Expect more updates on the Tressel resignation
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:
