    Ohio State coach on borrowed time

    The NCAA sent a Notice of Allegations to the school last Friday, less than seven weeks since Ohio State self-reported Tressel's violation on March 8, virtually warp-speed for the governing body. As expected, the NCAA accused Tressel of ethical misconduct for failing to inform OSU officials of an e-mail tip he received that at least two of his current players were selling memorabilia to a local tattoo parlor owner and stated that Tressel "knowingly provided false information to the NCAA" by signing a compliance form last September stating he knew of no potential violations by his players. The letter also cites the school for using ineligible players last season.
    The penalty for the latter is easy to predict: Ohio State will have to vacate its 11 regular-season wins from 2010 and presumably its Big Ten title. It should be off the hook for the Sugar Bowl because the NCAA reinstatement staff specifically cleared the players for that game (though the NCAA might contend it did so after being provided with false information).
    As for Tressel, Ohio State will appear before the Committee on Infractions on Aug. 12 and make its case for why its self-imposed five-game suspension and $250,000 fine constitute sufficient punishment for the coach. However, past precedent for Bylaw 10.1 violations suggest the odds of Tressel keeping his job are slim.

    It doesn't get much worse than having the head coach being involved in the cover-up. The Sugar Bowl victory should be forfeited along with the other 11 games since they broke the rules to get there in the first place.

    If Ohio St. is deemed with the "lack of institutional control" tag for this (which they should), I guarantee you the Buckeyes will have a whole new understanding on just what "full compliance" means when this is over with...

    ..and it couldn't happen to a better bunch..... unless it's Awbarn.

    Former Ohio St. WR Ray Small admits to selling championship rings for cash...

    Bottom line... the NCAA has to quit turning the other way and pop OSU with lack of institutional control... which will prompt OSU to fire Jim Tressel.
