Each week during the off-season we will be doing this feature that will simply be called "This Week In College Football". We will cover the biggest news and stories of the past week and give some opinions and analysis. In addition to covering the weekly happenings we also do a weekly roundtable where we discuss varying topics and we give several opinions on each topic. Let's get to what happened this week in college football
LACK OF INSTITUTIONAL CONTROL IN COLUMBUS, OHIO?
It all started last year when it was discovered that Ohio State players were trading stuff for tattoos. Then it hit the wall when it was found out that Jim Tressel had covered this fact up for nearly a year and lied about it on numerous times. Now it's about cars. Dr Saturday has a good laundry list of past issues the Buckeyes have had with cars under Jim Tressel. Now Ohio State is opening up an investigation on used-car purchases by dozens of it's players. There have been six programs that have received sanctions since 1990 due to deals that their players received on cars. We all know about the USC stuff. Ohio State players seem like they are running amok. I would be very surprised if the NCAA doesn't step in at some point and at the minimum give them what they gave USC. A couple of years with no bowls, reduced scholarships, vacating wins from 2010. Jim Tressel is asleep at the wheel folks. He's a hell of a college football coach but he's really crappy at knowing what's going on in his players lives (or he just turns a blind eye).
