Mr Ellis to be revealed?

Ok. So my miserable career choices have led me to having to run this sales call right now, so I won't be able to respond to everyone berating my lack of a link. Nevertheless, that radio guy in Columbus, MyGuytheTorg is tweeting about Ellis meeting with the NCAA. Interesting, no?

Torg isn't the greatest source. He also said some Michigan players were selling autographs to a NW Ohio dealer yesterday.

That being said, it could potentially lead to some trouble for a few more OSU players if it turns out they lied to the NCAA.  I'm not sure it will affect OSU the "institution" since the summary judgement seemed to indicate OSU did all it could to educate them about the rules.

I'm burned out on this whole ordeal. I don't care if their program is crooked. We knew it before this incident happened. The character of the players, coaches, school officials and fan base is the problem. That is what enabled this whole situation to fester. Tress was fired over it, but he was just a cog in a defective machine.  The culture down there is screwed up. A coach leaving the program won't change that.

Somehow they have to recognize their ways are wrong and that just ain't going to happen.

Michigan needs to man-up and beat them down the old fashioned way. Michigan football is going to have to play better. I could give a shit about the rest of it.

Go Blue!!!

When you think of all the death threats THE Ohio State University has used to intimidate and tamper with potential witnesses, it would be great if someone actually showed up and testified against them at a hearing.  

Then, the NCAA would have no excuses left and would have to finally give them what they so richly deserve.

And when it does i will camp out in the front yard with a big ol jethro size bowl of popcorn. and watch all my Buckeye neighbors break down and fill the streets with their tears.

so take it for what it's worth, Mr. Ellis didn't testify the first time because he feared Mr. Rife.  IF that's true, I think Rife would only go after Ellis if he was revealing more ILLEGAL activity such as selling drugs.  There have been rumors about some of these players trading their stuff for drugs or maybe even working for Rife.

I think I have tosu sanction fatigue too.  Does anybody know if today's hearing will finalize anything or is there still more to this process with the current NCAA notice.  I know they can appeal but that usually doesn't go anywhere.
