Ohio State Football: Scandal Rocks Buckeyes Program
Ohio State football, as is quickly being noted across the country, has five Ohio State Buckeyes players suspended in a scandal. The NCAA had reported that they were looking into the program as a result of reports that Buckeyes players were trading autographs for tattoos.
Offensive tackle Mike Adams, running back Dan Herron, wide receiver DeVier Posey, quarterback Terrelle Pryor, and defensive lineman Solomon Thomas are suspended for five games, while Jordan Whiting is suspended for one for the 2011 season.
According to ESPN, here's what exactly happened: "Five players were found to have sold awards, gifts and university apparel, plus receive improper benefits in 2009. In addition to missing five games next season, Pryor, Mike Adams, Daniel Herron, Devier Posey and Solomon Thomas must repay money and benefits ranging in value from $1,000 to $2,500. The repayments must be made to a charity."
