Expect more updates on the Tressel resignation

Published: Mon, May 30, 2011 @ 3:00 p.m.

The No. 1 story in sports – in fact in all news – right now seems to be the Jim Tressel resignation as head football coach at Ohio State University.

Most of the sports world is waiting for later tonight when the other shoe might drop in the form of a story in Sports Illustrated that may have been the catalyst for the resignation. The story is expected to be released Monday night and be on the newsstands Tuesday.

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter George Dohrmann apparently investigated Tressel's tenure at both Ohio State and Youngstown State University. Earlier today Dorhmann said on his Twitter.com account: "I'm told it is likely my SI mag story will be posted at SI.com later today/tonight. Timing of [Tressel decision] will make sense after you read it."

The Vindicator is planning extensive coverage for Tuesday's newspaper and will continue to update this story online throughout the day. Until then, here is a sampling of what others are saying:

Completely agree with you on this.

My goodness, the man (Tressel) walked the sidelines of the spring game with a camouflage (military) hat on and is always talking about his love for the troops.

Now, when he can dictate the time of his resignation, it comes out on the morning of Memorial Day. TOTALLY CLASSLESS.

If Tressel could "dictate" the time of his resignation he wouldn't have flown back from vacation last night and resigned this morning. Obviously, the other shoe is about to drop and tOSU is trying to get out in front of it.

He either "resigned" today or he was going to get fired today. Not much choice for him.

That said, this mess is largely of his own making.

Writing was on the wall back in 2004. Not to mention the 90's if the NCAA had been doing their job. Story of how the NCAA let YSU investigate itself about the Mickey Monus and Ray Isaac relationship.
