Not So Fast My Friends...

Good thing Jason put the word "Allegedly" in his post title this morning. While most of Buckeye Nation fretted over the suspension of their starting corner, Ohio State never released an official announcement, until this afternoon.

Shorty after 4pm, OSU came out with the official word and as 11W insiders, Matt and Wil, quickly pointed out, Donald Washington IS NOT suspended for the BCS game, however Eugene Clifford still is.

There were plenty of rumors as to why the suspension came down, but luckily they were just that, rumors. I hope Eugene did nothing severe enough to cost him a potential Buckeye career, but I'm sure Tressel will handle the situation in his typical fashion, close to the Vest. I think we can all breath a sigh of relief.

Update: Now Tim May of the Dispatch is reporting this morning that Washington is appealing his earlier suspension, so we may not know full status until after Christmas. Therefore don't let that sigh if relief out just yet.
