FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Friday: Brian Kelly

Sports Illustrated senior writer George Dohrmann joined the show to talk about his story on Jim Tressel and what role it played in the Ohio State coach’s resignation.

Dohrmann said he never approached Ohio State directly when he was reporting the story because he didn’t think he’d get anything good. He tried to talk to drug dealers and other fringe characters to get information. Dohrmann said the players were hanging out with these guys.

Dorhmann explained that he did call Ohio State last Friday to tell it all the allegations he had against Tressel. The school said it would call back, but he didn’t hear anything later that day. On Saturday, Dohrmann called back, and the school said he should contact Tressel’s lawyer. And that school officials did not tell Tressel what was in the story. Dohrmann thinks Ohio State was already trying to distance itself from the coach.

Dohrmann said the car angle is still being investigated. He said that Terrelle Pryor had eight different cars during his time at Ohio State.

Dorhmann said that the players were hanging out at a tattoo parlor in a bad part of Columbus. And that it was the social hub for many players.

Dohrmann also said that players traded signatures and memorabilia for marijuana, in addition to tattoos.

Dohrman thinks that Tressel could end up going back to Youngstown State or a smaller school. He doesn’t think that he’ll go right into a major program. One reason is the NCAA will attach sanctions with Tressel for the next school he goes to — if he comes back to coaching.
