Tressel's Heroes: I know nothing...NOTHING!

Got the following email from MZone reader Bob last week:

I just read the article on Andy’s buffet about making Tressel stay and not firing him.   I had a thought when I read it and wanted to pass it on.
Excerpt from the article:
A few years ago Troy Smith, the Ohio State Heisman Trophy winner, admitted he had received improper benefits from boosters.
Tressel claimed no knowledge.
Before that, running back Maurice Clarett said in an ESPN The Magazine article that the coach, other members of the Buckeyes staff and Ohio State boosters were guilty of numerous N.C.A.A. improprieties, including providing him — and at times others — with free loaner cars, bogus jobs that paid well and passing grades for classes he did not attend. Nothing came of the accusations, and Clarett wound up in prison for crimes unrelated to football.
Then there was Ray Isaac, Tressel’s quarterback at Youngstown State. Isaac ran into trouble with the N.C.A.A. because he received improper benefits, including money and the use of cars.
Tressel, again, said he knew nothing, though Youngstown State eventually admitted to wrongdoing and accepted minor penalties.

We need a youtube extract of Sargent Schultz (from Hogan’s Heros)  saying “I know nothing”

Agreed. Your wish is our command, Bob. See below!

Flashback in History:
March 20, 1969
While watching an episode of "Hogan's Heroes" the young, impressionable Jim Tressel adopts Sgt. Schulz as a mentor. In an effort to balance his love for his other hero, Mr. Rogers, Tressel takes to wearing sweatervests. The combination proves to be an evil force.

How do you know when Jim Tressel is lying?
His lips are moving...

i am OSU fan living here in the fine state of Michgain(I do love it here!)The fact that it is illegal for players to sell there OWN property for cash,should be up to the player.But the NCAA has a bunch of strange rules that need to be changed.If this was a UofM player my views would still be the same.Unlike the reggie bush pay off or cam newton to go to those schools this players selling there own property.But as for Tressel what he did was stupid and selfish and he deserves what he gets from the NCAA.Not a job loss I mean we should hold our politians to these same standards.
