Jim Tressel resigns as Ohio State’s football coach
By RUSTY MILLER, AP Sports Writer


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—Jim Tressel, who guided Ohio State to its first national title in 34 years, resigned Monday amid NCAA violations from a tattoo-parlor scandal that sullied the image of one of the country’s top football programs.

“After meeting with university officials, we agreed that it is in the best interest of Ohio State that I resign as head football coach,” Tressel said in a statement released by the university. “The appreciation that (wife) Ellen and I have for the Buckeye Nation is immeasurable.”

Luke Fickell will be the coach for the 2011 season. He already had been selected to be the interim head coach while Tressel served a five-game suspension.

There really wasn't any choice but for him to resign. Tressel is a great guy, and OSU was his dream job. It's too bad it had to end this way.

I'm sure he would trade that for having a job and a clean record now. Everything he has accomplished is now tarnished.

Up until today, I thought it was all much ado about nothing. Sure, he looked the other way when a few of his players sold some stuff for tattoos. But seriously, come on!! It's THEIRS, and if they want to sell it, they should be able to. But rules are rules, even if they're BS rules, and Tressel deserved the punishment that was handed out.

Then I read the Sports Illustrated story that came out today. Jim Tressel resigns as Ohio State’s football coach 1505004552

It's easy to see how athletes would want to go to OSU when the know they are going to receive such benefits and how they get tangled up in it when they come from families that don't have a lot of money.

And Tressel just turned a blind eye to it all because he was winning football games.

I'm willing to bet this kind of stuff happens at just about every school. Tressel just got caught. Jim Tressel resigns as Ohio State’s football coach 294855916

"Not so fast" as Corso would say. Allowing this to happen to this degree over this many years on this many levels shows a ton of corruption. A coach could put an end to this by banning players and such. Maybe when you hear these athletes are being suspended for "violating team rules" it has a lot to do with not letting crap like this into their program.

Breaking the rules: College football

Cheating in college football is a tradition as old as the sport itself.
In fact, it's hard to imagine one without the other. Scandal is almost as much a part of the sport's culture as tailgating and fight songs.

But only the most common acts of deceit do not take place on actual playing fields; they go down in country clubs and living rooms, back-alleys and parking lots, or wherever else one might choose to partake in hush-hush transactions. And oftentimes, the perpetrators aren't even actual participants -- they're fans. Fans who really want to see their team win and who possess the financial means -- not to mention the ethical leniency -- to help.

College football's worst-kept secret is the age-old tradition of boosters -- often with a coach's implicit approval -- buying the services of blue-chip recruits and/or fattening star players' wallets during their stay on campus. Tales of hundred-dollar handshakes, cash-filled duffle bags and shiny new cars date back to at least the days of legendary coach Bear Bryant, whose Texas A&M teams were placed on NCAA probation in the 1950s as a result of the coach soliciting the help of a few deep-pocketed oil men in the Aggies' recruiting efforts. Corruption became so commonplace in the old Southwest Conference that at one point in the '80s seven of the nine schools had been placed on probation, most notably SMU, which received the NCAA "death penalty" (and was forced to shut its football program down for one year) for a series of booster-related scandals of which school personnel were not only aware but involved.

Though the sport is monitored much more closely today than it was in its Wild West days, most reasoned observers believe the greasing of palms occurs more frequently than ever gets reported. And new scandals emerge on a near-annual basis, causing no shortage of shock and outrage among pundits, observers and academics.

I agree that it does exist and that no university can hide from it (except BGSU, because our team is diddly-poo Jim Tressel resigns as Ohio State’s football coach 1797695198 ) but seriously, if you see a college athlete driving a brand new car, you gotta be suspecting something.

I'm not an expert on this, but I'm guessing they're pretty cautious. They might help a kid get a car, but they're not getting him a Lamborghini. If you see an 18-year-old freshman driving a Lamborghini, that would raise some suspicion to say the least. But even if suspicions are raised, who's going to say anything? Do you want to be the guy who speaks up and brings down a popular coach? You'd find yourself in the witness protection program.

Is Your College Football Coach Cheating? (Flowchart)

Whether it's Southern Cal, OSU or LSU, a head football coach or an assistant coach, bending the rules to land prized recruits is as much a part of the game as limber cheerleaders and beer funnels at tailgate parties. (And let's be honest, the NCAA rules are about as easy to understand as the fine print on your credit card application.) But if you're not sure if your alma mater is involved in cheating, we've devised this handy flowchart to help you determine if your college's ball coach is doing whatever it takes to win. Follow along carefully.
