Keep those Posey and Herron jerseys in the closet for another week, kids.  If rumors prove to become news, the suspended Ohio State wide receiver and running back could be on the shelf for yet another week due to…wait for it…

Improper benefits.

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Daniel “Boom” Herron and DeVier Posey will likely miss the contest against one-loss Nebraska due to taking home a bit more money than they should have during a summer job up in Cleveland.  Take it away, Tim May:

A separate probe by the NCAA into Herron and Posey apparently showed they may have received improper benefits in terms of alleged inflated remuneration while working summer jobs in the Cleveland area. It could mean at least one more game of suspension for Herron, for whom the benefits was said to be in the $200 to $400 range, and perhaps multiple games for Posey, for whom the benefit was said to be about $500.

Both players are refuting such news, but the NCAA – as usual – has the final say.

With the Buckeyes traveling to Lincoln this week, its tough to envision any inflated remuneration of the Buckeye’s box score.  In a masochistic way, this may prove to be a bit of a diversion for head coach Luke Fickell who would have been bombarded with Miller-Bauserman-offensive philosophy crticisms for the next five days.

If there’s any positives here, left tackle Mike Adams and defensive end Solomon Thomas are “expected to be cleared” for their time served following the tattoo-based infractions which led to the suspension of five players in totality and the resignation of one Jim Tressel.  A starting left tackle could mean good (better?) things for quarterback Braxton Miller who continues to have very little time in the pocket, or what should be a pocket.  Naturally, this does not bolster the weaponry which Miller could have at his disposal, rendering the offensive cupboard as barren as it was against the Spartans this past Saturday.
