Ohio State Vacates Wins Amid Controversy

In this article…

Via USA Today:

Ohio State announced it will vacate all its football team's victories during 2010 season, including the controversial Sugar Bowl when five suspended players participated.

The punishment reported by The Columbus Dispatch is part of the school's response to NCAA charges that players received impermissible benefits in exchange for memorabilia and coach Jim Tressel lied about his knowledge of those violations.

Despite great success, including a 9-1 record against rival Michigan and a 2002 National Championship, Jim Tressel resigned as Ohio State's head coach over a month ago. With this latest development, the school continues to put the blame solely on Tressel:

The responsibility is upon Tressel. No other institutional personnel were aware of the violations, and the former coach failed in his obligation to report them, the response says. "The institution is embarrassed by the actions of Tressel.

Coach Tressel has explained his thinking at the time, but offers no excuses for his faulty judgment ... (he) has paid a terrible price for his mistake, losing his job at one of the premier programs in the country.

Star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who was heavily involved in the allegations that led to the Tressel resignation and vacated wins, has already left the team and plans on playing in NFL.
