Jim Tressel is already suspended for the first five games of the 2011 football season at his own request, and Ohio State administrators will probably suspend him for the entire season before they respond to the NCAA letter. OSU will then review Tressel's employment status after the season and the guess here is that Tressel will be fired, leaving a shameful legacy of cheating and one unearned national championship handed to the Buckeyes by the ref who made a phamtom pass interference call against Miami that allowed the Buckeyes to convert a game winning 5th down score. I frankly hope that OSU fires Tressel for "just cause" this week, which will allow the university to stop payment on his contract immediately.

The NCAA is not amused by Tressel's intentional misconduct and deceit, and does not suffer lying fools gladly. The NCAA will pile on sanctions against OSU that will be much more severe than the university's previously announced self imposed sanctions.

The Ohio State head coaching job is a career summit that will attract multiple A List candidates. Let the Urban Meyer speculation begin!
