Yeah, he's done IMO - I'd be shocked if he took another snap for the Bucks ...

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Terrelle Pryor's career at Ohio State, which started with so much promise and potential, has come to an abrupt and scandal-ridden end.

The Ohio State quarterback announced through his attorney on Tuesday that he would not play for the Buckeyes this season.

"In the best interests of my teammates, I've made the decision to forgo my senior year of football at The Ohio State University," Pryor said in a statement issued by Columbus lawyer Larry James.

Pryor will most likely make himself available for an NFL supplemental draft.

Just got a notification on my phone... OSU places football team on probation, vacates 2010 wins.

gunna see what else I can find.

The Ohio State University announced Friday it is vacating all 10 of its victories from the 2010 football season and placing itself on two years' probation in the wake of a scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job.


Five players were suspended for the first five games of the upcoming season.


Tressel and the university also announced they had agreed to recharacterize his departure as a retirement rather than a resignation.

I don't understand that at all.

Maybe I just don't have enough information, but as far as I can tell, selling memorabilia has no effect on the outcome of football games.

They already suspended the players and ran Tressell out of town...now giving up the wins in the 2010 season?

What garbage.

Vacating the wins really doesn't do a whole lot. The deal with the selling of memoribilla is that it allows for an easy way to get $$ into the hands of the players. I do think it is a big deal. If allowed it would very easy for players to get money from boosters or fans. I am really surprised that there hasn't been more getting caught. It would be real easy for a player to sign balls, pictures, etc and sell them on EBay or Craigslist through a middleman (friend). They could rack up some $$.
