Throw Tressel under the bus.

With this news, it’s clear that Jim Tressel was a serial ignorer who lived by the Three Monkeys’ Credo.

We know nothing.

The question at this point is how Ohio State characterizes what happened with the NCAA.  Since I don’t think the school can play the “who is this Jim Tressel fella you keep referring to?” card with any success, all that’s left to it is to paint the man who Gordon Gee deferred to as a matter of routine as a rogue coach who deliberately deceived the people who desperately wanted to make sure everything was above-board, yada, yada, yada.

Will it sell?  I’m not feeling it, but you never know with the good people who work for Mark Emmert.


UPDATE:  Nice catch.

    If they wanna believe it, they’ll believe it. I’ve already seen headlines that say “Ohio State, Too Big to Fail.”

    But this very blog taught me that Emmert’s people are the “trained experts” at investigations!


  3. JG Shellnutt

    Yeah, but 5 or 6 years ago, people were worried that USC was ‘too big to fail’ as well.

    Mark May knew all of this would happen. Mark May could look at Pryor and taste his soul.

    Gordon Gee’s quote about Jim tressel calling the shots won’t help his cause any. If Tressel was rogue, it was Gee’s fault. The phrase “lack of institutional control” comes to mind.

    “the people who desperately wanted to make sure everything was above-board,” Gene Smith, Gordon Gee and Jim Delany, two of whom are untouchables as NCAA Illuminati. The third, Gene, will be given a lovely Hamiltonian parting gift.

    Read the comments section at the “this news” link. Very funny!

    Yeah, Mayor. Seems like “LeftyRules” plays by his own and with his own. He goes down as a typical Buckeye fan. No wonder folks say that the buckeye fans are in denial. Hell, they’re in fantasy.
