08:25 AM ET 12.27 | The Buckeyes returned to Columbus Sunday and met as a team for the first time since six players were suspended by the NCAA for the start of next season. According to two team sources, that meeting included an apology from the players involved and a discussion by the seniors on whether those suspended should play in the Sugar Bowl, as the NCAA has ruled they are allowed to do. According to sources, the suspended players are scheduled to travel with the team to New Orleans, but the final decision on what happens to quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back Dan Herron, receiver DeVier Posey, left tackle Mike Adams, backup defensive end Solomon Thomas and backup linebacker Jordan Whiting obviously lies with Ohio State coach Jim Tressel. One source said one scenario could include the sanctioned Buckeyes playing in the Sugar Bowl, but perhaps not starting.

Hmmm, guess we'll beat this again today.

Did Pryor trade free tattoos for their forgiveness?

If so will he trade up to get Luck. I bet the Panthers could be talked out of the #1 pick when they already spent last year's pick on a QB.

Pryor said. "But coach Tress is a classy guy." .....Really?
A "classy" guy would have a standard and impose it himself regardless of the consequences. It would not take a silly wait until next year approach from some other authority, he would sit their a##es down now.

Good question OT. If he wants to coach in the pros, the question is which team would he want? Hell, the NFC West (niners) might be the best place to go! Don't have to be too good to make the playoffs.

Plus Harbaugh gets the chance to beat Carroll 2x a year. ;)

It must be tempting...

... but, I still believe Michigan is a better fit for Jim.

The success enjoyed by Harbaugh/Luck at Stanford would probably not translate to similar results in Frisco.

It's quite different coaching grown men who make just as much (or more) than the coach as opposed to coaching teenagers that have to hide their earnings lol

The "What's Your Deal" Series. They could start using Roman numerals to indicate which game in the series you're referencing, like the Super Bowl does.

There are those who say coaching kids is much easier than coaching rich pros. And certainly you can look at Pete Carroll and Steve Spurrier and make that assumption. On the flip side, though, in College you don't get days off. You're working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and twice on Sundays. During the offseason you're not coaching, you're recruiting. You become a stranger to your own family because they only see you for a few minutes a day. College Football has even proven to jeopardize one's health because it's so stressful and the pace of work is so constant and unrelenting. So there are upsides and downsides to either option.

Why are you "grinched" Gator Robster?
