For those interested, take a look at Jason Whitlock's recent article re: Jim Tressel. This is as close to a defense of what Tressel did as I have seen, and it is laughable. Basically, JT didn't "really" do anything wrong - it is all the NCAA's fault for basically having rules, and so what that JT lied to the NCAA.
For those who are not familiar with his writing, he is a typical media blowhard, who likes to take strong positions and hear himelf speak (on paper). He did write a great piece on Hoke being the right guy for Michigan a few days before Hoke was hired, but that was just about the only good thing that he has ever written.
EDIT: The "Whitcock" reference was an honest to goodness typo - freudian, perhaps, but still a typo. I never do the 12-year-old MLive thing, so my apologies.
