Jim Tressel Allegations Reported Three Hours After Ohio State Was Asked For Comment

The Jim Tressel report by Yahoo! Sports, which alleged the Ohio St. Buckeyes coach was aware of the infractions committed by Terrelle Pryor and others for far longer than claimed, was posted three hours after the university was approached for comment, according to co-author Charles Robinson.

Some had asserted Ohio State had only 30 minutes to comment before the article went live.

Along The Olentangy, SB Nation's Ohio State community, is preparing for the worst, but finds cause to question the report. The story's citation of a single, unnamed source and a lack of "paper trail" are giving Buckeyes fans hope that there's nothing going on in Columbus.

At issue is whether Tressel knew earlier than claimed about five of his players, including Terrelle Pryor, exchanging Big Ten title memorabilia for improper benefits. There's a difference of about eight months between the date claimed by Ohio State and the date reported by Yahoo! Sports.
