These players who committed these infractions owe the university,coaches,fellow teammates,and last but certainly not least their fans,their best effort in the upcoming Sugar Bowl game!Then,if I never see them again,or see them play another game for the Bucks,that is fine with me.Those players who sold their awards,gold pants,and uniforms have shown absolutely no loyalty to anybody except themselves!I know what those huge tatoos cost,so I doubt that little,if any,money was left to send home to 'mamma' after the items were sold.Upon seeing that large block 'O' on Pryors arm,I hope that he can have a constant reminder to look at every day and wonder what might have been!GO BUCKS!

Let's let the new players come in and compete for the starting jobs in the Spring.Then we can just reload the Buckeyes with the players that want to play.By the time we have to play Michigan State,I think that we can field a very decent team!GO BUCKS!

Bauserman will do just fine as long as the O-Line protects him. Bauserman is fairly accurate and has great mechanics. Bucks can switch it up and give Guiton some playing time in run-option sequences.

Ron -
gain some perspective. These are 20 year olds who made a mistake. They don't owe us anything. They earned the trinkets and the accomplishments far outweigh any trophy/ring given as a reward. They busted their tails in practice/games and treated us to some fantastic brand of football for three years. Give em a break.

Pryor owes it to his team to returnnext year . A he is no way ready for the NFL B he has promised to return. Mean what you say say what you mean .

TP is more or less a disappointment this season. His arm did not develop as was expected. His deliveries reminds a shotput throw. The rushing has suffered a great deal too. Coming to receiving, Posey is certainly not one of the best out there. Herron is already speculated to enter NFL. So, realistically, what do we have to lose?

Bauserman? Oh, no. Every time he has gone in he has looked pathetic and stiff and shows the same bad judgement in throwing right into the defender's hands. Better let the youngsters have a chance because they are the future. Pryor can go ahead and leave and have his short, unsuccessful career in the NFL. Maybe he and his hero, Vick, can start a dogfighting ring together. They can compare tattoos.

Herron is not indispenaable. We can do fine with the others. Really sorry to see he was involved in that group of dumbasses though. I thought he was better than that.

Devier Posey? Who needs him? Adams? Just when he was making something of himself he had to go blow it. Nice knowing you, Mike.

Solomon? Who needs him?

QB - Open competition. I'm excited to see if Braxton Miller can learn the system quickly and use his god given talent to become a player early. Also I would like to see Guitton get an opportunity and see what he can do.

RB - Boom can go. I'm excited about Berry, Hall, Smith and Hyde. We are loaded at RB.

WR - Do we have a chance of getting Duron Carter back for the 2011 season?

It's time to cut the cord and dismiss them now. Take who's left and go to the Sugar Bowl and do this the right way! Let's not be an Auburn and play the game with those who are true Buckeyes. In my opinion the request for an appeal is a crime. Face it folks, Pryor has never developed in Columbus like he would have under other coaches. It's the way it is for now and the system in place at OSU. It will be interesting if Tressel does what needs to be done. Send them home and move on!

I'm not worried. Tressel always has us ready to play.

Duron Carter already said he is not coming back to OSU. The coaches told him he has to do a few things and I guess he didn't do them. He is looking at Oklahoma, Oregon and other schools.

Don't forget we have to replace Hazell and maybe Fickell also before the start of training camp in August.

I've seen Braxton Miller play, and he is good. He took Wayne to the Div.1 state championships. Looks alot like TP, but better. Let them all go.... they dont deserve to wear the scarlet and gray. Cant believe they would sell their "trinkets" (as Tom put it. seriously- "trinkets" ??) Tom - what kind of fan are you? The gold pants, etc. are far more than "trinkets".

Obvioulsly the huge loss will be Pryor's experience and all-around talent, although Posey and Admams are standouts too. And losing Adams costs needed depth. I am guessing they may not even be able to practice with the team -- I dont know.

Good as Herron is, OSU is so loaded at that position it really dosent matter.

As for those bashing the four in trouble, they sold their own f-ing rings. Whose business is it if they did? I find the punishments so harsh as to be off the wall.

If Tress starts Bauserman at QB, I'll be reading a lot of novels next Fall. All the other b-u QBs look pretty decent, even (dare I say it) as good or better than Pryor. I like all the other fill-in choices, maybe even better than the current players.
