Jim Tressel has been suspended for the first two games of the Ohio St. Buckeyes 2011 football season and fined $250,000, according to a tweet by Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel. Tressel's press conference is set to begin shortly, during which we'll likely find out further details, but there's that.
That would mean Tressel, along with Terrelle Pryor and four other Buckeyes players, would miss the first two games of the season. Those games are against Akron and Toledo, so Ohio State should be fine without him, but it's still a massive public relations dent for a coach who has held a stately reputation until now.
Tressel is under fire for allegedly being aware of infractions made by Pryor and others. A report by Yahoo! Sports alleged Tressel knew of the tattoos-for-rings scandal eight months longer than he had stated.
