Just on ESPN; a couple of columnist spoke with Thaddeus Gibson and Gibson says the coaches told the players clearly that they could not sell items when he was a player at Ohio State. Important about this is that Gibbson was a linebacker at OSU from 2007 to 2009, and according to OSU's AD Gene Smith OSU did not tell players during this period that they could sell items. Considering Gibson has no reason to lie, I call BS on Gene Smith. Good for Gibson for being honest. One more reason to hate Ohio State and sweater-scum.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
