There is already a thread on Ray's conviction for drug dealing, but I think this is a little different slant on the whole thing. Ken Small publicly attacked Jim Tressel's character when he suspended Ray for repeated violations. I don't know much about Ken, other than he tried to trash Tressel publicly, but my question is where is Ken today? I think Jim Tressel is owed a public apology for questioning his motives for suspending Ray. Tressel is too classy to say anything about it, but as a fan this does really irritate me.

Classy enough to rig a raffle and sweep violations under the rug as well.  Time to let it go....

-Thanks for pointing out the lack of sarcasm font before I was rightfully roasted at the stake.

Sorry, I absolutely meant to use the sarcasm font.  Please forgive me boys, my bad.

It's all good man. Sometimes the phrasing of it can make sarcasm hard to see in a text format. When in doubt, use the necessary font or dots.

I just assumed you were being sarcastic, but maybe you are being serious. You really think Tressel fixed a raffle? What are you Doehrmann's personal assistant?

Hahahaha.  No just a poor miss on my part not using the sarcasm font.  What a crappy job that would be though.

Back in early January of 2009 I was working in the payroll department for Speedway.  One of the other employees in the department received a phone call from an irate employee about how they wanted paid.  It just so happened this employee was named Ken Small.  The other employee transferred the call to me and I tried to talk to him but he was very rude and was yelling profanities.  He had been shorted on his pay and at Speedway we had this system where we could pay employees out of a cash register at the store they worked in and he wanted us to do this for him.  I told him no problem but then he told me he was out in Arizona and we didn't have any locations there so we had no way to get him the money other than to mail him a check.  He went back to yelling pretty quickly and insisted that we wire him the money.  Things progressed and he demanded to speak to my boss so eventually I transferred the call but we of course never wired him the money.

At the time I didn't think much about it but later that evening I remember putting it together.  I know his name was Ken Small and that he lived in Columbus.  Ohio State was out in Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl against Texas.  I still don't know for sure that it was THE Ken Small but I like to believe it was.

Well, the pattern certainly fits with what we know about THE Ken Small. Ken was totally ok with using the media to air public grievances, but that means he's also now open to public criticism. The sad reality is that Ray is probably what he is today because of the guidance or lack thereof from Ken. It's pretty telling, though,  that Ted Ginn, Sr. has been a huge Tressel supporter and even said he would come to Columbus to kick Ray's ass and that Ray had better straighten up. Maybe Ken will use this time to do some soul searching of his own.

Don't think you'll ever see that apology in your lifetime.

It's called egomaniacs
