The reason Tressel wasn't fired is because the athletic director and University President, are just as culpable in all this as Jim Tressel is. Anyone that thinks these higher ups were oblivious to all that's been going on a OSU over the past decade, and that Jim Tressel stood there and told lie after lie after lie to the NCAA and acted alone in this scandal is simply naive.
Their jobs are subject to be next..
The BOT's decided to act, which is why Jim Tressel resigned. I guarantee that a booster was fixing to cut off Ohio St., which forced the Board of Trustees to take action. They can't fire Tressel, only the athletic director can do that, but they can force him to resign.
