Ohio State University. In it's pride and glory, it had a fantastic football program. Until 9 days ago, the embattled Jim Tressel resigned amid the growing scandal that is over taking the OSU program.
Now, the fate of their star QB, Terrelle Pryor, is now clear that he's leaving OSU and enter the supplemental NFL draft. Link:http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/blog/dr_saturday/post/Terrelle-Pryor-face-of-the-Buckeyes-bids-farew?urn=ncaaf-wp2316
Like any football program in a college or university, OSU's program has been destroyed and is facing an uncertain future and questioning where do they go after this mess?
Many of the rival college teams are finally looking at OSU as ripe for teaching OSU a lesson for all the years that coach Tressel has done to them. OSU could experience a season where every game is counted as a loss and missing it's first bowl game ever.
But OSU should look at it as a lesson to learn for the surviving players who remain to learn with a new to be named coach soon.
OSU should be thankful that their program isn't over, but under renovation for it's future. Perhaps now they'll play some honest football games and learn properly. Who knows?
Will OSU come out better? Or worse? What ever happens and who OSU hires to be the next football coach, that person will have to make new traditions and teach players new plays. May OSU hire a good coach. But brace for this fall. When their rivals come to play or they go to them, pack extra first aid kits. They may need them pretty much.
Till next post, I'll clue you in.
