And you know personally that Tressel and his staff did not know he took money???? Guess it would be kind of hard to see these agents haning around outside your locker room.....the Buckeye will go down...only a matter of time until they get caught....if one took money...others took the money..........
Read the post from Kyle above. He seems to know more than both of us.

Of course he took the money, read the article, they all did it! Consider their circumstances, how they could benefit by taking the cash, and try to believe they didn't. It defies belief that they played it straight.......

If there is anything to this, I would not argue with any appropriate penalties based on the awareness level of the university or, if applicable, lack of oversight. It's pretty much impossible to keep an eye on everyone in the program, but if something like this really happened over a period of two years (I have serious doubts) someone needs to be accountable.
Oh, and we agree on one other thing: you are a supporter. Sorry, had to say it.
I also concur with the commenter who is suspicious of the timing, that was my first thought too.
Well played Random. You are at the top of your game. You know it. I know it.

Often times I do fall short in that area. Thank you for caring. They are important.
I will try my best to do better.

College players that are talented enough to garner such attention should be allowed to accept payments and fringe from agents, so long as there is no traceability between the agent and the school (ie, no incentive for the student to attend one school over others). Just my opinion. The agents and players are making a financial decision based on prospective future contracts that are independant of the school.
Interesting thought process there. However do you really think that can be reality? Especially with what happens in similar circumstances involving street agents, AAU coaches, high profile players and the pipelines between certain schools, street agents, etc., in mens basketball. The agent will be a convenient front if you will to insulate the schools from repercussions in my view. They will be the pipeline from boosters to the player. A lot of "institutional control" situations in that bag of worms.

Tim of course he took money from a agent. I did, Troy Smith did along with a lot of others. And we all know players at Youngstown State did 12 yrs ago too. Give me a call to discuss

Ask yourself the same question. Do you know personally that Tressel knew he took money? No. You need to practice what you preach. As another poster said, during the years Holmes was at OSU we already had the NCAA infractions committee crawling all over campus. Don't you think this would have came out in the wash? An agent isn't claiming that he gave Holmes money, he is claiming that Holmes said he was getting money from somebody else. See how well that holds up in court. This guy has been made out to be a completely incompetent fraud. Google his name and do a little research before you jump all over the OSU hate wagon.

Time to put the Buckeyes on some type of probation...take away all wins during this time and make them the example!!!!! Yes!~~~~~!!!!
Per the NCAA: the NCAA has stated it does not intend to investigate anything further related to the allegations in the Sports Illustrated article.

Looks like you are just another Buckeye hater. So sorry to disappoint you. Now go crawl back in your hole.
