COLUMBUS — 'Tis the season to be ... spreading rumors.

Just days after the suspension of six Ohio State football players, the rumor mill was in overdrive on Christmas day with stories circulating that Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel would be stepping down as the OSU mentor following the Sugar Bowl.

However, these rumors have been found to be completely false according to Ohio State director of athletics Gene Smith. Several OSU class of 2011 recruits also confirmed to The Buckeye Times on Saturday night that the stories were completely untrue.

Usually we don't deal with rumors and tabloid journalism, but in this case, we felt the stories needed to be set straight.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
