With his talent level, he had the ability go to the CFL/Arena League and make money to support his family. Both leagues have low age requirements than the NFL. He was focusing on himself (and his family) and ignored the consequences it could have on his teammates. He enjoyed the lifestyle of being a college football star and the extra benefits that he choose to accept.
I thought she was living in Columbus...?
F the NCAA
F the BOT
so how did they survive before he was a star? regardless, I'm less concerned about what the players at OSU did than the fact that Tressel was informed, did nothing, and passively lied about it to the NCAA. That's the real issue. Kids are always going to bend the rules... it's happened at PSU. There was a certain fast food chain that was giving out free food to players for a time. The difference is that as soon as PSU found out about it, even though it was minor, they had a meeting, laid into the team, and basically banned them from eating there.
Once these players saw that there were no or very minor consequences, it becomes the culture of the program. once the coach goes to the point of covering for the players you know it's beyond repair.
"That and he plays for Raiders"
Are you sure?? He may be on the roster, but being a Raiders fan and watching every game, the guy don't see the field. He was on the inactive list almost every game this season till about 2 weeks ago, and in those 2 games, but have seen 4 plays! He's a waste at QB
It really sucks this is what we're up against. A lot of the kids at ohio st are really just semi-pro football players. If their players don't have to go to class and can focus all their attention on football, that's a big advantage. It's a credit to our team that we beat them every few years.
I'm sure he could help his mother out by handing her the keys to one of those seven or eight cars he was driving around in Columbus.
Pryor was helping Pryor and I do not believe for one minute that his acts were noble regarding his family. And they definitely were not noble in regards to his team. How do you explain all the high end designer clothes, hats belts and shoes. The guy is from the me generation and had thought he was owed everything. And I have no doubt he was on the Sarinak payroll in high school.
The college football world and $OSU has not heard the end from this guy. When he ends his lack luster career in the NFL he is going to be broke with no means to make a living. And this guy has expensive tastes. He is going to tell his story to the highest bidder, just wait.
There is none so blind as he that will not see OR the NCAA, equals.
If you really try hard you can not see a lot of things. $$$$$$$ causes blindness apparently.
