In the midst of all the talks about Penn State, Ohio State received some bad news today. The NCAA notified Ohio State it was adding the charge of ‘Failure to Monitor’ due to recent circumstances. Jordan Hall, Travis Howard, Corey Brown, and former quarterback Terrelle Pryor all attended a charity banquet in which they received $200 for attending. Hall, Howard, and Brown were all suspended for the first two games of the season for receiving improper benefits. Devier Posey, Marcus Hall, and Daniel Herron were all suspended for their parts in a summer job scandal in which they were paid an excess amount of money for their job. Hall and Herron were each suspended one game while Posey was suspended five games. Herron and Posey were each serving suspensions for their part in the tattoo scandal that cost former coach Jim Tressel his job.
Ohio State seem to always be doing something else wrong. More than likely, they are going to be headed for a bowl ban. Ohio State already said they were going to strip itself of five scholarships over the next 3 years. I’m sure the NCAA will be adding to what Ohio State has done. Ohio State is meeting with the NCAA on December 10 to talk about the latest charges. Ohio State was waiting to hear from the NCAA about their hearing they had with the NCAA in August. Who knows when we will hear what the sanctions are now.
