The NCAA has told Ohio State that it wonâ€™t face the most severe charges possible in the memorabilia-for-cash and tattoos scandal that cost football coach Jim Tressel his job.
Investigators said they found no evidence that Ohio State failed to properly monitor its football program or any evidence of a lack of institutional control, according to a letter sent to the university and released Friday.
NCAA investigators also said they have not found any new violations.
GARDNER, Kan. (AP) â€” High school football coaches are always eager for fall practice to start, and that rings especially true in small towns all across the Midwest, where every store closes up and every light is turned off except for those at the stadium on a Friday night.
Some coaches are even more anxious to get started this season.
Take a quick perusal of the top of the time sheets from the 13-14 and 15-over age divisions at the Western Ohio Aquatic League Championships last weekend at Wapakoneta WaterPark and youâ€™re likely to see some familiar names.
You will also see some names that you will likely be hearing a lot in the near future.
Fans of Wapakoneta swimming should be used to hearing names such as Fleagle and Kantner.
Now they can add Miller, Sammons and Sutton to that list.
