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.

It's not illegal to let a kid drive a car, it's just outlawed in the NCAA's Kangaroo court.  The NCAA system is so messed up.

Nice to say that, especially after what tOSU's AD said about your bowl-worthiness last season. I've met many of the Boise contingent over the years of my college career (PAC10/WAC) and haven't come across a school with classier fans.

LSU - I heard Mike Golic say that very thing about TP on the Mike and Mike show this morning. He doesnt think he will take another snap at Ohio State. I am not an Ohio State fan but this whole debacle should be a wake up call for the NCAA and Ohio State. I have issues with the NCAA allowing those 5 players to play to begin with. The B10 commissioner I am sure did some heavy politicking to convince the powersthatbe at the NCAA to "allow" them to play. The NCAA has some serious egg on their face too. How could you give them permission to play with what they already knew and to add insult to injury Ohio State gives the green flag for them to play too. I wonder if they had not done that would we still be where we are today?: Not condoning anything Jim Tressel did whatsoever just saying....I cant understand how he thought he wouldnt get caught. He is supposed to be the adult. Even though I am a ND fan but  I have always liked him. I guess I was deluded too because he is certainly not the person he purported to be. I am sure he must have anticipated when the word leaked out that he had the chance of being burned at the proverbial stake or maybe he too was delusional thinking okay we hammer our archrival every year so all is forgiven. I think he rode the coattails of that insurance until he couldnt run it now. A lot of fans cannot stand and will definitely revel in all of this but I am not one of those fans even though admittedly, some OSU fans did take pot shots at other schools who have gone through this infractions nightmare. Still, something has to change and something has to give. Ohio State has a large staff in their Compliance Office and they didnt know about any of this? Really? As for TP's car frankly I hope they find that overrated arrogant punk was given the car. He has the arrogance to drive the car around now knowing they are investigating him....I hope Mike Golic is right. I would revel in him sitting on the bench or better yet leaving school....

Woe to tOSU

USC got two yrs ban on post-season (bowls and championships), and a reduction of 10 scholarships per year for 3 years.  And that was for a single player caught in two different sports, plus some minor issues elsewhere (using a telephone to call home, etc).  That was all it took for the NCAA to apply the label "lack of institutional control" and drop the hammer.

Now, we have dozens of players (current/former) implicated and a head coach (former) lying about it and concealing it from the administration (and worse, the NCAA).  I can't help but think that we too will earn the label "lack of institutional control."

If so, what we will we receive as punishment?  I can't see us getting any less -- and probably more.

A handle of "Hoke Is A Joke".... this what you mean by "showing class"?  Give me a break.  The guy has CLEARLY done his job in terms of getting kids in and filling the holes that were left in Ann Arbor.  To be settled on the field for sure, but a joke?  Seriously?  How is that at all warranted?  Allow this to be exhibit A of why so many people can't stand your fan base.  Now, you seem like a true fan, based on your recent post.  For you sir, I do feel bad.  It is unfortunate that so many good people have to feel the dread you are now b/c a few idiotic players with a severe sense of entitlement, a coach who looked the other way too much, and an AD and a prez who mishandled this so incredibly poorly that I honestly almost can't believe it.  But I will tell you a die-hard UM fan who sits typing this from my town of Columbus, has been NOTHING but excuses from day 1.  "Everyone else does it"...."it's not THAT bad of a thing to do, who cares if they sold some stuff"..."he was protecting his players"......    Much like the top brass at OSU, everyone around here chose to make excuses for it instead of owning it and moving on.  So my friend, while I do feel for you, don't expect the rest of CFB nation to do so as well.  Much like the fans around this town, I've yet to see one OSU poster flat-out own up to all this.  You've been running a dirty program with a dirty deceitful coach at the helm, plain and simple.  You guys enjoyed one hell of a ride the past 10 years, but if the NCAA does it's job, it's gonna slow down considerably, b/c I can promise you this doesn't start and stop with tats and cars.  There will be more, bet on it, and Tress' entire legacy will be wiped out.

Lack of institutional control?  Did Tressel or his minions ever really have any?  No.  The lunatics were running the asylum.

Again - why would we want to pay athletes in addition to tuition, room, board and great facilities to hone their craft?  They'll spend it on bling and sleeves - not food, not clothing.
