Buckeye Bull

Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated gets the Jim Tressel/Ohio State University football story perfectly. The coach and the school's reaction to the scandal is, in a word, a crock. 

Sorry, I don't buy Tressel's "Father Flanagan" act. Occam's Razor applies here: The simplest explanation is the most likely. Tressel didn't like the idea that he'd lose several of his best players -- so he tried to cover it up. And now OSU is complicit in trying to get him off the hook. Here's hoping the NCAA -- not that the organization's archaic rules didn't help create the circumstances in the first place -- doesn't fall for this.
