Now I will be rooting for the SEC once again against the Buckeyes!


They're only 0-9 against the SEC in bowl games anyway... they could use a little support ya know...

********. I find it hilarious and ironic he's getting suspended for selling his sportsmanship award.

I like the crackdown by the NCAA on violations. They really need to start cleaning things like this up to bring some of the credibility back. But then things like Cam Newton getting the Heisman destroy the credibility. Everyone just accepts that these things happen at every school, and the crackdown lately should make programs look into putting a stop to it. I don't think selling your own things is wrong, but its against the rules so until they are changed, they should be enforced. Their bowl game excuse is lame as hell, and 5 games for this kind of violation is pretty rough. Akron, Toledo, Miami, Colorado, and Michigan State will be the games missed, so theres at least 2 losses penciled in there.

Dissapointing, but its whatever. I'd expect atleast Posey and Herron to declare for the draft now. Adams is a possibility, and I can see Pryor letting his ego get the better of him and deciding that he can go pro. I highly doubt he'll want to come back and play without the possibility of getting a Heisman, and likely with no hope of going undefeated and playing for a title.

Really puts OSU in a bind next year offensivly. If these guys all declare, we'll be losing Pryor, Herron, Saine, Posey, and Sanz. Thats a ton of the offensive production. Judging from past performances, I think Guiton will get the start of the season over Bauserman, and either Braxton Miller will get a shot at some point later, or Pryor can take over if he stays around. A ton of the offense is going to rely a ton on a combination of Jordan Hall and Jamal Berry, with a new QB and no receivers that have proven anything.

And did you hear their AD talking on ESPN? He was saying about how they're going to submit "mitigating circumstances" to the NCAA or some other BS to try and get the suspensions reduced.

WTF!! Jesus H. Christ I hate Ohio ******* State. You think your above the ******* law. Your players sold **** they shouldn't have been selling....what the **** mitigating circumstances can there possibly be?

Georgia's A.J. Green was suspended for 4 games for selling his jersey so there is a precedent for these type of circumstances. The only problem I have with the punishment is that they should sit out for the bowl game instead of still being allowed to play.

Them playing the bowl game is ridiculous, and simply proves the NCAA and the BCS are nothing more than a money grab. Making the suspensions half of next season seems long, but then again im guessing many of thm will just choose to go pro and avoid it anyway.

As soon as it was said that they will seek reduced suspensions, ANY good they might have done in this situation went out the window.

In fact, if you want to set an incredible precedent, self impose a suspension of those players for the bowl game as well.

Any illusion of the NCAA "maintaining the integrity of the game" went out the window when they weren't suspended for the bowl game. Absolute BS.

If Tressell really does care about the thing she says he does, he should suspend these players himself for the bowl game. Clearly team and unity and integrity and all of the other "rights things" he is saying mean nothing in the end.

And Auburn is a completely different situation, doesn't even compare. They investigated, and I still think they are letting Newton play because of the money involved. A few months from now, it'll probably come out that he is going to be in trouble as well, his Heisman will eventually be stripped and Auburn will lose the wins from this season...

...but not after the schools and NCAA squeeze every damn penny out of the situation.

The NCAA has become greedy and corrupt. The integrity of the game no longer matters to them so long as they get their money....it's going to take someone from within to ever change anything.

I'm hoping the SEC "secedes" from the NCAA...start their own college athletics association. They could probably convince Texas to join them and really threaten the NCAA.

I hope it happens. I hate the NCAA. I hate the BCS. And I hate that any sort of integrity the game could possess is now tarnished beyond all recognition.

Exactly, and if they do that then they come out unscathed. They should sit for the bowl game. I know that would make the bowl game less desirable to watch but that's just tough titty.

calling BS on the "not informed" quote. There is literally 20 pages of documents every NCAA Student-Athlete has to sign and i'm pretty sure this is in there. Also, you have to attend a couple required presentations about NCAA rules, this being one of them.

these 5 guys can go off themselves for making the required compliance meetings another 10 minutes longer.

Like I said, Tressell should suspend them himself. He is saying all the "right things" now, about how these aren't the values that he teaches and blah blah blah.....team team team, values values values...


Suspend them yourself. You have the power. Don't play them. SHOW that these are the values you teach and believe in.

But he won't. He knows he needs them to win. My respect for anything Ohio State related continues to ebb away.

I think its very comparable to the Auburn and Newton situation. The NCAA let Newton play because they made a ton of money off of him, and theyre going to do the same thing with the Buckeyes players for the bowl games.

And I definitely think its the right thing for the school to both turn in the violation, and fight for it to be reduced. Ethically, they should turn themselves in, but no one does. And at the same time, these are their players. Of course they're going to fight for a shorter suspension. I mean why not? It never hurts to ask. The worst thing the NCAA can do is say no.

5 games seems like a lot for something like this. But the rules are the rules, and everyone knew them. Its up to the program, coaches, and other players to police themselves against things like this. I think the rules like this need reevaluated, but as of now it is what it is.

exactly. If they declare him ineligible now, do they forfeit every game he played in? it's too messy.
