An Inked Deal

Finally!!! It has happened.  Terrelle Pryor finally got involved in an improper benefits scandal.  Once I saw that TP was going to be a Buckeye I just asked myself, "When will this blue chip fuck up and get caught receiving some cash?".  They all do it.  I am convinced they are all getting paid.  There is just too much money being made by the school and every school has alumni that doesn't care what it will take or cost but they WILL take care of theirs.  It took a little longer than expected, though.  I thought he would've  been busted taking something before his sophomore year.  It's not to say that he didn't, he just didn't get caught until now. 

What I don't get is why out of all the ammenities he probably had access to, why the fuck would Pryor along with the other culprits take free tattoos in exchange for autographed memorbilia?  I mean he couldn't land an ipad or an Armani suit or somthing?  I mean free ink?  That's pretty ridiculous right there.  I bet it was something lame like a football with flames following it with the script "Big Dawg Quarterback" or something stupid like that.  According to the New York Daily News, Terrelle Pryor and Co. didn't know they were in violation of any rules when they sold the merchandise to the tattoo parlor.  Oh, kind of how Cam Newton wasn't aware that his dad was soliciting his son's services for $200k?

The New York Daily News then proceeds to report that these players are permitted to play in the Sugar Bowl because they weren't aware of any violations being done.  Fucking NCAA.  Just bending the rules so they can make their money.  Everyone knows that Bowl game would be a joke if Ohio State played Arkansas with 4 of their top offensive players out of the game.  I don't even know who that fucking Solomon whatever his last name is, but Terrelle Pryor, Devier Posey, Mike Adams, and Boom Herron pretty much is their entire offense.  You take them away and put OSU against ANY SEC team and you're looking at a Varsity team playing a freshmen team.  Who would want to watch that?  Nobody.  Who would want to advertise during that game? Nobody.  Just another reason why these kids are being used as cash cows.  If you're going to make rules then enforce them for everyone.  Not just when it is convienient for your wallet.
