Forget the Aug. 3rd letter, READ the July 13th one from the NCAA regarding Ohio State!

+

That Gene Smith? What'a guy, eh? He truly knows the NCAA and he knows how to spin his ass right out of the line of fire. The July 13, 2011 letter to tOSU DID say that no new allegations would be brought forth before their (OSU's) Aug. 12, 2011 hearing in front of the NCAA's Committee on Infractions- what he left out was the fact that Stephanie Hannah (NCAA Director of Enforcement) warned Shep Cooper- in regards to OSU, that "additional issues remained", "additional review is necessary", "investigation(s) remain open", and "additional allegations may result" from further enforcement inquiries into OSU's football program and athletic department. It even went on to say (and I quote): "violations set forth in the current set of allegations may form the partial basis for a failure to monitor of lack of institutional control when viewed in light on any additional violations". Which makes me wonder: "What DID the new August 3rd letter entail, and why MUST OSU legal counsel review it before OSU publicly discloses it?" EDIT: This is an inter-office letter from enforcement to Shep Cooper - Director of Committee on Infractions at NCAA headquarters. I'm guessing, Shep Cooper then confirmed/informed Ohio State following receipt of this letter. Again, this information regarding the investigation of OSU is moving forward with further enforcement review, despite today's Aug. 12th hearing in front of the Committee on Infractions.
