Let the "NCAA letting Ohio State off easy" conspiracy theories begin.

Is it time to call in George Noory and Alex Jones about Tresselgate? With the news that the NCAA won't drop "failure to monitor" charges on Ohio State, there are already charges that the news sounds a little suspicious itself. Bob Hunter of The Columbus Dispatch already seems to be doing so.

"It's hard to believe Tressel was the only one who knew, that he didn't discuss the situation with anybody at the university. It's all Tressel's fault? How convenient.

It's also remarkable the NCAA couldn't find much beyond the initial violations. Not because Ohio State runs a dirty program, but because a serious investigation of any program would turn up at least some minor violations. I keep thinking about how those ineligible players were allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl with the NCAA's blessing, and I'm trying to convince myself that the hypocrisy stops before it gets this far."

The next thing you know, someone will claim this was the man the NCAA sent to investigate the Buckeyes:

Pretty soon, Ohio State getting off easy will be blamed on everybody from the BCS, to the Trilateral Commission,the CIA, the Illuminati, the Bilderberg Group, Opus Dei, etc.Oh wait, Opus Dei backs Notre Dame. So scratch that last one.
