Tressel Resigns From Ohio State

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Monday morning was not much of a holiday for national football media as news came out that Jim Tressel resigned as head coach of The Ohio State University. Luke Fickell will serve as the head coach for 2011-12 and a new head permanent head coach will be in place for the 2012 season.

"In consultation with the senior leadership of the Board of Trustees, I have been actively reviewing matters attendant to our football program, and I have accepted Coach Tressel's resignation," said Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee. "The University's enduring public purposes and its tradition of excellence continue to guide our actions."

The Buckeyes are in the middle of a NCAA investigation that stemmed from the illegal trade of merchandise for discounted tattoos that resulted in several suspensions including a five game one for Tressel himself. The depth of the investigation has deepened with car sales getting a watchful eye from the NCAA as well.

Monday morning proved to be the end of the era when Tressel decided to call it a career with the Buckeyes.

Well, well, well. Look who has the dirtiest program in the nation. I'm actually surprised he stepped down this fast. This asshole is so fucking smug, I really thought he would take this to court. Really make a huge deal about it. Probably cry in front of the camera and blame the media. "Just don't take it out on the kids", he'd plead. But, no. He actually did what a real man would and accepted responsibility for his actions. Very uncharacteristic, Jim.

And excuse me, Thad Matta, is there anything you'd like to say before your entire athletic department is investigated? Any particular reason you've been getting the top players in the nation every year, and they only stay a year or two before they bounce for the pros? I believe I brought this to light back in mid February...hmmm. I digress. I just love watching this whole program implode.
