Jim Tressel Sports Illustrated Cover - How Deep It Went
May 31, 2011

So, it wasn’t just a couple of kids last year doing something stupid. Has there been a powerful college football team over the last 30 years that hasn’t cheated? Tressel was forced out three days after Sports Illustrated alerted Ohio State officials that the wrongdoing by Tressel’s players was far more widespread than had been reported.
