Default Tressel gets six-game suspension from Colts

Shot off the bow to those with college related problems who jump to NFL
Quote:
On Saturday, we reported that the Colts had hired former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel without league approval, and that Commissioner Roger Goodell would take a hard look at whether, like former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, his entry to the NFL should be delayed.

And it will be delayed.

The Colts have announced that Tressel will begin working for the team in their seventh game, which means that Tressel will be suspended for six games.

“After the announcement of Coach Jim Tressel’s agreement to join the Colts as a game day consultant, questions were raised with respect to the equity of his appointment as opposed to suspensions being served this season by present and former Ohio State players,” Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said in a statement released by the team.

“Over the weekend Coach Tressel, Mr. Irsay, Coach Caldwell and I had a discussion of the issue,” Polian added. “In addition, we had a conversation with league officials to apprise them of the details of Coach Tressel’s employment and the issues we were reviewing.”

In other words, Polian has conceded that the Colts hired Tressel without letting the league office know in advance.

“At Coach Tressel’s suggestion, and with Mr. Irsay’s concurrence and support, we have decided to begin Coach Tressel’s employment effective with our seventh regular season game,” Polian said. “We have informed the league office of our decision and expect that they will be supportive of it.”

The Colts’ decision to impose the suspension on Tressel helps the league office avoid creating a crystal-clear impression that the NFL has now become an active participant in the enforcement of NCAA rules. Still, the somewhat-less-than-crystal-clear impression remains — the NFL and its teams, in deference to the curators of the league’s free farm system, will erect barriers to the commencement of employment in order to encourage compliance with NCAA rules.

With that line now crossed, the question becomes when, and if, the NFL will take action against folks whose NFL employment already has begun.

We think it’s more a question of when than if.

This is dumb. The NFL needs to stay out of the business of enforcing NCAA punishment. Goodell needs to go.

But something needs to happen. Players do whatever they want, screw their school, then run to the money. It is a huge issue.

For the NCAA, not the NFL. They are two totally different animals. The NCAA needs to fix their house and come up with something that makes sense not expect the NFL to step up and do their dirty work.

I don't see why they can't work together on this. Good move by the NFL or not, it's a step in the right direction. This crap (see Bigbull's post) has gone on a long time. The escape route needs to be closed.

Two symbiotic animals. You can't say they aren't linked. It's basically a minor leagues. One thing on the NCAA side needs to be the crazy BCS and network money. It makes people desperate to win. Desperate means cheating.

That's because they see the coaches, the grown-ups who should be setting the example, doing the exact same thing. And speaking of grown-ups who should be setting the example, what about the boosters and grown hangers on who slip players money or arrange "entertainment" or cars and whatnot? Don't leave the grown-ups out of this conversation.

Do you think Tressel would have gone to coach with the Colts had he not been fired? I doubt it... he had the job he wanted and IMO would have probably retired there (not exactly a spring-chicken)... he lost that...

I don't want the NCAA getting mixed with the NFL...
