This is a book by authors Armen Keteyian and Jeff Benedict. Keteyian has worked as a chief investigative reporter for CBS News and 60 Minutes, and Benedict writes for Sports Illustrated. The book dives deeper into the scandals of big-time college football schools including Tennessee, Texas Tech and, of course, Ohio State
According to this Dan Wetzel article, the book contains previously un-released transcripts from the NCAA interviews with Tressel and Gene Smith.
Also, Bobby DiGeronimo talks about Gene Smith's claims that he talked to Bobby a the issues that came up...
"Never," DiGeronimo said. "Never called me. Never called me one time. Never. We never had a conversation about that. There was nothing. He's lying. He's outright lying. Never any meeting. Never any voicemail. Everything he says is a lie. Everything."
It's not all about bashing Ohio State and other schools though. The NCAA gets some of the love as well...
"The System" also presents the case that NCAA investigators were overzealous in parts of their investigation against Ohio State, most notably in ignoring some pretty compelling evidence that DiGeronimo overpaid player DeVier Posey by a mere $3.07 and should never have received a five-game suspension for that. It also shows the seemingly differing and troubling standards for players and coaches/administrators, where the former must recall every detail precisely or risk eligibility, while the latter is allowed to struggle with specifics
Seems like it might be an interesting read. I might pick it up.
