As we dive further into George Dohrmann's Sports Illustrated article on Jim Tressel and the state of Ohio State football, plenty of new allegations emerge.
- The memorabilia-for-tattoos violations started occurring all the way back in 2002, Tressel's second season at OSU.
- Former Buckeye defensive end Robert Rose claims that he and "at least 20 others" on the Ohio State team traded memorabilia for tattoos.
- SI uncovered allegations that some players traded memorabilia for marijuana. As a coach at Youngstown State in 1988, Tressel contacted a school trustee in regards to arranging a job for one of his players. That player also received a car from the trustee's company.
- During an event in which Ohio State was hosting recruits, assistant coach Tressel rigged a raffle to ensure that the highly-prized recruits won prizes "such as cleats and a jersey."
Of course the article also gets in-depth about the more well-known claims, such as the recent tattoo allegations. While some of the allegations might be described as nitpicky or not a big deal on their own, it's the massive history of alleged incidents and violations that will forever change the way the college football world views Jim Tressel.
