    WTVN reports. Is OB in trouble? I don't know, that was the implication they gave.

    If this is true...:mad1:

    I hope not. It would be really tough for us to replace OB.

    I've also seen speculation that it could be a change of assistants. Either way, I don't like it, but it could be something else so I don't want to jump to conclusions and start ripping the AD. But like I said, if it is...

    ESPN Radio & TV News is reporting the OSU Basketball Coach Jim O'Brien has been dismissed from The Ohio State University.

    Paraphrase: "Jim was involved in some type of NCAA violation regarding an improper benefit provided to a recruit who's family was in dire straights. The recruit did NOT sign with OSU"

    This is as yet unconfirmed at OSU.


    Very sad day indeed.

    No, supposedly a Serbian player who never came???

    Woody got busted once for giving money to guys who couldn't afford clothes on the team.

    Other sites are also posting that it was an overseas player. Here comes Bob Knight!

    Sounds a lot like the Rick Majerus situation to me. Rules are rules though, regardless of the circumstances.

    Well, if this is indeed true, I'll be on record as saying that Knight has my wholehearted endorsement, but I don't believe it will ever happen.

    It appears right now (obviously still mostly unconfirmed) that O'Brien is being removed.

    smitty03 brings up a fascinating point. Would OSU consider hiring Knight?

    Does anyone know where we can see the news conference? Or if it is even being shown?

    610 is carrying it on the radio. I'd bet Channel 10 will show it as well...they broke into the soap opera or Montel or whatever with the rumors.
