    Someone mentioned to me that Tressell did not run a clean program at Youngstown State. I hadn't heard what might have some up recently about his time there. Can anyone give me any insight about this and what might be circulating about his time at Youngstown State?

    Well this should be in the ESPN forum, seeing as there is one already about this there..

    Basically what happened was one of his QBs in 1991(I believe) was given about $10k from a booster. Tressel was kept in the dark about it, he did NOT know about it. Ray Isaacs(the QB) said that he always kept it from Tressel because he did not want Tressel to suffer because of it.

    The booster was an employee of sorts of the universities, and that's why Isaacs was able to meet him.

    The media has not done their research and has jumped to conclusions other than the facts. ESPN and "The Lantern" are both included in the groups that have not done their research regarding this matter, assuming Tressel is dirty.

    BTW: This did not just come up recently. There was an NCAA investigation at the time regarding this. ESPN claims that the NCAA just took Tressel and the AD's word that nothing was happening and they didn't investigate themselves. Nothing was ever found at the time to be wrong.

    How about having your lazy ass use the fucking search function? There's only about five threads right now concerning JT's past at YSU.

    Tressel is guilty of one thing. Recruiting MoC. JT should have heard the alarm bells when it came to MoC. Im sure that his character flaws were very present all through high school, I doubt he turned into a scUM bag gang banger over night. That is all Tressel is guilty of. Hopefully he has learned from his mistakes.
