Jim Tressel Investigation Quote Of The Day

If you're not already incensed about how this whole Jim Tressel investigation is being handled by the university and the Big Ten, take a gander at Bruce Feldman's latest Insider blog entry.

Look at the hypocrisy of it: Dez Bryant is found to have lied to the NCAA and loses his eligibility for the rest of his career. A.J. Green sells his jersey and gets four games.
