That really surprises me. I've got real mixed emotions about this because even though I have been heard to say and MEAN I HATE OSU, I always thought Tressell was a good man.

I'm so torn over this. What do you all think?

Eh. :noidea:

I'm no fan of Ohio either, but it's not really shocking, and definitely not unique to OSU. This stuff (and much worse) goes on all the time at big schools. I just wonder why they chose Tressell to make an example of.

I think Ohio State will be good with or without him. One person doesnt make the whole team.

Maybe it's the fact he knew about it months before it became public and kept his mouth shut. They should have fired his lying ass sooner.:helmet:

I'm sure Tressel wasn't the only one at the university who knew about it. I bet all the higher ups, all the way up to the president, got some splainin' to do.

I have to agree with you. More people knew and kept quite about it. Too much money involved. Maybe it's time for the NCAA to admit that they should give the players some kind of allowance. :tt03:

I agree, Rick ... the players should be paid.

I need to state up front that I'm not too smart about this stuff, but here's my take ...

The NCAA is a business, plain and simple.
If you compare it to the NFL, they both make money with attendance, they both have TV contracts, they both make money off of merchandising. There really isn't that much difference. The big difference is that college players get a free education while NFL players make millions of dollars.

I'm not in favor of universities paying players because they're already giving them a free education (if they want it). But I don't see the problem in outside sources paying them.

If a booster wants to offer a top recruit a new car or a few thousand dollars to come play for their university, where's the harm? It's a business. So why shouldn't the players who bring in the money get paid?

Actually, this is already happening, so why not bring it out into the open?
