Ohio State University Announces Self-Imposed Penalties

Ohio State University Announces Self-Imposed Penalties

The fallout continues from the Ohio State Buckeye's scandal that has already resulted in former head coach Jim Tressel's resignation and an early exit from the school by quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

The well-respected school, both academically and athletically, has come under fire due to the wide-reaching scandal that has turned Columbus upside-down. They have self-imposed their own penalties ahead of the NCAA's final decision in August. Those penalties involve vacating the entire 2010 football season, which includes the Big Ten Championship and their win over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl. Additionally, the school has placed a two-year probation on itself. If any further rules are broken, the penalties will be much harsher.

Ohio State has also revealed that they are waiving the $250,000 fine that was originally levied against Tressel and have changed his resignation to a retirement. They did not include any stipulations that would limit scholarships or ban them from future bowl games, which is likely to happen once the NCAA delivers their decision.

The scandal centers around revelations that current players received free goods and services, as well as cash, in exchange for signatures and memorabilia. Most notably, Terrelle Pryor has been accused of receiving large sums of money for his signed items.
