08:01 AM ET 05.18 | A cloud has covered the Big Ten meetings this year, and while Ohio State's bad behavior may not have overwhelmed them, it does certainly darken the mood. Asked for the impact of the Ohio State situation on the Big Ten so far, Commissioner Jim Delany said, "A lot of interest, and I don't think it's positive." Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez was more blunt. "You need to talk to Ohio State about that," Alvarez said. "I'm not going there." ... In a year when the conference is in the process of welcoming new member Nebraska, integrating three other new football coaches and pondering issues as serious as potentially increasing scholarship aid to help athletes with living expenses, Jim Tressel wasn't in a place to serve as a face of the conference he's dominated.

It can't be true. Otherwise they would have traded the cars for tattoos.

I agree the sooner they can get past this the better for all members of the conf.

Perfect time for Tom Osborne to nuzzle up to Delaney and whisper in his ear how he's got his back etc, etc ...
