"Well, surprise, surprise, Ray Small is suddenly changing his tune. In an interview with WBNS-10TV in Columbus, Small says that The Lantern "flipped" his words.

"It's hard being an athlete," Small said. "That was basically what I was saying. (The Lantern author) just flipped my words around and make the whole Buckeye Nation hate me."

Small went on to say that The Lantern got the majority of the story wrong.

The Lantern denied Small's allegation, Aker reported.

"We, 100 percent, stand by our story," said Lantern Editor Zach Meisel. "Everything (Small) said was recorded."

Really Ray?

Now who do you believe? Do you believe a student newspaper or do you believe a Former Buckeye who may or may not have a bone to pick with the football program at The Ohio State University?

I, myself, tend to lean toward believing the newspaper. They have more riding on what they publish than the words of a former player.

This Ohio State Football scandal has been riddled with ups and downs and involves a program that, before now, had been rather quiet when it came to scandals. Is it time to cut ties with Coach Tressel and rebuild everything, or does the administration of the university stand by the Vest and try to endure the punishment that will surely be coming their way?
