In 2010, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was suspended for the first five games of the Buckeyes’ season and mandated to pay back $2,500 as a result of selling his 2008 Big Ten championship ring and other Ohio State memorabilia.
That very ring resurfaced and was up for auction on eBay last week. The bidding ended Saturday with the ring going to the winning bidder for a mere $18,100.00.
The buyer is unknown. And while you have to think it was an Ohio State fan, it’s odd to have to a piece of what caused the Buckeyes undefeated in 2012 to mean absolutely nothing as the football program was ineligible for a bowl stemming from Pryor and his teammates selling these items.
