You can scold Ohio State fans for misplaced priorities but the reality is few fan bases would have reacted any differently. Tressel is still remembered for his soft-spoken nature, motivational speeches and winning ways. Many Buckeye fans believe the case was overblown.

And just about everywhere the NCAA suffers from a lack of credibility. Its rulebook is almost universally mocked. Even the most blatant violators believe they are victims. It’s just how it works.

So there on a day when Ohio State’s season was ending two games before it should, and one of those fleeting chances to play for a national championship was lost, the man most responsible for the sanctions was cheered by fans.

It makes no sense … except it does. [x]

    Jim Tressel deserves no hate from anyone inside or outside of Buckeye Nation. This is a man who came in on the promise...

    His humble smile… he looks truly gracious for the appreciation, and honestly… I’m so over him being judged for one...
