Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel says he’s sorry for disappointing the team’s fans.  Tressel and five Buckeye players will miss the first games of the upcoming season because the players broke NCAA rules by selling memorabilia. 

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is among those who will miss the start of the season.  Tressel is being punished for knowing about the situation, but failing to tell school officials about it.  The coach said he has received support from OSU’s administration and his team. 

The school announced linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell has been promoted to assistant head coach and will serve as OSU’s head coach during Tressel’s suspension.

    The NCAA is making money off mostly black players, and they are worried about these guys selling a few cheap items because they lack funds? What about all the money these schools make from these athletes? I say it’s time we as parents stop allowing our children to still be slaves on the sports plantation with most of them coming out of school without a degree, no future prospects, and the schools building stadiums and funding scholarships for white women, off our children’s backs…Michael Jordan has been out of school over twenty-five years ago, and he is still making money for UNC; Reggie Bush is still making money for USC, and the list goes on…When are we as a people going to wake up?
