NCAA Shortens Ohio State Players’ Suspensions

NCAA Shortens Ohio State Players Suspensions.

Comments (22)|11 Liked It

     Rumors of the 2011 Ohio State Buckeyes demise may have been reported a touch early.  The NCAA is expected to announce in a statement by Friday that the Suspensions of Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, and the other Ohio State football players suspended in ‘tatoo-gate’ will have their suspensions reduced from 5 games to 2 games.

     The University had appealed, saying that the punishment far outweighed the crime in this instance, and, according to sources, the NCAA agrees after recieving all of the facts in this matter.

     This changes the landscape of the Big Ten drastically for the 2011 season, essentially vaulting the Buckeyes back into the discussion for the National Title; the suspended players will now only miss games against Akron and Toledo, games the Buckeyes would win easily by fielding their third stringers.

     Terelle Pryor now also becomes a key component in the 2011 Heisman trophy race; as evidenced by Cam Newton, the voters have no problem anymore ignoring the possibility of violations and focusing on money results and on field performance.

    I am happy for OSU but very dispointed about the Ncaa. It seems they a very choosey who the disapline. Too me it is like the BCS both are all hat and no horse. They have let some pretty nasty stuff fly in front of them that if back in the day of SMU would have killed a lot of programs. I think it would behove the major universities to form there equivalent of the NCAA for each divison 1,2,and 3. Each making their own decision. Do away with the BCS formula and have 3 conferences in each divison the east ,middle, and west. Maybe 2 conferences withever works best..This way you could have a 100 times better system we have now.
    Thanks for leting me post and I hope I haven’t offended anyone.

    i think its a crock of crap. A.J. Green sells his jersey and its a 4 game suspension. TP sells all kinds of stuff gets to play in the bcs bowl and gets his reduced to 2 game suspension. And by the way im a Carolina Gamecocks fan so i dont even like georgia but if it would have happened to any other schools besides notre dame alabama or ohio state they would be trying to burn the house down but since its ohio state its just a slap on the wrist.

    why have no credible news sources reported this news? This web site makes up stories!!

    I head that Jim Tressel will take the suspension games off and let TP coach… We need to break this asap.

    Bollman found out about this and has noted that he will also take off and inform the offense to run 100% Dave.

    Also of unfortunate fate… the NCAA has ruled that Steve Bellisari will be reinstated for (1) game. They deemed his Senior year game suspension (due to DUI) was handled inappropriatly… So look for him to get 100% snaps with 1st string this offseason. TP has been training with Steve and commented, “He still has that soft touch and dead aim accuracy”.

    Rumor Mill:
    - Les Miles will be named UM coach in 2016.
    - Nick Saban distributed cheerleading scholly for 5 members of the 2012 class of 34.

    More news to follow.

    This is completely untrue. The NCAA has NOT made a ruling yet and the rumors are that IF the suspension are reduced it will be from 5 games to 4.

  13. Posted January 22, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    Yeah I do not know all of the logistics of the suspension but, I did not think they were getting reduced to 2 games. It may happen though they have no chance if those key players aren’t fielded. Especially Pryor and my hometown ex classmate Solomon Thomas. Hopefully the NCAA drops the suspension, but if so it’ll probably happen right before the games.

    I think Ohio State should be “Blackballed”…..haha After losing to the SEC nine times in a roll(should have been ten), i guess they’ve been blackballed enough…haha
