That's the car that Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor showed up to a team meeting at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Monday night. It's a Nissan 350z with temporary tags. Which is a pretty, shall we say, gutsy move by Pryor to make considering that only hours before a report surfaced that he was the subject of an NCAA investigation directly related to the amount of cars that Pryor has been seen riding around Columbus in.

While I can't be sure of the year model that car is, a quick Google search for a 2010 Nissan 350z showed the price to generally be in the $30,000 range. I also found some 2009 models for about $27,000. Good thing the car's registered to his mother, Thomasina Pryor; so that settles all controversy, right? Right? Oh boy.

As an OSU fan, it does suck to be going thru this.  But at the end of the day, we'll get what's handed down and deal with it.  College sports have a lot of passion, they represent many fabrics of culture.  I just wish sports would get back to being sports.  These things happen everywhere, and obviously it's OSU's turn to be looked at hard.  Next year, it'll be someone else.  Does it really matter that it's OSU now, or USC a year or two ago, or Michigan before that, or Auburn and the 180k, or Bobby Petrino bolting the Falcons high and dry, or SMU, or whoever and whenever?  It's always been there, all over the country. These kids were on the take and got busted, they should go, and Tressel paid the ultimate price.  we'll go thru a tough year and reload, just as other programs have done.  but no matter who you are, where you are from, who you root for and who you hate, just remember one thing:  as a college sports fan, the NCAA are the pimps, the players are the whores and we're the Johns.  As long as we're paying, it'll always be that way.

I am going to go ahead and state the obvious here... the kid who everyone is arguring couldnt afford a tattoo because he is not being paid as a college athlete and thats why he traded his gear... is now the kid that can afford a car (even if it is only $10000).  Not to mention the fact that he has had multiple cars in only a few years?  Riiiiiight.

Forget about Ohio State - How bad does the NCAA look now for allowing the players to play in the Bowl game and delaying the sanctions.  The NCAA should sanction themselves..

This is like the perfect storm over OHIO.  LeBron James is leading the Heat to an easy NBA championship, and Ohio's only team that has done anything in decades is getting ready to melt down like a Japanese power plant.  I don't know why I get such wonderful schadenfreude from Ohio's pain... but I do!!!

This is Pryor's 8th car in a 3 year period. But I guess every student drives that many nice cars also so nothing out of the ordinary here. Jacka$$.

Cant Be Sure of the Year huh?  From the tail lights this is a 2003 or a 2004 model.  These are for sale on Autotrader for $10,000... Seriously? Is everybody flipping out over nothing.  Half of the students on campus have cars moree expensive than this!

Yikes, this could get ugly. Anyone remember Gee's comment about "I just hope [Tressel] doesn't dismiss me..."? Wow. I wonder how soon until the Prez is gone?

Light side?  You freakin' crazy?  This is one of the worst Lack of Insitutional Controls violations I have ever seen.  The kids stole pads (equipment that should be accounted for by someone on the staff) from the locker room and sold them for tatoos and marijuana.  One piece of equipment sold even had Tressel's autograph on it.  Pryor has obviously been showing up to practice in a different sports car every week and someone on the staff doesn't notice?  Ohio State is about to get hammered so bad that USC's penalties will look like a parking ticket fine.
