Read the SI article. Imagine the horror - college students trading stuff for spending money, taking part time jobs where they don't do much work, driving cars they didn't buy and don't own, and going to parties where people smoke dope. That's like, well, pretty much the experience of every single college student on a major college campus in America, isn't it?

The players broke rules and they have to answer for it. Tressel lied and broke rules and he is answering for it. That is how it should be. But for the love of God can somebody explain to me why a college football player can't get an arranged part time job or sell something they own for a tat or pizza money? Aren't those things that every 19 year-old kid in America does or tries to do?

Tresselball wasn't exactly some pleasure to experience either, let's not front.


Hoo boy

Not a pleasure? To this Cleveland/OSU sports fan, compared to what?

college kids can....football players and other NCAA athletes can't...potential for abuse, sayeth the NCAA. Athletes can't even work as much as they might like to in legit jobs. There are limits to what they can earn even in summer employment. Not sure what that number is today...not long ago it was $2000/year.

IMO, the Tat5 aren't even that great an example of the "potential for abuse" thing. The A.J. Green case is a better one. He sold a jersey to an agent....in other words, it could easily be perceived as (and probably was) just a way to funnel money from an agent to a player...illegally...and what makes it a more serious offense...with the expectation of a quid pro quo...future considerations...signing with that agent for pro representation, etc. Green got four games.

Well most would agree- except any transaction those kids take part in is seen as an opening to them getting way more value in return. Which is thought to possibly lead to a scenario in which they could be tempted to bargaining away their competitive integrity. I guess.

Ray Isaac responds and pretty much calls SI writer a no-talent, pole-smoking fraud. At least that's how I read it. And I'd agree. That article reminded of a snow storm warning you hear about on the news for a week. The kind where they want you to stock up on food and canned goods as well as batteries and emergency items because this bitch is gonna blow the roof off.

Then you shovel off the inch and a half and go on about your day.

That's what I've thought. It's about protecting the gambling money mostly.

Somehow, the NFL (and the NBA and MLB) doesn't need such rules to make sure things are "fair" on the playing field. Well, maybe not the NBA.

Which "nuggets" did you find useful? My favorite is where the accuse a player of trading merch for a pound of dope, i'd like to know who that was, I think that's important when claiming something that serious. Plus a pound of dope could cost thousands of dollars, which suggests it wouldn't be Joe Palooka.

I found next to nothing useful in that article.

My fear is something actually exists that someone not asleep or lazy will find. An actual, meaningful offense.

Nobody with half a brain found anything useful, but I've read a hell of a lot about how it exposed the "crisis" at OSU. It's unbelievable really. People, including 90% of sports journalists, don't actually CARE what it actually said.

My whole point. It had to stop or every failure to yield ticket was going to crank up the program-outta-control machine again and it eventually would grind the program down to a nub.

And no, they don't care what it said. Sharks will swallow a desk chair if ya throw enough blood in the water.

As a third party observer, fan of college football with no ties to tOSU, that SI story left me with blue balls. I was hoping from deep in the Kiffen files. Meh.

I also don't see Gruden as a college coach anywhere, but to you guys pleasure it won't ever come to that. It's going to be the interim or Meyer.

I tend to agree with Bayou. I think that OSU will try to get Meyer to take the job next Dec. If he does... well yay, they got their guy. If he doesn't want it then I think it goes to Fickell unless he is unable to keep it together this year.

Personally, I think Fickell is a rising star in the NCAA. He reminds me of Pat Fitzgerald at NW. He is super young, 37, a players coach (and disciplinarian), and is ridiculously fiery. He has already convinced Kyle Kalis to continue to honor his 2012 commitment and I think he will keep the team together this year. The job is Meyer's if he wants it, Fickell's if he doesn't.

That's an issue that not many are talking about. Fickell is huge in recruiting from all I've read. They give him the interim gig and then whack him after a year they've lost Tressel and Fickell as a result of this shit. They lose 10-12 scholarships per year and maybe you argue it doesn't matter as much. I'd tend to argue it would actually matter more.

But it definitely does matter. A lot.

If Fickell keeps it together (11+ wins, no significant disciplinary issues) this year and the Buckeyes don't get Meyer and don't retain Fickell that would imply (IMO) that OSU is trying to sever all ties with Tressel and that would imply that guys like Hazell are out of the running as well. After them, I would have to say, who would make sense?

It would have to be a guy with serious Ohio ties or major national appeal (Gruden?) or it would be a huge blunder. Ohio State's success (or failure) hinges on the school's ability to retain Ohio's best, much like Michigan's relies on poaching some of Ohio's best. That makes guys like Patterson and Peterson a real reach. I would guess that the only real candidates right now are Fickell, Meyer, Hazell, Pelini, Dantonio and maybe a couple of other guys that I cannot think of off the top of my head.

This might have been posted already, maybe not but wanted to throw it up again regardless for some grounding again to all this...

"The sources for that kind of story would be no less reliable than the ones that Sports Illustrated relied on for its underwhelming investigative report that essentially a recycled version of the same article written by ESPN almost seven years ago. They both dug for dirt and they found it. Tressel's got dirt. Send the same resources anywhere, anywhere, and you'll find something.

SI spent months calling former Ohio State players, begging them for negative information, then begging them for referrals where they might be able to get the negative information they needed to fulfill the narrative that they were trying to best illustrate. Their story included an anonymous source citing a fixed camp raffle from 30 years ago. Apparently, this cut right to the core of Tressel as a cheater willing to do anything to win. The inclusion of this reckless endangerment indicates that nothing was deemed unreportable."

Yah I posted that a few pages back, unfortunately I don't think anwhole lot of people read it, probably thinking from the first section that it was just some tressel fluff piece. It's actually a really fantastic article that puts some things into perspective, and it's hardly what anyone could reasonably call a fluff piece.

What you posted is also the most encouraging piece of circumstantial evidence to OSU not having much more dirt to be found. Not only SI but yahoo sports and wetzels team have all been digging for months and months. Nothing but some more tats for gear to be found. So far. Fingers crossed.

http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2011/06/ohio_state_football_program_wa.html

In a March 21, 2007 email to Tressel, which was provided to the Plain Dealer, a source gave the following warning about the alleged online activities of Talbott, a Columbus-based freelance photographer who also is involved in memorabilia sales:
"He has sold over 50 items with underclassmen signatures before their eligibility expires and would seem to be someone that both you and the university is aware of. I have a full report of his eBay activities if you would like to explore further or require documentation."

The email was sent to the account tressel.3@osu.edu. That is the same address that Columbus attorney Chris Cicero used to email Tressel in April of 2010 about OSU players selling memorabilia, an email that Tressel did not disclose to his bosses, an NCAA violation that eventually led to his May 30 resignation.


Despite the warning in 2007, Talbott received free tickets from an OSU player to eight Buckeye games during the 2008 season, according to school records. OSU redacted which player or players left tickets for Talbott.

/yawn, golf? We're talking about golf? Golf? Golf? We're talking about golf?

I think I need to contact OTL and tell them about the time I saw James Laurinaitis take 4 pennies out of the give a penny/take a penny jar at the 7-11 on Lane Ave. I think his bill came to 2.04, he reached into his wallet pulled out 2 singles, I noticed that he appeared to have two 20's in there (should probably investigate how he got those). He opted not to break one of his 20's and helped himself to his improper benefit.

Lots of allegations of diminishing value. I am betting that by the end of next week OTL and all the media outlets will be broadcasting stories about players that used someone else's Giant Eagle card at the grocery store to obtain a discount on hot dogs. It will probably be reported by a guy, blacked out with the robot voice over, from a prison visiting room where he the informant is doing 3-5 on some felony rap. The report will later be refuted and and reported during a single run of sports center at 4am on a wednesday night.

This shit is getting ridiculous. Terelle Pryor's car was cleared, the NCAA has left Columbus, James (the lawyer for the 9 players accused by SI as additional violators) has claimed that 8 of the 9 have already been cleared and he is working to clear the last one. Their source for the 20-40K in cash for Pryor autographs is a guy that clearly has an axe to grind and sports memorabilia dealers have already said that those numbers are ridiculous. Clearly Pryor and Talbot are connected, the reports of checks are being reported by insiders as bullshit. Did Talbot pay Pryor for autographs? Probably. Did he pay him 20-40K over a year? Doubtful. Will any of this ever be able to be proved? Nope. Is it going on elsewhere? Absolutely.

Sure, I am just another shill. I am blinded by my scarlet and grey goggles. I just can't see past my own biases, or maybe, just maybe I think we have kicked this fucking dead horse enough.

Maybe we can investigate this Clemson recruit now:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_7OC0YbG2fek/R ... ollars.jpg

or this clemson recruit
http://www.lostlettermen.com/on-campus- ... with-cash/

or maybe we can look at the thinly veiled pay for plays with street agents:
http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/new-clien ... ties-29601

Why doesn't anyone seem to care about this scandal anymore, the final answers are bullshit we all know it, but it is OK?
http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/b ... aaf-282688

How about this?
http://content.usatoday.com/communities ... l-sports/1

and of course there is McCoy's wife:
http://content.usatoday.com/communities ... cowherd-/1

No one seems to care about this, although it directly affects competition in the NCAA:
http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs/f ... ed-for-po/

My point is not to smear other schools, my point is that there is a lot of stuff going on out there, yet we still have the entire might of the sports journalism world looking into whether TP paid for an 80 round of golf, although hell, Scioto is private so even going as a guest is a minor infraction. The point remains... why is this still the only show in town?

My point is not to smear other schools, my point is that there is a lot of stuff going on out there, yet we still have the entire might of the sports journalism world looking into whether TP paid for an 80 round of golf, although hell, Scioto is private so even going as a guest is a minor infraction. The point remains... why is this still the only show in town?

Glad you are here to school me up on the "real world" on the interwebs. Why don't you school me up on whether there is an ignore user function here. Obviously you have are not interested in contributing anything constructive, so I would rather just not read your dribble.

FYI, they were never "pimping" me; I never played at tOSU.

FMB is funny because he thinks he's objective.

FMB's cool, I just think he struggles to recognize the genuine efforts that acknowledge OSU's mistakes and admittance that they deserve fair and equal punishment/treatment.

I mean really I have yet to read one take on this board that says OSU/JT are innocent and do not deserve a penalty.
