On the bright side, OSU has the opportunity to make it an even 0-10 in few weeks ;)

Meh, if I was a bench player and was going on to some entry-level position I'd sell that ****. What am I going to do? Wear it around? "WOW, YOU WERE ON THE TIDE?! WERE YOU GOOD?!" "Well, I rode the bench but my moral support was really the key."

Joking aside, I think 0-10 will happen, regardless of suspensions. I also think it's BS that they aren't suspended for the SB. I hope JT mulls it over and does it. Integrity means a lot. At the end of the day he's just a football coach, no matter what pedestal people in Ohio put him on.

Can't disagree with you there, it just doesn't make much sense from where I'm standing either. Either way, it's still peanuts compared to what's going on at Aubarn.

Bias aside, I can only in good conscience favor one Big-10 team in the bowl matchups with the SEC. I think Penn St. beats Florida.

Other than that, I like the SEC in all the other matchups with Big-10 teams... if I was a betting man, of course. o-O

If only they had chosen to steal laptops instead of sell their own property in order to make money they wouldn't be suspended.

as of right now, none of Pryor, Posey, Adams, or Herron are going to go pro

obviously things could change, but they have told people on the team and close to OSU football they will return and make up for this. None of them want to go out like this or be remembered for this.

Quote:
Julie Posey is grateful that her son DeVier has an athletic scholarship to Ohio State.

A widow with four children, she appreciates that the scholarship provides for tuition, books and room and board. But she also is fully aware of what an athletic scholarship does not cover, which is virtually everything else.

It is a gap that she estimates costs her thousands of dollars per year in miscellaneous living expenses.

blah blah blah...

Julie Posey said the NCAA - not her son and not Ohio State - is the real guilty party.

"The NCAA is amazing," she said. "Every time you turn around, they come up with something new to ensure that the young men that have poured their hearts and souls and energy and intellect into their craft are continually kept at a disadvantage when everybody else around them is running to the bank."
What a ******* twat.

Wait, you mean she only has to pay a few thousand each year for her son to attend Ohio State? You mean that room and board & tuition and fees, which runs to about 20k a year (sauce) only costs you a few thousand? **** you, lady.

Pat Forde:

NCAA ruling defies common sense


A few clips:

Quote:
Newton said he didn't know that his father attempted to sell Cam's services to Mississippi State for $180,000. That deniability has kept Newton on the field as the Tigers have marched into the BCS National Championship Game.
Quote:
Thursday at Ohio State, we learned that five players didn't know it was a no-no to sell championship rings, game gear and personal awards for cash. Why didn't they know? According to the NCAA release, the players "did not receive adequate rules education" from the school at the time of the transgressions, which occurred in 2009. That deniability will allow all five to play in the Buckeyes' Sugar Bowl showdown with Arkansas on Jan. 4.
Quote:
So there you have it, future NCAA rules breakers of America (and your parents). Go for the gold. When you get caught, shrug and say, "Why, I had no idea." Blame it on your dad and/or a negligent compliance staff at your university.
Quote:
The NCAA has done it again, producing a ruling that defies common sense and provokes suspicions about ulterior motives.

Should have given everything to their parents as gifts. Then the parents should have turned around and solid it. When the NCAA comes questioning to the athletes play the idiot card.

She knows whats shes talking about here. Its definitely not a dumb argument, whether or not you agree with it. These college players are given very little compared to the money that everyone else in college football is making. And rules about selling their own personal property are ********.

And at the same time, I'm sure Posey only sold things when he was in a desperate need of money to buy lifes necesities. Like tattoos.

Posey is from Cincy, so he's in-state.

Yeah, I feel just so bad for the kids who have their education, books, housing, injuries and training table meals paid for. I'll weep for them the next time I write out my check for my student loans. Oh, wait, there's a ******* concept. If you're so strapped for cash (hint: they're not), get a ******* loan. Work a job in the summer. Get the **** out of here with that ****. Great, Ohio State football makes money. Most D-1 programs don't. Plus, thanks to Title IX, if you want to pay Terrelle Pryor, you also pay the backup libero on the women's volleyball team. Posey and everyone else get plenty.

College football players get the most of any student and ***** the most of any student. If a kid tears their ACL and needs surgery, who pays for it? Right, the school. I hear the Woody Hayes Athletic Center is quite the workout facility for the Buckeye athletes. I wonder how the school pays for it. Oh, right, all of the money that apparently goes to the "evil NCAA". By all accounts, Texas has a weight room that would probably make most S&C coaches (oh hey, there's someone else who gets paid because of football's profit) fall to their knees and cry tears of joy. I wonder how they paid for it.

The Buckeyes' beloved coach and his multi-million dollar salary? Paid for by the team's profits. But yeah, let's ***** and cry about this "travesty". I'll switch positions with DeVier Posey. He can have my student loans and I'll take the free education. I bet you I can make enough money to survive.

And they do get paid. The Pell Grant is out there. The money for books is double what ANYONE would spend on books. When I was an RA for some of the football players, one kid bought his books then used the rest of the cash to buy new tennis shoes.

You list all the people that get paid because of OSU players, but the players aren't among that group. When it comes down to it Posey as the example is going to end up with about 60k if he stays all for years. Nice pay day certainly, but nothing outrageous or even comparble to what the others involved in college football are making.

I don't think they should be paid, but players certainly should be able to sell their own property to anyone thats willing to buy it.
