The Inanity Of Ohio State's Secondary Violations

There's a report from Doug Lesmerises in the Plain Dealer this morning about a slew of secondary violations self-reported by Ohio State's Athletic Department. None of these violations are particularly alarming, and most of them are downright fatuous but, as the expert Lesmerises cited said, it would be a bad sign if OSU wasn't reporting these kind of minor transgressions. A snippet of the kinds of things we're talking about here:

Football coach Urban Meyer said "Good luck," to recruit Noah Spence before his state championship game in Pennsylvania in December. Contact like that with Spence, on his game day, is forbidden.

On Aug. 20, assistant coach Dick Tressel responded to a text message from the parents of recruit Warren Ball asking which gate to use to enter Ohio Stadium for a scrimmage. Texting the parents of a recruit was a violation.

Oh, and Mike Vrabel also apparently loves his dip on the sidelines - another violation.
