Is he allowed under NCAA rules?

Kind of crossed my mind as well. I guess we'll soon find out.

If he can give them to friends and family, as long as he doesn't profit from it I don't see how it would be any different.

Well, if Terrelle does get any punishment from the NCAA on this after the Newton travesty, then the NCAA's reign is over. And I mean that in the I'm ready to go on a mass murdering streak kind of way.

All he would have to do is claim he had no knowledge of the situation and that it was entirely someone else's doing.

All players are given comp tickets to games and are allowed to give them to whom they chose to. The only requirement is that they or the person receiving them can not sell them for a profit. However, a charity may use them to generate donations.

Looks like Pryor met with OSU compliance over the issue. They're concerned some of his followers might be boosters or recruits and giving either tickets is a no-no.

I want to try and make a couple of points without sounding like too much of a dick... Here goes...

One, if you are a grown up male (somewhere over the age of 30) you can avoid one form of douchebaggery by not following OSU players (and recruits) on Twitter and facebook. (You may receive a pass if you are a journalist, but maybe not.)

Two, if you are a booster, don't try to score free swag from players... C'mon, main!

I shut my account down when it appeared I was going to Gitmo, along with my blog.
That being said, following athletes was dissapointing; Evan Turner was cool, but not too many others. I mainly used it to keep up with running friends.
