Those headphones are a few hundred dollars. This is not a car or something. Can someone have a friend who is not a booster? Would the result have been different if the present was a $300 winter jacket or some ties and dress shirts instead of headphones?
Agreed with Brashbuck on the self-policing thing. If OSU and the Big 10 had done nothing in response to this, it would have ended up as nothing.
Also agreed on the inequities in reporting all of this. Last night, ESPN could not get enough of Johnny Manziel. He was the savior of college football and the symbol for all that is good in the world. I don't remember Terelle Pryor being treated the same way. And I doubt Noah Spence will get favorable press for this.
