Jim Tressel discusses Terrelle Pryor

Latest news:Ohio State Players: In December last year, five football players of state Ohio were suspended in the sale of memorabilia in exchange for cash and a free tattoo. At that time, the school insisted they did not know about the incident until the regular season ended. Nevertheless, head coach named Jim Tressel said in April 2010 that his players were selling their stuff, and apparently did nothing about it. If Tressel knew that his players committed NCAA violations and do not report to school, he may be subject to serious violations of itself and can also be dismissed from school. Furthermore, if the Buckeyes knowingly allowed those players to play, they could be force to release all 12 of his 2010 victories, including the Big 10 co-championship.
