Marcus Hall's eligibility has expired, which means he's free of NCAA restrictions and can make money off his signature moment as a Buckeye – the double salute he threw up shortly after getting tossed before halftime of the Ohio State's 42-41 victory over Michigan in November.

The "4x Gold Pants" is a nice touch, and according to Marcus Hartman of Fox Sports Ohio, the signed photo is available on eBay, so if you're in the market for double salute memorabilia, you're in luck.

I don't care what the fans say who say this was classless. The piss and blue did Ohio State dirty on that play. They knew they would egg Dontre on and he played right into their hands. I can't say I blame him. And all Marcus Hall did was defend his team mate. Anyone that's in sports would have done the same thing. And then the fan's were mouthing off to Marcus on his way out so I don't blame him at all for what he did! This will be one of the timeless moments in the Ohio State vs. piss and blue rivalry..

I have been saving it until the coast was clear...but I have a picture of Hyde doing the same to the scUM fans after the game.  

I just dont know how to upload local pics from my computer to this site anymore???

You could always upload to a pic dump site like imgur or photobucket and link to the image. I think Buckeye Nation deserves this pic.

Ok, here it is.  Again, I mentioned just after THE game that I had this picture...but I didnt want to post anything until after the season.  You never know who may get their hands on it...

I am surprised nobody else picked up on it and/or noticed it.  Felt like I was in the Twilight Zone...but I wanted to make sure the coast was clear before I let this out of the vault.

I don't see the problem with it. Hall was clearly warning Ohio State that Hoke would go for two later on. He saved the day.

I think this was a memorable sports moment for me. Only because of what happened during that play (with them tearing Dontres helmet off), I don't have much grief with this play. I can see why Urbz punished him, but I am sure he was in his office saying he has to do this for "PR" reasons. You can start a fight and expect these big boys not to jump in and protect their teamates (their job!!...pretty much).

There is nothing more remarkable as learning to think better.

GOTTA LOVE IT, im suprised no one pointed out during the game or right after that Brax came runnin to the brawl grabbed big dude by the helmet & threw him like it was nothing... as 4 the fingers, every Buckeye has always wanted to.do the same thing

That is a pretty egregious error, but the picture is so awesome I didn't even notice until you pointed it out.  Takes a pretty tremendous photo and signature to dwarf an SEC-level spelling oversight.

his signature moment as a Buckeye

If this is his signature moment, then he had a crappy career as a Buckeye.  I'm sure we can find several plays of him knocking down some poor defender on a block leading to a big gain or a touchdown that are better than him throwing up double birds.  Infamous might be better.

Also agree with Prdoctor.  This doesn't speak well to an Ohio State education.

Im pretty sure that poor Penn state defensive end would agree with you. I wouldnt be surprised if that kid still didnt know where he was to this day. That wasnt a pancake...he straight erased him.

Don't blame him for cashing in on something that obviously many fans (see above) enjoyed and celebrate. But we sure could have used him the following week and because of this, he did not play. Not one of my favorite moments. Go Bucks.

I absolutely loved that hit, but I would much rather have an Orlando Pace pancake where the guy sees it coming, still can't do anything, and springs the RB for a TD.

I just don't think this is a good look. He represents The Ohio State University. If a Michigan player were doing something like this we would be screaming bloody murder. I think we should at least TRY and avoid having double standards.

Nothing like a bunch of classy butt-plugs who can't even spell notable correctly, repeating the same tired joke over and over. Ohio is shit and will ALWAYS be below Michigan. Fuck all of you classless, toothless, pieces of dog shit. I've never met a bigger bag of dicks then anybody who calls themselves an Ohioan. H-O... M-O.

Spoken like a true Michigan Man. It is nice to see a member of the fan base that always brags about their "superior" education demonstrate the proper use of capitalization, hyphenation and adverbs. By the way, that blue vest looks stunning, thank you for the greeting but I know where the milk aisle is.

Please try and make me feel bad about two middle fingers after a fight that started with a 9 vs. 1 scUM circle (and a bunch of scUM fans then yelling at our guys like they did something to start it) around Wilson. They wouldn't even let him stand up. The fact that more of their players didn't get tossed was complete and utter crap.

Marcus has been instructed by Ohio State to stop signing the photo.  You can see that Sports Possessions has cancelled Marcus from their signing list on Feb. 22nd.  Give me a beer and some popcorn for this one...

I had a feeling something like this might happen. Hell, when I ordered it, a part of me wondered if I'd ever actually see mine at all. Thankfully, it came in the mail today.

I can safely commence the treasuring, doofy spelling and all.

Just make sure to use a red permanent marker to do the spelling correction.  :)
