Jim Tressell found himself to be the figurehead of the Ohio State scandal involving a Columbus tattoo parlor that was trading tattoos, and allegedly cash and drugs, to players in exchange for equipment and memorabilia. The NCAA investigated what exactly happened at Ohio State, and handed down sanctions.
Tressell knowingly hid the violations committed by the players from the NCAA, which led to him being forced into resignation. In a report written by Sports Illustrated, Tressell was also accused of rigging drawings at camps, making sure the top prospects would win jerseys and cleats - from Bleacher Report.
