Suspensions Hold For TatGate 5
Per an NCAA release, the NCAA Division I Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement has upheld the decision that the OSU's five suspended athletes must serve the entirety of the original five game suspensions.
According to the NCAA, Mike Adams, Daniel Herron, DeVier Posey, Terrelle Pryor and Solomon Thomas will have to sit out the first five games of the 2011 season for trading and selling awards, gifts and university apparel, as well as receiving improper benefits in 2009. These players must also repay money and benefits ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 as per the terms.
Can't pretend this is surprising giving the Tressel circumstances, but it's disappointing none the less.
