COLUMBUS — Ohio State released a copy of its "notice of allegations" (issued by the NCAA) to the public on Monday, adding more fuel to the firestorm which has surrounded the Buckeyes football program in recent months.

The fourth page of the "notice" accuses Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel of dishonesty, stating that he "failed to deport himself in accordance with the honesty and integrity normally associated with the conduct and administration of intercollegiate athletics as required by NCAA legislation and violated ethical-conduct legislation when he failed to report information concerning violations of NCAA legislation and permitted football student-athletes to participate in intercollegiate athletics competition while ineligible."

The freshman from Huber Heights (OH) finished Saturday's scrimmage 7-of-12 in the air for 73 yards and a touchdown. He also added 19 yards rushing on four carries.

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel said Wednesday that those people whose opinions actually matter, think otherwise.
