Terrelle Pryor thinks you're stupid

Posted on: January 2, 2011 11:19 am
Full disclosure: I want to believe in Ohio State. I live in Ohio, my two kids will attend college most likely in Ohio, and my goal is that they attend Ohio State.

So this question is not coming from a Buckeyes basher when I ask the following:

How stupid does Terrelle Pryor think we are?

The memorabilia he sold, against NCAA rules, basically got a free pass from me. Seriously, check out my reaction to the story that Pryor and four teammates would be suspended next season, but be allowed to play Tuesday night in the Sugar Bowl. I loved that reaction from the NCAA. If my reaction was pro-Ohio State, so be it. I'm an Ohio guy, and my initial thoughts were of other Ohio residents.

But this story ...

This car story ...

Complete garbage. Everything about it stinks, from the alleged NCAA crime to the announced excuse. All of it. Garbage.

In a nutshell, Pryor has a habit of getting his hands on cars -- nice cars -- from Columbus-area dealerships, and then getting caught speeding in them. Someone smarter than me, please figure out the odds on that:

Pryor has these cars -- nice cars -- for a day or two, and without fail, he gets caught speeding. In that tiny, day-or-two window of time.

Every time.


I don't believe it. Sorry, I don't. I don't believe Pryor had those cars for only a day or two. I don't believe the car dealer. I don't believe Ohio State. I don't believe any of you.

I still want my kids to go to Ohio State. But at the moment, I want Terrelle Pryor to turn pro after the Sugar Bowl. Don't come back next season. I can live with you avoiding punishment for your memorabilia "ignorance."

But I'm not sure I can stomach the sight of you in an OSU uniform in 2011. That'll be my kids' school, you know. And Terrelle Pryor is starting to make me sick.

Terrelle Pryor thinks you're stupid

To take this a step further, if everyone in America thinks there that Pete Carroll absolutely knew about all the perks Reggie Bush was getting at the time, which included driving around in a much nicer car than any reasonable person would think he could afford, then it's fair to say that Jim Tressel also knows all the inner workings of the Pryor situation. He should be sanctioned as well.  The PROGRAM should be sanctioned, much like USC was for Bush's transgressions, or actually, for a lack of institutional oversight and control.

Gregg,  You might want to have your kids change their last names before they apply to any university that has a big time football program.  I think you've pissed each one off at least once over the years.  Keep it up!!!  
Go Gators

The NCAA has become nothing more than a clearinghouse for criminals.  The way sanctions are handed down from on high is getting a bit ridiculous.  It's all about TV ratings and Vegas.  How else can you describe the way they decide who plays, who suffers, and who gets it ungreased.  Can we at least get a kiss before we get screwed?  FREE ENES!!

Players that good are getting paid. It's not like back when SMU and everyone else was doing it in early 80's. Cam Newton's father we are to believe just decided not to go to School he wanted to Miss state? The his father picked Auburn but they didn't pay him? lol. How much did they get to fix his church?

The point is when the best players paying them still goes on. Always will. Maybe if NCAA and schools besides the scholarships paid a reasonable per diem to make sure players can go to school and play football with no need to find a job it help. The demands leave little time to work so they take easy money if offered. They are young and most think never will get caught. I bet most don't get caught. The big names have more focus on them.

Something needs to change. NCAA needs to reduce number of stupid rules while schools need to include more spending money for players. They do make these schools millions. Until they do these players will be hard pressed to pass on money they are offered when they have families in need.

Auburn IMO will end up like USC. It will be found dad got paid and that is why Cam was told to go to Auburn. The Dad wanted a payday and got one IMO. So when it does comes out same thing will happen like it did to Bush and USC years later. Can should play as Bush did but later the risk is having it taken away of you do let him play. You have to take that risk.

The sad thing is, it goes well beyond Terrelle Pryor.... AJ GREEN, MARCEL DARIEUS, when does it stop??? It doesn't because the NCAA dishes out different punishments for different people...

Agreed. Pryor, the NCAA and the Sugar Bowl all think we're morons. This, more than any other year since SMU got the death penalty, has revealed how corrupt college football is. Love the game. Hate the criminals. Hi Cam!!

Maybe Terelle Pryor had to sell his football awards to pay for his speeding tickets.

Didn't you say you lived in Alabama and your children would be attending Auburn when you wrote the Cam Newton piece?

And the NCAA keeps on turning the blind eye. Their rules are a complete joke. If you make them then you should be firm with them and hold people to them. Do you really think that they didn't know about Bush? Newton? Pryor? Hell they told OSU not to suspend those players for the Sugar Bowl! If I was any of these guy I'd laugh at the NCAA and their rules because they're toothless and the only time it'll sting is when they're already making millions in the NFL. Oh yeah, that'll teach them.

How does Pryor even still have a valid drivers license? No wonder the poor kid has to sign & sell everything with the bad luck he has on all these car repairs & then the speeding tickets.....

Has anyone checked to see if he's getting out of these speeding tickets?
