Thank you Coach Tressel for 10 excellent years.

You have to be kidding? The dude cheated at Youngstown State and Ohio State.

If that is the case (and I do not think anyone on here is in a position to know), then he is really bad at choosing which rules to break.

Tressel destroyed any good he's done over the years with some bad decisions, and he may have taken Ohio State down with him. IMO he bailed too late to do them any good...

I am just surprised that OSU really thought they could just give him a 2 game suspension and this would all be over with. They were/are in as much denial as USC was/is.

Yeah, I agree with you. I think they felt they could soften the blow by suspending Tressel for two games, till the news came out about players getting cars from alums. I think that blew up their game plan, and they had to "fire" Tressel. Man, I think OSU is going to be feeling this for a few years. The NCAA wont implement a death penalty, but someone mentioned a "USC type punishment". I could see this.

I know one thing for sure. Arkansas never lost the Sugar Bowl. We just didn't win it.

RE: Tressel resigns as HC of OSU!
Anyone clamoring for a death penalty at OSU is an utter moron. The extent of their violations does not equal USC's violations up to this point. Plus, I don't think there is any actual evidence about the car deals. Players getting discounted deals and selling their own possessions is not exactly a coaching indiscretion. Tressel shouldn't have lied about it and he should have made the suspensions last year. But way too many internet guys are letting their own jealousy of tOSU blind them on this issue.

The coach tried to protect his players. There are worse things to do. Its not like the players committed crimes. They just sold stuff they owned. Wow, what a terrible act!! College athletes are the only people that can not legally sell things in their own possession and somehow fans have convinced themselves that this makes sense. I find it embarrassing about our society that Petrino has already been forgiven for completely bailing on the Atlanta Falcons mid-year to take Arkansas job, and Tressel is out as OSU's coach because he didn't want to rat out players. Neither act is admirable but I'd rather a coach that protects players than bails on a team to take another job when things don't work out.
