Report: Ohio State To Be Punished With One-Year Bowl Ban And Increased Scholarship Loss

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio State University will be punished with a one-year postseason play ban following the 2012 season.

The NCAA will also strip the school of four football scholarships over the next three years, on top of the five scholarships which Ohio State has already forfeited as a form of self-punishment over the same span. According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Buckeyes will also have an additional year of probation on top of the two-years of probation the school self-imposed earlier this year.

Jim Tressel will reportedly be handed a show-cause penalty, according to the paper, which means that any school that may choose to hire him in the future could be subject to sanctioned themselves.

The punishments stem from a controversy which occurred last season when it came to light that several Ohio State football players, including then star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, were selling their awards and equipment to a tattoo-parlor owner. Initially just the players were punished for the infractions, 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.
