10:17 AM ET 07.09 | Ohio State vacated its 2010 season yesterday as part of increasing sanctions for rules violations under former coach Jim Tressel. The process of vacating can be murky. People still remember the games, even though Ohio State won't count them. Individual and team statistics from 2010 will still be counted, but wins, losses and championships won't. Even though the record book won't show Bryant Browning's Big Ten title, his ring will. The Buckeyes already have received their Big Ten championship rings, and athletic director Gene Smith said they won't be recalled.

Say what you want, your teams still suck. They were under-talented and under-coached. If you want a welfare win, then congrats. You can't change what happened on the field.
