Jim Tressel Likes Those Odds

Wagering is fun. For instance, take the odds on a coach surviving the scandal of breaking NCAA bylaw 10.1, which states that coaches and staff must be "truthful and forthcoming" with the NCAA regarding investigations of wrongdoing at schools. They happen to be slightly better than picking the winner of the Kentucky Derby correctly (1/20), since one out of twelve coaches who violated 10.1 made it through without losing their job.

So to further clarify the numbers, they're good if you consider horse racing a sound investment with decent returns, and not so good if you have sense. Tressel's job is likely still safe given his otherwise sterling reputation within the Ohio State community, but If you'd care to make that bet, former OSU quarterback Art Schlichter will totally back your wager, and just hold your money over here for safe keeping. What? He's good for it, man. Don't look at me like that.
