Pryor Suspended 5 Games In 2011

By: Mike Vukovcan

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Ohio State quarterback and former Jeannette star Terrelle Pryor previously said he planned on returning to Ohio State for his senior season. Today, he might have to rethink his decision.

Pryor and four of his teammates must sit out the first five games of the 2011 season for selling awards, gifts and university apparel and receiving improper benefits in 2009, the NCAA has determined.

In addition to missing five games next season, Pryor, Mike Adams, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey and Solomon Thomas must repay money and benefits ranging in value from $1,000 to $2,500.

The repayments must be made to a charity.

The NCAA is allowing the five players to play in the Jan. 4 Sugar Bowl.

According to the ruling, Pryor must repay $2,500 for selling his 2008 Big Ten championship ring, a 2009 Fiesta Bowl sportsmanship award and his 2008 Gold Pants, a gift from the university. is reporting that Pryor’s HS coach, Ray Reitz, said Terrelle was “trying to help his mother.”

Based on this ruling, I find it real hard to believe Pryor will come back to Ohio State for just seven games. It’s probably time to start getting paid legally by the NFL.

    He shouldn’t be “stax mad paper” in college. That is why he is suspended now.

    You do realize there is an “i” in girl?

    I grew up in NE Ohio 25 minutes from where Clarett played high school ball and 30 miles from where Lebron played high school ball and this sort of thing continues because there is no deterent in the system. Cam Newtons’ situation was cleaned up before the S. Carolina game and televised Heisman show and these guys should not be allowed to compete in this upcoming bowl game. Taking the Heisman away from Bush is apparently not enough incentive and Tressel show take action and keep these guys home and turn it into a six (6) game suspension.

    Terrelle, I’m just an unathletic dentist and font know all of the ramifications that exist here but if it were me I would tell the NCAA and Ohio State to shove it (you know where). I wouldn’t play in the bowl game in case of injury and go pro now. They dont care one little bit about you or your family and use you and the other athletes for the money you can make them. Think about you and yours this holiday season. Good luck and God bless.

    You can take the boy out of the getto but you cant take the getto out of the boy. $2,500 for a 2008 Big Ten championship ring. I could have got you at least 5,000
