Given the recent findings of the NCAA should Tressel be allowed to remain as head coach of the Buckeyes or should he be fired?Should it be the NCAA who has the final say or the University?

There aren't any "new" findings, Ohio State knew the letter was coming. The only people that want to make a big deal about something that the school and athletic dept was already prepared for is the media.

Should Tressel stay or go?



Idk. Should the NCAA stay or go?

Should the College Pres and AD go along with Tressel?

April 28, 2011  09:06 AM ET

I think you give him a pay raise and extend his contract and fire the NCAA!

I think all College Pres and AD should go along with Tressel and fire the NCAA!

Keep the money from the NCAA and start up another group CAA!

You know it is funny how the Big 10 has been silent on this issue!

Why would the Texas, OK, MO, KS, and Iowa schools care about this?

I don't think the NCAA can actually fire a coach. What they can do is umm, hint that the sanctions for the school will be less severe if the coach is gone.

The hints come via the allegations. The NCAA didn't accuse tOSU of the dreaded failure to monitor or lack of institutional control. So my guess is that the NCAA isn't after Tressel's scalp in this.

I think the sanctions from the NCAA will probably be the current penalties that tOSU has already given itself, plus a one year bowl ban (due to tOSU knowingly playing ineligible players in the Sugar Bowl). Firing Tressel probably won't change that.

If the alumni and former players are behind Tressel, he should stay.

What the NCAA can do is break out the "show cause". If Jim Tressel is tagged with a "show cause" infraction??, he will be forced to be terminated or OSU will suffer further punishment??.

A show-cause order is the harshest penalty the NCAA can impose against a coach. It requires any school that wants to employ the coach to petition the NCAA Committee on Infractions for permission to hire them until the duration of the penalty expires. Also, if I'm not mistaken, a coach who has a show cause is not allowed to recruit. That basically ends a career.

Rx, my brother, after expending so much phychic and emotional energy on this subject, I reckon you know how I feel about the Vest. To borrow an idiom from the computer world, Jim Tressel entered a FATAL ERROR into his code from which there is no recovery but termination.The honorable course of action for Coach Tressel would be to hold a press conference, admit his wrongdoing, apologize to and ask forgiveness of BuckeyeNation, and announce his formal resignation. NOW.

Harley, I have a buddy who is "in the program". I will admit he has told me about things several weeks before they become public, so he at least seemingly knows someone who has insider knowledge. He told me the latest from the NCAA was GOOD NEWS. He said the people inside Woody Hayes Facility were happy the NCAA said no new information/facts have come to light during the investigation, and they (tOSU) feel the punishment against JT is acceptable (it was explained that the allegations are similar to Jim Calhoun and his 3 game suspension than to Bruce Pearl and his termination). Jim Tressel is not going to resign, and its unlikely tOSU is going to fire him (at least according to my buddy).

Officially they kept their conference names. Big 10 is still the Big 10 and Big XII is still the Big Xii...from what I have heard

Yep, I'm getting that too.
