According to 97.1 The Fan in Columbus, the NCAA has informed Ohio State University that they will be continuing their investigation. The report comes from the Common Man and the Torg show with its sources coming from former OSU football players.
More details to come once I find a print source. I know we all love to see it, but they broke the news on the radio with promise of following up on it.
EDIT: Here's the link
EDIT #2: Torg now saying he thinks PRYOR is talking in an effort to get him into the Supplemental Draft. Granted this is heresay and high speculation, but it raises some interesting questions. Mind you, Torg is the one who broke this story on air when I posted it....before it made it to ESPN.
EDIT #3: 97.1 NOW REPORTING THAT THE SIGNING OF MEMORABILIA DID NOT STOP AFTER OSU "PUT THE CABOSH ON IT!" This is getting unbelievable! Torg says booster involved is from Northwest Ohio. They are livid! Tune in and laugh your ass off.
Gordon Gee had this to say:
Ordinarily, I would post this as an MGoBoard topic. But some adroit and observant MGoBloggers may notice that I lack sufficient points to do so.
While browsing my way across the internet, I uncovered this article in the Washington Post. It is an investigation into the Washington Redskins ticket contract policies and their subsequent lawsuits against certain season ticket holders in breach of those policies.
The substance of the article is secondary to its procedures. Frankly, the Washington Post puts on a clinic for investigative sports journalists such as [NAME REDACTED].
In the process of investigating, the Washington Post shows how to appropriately conduct an investigation. They name their sources, ask similar institutions about their policies, conduct detailed research, provide alternate theses (to a degree), and limit their inflammatory accusations (leaving the reader to draw conclusions from the Posts evidence). They even give the Redskins an opportunity to refute some of the allegations.
Frankly, it was refreshing to see an effective and fairly unbiased piece of investigative journalism, especially after the travesties of the [NAME REDACTED] Press.
At this point, I’m forced to continue writing in order to meet the 200 word limit. If only I had the necessary MGoPoints to post this on the board.
