So now it all comes out. Here we thought this thing with Jim Tressel not following the rules was a new thing… not! As it turns out in 2005-06 he was given the rating of “unacceptable” when it came to self-reporting rules violations in a timely manner.
But wait there’s more… he was issued a letter of reprimand less than six months into his tenure for giving a Buckeyes jersey to a recruit, a violation of NCAA bylaws and warned that he and his staff needed to do a better job of monitoring the cars the Buckeyes players were driving. Smh! [via]
