Douche Lord of the Week: Commenter Drew is sure to say some asinine shit in the comments today, similar to what he said after hours last night. So in anticipation of this, Drew will stay DLoW until next week/year.
I know we kind of had this yesterday, but nothing was official then. I had a nice little fake interview lined up for today but after watching that joke of a press conference/cover up, I think the Fuckeye situation should be addressed. Here goes it.
Shenanigans. Bull shit. I call fucking bull shit. What a lying piece of shit. Jim Tressel blatantly lied to NCAA investigators about what he knew regarding the situation with his players selling their memorabilia. He basically admitted as much in his press conference. He carried around this knowledge nine months before finally deciding to come clean. This shouldn't be a surprise, the Fuckeyes annually lead the Big Ten in football related violations. Why is this okay?
Dez Bryant lost almost his entire junior season and likely millions of dollars by dropping in the draft because he lied to NCAA investigators about going for a jog and having lunch with Deion Sanders. A 20 year old student-athlete college career was given the death penalty because of one meaningless lie. A.J. Green was suspended for four games for selling a bowl jersey for $1,000. Four fucking games.
Jim Tressel is a grown ass man, who has had plenty of run-ins with compliance officers and investigators in his time, who blatantly lied about knowledge of a federal investigation. "He was protecting his players"...you're an absolute fucking moron if you think Tressel's behaviors revolve around anything other than protecting his own ass. The kids are a meal ticket to him and his cronies, nothing more. He would sell them out in a heart beat if it meant saving himself, ain't that right Maurice?
But the NCAA has taken a new approach to dealing with serious violations, so there may be some hope. Judging by Bryant's punishment, Tressel should at least be fired and lose a testicle. But of course that's not what happened. He can't coach in two games against MAC schools(I guarantee a Toledo victory!) and is fined $250,000 that some boosters will pay for him. That's not a fucking punishment. That's not good enough.
The NCAA still has a chance to overrule what the Fuckeyes have imposed, but considering the NCAA and the Fuckeyes have been working together on this for some time now it is doubtful the NCAA will sway from its hypocritical ways. The NCAA is a fraud.
Jim Tressel is not an honest person. He's not somebody to look up to. He's not somebody who will have your child's best interests in mind. He's a coach who is paid to win at all costs. He's no different than the majority of major BCS coaches. Just realize this. In closing, Jim Tressel should have been swallowed.
