    Ohio State vacates 2010 football wins


    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—Ohio State’s 2010 Big Ten championship, its 12-1 season, its victories over rival Michigan and in the Sugar Bowl—all gone. Coach Jim Tressel is out and so is star quarterback Terrelle Pryor.


    Left behind: two years of self-imposed probation.

    I realize they are doing so to head off the NCAA from imposing harsher punishment, but in doing so, there is nothing to say it would be. There was no hearing yet, so all we know, the NCAA could have slapped a fine and punished the offending players.

    For what?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    yep, and cash. They traded autographs for cash and tattoos.

    Am I mistaken to think pro-ball players do this? Maybe not the tattoos per-say, but charge for autographs?

    not to mention that Tressell lied about everything and covered it up

    Ahhh, yeah. Didn't something else like this happen before recently? Florida I think, players used their "prestige" for personal gain.

    But it is ok if you go to school in the SEC, especially Auburn.

    Yea, Channing Crowder was accused of selling his jerseys when he played at the University of Florida. I don't think any thing ever came of it.

    Like I said, punish those who did it, but some thing like selling your autograph or a personal item is not the same as agreeing to throw a game for cash. So taking away their wins is too much.

    I never saw what the big deal is in all this college sports crap anyway.

    As far as football and basketball are concerned, college is just state and tax payer funding of the NFL and NBA training grounds. We pay the tab while the pros get to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    I say get rid of the sports scholarships and let the NFL and NBA support the whole shooting match since they are the benefactors anyways.
