    I expect tOSU to come out with a huge amount of intensity...............JT will have them ready to play regardless of the situation...............

    If you want a good laugh head on over to the PSU board. They are clearly obsessive about tOSU. They have close to 5 seperate threads going about us.

    This one as well... Scout.com: O$U is Dirty

    I find it hilarious they are calling us "cheaters."

    Penn State fans should be the last group of fans to judge considering their issues the last 5 years............

    If the NCAA would have suspended the Tat 5 for the Sugar Bowl, we wouldn't be talking about this............the NCAA makes everything worse in my opinion............who the heck is making decisions over there.................their motivation is money and tv ratings...........not the appropriate punishment for the players.................

    I agree with JN. I think the suspension gets reduced as well!

    Basketball Junkie......

    See my earlier posts on why I think this team is fine for the bowl game!

    jthero...............so if they all said they were coming back, then you could believe their apology was sincere? That is ridiculous in my opinion............in my opinion this whole situation has been overblown. They broke an NCAA rule, not a state or federal law. 5 games is to much, a punishment should be imposed and in my opinion they will get the 5 games reduced.

    Pryor was a 18 year old kid who made a mistake...........along with the other 5 players............I think coming back next year has nothing to do with this situation in my opinion, they stood up in front of Buckeye nation and apologized............lets give them a chance to redeem themselves...........

    Oh by the way..............Pryor will be returning.............

    These kids made a mistake and are paying for it everyday.............its time we get behind them and help them become better men, so the next time they make the right decision...........

    I'm not going to say that I forgive these guys, but I totally buy that they regret what they did. Even before they got in trouble. If they didn't realize they made a mistake two years ago they would've kept selling their gear.

    As for starting them in the Sugar Bowl and beyond... I'm glad I don't have to make that decision. But I would likely be very tough on all of them.

    Regardless of whether I ever forgive them or not, this wasn't a serious crime, and does not make them bad people. So long as their wearing the scarlet and gray I will root for their success and trust that Jim Tressel knows these guys much better than I do. And I strongly believe that Tress would never go against his morals for the outcome of a football game.

    This press conference was a good PR move. These guys and the school have handled the situation as well as can be expected.

    Ohio State Jersey stores should immediately put numbers 1, 2 and 8 on the same list as 13.

    Lou Holtz and Mark May were debating the punishment on ESPN yesterday when I heard this:

    Holtz: Why shouldn't they be able to sell it? It's their stuff! Heck, back at Kent State
    we used to steal socks and sell them to the Fraternity brothers.
    May: I can't believe you just said that!

    ROFLMFAO!!!!

    JT held a morning presser in NOLA this morning..............

    Comments in reference to the suspensions............

    -JT said is was unanimous that the family stay intact for the bowl game.
    (Seniors voted 24-0 for all players to play)

    -JT indicated susepended players were required to decide to return for their senior seasons before being allowed to play in the bowl.

    -Players will not answer questions about the NCAA infractions due to the appeal process that is ongoing.

    -Tressel said suspended players would not be here today if they had not pledged to return for next season.

    JT has them in a corner and they have to option but to return to tOSU. If the reverse and go to the draft, that is another character question on them.
