    Michigan football fans are getting erections right now:

    http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=ap-ohiost-tresseltrouble

    As a Buckeye fan, I'm sad.

    As a fan of hypocritcal behavior, I'm laughing:

    Apparantly, God wanted the Buckeyes to win so bad he was willing to look past Tressel's cheating (alledgedly). It's funny how that works.

    I sincerely doubt he's going to get much more than a slap on the wrist. No one in Columbus wants to see him go. What's the NCAA gonna do, make him sit a game?

    Nope. OSU will make him sit 2 games.

    I'm kind of speechless on this. Tressel is a God in Columbus, and has been a blessing since they fired Cooper. I was hoping for a small punishment (as a fan), but he's damn lucky to get away with just 2 games.

    Part of me did want OSU to fire Tressel. I know he wins, but every win from here on out is going to be scrutinized and tainted. As long as he's the coach, OSU will be known as a cheating program.

    Fuck him for not coming forward ASAK.

    I wonder what sanctions (if any) the NCAA will place on Tressel. I highly doubt they will be stringent at all considering how lightly they treated Terrelle Pryor et al for the Sugar Bowl.

    Given the OSU suspension, an NCAA suspension is quite unlikely. These sorts of things are almost entirely preventative from the university's perspective, and you can bet that they've been talking to people at the NCAA this whole time. The aim to punish him harshly enough that the NCAA is satisfied, but no more.

    I watch very little NCAA football, but I found this headline on ESPN interesting. Shit may soon be getting real, and I hope it does. Fuck the BCS, forrealz.

    Feds to NCAA: Why no playoffs?

    Ding dong....Ohio State football is dead.

    With the Sports Illustrated article emerging tomorrow that will, in all likelihood, make it seem like Pete Carroll was running the show at OSU...The Bucks are screwed. I'm guessing that they get the USC treatment, with a bowl ban of two years minimum. I'm hoping they get sanctioned into the Stone Age.

    I couldn't be happier. Fuck Ohio State if they cheated in any way to run the Big Ten for a decade. After they spent three years laughing at us over Rich Rod, no less....

    Goddammit, now what am I going to do with all these sweater vests on Saturdays? Hm.

    Hate to see a good coach like that get the axe, but if he's going to continually tarnish the reputations of both the school and program, then fuck 'em.

    Although it's easy to say things like that when (and please god, don't let this be a coincidence) Urban Meyer has recently bought a house in New Albany (a Columbus suburb). Come on, 2012-13!

    As much as I'd like to hit Tebow in the face with a shovel, Meyer is just about the only available guy out there competent enough to run Ohio State. This should be an interesting year, to say the least.

    Meyer. Will. Not. Return. To. Coaching. He is an attention whore of the highest order, but his life was literally endangered by being a head coach (stress + ulcers or some shit). He's done.

    It's times like this that I really wish I was friends with more Ohio State fans.

    They damn well better get the same treatment as USC. If not the NCAA will show just how much of an inconsistent, useless organization it really is.

    I would really love to see the NFL and NCAA work together and just say that you must be an amateur to enter the draft. These idiots might be a little less willing to get free tattoos if it meant risking their big payday.

    People saying that they should be paying these kids a stipend are morons. People are still going to be offering these kids more money on top of whatever pittance the school gives them. We'd just be talking about Terrell Pryor having a stipend and 6 cars instead of just the cars.

    I don't really blame Tressel for covering it up. As soon as he learned about it, he was fucked either way.

    Holy shit.

    As if anybody needed a reason to hate Miami. This seems to be just as bad as USC got spanked for, if not worse.

    I'll be shocked if Miami escapes this without the "death penalty".

    The Miami story is some SMU shit right there. It seems likely the 'Canes will get the death penalty for a season or two. Even if that doesn't happen, I still see it taking around a decade for them to return to some kind of relevance. They're going to lose scholarships and be actively avoided by quality coaches and recruits for quite some time.

    Also, kudos to Yahoo! sports for a great article. That was some great, thorough sports journalism.
