    well we don't know how many any other schools have had to compare this with do we? we do know that it happens all the time and usually teams self-report about 5 or 6 secondary violations at one time. Usually it's something silly like the newsletter being printed on the wrong type of paper, or a coach calling a recruit too many times in a certain time frame, or a recruit getting a ride across campus. I would be surprised if the list of schools with most violations reported were all other big schools who run relatively clean ships.

      the bottom line for me... as an Ohio State fan, you can no longer say that Jim Tressel is not a liar and a cheater and that sucks

        the whole thing stinks from him getting caught up in the mess with these kids trading gear for memorabilia to the players doing that themselves. he said he thought he was doing the right thing when he did it but in the end it ended up sour and he made a mistake. best intentions or not the stain is on the record, but even the most honest guys get heat sometimes. Tressel is still one of the best role models in college sports and a model for how to run a program and it's not like we're one of those southern schools where "if you ain't cheatin', you ain't trying" is the M.O.

          Tressel is toast. Done. I just wish that they could give the harsh penalty to Gordon Gee instead, I hate that guy.

            some people (mostly on the radio in Ohio it seems) are acting like this is SMU all over again. People need to realize that Tressel got emails in April from a lawyer who requested confidentiality and the emails did pertain to a federal drug investigation (with the tattoo parlor guy I believe) and there was confusion about what and who to keep confidential about these emails. It's not like he knew and kept it under wraps so his kids could just go on breaking the rules. It even said in the email replies that Tressel was hammering his kids into staying away from the tattoo parlors and whatnot. Lots of left out details with these bafoons on talk radio criticizing the guy. In hindsight he should've went to a school legal council instead of sitting on the information for so long.

              Jim Tressell and Jim Delany will do whatever it takes just to compete with the SEC on the field. All the SEC bashing that goes on in here from the butthurt Big-Ten fudpuckers get to have their noses rubbed in this like you rub a puppy's nose in his own ****....

              Instead of legends and leaders it should've been sweaters and cheaters...

              Keep turning your noses up at the SEC and thumping your little bird chests as if you're some example Big-Ten fans.... while we keep beating your brains out on the field. Football season can't get here soon enough :^)

                Unlike the SEC, Big 10 teams don't try to take credit for each other's wins and they damn sure don't get lumped in with each other. If you want to piss off Ohio State, go piss off Ohio State. It's not a one for all, all for one ******** like in the South. It's every school for themselves. **** Ohio State and everything they stand for. I'm glad those clowns got this. Don't ******* lump other schools in with them.

                If you want to troll, do it elsewhere.

                  the SEC gets lumped together because usually what we're talking about regarding the SEC usually applies to all their schools except maybe Vanderbilt. The SEC fans have some kind of complex where they think if one of their teams does something that all of the teams did it. Like when Alabama fans said they were rooting for Auburn to win the NC, that's messed up.

                  I don't want to hear any SEC fans say a word about some ticky tack thing like what Tressel and the Tatt-5 got busted for when there is all this evidence that SEC schools were trying to get Cam Newton in that play for pay ****, yet they are all sanction free. Youve lost all the criticize the Big Ten ethics privileges right there.

                    I read nothing but SEC bashing on this site by all of you Big-Ten fans. One thing I can promise you Sniper, I'll be right here to give it all back at every opportunity.

                    Dont like it? Eat a dick...

                      Tressel talked to and emailed other people about what the lawyer told him so the confidentiality thing is BS.

                      attorney-client privilege usually works in the other direction, not to mention compliance departments happily welcome anonymous tips. He also worried about infringing on the criminal investigation. That part's more plausible, up until the point where the investigation was broadcast to the world once Ohio State suspended the five players
                      Btw
                      law enforcement officials notified Ohio State in December that the memorabilia was found at the tattoo parlor, Tressel still declined to inform his employer that someone e-mailed him about it eight months earlier. In fact, Tressel didn't fess up until the university uncovered the e-mails in mid-January.

                        Wrong.. SEC fans realize that their teams are more battle tested from banging heads with each other for 12 weeks when it comes time to go up against other conferences in post season play...

                        It's not as if teams like LSU are intentionally trying to make Missisippi St. a better football team, or make them a tougher opponent for Michigan by trying to beat the **** out of 'em for 4 quarters... but it is the reality.

                        The SEC takes pride in the fact that teams from inside our own conference are the best competition we face. Ask that lunatic who killed the trees at Toomers Corner if he was rooting for Auburn to win the national championship..

                        Everybody is sanction free regarding Cam Newton because there is no PROOF that any money even changed hands, and Mike Slive found a loophole in the SEC bylaws about shopping a recruit to schools, and cut a deal to keep him eligible. Newton saying he "didn't know" Cecil was shopping him is the only reason he was able to play. Nobody in the SEC buys any of that ****...

                        Lastly, it's the Big-Ten fans that seem to think they have the ethical superiority complex... and I love every time it blows up in their face... LOVE IT!

                          As an OSU fan, I honestly do not give a damn about this. It simply doesn't bother me at all. I don't care that these kids got free tattoos, I don't care that they sold gear, and I don't care that Tressel knew.

                          The only violations that bother me are things that effect play on the field. I don't care that Newton got paid and I don't care that Bush's parents got a damn house. Really the only thing that could get me riled up would be something like steriods because it give players an on field advantage.

                          The suspensions suck cause next season is pretty much ruined, but the violations don't bother me at all.

                            Way to go NCAA, completely gutless move. Hope the buckeyes get hammered in the 5 games the athletes are suspended.
                            Sam Bradford will be a bust- 2/24/2010

                              Thats not the NCAAs suspension, its Ohio States. I think its very likely the NCAA will add to the suspension.

                                In that case i wish i could bet money on a weak suspension.
