Ohio State to vacate 2010 wins

Posted By on Fri, Jul 8, 2011 at 1:17 PM

Responding to a memorabilia-selling scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job, Ohio State University told the NCAA today that they will vacate their wins from the entire 2010 football season, including their Big Ten championship and their victory over Arkansas in the 2011 Sugar Bowl.

Ohio State said Friday it also is waiving a $250,000 fine it had imposed on Tressel for failing to report that players had exchanged jerseys and equipment for cash at a local tattoo parlor. The university will allow Tressel to retire, and is imposing a two-year probation period on the football program.

Ohio State will be meeting with the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Aug. 12, where harsher penalties could be imposed.
