I do agree that Tressel was wrong to cover this up and agree that he should probably be suspended for the same amount of time as the players. Why wouldn't he turn this over to his AD? Bad judgement IMO.
Every fan of the other 11 SEC schools does want something to happen to Cam Newton and Auburn.

You mean when Ohio State cut Clarett from the team?

A lot of programs have had players who've turned out to be dirtbags. The players who sold their memorabilia were idiots for doing so, but let's not forget that they got chump change for them and then reportedly turned the money over to their families. They got busted for selling their personal property.

Tressel's actions/inaction are pretty inexcusable, and I have no problem with the NCAA coming down hard on him personally. But it's pretty idiodic they way the haters are trying to equate this situation with, for example, what went on at USC and use terms like "death penalty." Get real.
