Cornerback Donald Washington has been ruled eligible for the BCS Championship game against LSU. After word leaked that Washington and fellow defensive back Eugene Clifford had been suspended for the game, the university later clarified that only Clifford had been suspended and that Washington was potentially appealing his suspension.
We still don't know why the two were suspended in the first place, nor do we know any more today, thanks to the noise-canceling walls the Vest has erected around the program -- that and because The Dispatch is essentially the Pravda of Columbus, but the Buckeyes will have the services of Washington for the big game.
It's great to have him available, but is this an instance of us fans putting aside our standards and ideals for the sake of a "W"? Do we even have any right to know what went down?
