The NCAA not quite done yet with Ohio State?

Oops! It seems that Ohio State is reportedly not quite out of the woods when it comes to the NCAA. ESPN is reporting that the school received a letter indicating that the football program is still under investigation. ESPN speculates the investigation relate to incidents involving disgraced former Buckeye quarterback Terrelle Pryor that appeared on...wait for it...ESPN.

"Among the reports since then: an ESPN "Outside The Lines" story alleging that former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was paid thousands of dollars in exchange for signed gear by local memorabilia collector, photographer and Buckeyes fan Dennis Talbott; an "OTL" report about Pryor and other Buckeyes playing free rounds of golf with Talbott at a Columbus-area country club; and a Columbus Dispatch report that scrutinized dozens of automobile sales to Ohio State athletes and family members from a pair of Columbus-area dealerships."

This could be at best base less rumor. Or baseless rumor with the taint of narcissistic self promotion as only a division of Disney could provide. At worse, Buckeye fans might have a few more sleepless nights.
