On November 17, 2009 Busted Coverage posted photos of Terrelle Pryor looking slightly boozy at The Little Bar in Columbus, Ohio. Said establishment is a 21 & up bar. Pryor wasn’t 21. Almost immediately the hate emails started flowing into our inbox. Ohio Sate fans promised to kick our asses, said it was a non-story and stayed totally loyal to the program. Today, Jim Tressel fell on a knife and resigned. Plenty of blame will go to Tressel, but a five-star recruit from Pennsylvania was the nail in the coffin.
Terrelle Pryor tweeted this on April 25:
In my 21 years of living. I’ve came to the conclusion that life is about over coming obstacles that it throws at us. We all have them.
It finally came to Memorial Day when the flood gates now open on the OSU football program. The coach is gone. The starting 5-tool QB who figured he’d be in the NFL by now will serve a five-game suspension. The team will most likely go on probation. The team will probably be banned from bowl games.
Vest said in a statement this morning:
“After meeting with university officials, we agreed that it is in the best interest of Ohio State that I resign as head football coach,” Tressel said in a statement the university released Monday morning. “The appreciation that Ellen and I have for the Buckeye Nation is immeasurable.”
We encourage all of you Tressel and Pryor apologists to email us and continue to tell us we are stupid, no-nothing bloggers who were wrong about Pryor and this program. Our track record speaks for itself on this subject.
