Well, it finally happened. The NCAA is shutting down Ohio State's football program for paying players and knowingly playing ineligible athletes. The program is banned from the NCAA for at least three years. Here's ESPN's article on it:

Heard from a good source that NCAA will likely never hand out another death penalty. After they saw what it did to SMU.

If USC or Auburn didn't get the Death Penalty how int he heck can Ohio State get it? If anything, Tressel should volunteer/be forced to resign b/c IMO, him not making OSU/NCAA aware of the possible violations is 10 times worse than the violations themselves. The whole jersy thing is silly but Tressel not being forthcoming with the info looks really bad. How on earth do you not forward that to in house council? Had I been him I would instantly think "I'm being set up here" and gotten the school involved. OSU is known for self reporting ANYTHING that even remotely resembles a possible violation "my left guard got a free pen from him professor, better report it" so this getting swept under the run by Tressel is especially troubling.

OSU deserves to be punished but I'm tired of the selective enforcement that seems to be based on what ESPN and the public wants. It's popular to hate OSU so they will get hammered while nothing happens to Auburn. College sports are becoming just as big a joke as the pros.

For the record, I'm a huge OSU fan and again, they deserve punishment, but go after everyone.
