THIS WEEK IN THE HARDEST OUT: JIM TRESSEL AKA MR. STOP SNITCHING

Certain recent developments probably rendered this a foregone conclusion, but just in case there was any doubt: The NCAA has officially upheld its original decision to suspend five Ohio State players — four of them senior offensive starters expected to form the core of another Big Ten and BCS championship run — for the first five games of the 2011 season forselling jerseys, rings and other tokens of Buckeye pride to a local tattoo parlor.

That much we expected. This, we didn’t: Coach Jim Tressel has decided to join them for the duration. The Senator has “voluntarily” extended his university-imposed suspension from two games to five games in atonement for sitting on information about potential violations for some eight months before the tattoo parlor case came to the university and NCAA’s attention last December, then remained silent for another month still.
