OSU Pays Jim Tressel $52,250, Waives Fine


It will be interesting to see what Buckeye football fans think of Ohio State University's decision to pay former head coach Jim Tressel $52,250, seemingly backtracking from their vow to have Tressel pay a $250,000 fine which stemmed from the discovery that he was aware of buckeye football players selling memorabilia and trading items for tattoos.

Last month, E. Gordon Gee, president of OSU asserted that Tressel would have no choice but to pay the $250,000 fine. It is unknown why university officials have changed their minds. OSU was bound by a requirement to respond to the allegations made formally by the NCAA.

I bet Tressel ends up with a nice paying job on the speaking circuit for OSU raising money for cancer type research events, just what I was told was offered as a potential to him.
