Editor's note: New coaches inherit a blank slate and often, an empty house. But new coaches who take positions at schools rocked by scandal face special challenges. Here's a look at how Ohio State is rebounding from that situation.

Jim Tressel's tenure at Ohio State began to unravel when it was revealed some of his players received cash and tattoos in exchange for memorabilia. Things turned for the worse when Tressel didn't bring the infractions to light when the NCAA questioned the allegations.

Ohio State received a one-year bowl ban and had its scholarship total trimmed from 85 to 82 for three seasons. The Buckeyes also voluntarily vacated their 2010 Sugar Bowl season. This year is the last in which current coach Urban Meyer and Co. have to deal with those sanctions.
