That's the exact opposite of moral integrity and goes above and beyond just playing college coaching games.Your comments are a bit inflammatory and imply an ongoing circle of lies, when in fact, we have no idea when or how often Tressel lied about this to the NCAA. This just came up in December, it is quite possible (even probable) that the only time Tressel was questioned on this by the NCAA was in Dec. He started coming clean about forwarding the email when Gene Smith stepped in and answered for him.To be honest with you, I bet that Tressel (like anyone else that has ever had a flock of immature 19 year olds) has buried a few bodies. As an NCO/SNCO in the USMC, 1/3 of my job was burying the figurative bodies for my Marines, picking up drunk under age kids in Waikiki and not saying a word because at least they called me instead of getting behind the wheel and so on. I tend to think that I did a pretty good job as a leader, but technically, I probably should have fried those devil dogs and wrote them up for drinking underage. How many times do you think TSV's 85 rockstars, surrounded by tempation on a college campus, ran a foul of the law or NCAA and it never made it to the AD or anywhere else? I would say way more than we would ever want to know.Kids make mistakes, and sometimes leaders rationalize actions, that are wrong. It doesn't make them evil, just human.
