    I'm not an Ohio State fan, but it was definitely time.

    The guy was clearly running some sketchy things behind the scenes.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    From (the other) Jim O'Brien to Tressel to even Matta recruiting some sketchy kids, the NCAA just needs to open a field office in Columbus.

    He shouldn't have been allowed to resign. His keister should have been fired when it came out that he was aware of the issues and did nothing.

    Legal issues with the firing / resigning. If they canned him, they would have owed him $$ from his contract. His quitting eliminated that.

    Oh my, it is MUCH worse than initially reported.

    O$U can kiss the postseason goodbye for the next few seasons.

    I think this is 100% justified:

    There's the direct link to the SI story.

    I met Tressel back in the beginning of 2008. I went out to Columbus with the Big 33, an organization that holds a high school all star game between Pennsylvania (where Big 33 is located) and Ohio. We had a press conference right inside of the horseshoe. Tressel spoke at it to the players selected to the Ohio roster, many were soon to be buckeyes. The whole time I was there I could just sense this arrogance from the people involved at OSU. Some were great people, like the manager of the stadium. He was a great guy. But overall there was just this feeling that they thought they were better than you.

    I definitely can see this "ignorance" that SI talks about when it comes to Tressel. I truly believe he thought he was above it all. He most certainly knew what was going on, but I don't think he ever expected it to blow up like this.

    Also, this certainly explains why Pryor chose OSU over PSU haha.

    Because IU has...

    A.) Done nothing wrong.

    B.) His coach his legal guardian.

    C.) NCAA has already been involved in phone calls regarding Parea's "benefits" and has approved them.

    Pryor's car:

    http://twitter.com/#!/mg_indy/status/75577024474906624

    Man, star QB at a huge college, probably most popular kid at that school, new cars, tattoos, and money I am sure. How nice was Pryor's life before this week?

    To be fair, that is a used 350Z, and I dunno Pryor's income level, but you can get a used 2007 350Z at a pretty reasonable price. Is it probably dirty? Yeah, but he could have at least aimed a little higher.

    Like stated earlier though, it also has rims, tint, and probably a sound system of some sort. They are still about 20k, although hypothetically it is fairly reasonable if you are going to college free.

    Still, just not a smart move.

    6 (7 now?) different cars since he's been there though?

    OSU's arrogance made Notre Dame fans look humble, I can't say I'm too upset. And you know that guy in high school that peaked at 18 as a football player and you never heard from him again? Terrell Pryor is the college version of that.
