Crystal Ball Run:
Perhaps Ohio State should have followed in the foot steps of Miami. While the Hurricanes did their own dirty work in skipping out on postseason play this year, Ohio State walked up to the soup bar in their fashion and confidently asked for postseason play. The NCAA responded with "No postseason for you, one year!"
The news comes as a bit of a surprise, but the NCAA will ban Ohio State from postseason for one year, the 2012 season, according to a story by The Columbus Dispatch. This means there will be no bowl game for the Buckeyes in Urban Meyer's first season on the job and they will be eliminated form the running for the Big Ten championship game, much like USC was ruled out of the running during their postseason ban this season in the Pac 12. On, Wisconsin!
As we know by now, the Buckeyes were labeled a repeat violator that failed to monitor the football program properly. The official details of the ruling will be confirmed this afternoon but The Dispatch reports ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The NCAA shocked Buckeye Nation today by imposing a bowl ban for the 2012 season. How will this effect OSU? Will recruits de-commit? Will Urban Meyer renege on his pledge to be head coach at OSU?
Ari Wasserman of the Buckeye Sports Bulletin has already tweeted that Urban Meyer will not leave Ohio State and that three of the four commits following Urban Meyer's hiring...
A few highlights from Urban Meyer's time on the Dan Patrick Show;
Was there any thought of not taking the Ohio State job?
Oh yeah. The contact was made on that Sunday and I kind of was watching all Fall and with the NCAA you just dont know until you know and Ive always been an Ohio State fan as far back as I can remember. Im not going to do something thats not the right time...
Florida hasn’t done well at slowing mobile quarterbacks this season. Discipline caused problems on the field this season when the defensive line was unable to hold the edge and keep quarterbacks from creating yards when plays broke down. Discipline is being pounded into their heads every day in bowl practice, as Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller will be their toughest running...
A wise man once explained that while poverty is an injustice, the NCAA is simply inexplicable.
It wasnt Confucius who said it, but it was confucian in its simple logic.
Because the NCAA makes a habit of baffling, incoherent, near absurd rulings, and it makes them with all the pomposity of a British know-it-all traipsing through Australia in the penal colony days. Its even easy to...
Ohio State will find out its NCAA fate later today. Athletic director Gene Smith confirmed to The Associated Press early Tuesday that the NCAA's committee on infractions would hand down its final sanctions of the Ohio State athletic program at 3 p.m. EST. The decision comes almost a year to the day since problems were first revealed in the football program.

Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - Ohio State received a one-year postseason ban among the sanctions handed down Tuesday by the NCAA for a memorabilia scandal that cost Jim Tressel his job as head football coach.
The postseason ban means the Buckeyes won't be eligible to play in a bowl game or the Big Ten championship game during new head coach Urban Meyer's first year.
In a ruling by the NCAA's Division I Committee on Infractions on Tuesday, Ohio State was cited for failure to monitor, preferential treatment and extra benefit violations in its football program. Former coach Jim Tressel was found to have engaged in unethical conduct.
Here are the penalties facing Ohio State.
- One-year bowl ban for the 2012 postseason.
- Reduction of football...
Urban Meyer's first Ohio State team won't be bowl bound.
Over four months after appearing in front of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions, Ohio State will learn how big of a hammer the NCAA will lay down on its football program. According to the Associated Press, OSU athletic director Gene Smith confirmed that the NCAA’s COI will hand down its final sanctions at 3 p.m.…
Buckeyes, still ranked No. 2 in the nation, hope to be 12-1 before Big Ten season opener on Dec. 28 against Northwestern.
North Carolina interim coach Everett Withers says he is heading to Ohio State to become Urban Meyer's co-defensive coordinator and assistant head coach.
Ohio State's NCAA sanctions included a five-year show-cause penalty for Jim Tressel. That sounds harsh, but a smaller school could, and should, hire The Vest, says Andy Staples.
