Bowls Will Be Boring for Buckeye Fans

Posted By on Tue, Dec 20, 2011 at 2:10 PM


The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that the NCAA will knock the Buckeyes out of any chance at playing bowls, Big Ten, or National Championship games next year.

The beloved OSU team will also forfeit four scholarships over the next three years; this in addition to the five already lost.

And, there's more, although the Buckeyes self-imposed a two-year probation, the NCAA will extend it for a third year.

The sanctions, expected to be announced by the NCAA today, stem from players selling memorabilia for tattoos and other goodies earlier this year.
