Ivan Maisel of ESPN.com on Jim Tressel’s five game suspension:
But Tressel? He won’t assign himself to coach the Ohio State scout team. He won’t be pushed to the side for the people who will coach on Saturday. Tressel will participate in the game plan. He will participate in the preparation of the Buckeyes. He will do what he is paid very handsomely to do.
Makes sense. Especially in college where there are more teams and players change more from year to year the preparation is probably much more important than the game day activities, especially early in the season. I personally think Tressel will still get a stiffer punishment from the NCAA.
