NCAA: Jim Tressel Lied to Us

It's starting to look like I was wrong before. With this announcement, the NCAA may be pursuing the OSU tattoo scandal further. The NCAA has released a 13-page statement that Tressel knew about the scandal, didn't tell his compliance department about it, and then lied to the NCAA by signing a routine NCAA compliance form stating he didn't know of any unreported NCAA violations committed by his players. This is big and bad. Those little perfunctory forms are often the last lines of defense that make the difference between a minor infraction and a major one. Discovering that a coach lied on his form is to the NCAA's Enforcement division what blood in the water is to a pack of hungry sharks.
