Before the NCAA gets a crack at O$U, some of the players are getting a chance to invoke some pain.
In case you've been living in a cave, here's a quick reminder of Ray Small's going away present delivered to Jim Tressel and Gene Smith via The Lantern. He recanted his story but then The Lantern posted the audio tapes on-line to back up their article.
Although he understands how athletes are easy targets for getting deals, Small said anyone can take advantage.
"(People say) ‘Oh you got a deal, it's because you're an athlete,'" Small said. "Playing for Ohio State definitely helps. But I know a lot of people that do nothing and get deals on their cars."
The Lantern obtained a police report from shortly after 2 a.m. on Sept. 18, 2007, when Small was arrested for a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license. According to the report, Small was driving a 2007 Chrysler 300 that he told the officer he had just purchased. The vehicle had a dealer plate on it instead of a temporary tag.
Police then received a call from Aaron Kniffin later that morning, wanting to know why the car had been impounded. Kniffin, a salesman at Jack Maxton Chevrolet, told the officer the dealership "gives a lot of coaches and faculty cars and that Mr. Small's family is purchasing the car," according to the report. Kniffin told the officer that paperwork for the car had not yet been worked out.
Now Ray Small may have set the wheels in motion for JT's removal, but what Terrelle Pryor is about to do could hurt the Buckeyes even more next season. These tweets are from an AM radio station in Ohio:
