Suddenly, Jim Tress does not choose to resign as football coach at Ohio State, but this was the school's history of Memorial Day.
Sunday school, said he "sought and accepted" the resignation of Ohio's largest car in history not named Wayne Woodrow Hayes. Position of the school on a trip to the principal's office comes to NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis next month. Doomsday is very unpleasant, so that all relevant elements can be removed on the bus now.
OSU officials also said it would be a victory last year, including one in the Sugar Bowl, and impose a probationary period of two years together. Anti-trees and blackening your name clearly at the heart of the strategy to reduce penalties in the future.
Trees no longer a "piece" of defense, in violation of camouflage in the sale of souvenirs, though it was a failure in the history of the school in March at a press conference to mitigate the potentially explosive story. At school President E. Gordon Gee said he never considered shooting trees, and even if it is firing the coach. Gee must be kept locked in his office when serious problems on the table in the future, lest the desire to create a clown to come out.
Each "body work" element - the personal goodness Tress on many levels, and a message of inspiration to students and players, a patriotic gesture to the troops in the Middle East - will never be known. But the stories are real, and the hundreds, especially here in his hometown who had contact with him as proof that they have. Many personal "bookmark", trees, despite the scandal, is still to come.
Now that you are not factors. Trees is more than a rabble of OSU coach now. What is often the lock is dismissal or resignation is not surprising that the report does not survive failure - even lie - an ethical violation.
There are at least somewhat surprised by the speed with OSU officials changed their minds, however.
"The responsibility of the trees. There is no other facility staff were aware," the violations, said the official response to Ohio State for the NCAA allegations.
"The institution is embarrassed activity trees," the statement said.
People are very proud of the institution when the Tress Ten win seven major championships in the last six in a row and a national championship, however.
So proud and so willing to look the other way. There was enough space for the state of Ohio is embarrassed before. Maurice Clarett, the best player in the national championship season of 2002, the second team Tress, Troy Smith, Heisman Trophy winner in 2006, Terrell Pryor the starting quarterback for most of the past three seasons is the highest ranked players in Braid was. We have all been suspended for receiving appropriate benefits.
In March, OSU was willing to limit the death Tress cover wrist slap a game suspension and fine of $ 250,000 two. Apparently, OSU will remember the good times. In return, the fingers that once declared: "We're No. 1" incriminatingly now point to the former coach.
Despite the negative news leaking out of the scandal that cost Tress work has never been as big as a basketball program for academic fraud in Minnesota years. There was no payroll to meet, as the Day of SMU Pony Express. Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer was had complained, "I never could have made the sign of the bedroom saying," No shot, no dopin 'is not fast. "
Not covered the positive drug test, like the University of Miami coach Dennis Erickson.
Trees, however, a trimmer, as well as many successful coaches. It is a bright as a follower of awareness of the rules, got caught breaking. The answer lies in the media was toxic.
The hypocrisy of the media's favorite meat. Scapegoat, but it is clear that the food choice of Ohio State.
