At Ohio State, another day, another series of transgressions

At this point, maybe our biggest concern should be whether the NCAA investigators become jaded.


UPDATE:  Of course.

  1. Obviously “middle-aged men having mancrushes on their favorite athletes” is hardly a new development, but this Talbott guy takes it to a new (and even more pathetic) level. Does he have a poster of Pryor by his bed that he kisses before he goes to sleep each night?

    Loss of institutional control is becoming more and more of viable charge.


  4. Ohio State is screwed. You can’t possibly allow this guy to be around your program for this long despite numerous warnings and claim to have control over your program. He’s a douchebag that should probably make his way out of the state of Ohio for his own safety.

    I see this as worse than the USC deal. The NCAA should drop the hammer big time on tOSU.

    La Ohio st should beg for punishment to be levied ASAP. The longer it drags, the worse it’s getting.
    / expected more of this from USCw, than from Ohio. Being in LA and all.
    // hope our kids are taking notice! Please Don’t be stupid. UGA is the best pipeline to the NFL there is. Don’t trade Millions later for a few thousand now.

    E. Gordon hopes so knowing that tomorrow is always another day

    “Let no one harbor any doubt that the history of this place is enduring and sustaining. Ohio Stadium stands today as it will evermore.” – [quoth the Raven] E. Gordon Gee, Ohio State president, during yesterday’s commencement ceremony in the Horseshoe

    Read the 2004 interview with Maurice yesterday, the NCAA just refused to drop the hammer on OSU back then. I think they will kill Jim Tressel but let OSU slide. The NCAA is just too much in bed with Delany to hurt his premier program too much. We will know it has hit the fan if OSU takes yet another page from UT’s NCAA playbook and cans the AD between now and August 12.

    I’m sure the NCAA investigators are getting jaded. They’ve apparently got a low tolerance for this kind of work, which is probably why they left before the first time before the media exposed the cover-up.

    OSU’s compliance department becomes more radioactive with every passing day. Archie thought he could craft a system which passed the NCAA’s white-glove audit test with respect to procedures. In other words, it all looked fantastic on paper, and it always assumed no one would ever look any further. After Clarrett, why would they think otherwise?

    This whole debacle demonstrates the two deadliest and unforgivable sins with NCAA compliance — lazy and stupid.

    Cicero expected to take his talents to South Beach to prepare Answer to Disciplinary Complaint using LBJ’s last night losing press conference defiant statements as outline:

    “All the people that were rooting for me to fail… at the end of the day, tomorrow they have to wake up and have the same life that (they had) before they woke up today,” James said. “They got the same personal problems they had today. And I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things I want to do.”

    Wow, a 40 year old man tooling around town in an Ohio State themed van w/ a vanity plate bearing TPRYOR? I guess he was just lurking around with a sharpie & a couple of Gs. What a jock-sniffing loser. WTF was his wife thinking? I’m all for my wife staying out of my bizznazz, but if I pulled some junk like that I would expect her to at least be wielding a frying pan. That’s just creepy.

    Watching the Outside The Lines program this past weekend almost made me physically sick. What a rotten smell that has to be have been Columbus for years, many years. While no program can throw rocks and claim immunity to some occasional bad behavior, compare the totality of tOSU antics to AJ signing one freaking jersey. What did that do to us in one season compared to the dozens of obvious cheaters over the years, and look at what they were punished in 2010. And tOSU knew about most of this in 2008 with TP. I know they will not get the Death Penalty, but why even have one if tOSU doesn’t qualify?

    That jock-sniffer was known to every booster club and charitable organization in the state of Ohio? Just where did they think he came up with an unlimited supply of TP autographed
    items? tOSU makes SMU look like amateur hour. The Big ?? and their holier-than-thou commissioner can suck it. Auburn may be the only SEC team that is capable of playing on that big of a stage.

    There’s much more, but the time frame shifts for the investigation. It could be held separate from the current(?)investigation. Much more is to be discerned from the current team. Although 9 more players are involved in tatt-gate, we can’t possibly think that we have heard it all in this giant search and tooth-pullin’ contest. No one has come forward on their own and fessed up. They have waited until found out before grudgingly admitting anything. The Tattoo shop chronicles some of the players as described hasn’t played out fully yet. Think they only received money in this free-for-all atmosphere? There’s more. Lots more. Even when it’s “over” does anyone think that the scene will have been scrubbed clean? This tragedy is like a colonoscopy interruptus. Each time the investigations begin again, you have to know a lot more crap is ready to be loosened with a stronger soap solution.

      An accurate, if unpleasant, analogy. CFB has a strong stench around it these days, none stronger than tOSU campus. They deserve far more punsihment than they will ever get from the impotent NCAA. Emmert has proven to be gutless in his first year at the helm.
