Can Senators Wear Sweater Vests?

March 25, 2011
Tressel found himself in hot water recently after reports surfaced that he failed to investigate or report misdeeds by some of his top players. In December, the NCAA ruled that five Buckeye players, including star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, would have to sit out the first five games of the 2011 season because the players had sold Ohio State football memorabilia. At the time, the school claimed it had no prior knowledge of the infractions. But Yahoo! Sports reported earlier this month that Tressel had actually been tipped off to the sales months earlier. Tressel confirmed the report, but said he did not know who to go to about the alleged violations. Ohio State initially suspended Tressel for the first two games of the upcoming season, but after a swarm of media criticism, Tressel announced last week that he would sit out the same five games as the suspended players. Tressel has been at Ohio State for ten years. During his tenure, the team has won a national championship and on only two occasions have the Buckeyes failed to make a Bowl Championship Series game, which explains his popularity in a state where college football is king. If he ever gets sick of football and wants to give politics a whirl, he can always point to his bipartisan popularity ... but maybe only as long as the Buckeyes continue their recent dominance over Michigan. The poll of 1,384 registered voters in Ohio was conducted from March 15-21 and has a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points.
