Five key Ohio State players were suspended for five games in the 2011-2012 season for selling items that they had won and they used to money to go get tattoos.
Junior quarterback Terrelle Pryor was the headliner of this story but leading rusher Dan "Boom" Herron, #2 Wide Receiver Devier Posey, All-Big Ten Offensive Tackle Mike Adams and Back up Defensive End Solomon Thomas were all also involved.
This could be an even bigger loss for the Buckeyes than what it already is. You could possibly see Terrelle Pryor, Devier Posey, Dan Herron and Mike Adams all leave for the draft this year instead of going through the 5 game suspension next season. These are four out of maybe 7 or so key players for next season's team and they may not be playing for the Buckeyes next season at all.
In my opinion the only reason that they may stick around is because of the possible lockout for the 2011-2012 NFL season.
All five will be allowed to participate in the Sugar Bowl game on December 4th vs the Arkansas Razorbacks.
What they sold and the penalties:
