Terrelle Pryor and four other Ohio State teammates have been suspended next season for selling championship rings, jerseys and awards. They also received improper benefits from a tattoo parlor.

The outrage in all of this is that Pryor and his teammates have so little integrity that they hocked their Big Ten championship rings for a few thousand bucks. Pryor sold his 2008 Big Ten championship ring, Fiesta Bowl sportsmanship award, and a pair of pants. If the NCAA really wanted to send a message they would make him academically ineligible in addition to making him pay back $2,500.

It's a sad state of affairs in America these days. Primadonna athletes like Pryor have lost touch with their predecessors and don't care about anything except for ESPN highlights, money, women, and fast cars. That's the life of an athlete anymore. Then you have their supporters crying about how college coaches make millions, while the players make no money. That's what they agreed to! They get a free ride and get to prepare for being professional players. In what world is that considered usery? I guess in the world of an entitled, self-absorbed athlete with no intelligence.

Football legends such as Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, and Vince Lombardi must be rolling over in their graves.
