WOW, when did this happen? With all that OSU has been through and with Tressel stepping down...this might give Michigan a chance to beat em' for once in a long time.
I wonder if they will have an OC or DC take his spot or they will go after another coach still available (Mike Leach...lol)
One of his assistants, Luke Fickel, has been named interim head coach for the season. I'm not sure what side of the ball he coaches. After the season is over I think they will try to lure in Urban Meyer.
edit: Fickell is/was co-D coordinator and he coaches the LB's
Texas gets hosed again. Meyer was looked at as a possible successor to Mack Brown after Muschamp left for Florida. Now, OSU has to be the favorite in the Meyer sweepstakes. He is from Ohio and it is just as good a job as Texas.
not the crime but the coverup
But how long is Mack going to stay at UT? He is 59 now. I can see him sticking around for another 4-5 years. Would Meyer really wait 4-5 years to coach, if that's what he wants to do? I doubt it. There will be a lot of good jobs opening up before Mack becomes the AD.
I am thinking Bryan Harsin or the Major have pretty good shots to become the next UT Head coach.
Yes, someone call Yankee and make sure he's ok.
Oh brother. Will they ever get a break?
One of the dirtiest programs in the country. Good-bye captain Buckeye.
What the hell does this have to do with ut??? They were never in the Meyer sweepstakes to begin with and there is no certainty that he will coach next year either.
Hell they are all dirty ..... If you aint cheatin you aint tryin .... or so Ive been told.
Society has no ethics whatsoever anymore.
One of his nicknames is "Senator". Kinda fitting that he'd get caught doing something bad.
About time OSU got popped. They are as dirty as they come.
As a USC fan, I have to LOL
Maybe the NCAA will drop the hammer on the Walnuts harder than the Trojans, but I am not holding my breath.
Every program does it, Mack Brown just seems to be the best at covering it up.
Not sure why you single out Mack Brown, even though you just said every program does it.
I think they will come down harder on the Buckeyes. They need to set a precedence that this is not an acceptable risk for the players, coaches, and administration.
Not defending Tressell, but the NCAA needs to drop the sham they are non profit. They are a non profit like Joel Osteen is. Of course these kids got a free tat. They own that city. All colleges do. You think every one of these guys paid full price for their sleeve? Any tattoo parlor is going to hook up a player on the team for the same reason athletes are comped here. They should be able to. Its free advertising.
lol, every big school does this stuff. Hell, even Texas A&M pays its players 'scholarship' money to suit up for games, or at the very least, they did when I was there 2003-07. Starters get more money (~$1000 per game, walk-ons (~$100 per game) get less, and the big names get cars from the local dealerships too. It comes in the form of checks that players picked up at their exclusive training facility next to the Kyle Field. I remember the QB Reggie McNeal was driving around in a BMW 5 series when I was there, so I wouldn't be surprised if the 'free cars for the stars' program is at every big school. I can't recall any players selling memorabilia for money or tattoos though.
In any case, this whole thing is getting way overblown as I don't believe there is a big football school out there that doesn't cheat like this. The NCAA has never been that hard on this kind of stuff since the SMU death sentence. They might get the same treatment as USC at worst, but even that wasn't much of a big deal.
LOL, I've wanted him out for years - he's very Kubiak-esque in his losing by playing not to lose.
People say 'you should be happy you win 10 or 11 games a year.'
Yeah, try being a good program in a down conference and then losing when it counts (FL, LSU, Texas). A trained monkey could do that. I will give him props for the wins over Oregon and Ak.
Right next to Texas, Auburn, USC, LSU, Florida, Miami, etc., etc., etc....
Us and USC just got caught.
Like I've said 100 times before the only way IMHO to deter stuff like this is for players to face NFL consequences - which will NEVER EVER happen. Otherwise, wtf do they care if their school/coach/program gets busted when they know they have a payday coming?
Paying players will not solve anything because a lot of them will want more.
Don't buy the act 'woe is me as a Div. 1 player - I can't work and can't afford my off campus housing and my $600/mos. car payment.' WTF Ray Small - what college kid who can't work and doesn't have rich parents has a $600/mos. car payment? Let me get out the world's smallest violin.
i bet he lands a job in the sec
