Ohio State Football: Violations are true
According to Ken Gordon of the Columbus Dispatch, a news release states that five players, including Aaron Pryor and Dan Herron, will be sitting out the first five games of the 2011 season for selling Ohio State items.
Apparently, the players will play in the Sugar Bowl.
OSU athletic director Gene Smith is speaking now. He said an investigation began on Dec. 9. Athletes were interviewed on Dec. 16. On Dec. 17, the Big Ten and NCAA were informed and the school was preparing to self-report violations, which was actually sent on Dec. 19.
Smith said the players will play in the Sugar Bowl and they will appeal the five-game suspensions for the 2011 season.
Those five games are Akron, Toledo, Miami, Colorado and Michigan State.
Smith said he believes the school will be able to submit "mitigating circumstances" to reduce the suspensions.
