Maybe you and Maurice can play ARENA ball together. I am very sure Jeanette, PA is really proud of you now !

You are a heck of a role model for little kids that looked up top you. My son wanted to be you.. I have already told him he wears the #2 jersey for Chris Carter... a player with class !

What you did on the day Coach Tressel resigned was unforgetable.. You have no Class at all !

To sell your memorabilia... what a slap in the face of all that have worked so hard to earn them..

Your golden ticket has been punched and you will be forgotten very soon.

Maybe the rest of your teammates will accept their punishment and be real men ! Not the coward you are...

Go Bucks !

I disagree with this article. There is no mixed legacy except to say Pryor was a below average QB and a failed human being. His name should be erased from OSU history.

Good riddance! You won't be missed no matter how many games we might lose..

No nostalga. No hanging our heads because we lost someone with talent. The guy was a bun from day one.

I hope the team responds by banding together.

Go Bucks!

It just may be if the ESPN allegations hold true, with an 0-4 record because every win got wiped out.

Doesn't surprise me either Craig. I'm in the "GOOD RIDDANCE" group. I've never been convinced of his credibility, but I've enjoyed watching those Quarterback Keepers, and those Busted Plays. He is truly a gifted athlete, as was Maurice Clarett. What Potential, WASTED. Both could have been Heisman winners, but instead, they have been horrible embarrassments to OSU. "GOOD RIDDANCE".

TP reminds me of Dan Marino without the golden arm, quick release or ability to dissect a defense. Bad plays were always someone else's fault, he would berate teammates on the field and sideline, and he never won a BCS championship. It's a team sport, TP and the best leaders lead by example.

Living in SEC Country, the Big Ten is a piker in how to cheat, etc. Ohio State gets keel hauled for a minor infraction and the SEC obfuscates a pay for play Auburn Quarterback, among others. While ESPN and the NCAA (and our Dispatch ) are analyzing an empty Barn, the horse thieves are buying and selling down South. You, and ESPN, have beat a dead horse to a pulp, chased a great Coach away and now a student. The suits have circled the wagon and sent out the women and children to be slaughtered.

I agree that there are very big differences in how the media attacks OSU and other Big Ten schools as compared to SEC schools. But make no mistake, Pryor ran himself out of OSU. Nobody else did it. He kept it under wraps for a long time and had Buckeye Nation supporting him (including myself) but spit in our faces multiple times after everything played out. I will always support any student or student athlete. But when they make a point to let everyone know they can get away with anything they want, then leave after bringing on major problems for OSU, he can stay away from OSU football for good. He is an idiot.

The most over rated player in the history of OSU football. I watched him play 2 times in HS Football and 6 times in HS Basketball. He was a true punk. A kid that should have never been recruited to OSU. My opinion comes from experience. I coached for over 25 years on the high school level. His high school coaches at Jeannette had absolutely no control over this kid. Jordan Hall coached the HS BB team. He was a true leader. PRyor was on the take when he was playing AAU basketball. Let's move on. There is nothing we can do about the past.

I do not like to kick a person when they are down, so I will not except to say, "Class always shows." I saw no class in TP.

Best wishes to Terrelle and his future. Big time college football has eaten up another phenomenal and immature athlete. I hope he realizes now that those short term benefits of stardom were not worth the price in the end, but I don't think anybody should hate the guy.

Who gives a rat's #%* about OSU football, or TP, or Gene Smith. Don't you find it strange that Gene Smith has been keeping a very low profile as of late?? What's up with that?

Let this be a lesson to the so-called adults who waste time and energy on football recruiting with its faux-scientific rankings and stilted NCAA bureaucratese (verbal, letter of intent, etc.).

These are teenagers, many of them from impoverished backgrounds and/or schools that have failed miserably to educate them. Attempting to predict or analyze their thought processes is a fool's errand. Many of these 'student-athletes' choose colleges based strictly on school colors and/or nicknames!

Let kids be kids and worry about them as college football players only if and when they qualify academically and show up in uniform on Saturday.

Great Athlete; Not so Great Attitude:

Many of us who look at our college years can attest to the fact that we were not as mature as well. Add to this the conspicuous consumption of a culture we have become, and results like this are not surprising.

I'm a huge Buckeye fan, but a critical thinker as well. While TP legacy at tOSU is indeed tarnished, a greater question is what can be done to minimize unfortunate incidents like this in the future?

I admit, it is a quagmire--yet as much as I care about winning, I also care about the development of the student athlete.

(Honestly, I believe Tres did/does as well and got caught up in the system.)

My point is this: Rather than beat up on Terelle who has parted ways and chosen his lot, let's learn from this-and channel our emotions toward creating workable solutions.

Anybody have any of those to offer?

GO BUCKS!

Are you assuming the compliance department and future coach are going to reference this forum and our ideas as to how to prevent these situations?
