Your I -- this Ohio State.
And looks like another black -- for the Buckeyes just one day after Ohio State's football coach.
Jim Tressel resigned.
Amid accusations he tried to cover up yet another -- scandal.
There's word the NCAA seriously is invest is seriously investigating the team's starting quarterback as well have you heard about this.
According to several news reports out of Columbus.
The coach there.
Terrelle -- been seen driving at least a half dozen different vehicles since he joined the team three years ago and there's -- no crime.
To -- drive a half dozen vehicles below.
A number of those vehicles reportedly still belong to the dealerships.
The NCAA wants to know who gave those cars to him and other reporting gifts.
But that's -- potentially major rules violation in college sports now keep in mind trump fires already been sitting out the first five games of this coming season.
After he admitted that he sold memorabilia in exchange for cash and improper benefits that's a rule.
That case is a big part of what led to Jim Tressel resignation he's the coach but there's an investigation revealed Jim Tressel apparently knew all about what it happened.
But never reported it to his superiors.
-- -- now David Cornwell sports attorney who represents the number of athletes and agents and sensitive legal matters -- I see you.
It's great to be with you chip either Howard I'm good I'm not I don't much care from an SEC guy not a Big Ten guy.
But I can tell you that I made a hundred dollar bet with a buddy of mine is sitting right there.
98 months ago that this man would not coach another day of the regular season for Ohio State.
Sure enough here we are we in the middle of a meltdown here -- is -- -- what what are you -- Well what we're seeing is yet -- another college football program and let's face about Ohio State is one of the most successful football programs.
That we've ever had.
In Jim Tressel is not only one of the most successful coaches but he's been widely recognized as being one of the good guys threw that football in -- -- and now -- And now because of lack of institutional control.
But by Ohio State and unfortunately.
-- And -- -- -- get -- -- -- lack of institutional control within these this context.
Is a buzz phrase.
For what happened to SMU you lose institutional control you get a second -- you can lose everything in Ohio State is not going to lose everything watching is that race.
Reports suggest that these violations of the NCAA rules.
-- pervasive and very obvious.
If a young man is going to be driving six different cars.
Trading memorabilia sports equipment which necessarily came from.
The locker room for cash or tattoos.
Then the indication is that somebody either knew or should have known what was going on.
And in fact coach Tressel has now admitted that he knew what was going on -- didn't disclose an email that told him about the trading of equipment -- memorabilia.
When he had the opportunity to tell the compliance staff at Ohio State.
And the NCA when they investigated.
So it looks like one of the good guys in sports is.
Essentially compromised his personal integrity to win football games.
He is is it your sense that that there is at some point going to come a meeting of the minds which ends and it's sort of -- you think SMU got the got to -- got a got a death penalty back in the day there's -- the thirty on thirty.
From ESPN that shows puts it all out there but.
As -- you've got slapped down and put down and that was it is there a day -- with every college football fan knows I mean if you're real fan.
You know there's stuff going on back there whether -- seeded or not whether you have personal knowledge of it or not.
You know what's happening and -- in the road to this point for from where my good friends at Ohio State.
Has been a very bumpy one and it's been telling along the way it does not appear this is news.
It it is not new.
In its pervasive throughout college sports.
And I hope that we don't stop the analysis in the discussion with the sanctions which I think are inevitable I think the discussion now needs to ship.
To a focus on the NCAA's amateurism rules hello rules are not in place.
Are not in place to protect the integrity of the competition on the field or on the court.
Those rules -- in place to protect the NCAA's economic interest they compel these young men.
To give away their services essentially for food and a place to sleep so that the NCAA can make billions of dollars.
We need to look at this and force the NCAA.
In -- more fair system and the argument that.
The NCAA insures these young men and women and education is false if we just look at the -- graduation rates.
Of these people.
Are leaving these college campuses -- that with the college degree so if you don't get your education the only thing you're getting his food in a dormitory room.
A dispute that -- affects this -- I know so many people who who bring in young men who have come from small towns where they've been pass along all their lives.
Junior high and high school they were stars and and they come.
And they come into the academic center and they help teach them they get past the obstacles that have been there there are good things that happened but you are so right.
How long you've you go to go work for free slave labor in many cases is almost like slave labor.
As these institutions make tens of millions and tens of millions and more millions and billions of dollars for the NCAA where they get -- You about right it's great to see you -- hope -- come back again.
I think I'd be happy to thank you -- David Cornwell sports attorney and knows what -- talking about.
