Sports broadcaster ESPN filed suit Monday in Ohio seeking access to e-mails involving former Ohio State football Coach Jim Tressel, documents indicated.
The broadcaster filed suit in Ohio Supreme Court against Ohio State University, claiming it wrongfully withheld e-mails and other documents written by Tressel, OSU President Gordon Gee and others related to Pennsylvania businessman Ted Sarniak, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported.
“It is impossible to imagine that Congress had any interest in restricting the flow of information about shady deals at a tattoo parlor when it passed FERPA in 1974,” ESPN attorneys claimed.

We are so little-league.
Not sure if I would take the word of a guy convicted of fraud as gospel
NCAA officials visited Miami this week to investigate allegations made by former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro, a felon who is incarcerated for his role in an elaborate $900 million Ponzi scheme. Shapiro said he gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash to Miami players and the service of prostitutes and entertainment in his million dollar homes and yachts. He also said he arranged bounties on opposing players like the University of Florida’s Tim Tebow and Florida State University’s Chris Rix.
On the other hand I don’t think any of us doubt that most schools break / bend / skirt the NCAA rules. I sure hope this doesn’t become a media storm and tarnish all college athletics.
Now that Tressel’s status has been changed from ‘resigned’ to ‘retired’ so that he keeps some benefits it’s all gotten a little cloudy on exactly what the heck is going on. When are (was) the NCAA ruling on OSU final?August 17, 2011 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #432817

So more than half way into the football season.
Plus OSU can make an appeal, dragging this out to 2012.
They need to make their decision and get on with it.
Right now the delay is hurting the players that played by the rules and casting a shadow over the 2011 football season.August 17, 2011 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #432820
The ’11 season didn’t already have a shadow?August 18, 2011 2:06 am at 2:06 am #432821

We’ll still have 82 out of a possible 85 scholarships. Shouldn’t hurt us too bad next year. Looks like we’ll still be able to play in a bowl this year too.November 11, 2011 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #432826
That’s just what was self imposed… ncaa hasn’t made their ruling. More to come and more to come and…November 19, 2011 12:47 am at 12:47 am #432827
