I read the article about the suspension and fine of Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and came to several conclusions.
Tressel knew about or should have known about the players' involvement when he was tipped off about a pending federal investigation and came up with lame excuses.
If this had been Joe Paterno dealing with the same scenario, he would not have hesitated and alerted athletic director Tim Curley along with school president Graham Spanier.
As to Tressel's suspension by Ohio State, well I hope the NCAA will levy a heavier penalty where the suspension will be much longer.
Tressel's suspension of the players involved for five games is nothing. Considering the first four games are non-conference and the fifth game probably an easy opening conference game (Michigan State), Tressel brought this indecision upon himself.
He is focused on winning and picking the easiest poison when players would be suspended and for how many games. The strategy was a joke!
