    Technically it is true that OSU leads the big ten in recruiting violations. some of these are truly absurd. and very few are actually football.

    example...Ohio State?s men?s basketball appears on the list for failing to get a recruit and family into their hotel room by bedtime

    Wow. Secondary to say the least.

    Is there a point where an accumulation of secondary violations could result in penalties? If not, what's the point of them being violations? no deterant

    Not sneezing in to your elbow pit is a secondary violation anymore.

    If you do not self-report, then that is when the trouble happens...

    The answer is no. Remember Lane Kiffin racked up like 13 secondary violations in his first 9 months to a year at Tennessee. Like korchiki said, if you do not self report, then some issues may arise.

    Padraig Jesus loves you, the rest of us think ur an idiot.

    I remember a friend of mine telling me that he wrote to the OSU Football Office / Coach Tressel requesting an autograph picture for one of his nephews. He even provided a self addressed / stamped envelope & his nephew's first name to personalize it so that they wouldn't think he was just trying to sell memorabilia on e-bay.

    He went on to explain that his nephew was not only a huge tOSU & Coach Tressel fan (obviously), but that he was also a Freshman QB on his High School JV team with aspirations to play football at tOSU (like so many other young Ohio kids) some day.

    He received a letter back from one of the girls working in the Football Office with regrets stating that Coach Tressel often takes time responding to fan mail and autograph requests, but since my friend described his nephew as a current high school football player, sending the autographed pic would be considered a recruiting violation.


    My friend wasn't at all upset with Coach T, but pretty irritated at the rules / system getting so nit-picky that his 14 year old nephew got the shaft (by the NCAA) for being the 2nd or 3rd string QB on his JV football team in podunk Ohio.

    Oh well, I still remember losing out on what's-his-face in Basketball to the Bearcats because one of our assistant coaches bought him a Wendy's cheese burger.....but it was probably a triple, so you know. :)
