Cheating Cheaters Cheat

Thank goodness Tressel quit. Otherwise, we’d have to talk about the NBA finals, LB James and a seven foot shooting guard. Instead, we can discuss how cheating cheaters cheat.

One article, the SI piece which ended up getting Tressel…um, resigned…printed out this little blurb. It’s disgusting:

According to his fellow assistant, Tressel rigged the raffle so that the elite prospects won — a potential violation of NCAA rules. Says the former colleague… “In the morning he would read the Bible with another coach. Then, in the afternoon, he would go out and cheat kids who had probably saved up money from mowing lawns to buy those raffle tickets. That’s Jim Tressel.”

Cheating cheaters cheat. Jim Tressel deserved…resigning. The fun times thing is, Ohio State homers are so myopic about their team, they still cheerlead for Tressel. Sad but true. I heard where Kirk Herbstreit actually said Tressel’s resignation was inevitable, but (words to the effect) Tressel was still a decent individual. ESPN is the national home of Ohio State homerism, even though they seem to bring the torches to the march later on.

I don’t blame OSU homers for their blatant homerism. There’s nothing good happening in Ohio anyway. It’s ok for cheating cheaters to cheat as long as they win.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
