From the world wide leader:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In a sharply worded rebuke of Ohio State's Jim Tressel, the NCAA on Monday accused the 10-year coach with withholding information and lying to keep Buckeyes players on the field who had accepted improper benefits from the owner of a tattoo parlor.
In a "notice of allegations" sent to the school, the NCAA said Monday that the violations relating to the coach are considered "potential major violations."
The thing is, didn't the NCAA already know about some of this? I mean its not like some of this didn't come out before the Sugar Bowl, yet they allowed them to play that game! I know, I know, trying to apply logic to the NCAA is silly and they work on their own time line etc.
I have to think that this could potentially spell the end of Tressell at OSU. There is no way in my mind that the NCAA simply accepts the penalties OSU has already levied. They'll want to stamp their own brand of justice on this, and as well all know it won't be pretty.
