Tressel to the Colts

Everyone is screaming that Tressel should sit out 5 hames as the new replay review consultant for the Indianapolis Colts. The consensus is Tressel should serve the same suspension as Terrell Pryor due to Tattoo Gate. I am not sure this is the same thing if you are trying to weigh the Pryor situation vs Tressel. Tressel resigned on his own and is not taking this job as an upgrade in position. He left one of the most prestigious sports jobs in the whole country, one of the highest paid college football coaches, to take a minimal position with the Colts. Pryor left tOSU to finally make a legitimate paycheck with the Raiders and signed for millions. Its not apples to apples in my eyes.

  1. I agree Tressel and Pryor are two very different situations and for different reasons. For one Tressel stepped down, which to me was a punishment in itself and secondly he is not by any means in the spot light or high ranked position. Pryor broke his contract with Tressel already by leaving the team and going to the NFL and as you said is now being paid millions instead of simply having his education paid for. Not quite the same situations if you were to ask me.
