Suits In Indianapolis (Formerly Kansas) Sleep Well Following Sugar Bowl

The Suits In Indianapolis (formerly Kansas)’s decision to delay suspensions for Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron and DeVier Posey played a major role in No. 6 Ohio State defeating eighth-ranked Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night.

Well, of course, they made the right decision since they have no jurisdiction over the bowl games (another reason why there is no D1 playoff – don’t believe us, just ask the Suits.).

Pryor passed for 221 yards and two touchdowns, including a 43-yarder to Posey late in the second quarter, and Herron rushed for a 9-yard score. Pryor was also the Buckeyes’ leading rusher with 114 rushing yards for a total offensive contribution of 335 yards.

Pryor, Herron and Posey were among five players—along with All-Big Ten offensive tackle Mike Adams and backup defensive end Solomon Thomas—who violated NCAA rules by selling memorabilia and getting discounts on tattoos.

The five will serve five-game suspensions next season if they return to the Buckeyes as they’ve pledged to do instead of entering the NFL draft.

(Future headline: “Hey, Coach Tressel, I’m going pro, sue me!”)

Ohio State (11-1) was trying to snap an 0-9 record against Southeastern Conference teams in bowl games and gain some respect for the Big Ten after a dismal performance on New Year’s Day, when the league went 0-5—including three losses to SEC schools.
