The Lantern is the tOSU student newspaper. Not exactly a reliable source for unbiased information, but in this case, it does tell us how Jim Tressel is viewed by one of his most loyal fanbases. And right now, this article says that the fact that tOSU did not fire Jim Tressel sends a clear message that the state of college football in this country has begun to spiral out of control. It's a good read, and worth a click.
The NCAA shouldn't suspend Jim Tressel for more than two games. It shouldn't fine him more than $250,000 dollars. It shouldn't bar him from spring practice and summer workouts.
After it finishes its investigation, the NCAA should recommend Jim Tressel's termination as head football coach at The Ohio State University.
This incident is further proof that college athletics is spinning out of control, and a message needs to be sent to university presidents and athletic directors who let rule-breaking coaches keep their jobs because they win games and sell tickets.
