College football teams sure are breaking the rules these days. From one day to the next there seems to be a college football program in hot water for some rules violation. This leaves the coach in a position where he is in front of the camera putting on his best poker face as he tries to give as much information as possible without saying anything.
The latest casualty of the situation is Ohio St.’s Jim Tressel. Tressel arrived in Columbus over a decade ago and immediately began a plan to take the Buckeyes to the next level and he was successful. Tressel’s plan reached it’s peak at the conclusion of the 2002 season when the Buckeyes claimed the national title after an overtime win over the Miami Hurricanes. Some nine years later, Tressel exits the program amidst the shame of rules violations and the lies that followed them.
