The pattern of sleaze in the football program at Ohio State is such that that the Buckeyes would have to clean up to get in the SEC. Auburn would look at the Buckeyes and say, "What's wrong with you?"
Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel announced his resignation Monday.
When I think of the investigation into benefits and breaks for Tressel's players, and the massive and failed attempt to cover it up, I think of Ohio State president Gordon Gee.
When asked about Tressel's dismissal, Gee said, "I just hope (he) doesn't dismiss me."
Even if Gee was joking, the joke fails as badly as his defense of his coach did. Gee sounds like yet another adult who is ever so excited to get close to a major college athletic program.
Tressel won't dismiss Gee, not now. I can't speak for the school's trustees.
