Ohio State Gets Additional NCAA Sanctions

Nearly a full year after Jim Tressel and some of his Ohio State Buckeye players were allowed to participate in the Sugar Bowl while being investigated for NCAA violations, the rest of the team will now suffer from the imperfect punishment system that currently exists in college athletics.

Yesterday afternoon, the NCAA dropped the hammer by levelingthe Buckeyes with a one-year postseason ban, limitations of scholarships and a year of probation. This punishment is added on top of Ohio State’s self-imposed punishment of vacating all victories from the 2010 season, two years of NCAA probation and cutting five scholarships for a three-year period.

All of these penalties stem from an NCAA investigation on rules violations involving multiple players receiving cash and free tattoos in exchange for signed Buckeyes memorabilia. When then-head coach Jim Tressel ignored reports of the potential violations, he seemingly turned a blind eye to the situation and failed to report the indiscretions to his superiors and the NCAA.
