Found December 02, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Ohio State and current Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be active for the first time this season when the Raiders host the Browns this afternoon. The third-round supplemental draft pick from 2011 saw action in one game last season after serving his 5-game suspension that the NFL carried over from his college days. In case you forgot, Pryor was the headline player in the OSU tattoo scandal that cost Jim Tressel his job and the Buckeyes a chance to play in a bowl game 1 this season. Pryor was *31-4 in his three years at OSU, quarterbacking *three Big Ten championships, a Rose Bowl win over Oregon, and a *Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas. 2 ___________________________________ Probably one in Miami, FL against Notre Dame Here an asterisk, there an asterisk, everywhere an asterisk.
