The NCAA is investigating the Ohio State football program for issues beyond the tattoos-for-memorabilia scandal that brought down the Jim Tressel era, ESPN reported Wednesday.

Ohio State is set for a hearing Friday in Indianapolis before the NCAA Committee on Infractions over the tattoo scandal.

Not that "others are doing it, too" makes it right, but are we going to mention the University of Miami? ;)

Ohio State's violations pale in comparison if even a small percentage of Nevin Shapiro's allegations are true....

I'm not making light of what happened with the Buckeyes. They're a high-profile program, though, and there are many who love to see the mighty fall. I personally believe that Tressel is a stand-up guy who was doing what he thought was best for his players; if they washed out, they might well go down the wrong path, and, in his mind (I think), it was better for them to stay with him, where he could be be a positive influence, than the alternative. It was the lesser of two evils. If he overlooked transgressions that, in the overall scheme of things, were really rather minor--although most definitely against the rules!--and were apparently standard operating procedure in a culture of looking the other way when it came to perks (not just at OSU individually, but in high-powered college athletics in general), then he could keep these guys under his wing where they were much more likely to be successful, not only as players, but as young adults making their way in the world. I don't agree with his judgment. I think it was stupid to believe he/they wouldn't get caught. But I understand it.

The stuff at Miami, though, goes way beyond tattoos for memorabilia. I know I'm oversimplifying, but there's really no comparison between "cash, prostitutes, entertainment in his multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and nightclubs, jewelry, bounties for on-field play (including bounties for injuring opposing players), travel and, on one occasion, an abortion," and what happened at Ohio State. Again, that doesn't make what Tressel and his players did right. Nothing can do that because it just wasn't. And we can't brush off, say, shoplifting because somebody else is doing armed robbery. This all just goes to show that there's a lot of cleaning up to do in college athletics!
