He will not be fired. If it was cooper or bruce yes, jimmy no. He wins and beats michigan every year.
IMO he will be let go in the next two months. Not fired outright, but there will be some kind of "mutually agreed resignation" with OSU where he leaves with a reduced buyout and they save some face by not having to can him. If they find out in October or November that Tressel is getting additional punishment then they would 100% fire him and their recruiting class would be in jeopardy. I think they act now rather than worry about big potential problems later.
Don't forget the only coach in OSU history more successful than Tressel also got fired for putting the school in a position where they had no other choice.
Woody punched a clemson player on national tv at the bowl game..
let's say the NCAA comes down hard on tOSU/Captain FG in August, you are then in an interim situation a couple weeks before practice starts? i think you have to have something in place before then. i'd move now if it were me. and, you pretty much have to go outside the current staff.....the days of Gary Gibbs taking over for a deposed Barry Switzer are long gone (that seems so weird in retrospect).
or: more likely, they stall it off to let Tressel coach the season somehow....this how CU does things.....bad news (like the SJMC discontinuance), put it off....put it off....always comes at the end of the Spring semester....so there's the cushion of the summer to let it disappear. tOSU gets some kind of forbearance for "more consideration" until after the season. watch, it's not impossible. the august date is deadly, it's designed to produce action or some contrition.
My guess is that tressel maintains his position this entire season, while waiting for the NCAA to pull the thumb out of their ass and then he is fired in the offseason. Osu has an entire year to groom their d coordinator into tressels replacement and maintains enough continuity that next years recruiting class isn't affected that much.
I don't hold out any hope for the NCAA to figure anything out within the year. USC appeal anyone? They said 4-6 weeks for a decision and I believe were on week 8, soon to be week 9. If they hold a hearing in august. A decision will come after osu finishes their season, tressel will be let go, osu will appeal, then by next spring we may hear how they will be given probation for 2 years. Nothing more than a slap on the wrist will come down from the all mighty NCAA which will once again prove them worthless.
that's what i think will happen....but the fall gives tOSU time enough to know whether or not Tressel is an isolatable figure or not. i doubt his lawyers are willing to take the "it was just me" angle....and i bet Jim Tressel can hire some good lawyers in Ohio. problem, as i mention above, is hiring from within if you are Ohio State which i don't think you can do if Tressel is a public liar. because that poop flows downhill, as it were.
most tOSU fans would want it....but, you can't do it and maintain any semblance of respectability as a program. but, i concede with all the TV money on the board....who cares anymore?
The NCAA is moving at warp speed (relatively speaking) on this one. I think the details of his departure are probably being hammered out now, and he'll be gone in 60 days. He has been caught red-handed lying to the NCAA and even signed his compliance statement indicating he had no knowledge of any current violations by his players. If he were to remain, the NCAA's credibility, what's left of it, would be totally shot.
Given the public black eye the NCAA has received over the last year with Cam and how stupid they really look with the Sugar Bowl, I'm thinking they are going to drop the hammer on Tressel and make it all but impossible for him to survive this. Of course that means I am giving them even a little bit of credit which is probably not wise.
never underestimate the ineptitude of the ncaa nor the power of the traveling horde of buckeyes
The NCAA probably does not think they have received a black eye of any sorts. They probably think they have done everything right.
Not so sure about that.
He has a very interesting quote in the story:
“We cannot have coaches, administrators, parents or student-athletes sitting out there deciding, ‘Is this worth the risk? If I conduct myself in this fashion, and if I get caught, it's still worth the risk.’” Emmert said. “We don't want those kind of cost-benefit analyses going on.”
In a situation as cut and dried as this one, I think it is time to put their money where their mouth is.
If I was a betting man, I'd put my $$$$$ on Tressel still being the tOSU coach in September.
If there's anything I know about Gordon Gee, it's that he puts having a winning football program very high on his list of priorities, and if there's anything I know about the NCAA, it's that Big TenElevenTwelve schools never get hit the way other conference's teams do, except for of course the SEC.
I predict OSU will have a downward spiral, it might take a couple years, but Ohio state is about to see what Michigan has gone through the past 6 years.
Yeah, but that kid had it coming, just sayin'.
I read an article about the guy Woody punched ( Charlie Bauman)
He said he it wasn't that big of a deal and wishes people would just forget about incident and not talk about it anymore.
It depends on how quickly tOSU can negotiate a deal with Urban Meyer. They'd be wise to lay this all on Tressel and dump him the minute their next coach is lined up. You better believe feelers are going out all over the place for this job.
And was already on a downward slide performance-wise. Tressel is still very successful. My bet is that they keep him (unless they can talk Urban out of retirement) -- and I say that as a Michigan fan that would love to see him go.
I'm confused. Are you a CU fan or a Michigan fan?
TG, stop logging in with alter egos!
**** Michigan, tOSU and the whole Big TenElevenTwelve Conference.
You'd think the "We're Better Than You Conference" would know how to count.
Jim Delany seems to be trying to get some separation from Tressel based on his recent comments.
That post was too long to have come from me but I am a Michigan fan.
