They took away Dez Bryants college career for not "being forthcoming"


The NCAA has no choice, they have to suspend both Bruce Pearl and Jim Tressell for an entire year.

If they do not they may as well separate athletics from the Universities and make them Minor League Franchises.


They have plenty of choices. They do not answer to you or I.

They did nothing to "Scam" Newton, Frankie. Remember that? Andd it was obvious something should have been done.

I think they will give Tressel a 5 game suspension. That is what the players got and I think this is more than a "fair" punishment.

BRING THE PAIN!!!

PS: Thanks for not forfeiting. Hate when you do that.


Dez Bryant, Bruce Pearl, and Tressel are all charged with the same Crime.

There is no way the NCAA can save face with their rules and penalties if they indicate that its less offensive for a Coach to do it than a player.

That is the end of the argument. That can not be refuted.

An entire year? I see where you are coming from but has there ever been an NCAA coach that got suspended for an entire year and then returned to that school? As a life long BuckeyeFan I'm DISGUSTED with Coach Tressel's cover-up. All his yapping about good character has been destroyed. And to tell you the truth I'm at a loss as to way OSU is keeping Coach Tressel. Maybe the university knows some info that hasn't been made public yet?

Impressive 1st argument, Frank.

I think coaches should be held liable for their violations. It's not fair to see a program get waxed while the coach who was responsible for the violation just moves on and goes to another program. Calipari had two programs forfeit their FF seasons and placed on probation and look at where he is now. Making bank in Kentucky.

No chance they suspend Tressel for a year. But they will do something serious to emphasize just how absurd Ohio State's reaction really was. 2 games (against Akron and Toledo) and $250K (which is pocket change for Tressel, and which the university is going to spend to cover the cost of their internal investigation). My guess is he gets 5 games and the program loses some wins and scholarships.

Ohio State has made clear that there is literally nothing -- other than perhaps losing -- that could get Tressel fired.

bottom line is this, there has probably never been a starter at a D1 school who hasnt recieved something or done something against an NCAA rule, the point is today busting them is big news and thes online news outlets employee ex FBI agents and stuff, everyone they want to bust will be busted, so youve already set a precedent on how you punish lying in the Dez Bryant case, if you say were gonna hold a coach to a lower standard than a 19 year old athlete then you have to separate them from higher education

Very true. That's why it is best to keep a clean image, if the NCAA investigated every program, they would surely find some kind of violation. Don't draw attention to yourself or your program. Just look at what tweet tweet did to UNC's football program.

I couldn't have said it any better Frank.

Thanks alot Jim Tressel. No longer can the Big 10..11..12 whatever the heck they want to call themselves claim moral supremacy over the SECheats. Guess they're all in the same boat. I'll root for the Ivy league!

We are doing this PCH-style?
