Tressel Knew about Player Selling Gear months in Advance

Ohio St. football coach Jim Tressel was aware that some of his players had sold memorabilia in exchange for tattoos more than eight months before the school was informed about the improper transactions.
Tressel was notified in April 2010 that some of his player were selling jerseys and championship rings among other things to the owner of a local tattoo parlor, according to ESPN.
Five football players were suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season, but were allowed to play in the team's bowl game, according to Sports Illustrated.
If it is proven that Tressel knew about the rules violations and did not tell anyone, the school could face more NCAA sanctions.
The school is appealing to the NCAA that the suspensions be reduced.
