ESPN Suing Ohio State Over Ted Sarniak Emails

Hey, why not! The Worldwide Leader is doing what the NCAA apparently can't, and has filed paperwork to take the Ohio St. Buckeyes to court in an effort to learn more about Ted Sarniak and other entities. That's either Terrelle Pryor's handler or mentor Ted Sarniak to you, depending on who's telling the story.

ESPN was slow to rouse on this story, waiting after several other outlets had pored through Jim Tressel's shameful emails to even note the existence of a scandal. If they're spearheading a new effort to get to the bottom of the story, Ohio State's troubles could only be beginning.

Plus, the worst the NCAA is going to do is take away scholarships and forbid Ohio State from playing bowl games. ESPN can do more damage to the program's bottom line than the NCAA ever could. Might be wise to give them what they want and just start wincing.
