" to keep his players (such as the aforementioned Clarett) "out of trouble."
There is NO WAY Tressel knew anything about the violations that happened while he was at Youngstown State.
There is NO WAY Tressel would ever allow alums or "hostesses" to influence recruits.
Just like there is NO WAY that Earle Bruce was seen numerous times at the racetrack with Art Schlichter.
Jim Tressel: cleanest coach in college football.
OSU: cleanest program in college football.
This message was sponsored by the OSU sycophant foundation.
I'll supply the cheese grater.
OSU and Tressel is found guilty of failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance. Pryor and his cohorts are declared ineligible for the 2010 season and OSU vacates all victories. MSU now wins Big 10 Rose Bowl tiebreaker over Wisconsin (we know this because of all the billboards...*sigh*....always with the billboards, Sparty) and NCAA dictates the game be replayed with TCU squaring off against MSU. TCU destroys Sparty by 30 points. A humiliated Dantonio goes on a post game rant declaring the sanctions against OSU "bullshit" and accuses Michigan of framing Tressel, egging Tom Izzo's house, and assassinating Kennedy.
the Yahoo Sports reporter in question is an MSU grad with a journalism degree.
For the record I do not want OSU getting the hammer due to the hit it would take on the rivalry. Off the top of my head.
S. Holmes Tweet that he took down about not paying for his tattoos at tOSU.
A.J. Hawk had some smoke around him about cash at OSU
A. Katzenmoyer eligibility
T. Smith spaghetti dinners
Add Tater's list w/ Clarett and Tressel past at YSU and the list goes on and on.There's plenty more I could dig up but you/we get the point.
This is the culture of the tOSU, business as usual, If they get taken down for this I would be shocked due to the fact that doesn't OSU have the largest compliance department in college athletics? Doesn't OSU report the most secondary violations in the country? I tease my OSU friends that they have a secret office in Cbus where there are compliance people who wait by the phone for Buckeyes in need and they send out they OSU "Mystery Machine" to clean up the messes before it gets out of hand. Again this is how "they" do business in Ohio and I do not want them getting taken for the same reason BLAZEFIRE said (post#105ish).
Smoke has been billowing out of the OSU football program for a long, long time. It's just a matter of time before there's at least a slap on the wrist to come out of it.
Approaching a full day since this news broke, yet no repsonse from Tressel or the OSU AD. I know if I were wrongly accused of something, I would have an immediate response.
Maybe the vest will do his best rafael palmeiro impersonation for this one.
We didn't have an immediate response; at least nothing other than a perfunctory "We at Michigan comply with the rules." Because the Free Press never gave us enough time. They dropped their bomb on Bruce Madej on a Friday afternoon, and told Bruce that they'd like a response, but would be going to press that weekend. And, it was one week before the start of the 2009 season. Thanks, Mike Rosenberg. Thanks, Mark Snyder. Have a nice weekend and Go Blue, eh?
