The NCAA upholds it’s sanctions on USC, not a real surprise. The big question, given the proof that Tressel lied to the NCAA and the abuses are far more widespread than initially reported, what will the 300 pound gorilla do to the Buckeyes.
Whatever the NCAA hands out won’t be tough enough. Of course, this is coming from an Illini.
I am having trouble discerning between what Bruce Pearl did at Tennessee (Lying about hosting recruits at his house) and Tressel did at OSU (Lying about his knowledge of his players selling or trading merchandise). I wonder how much impact the events at OSU have on the Big 10 suddenly coming out with the proposal of giving student athletes an additional stipend.
