Today's Tempest In A Teapot

The WWL is playing up a report that the university self-reported an incident to the NCAA regarding Tressel taking former players Anthony Gonzalez and Stan White Jr. to see the Final Four earlier in the year.

The Vest was attempting to honor the two Academic All-Americans from last year's squad with a little ride on the private jet and some sweet seats. This occurred nearly 90 days after the guys had played their last game with the university, they had already signed with agents and were no longer considered student athletes at the school.

Sounds reasonable to me.

The NCAA thinks different. This is just another case of the byzantine irregularities that make up the organization's governing rules and ultimately shouldn't amount to much, but opposing fans will certainly have some fun.

Don't you just love the pre-bowl drama that seems to come around every year or so. Things could be worse, I guess.
