Found November 10, 2011 on Rumors and Rants:
The NCAA has notified Ohio State that it will face a “failure to monitor charge” in addition to more allegations related to its football program. On Thursday Ohio State announced it will dock itself five total football scholarships over the next three years in response to the new alleged violations. The Buckeyes are currently awaiting a ruling after going before the NCAA’s committee on infractions back in August for the tattoo-for-memorabilia scandal that forced former coach Tim Tressel to resign. They received another notice of allegations from the NCAA on November 3, and those infractions revolve around a Cleveland-based booster who allegedly provided impermissible benefits to players. The “failure to monitor” charge is one of the most significant the NCAA can bring against a member school and is typically one step short of a “lack of institutional control” charge. Ohio State officials are scheduled to appear before the NCAA committee on infractions again on Dec...

Sandusky painted out of Penn State mural

Artist Michael Pilato was on a mission. He went to the giant mural he created near the Penn State bookstore and painted over the image of former Penn State defensive coordinator and accused child sex offender Jerry Sandusky. That’s right.

NCAA Completes Ohio State Investigation, OSU Imposes More Sanctions

When The Ohio State University went through the scandal with former coach Jim Tressel, the hope of the University and its athletic department was that firing Jim Tressel and self-imposing probation plus forfeiting the last season would be enough.

NCAA Completes Ohio St Investigation; Big 10′s “Other Scandal”

The Ohio State University  has both metaphorically and literally “sent out a press release on Friday at 6pm” quite a few times this past year. They’ve had a lot of bad news to disclose to their media contingent regarding Jim Tressel, Terrelle Pryor, Boom Herron, Devier Posey, free tattoos, NCAA sanctions etc. And that’s when you send out a media release of that sort, at...

Last trip to Purdue a bad memory for Buckeyes

The Buckeyes face a make-or-break stretch run that starts with a road trip to Purdue.

President Gee’s letter to AD Smith

With all of the turmoil involving the NCAA’s investigation of the Ohio State football program and the sanctions that will follow, I still can’t believe that director of athletics, Gene Smith, still has a job. The university forced former head coach Jim Tressel to resign on May 30, and...

Ohio State to be sans receiver against Purdue

Ohio State’s passing game has been, um, inconsistent for much of the season — tight end Jake Stoneburner leads the team in receptions with 12 — and now the Buckeyes are going to be down one of their more productive receivers.
