Ohio State To Hear NCAA Fate This Afternoon

Ohio State University will reportedly find out its punishment from the NCAA later today, according to a report from the Associated Press.

OSU athletic director Gene Smith told the AP that the NCAA committee on infractions would reveal its final sanctions on the school at 3 p.m. EST. today.

The potential punishment stems from a controversy which occurred last season when it came to light that several Ohio State football players, including star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, were selling their awards and equipment to a tattoo-parlor owner. Initially just the players were punished, but this spring leaked emails revealed that former head coach Jim Tressel was aware of the violations months before the NCAA found out about them.

Pryor and Tressel have since left the school.

The football team has already stripped itself of five scholarships over the next three seasons, vacated its 2010 season and imposed a two-year probation period among other self-imposed penalties.
