INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ohio State's day in court has ended. Now it must wait for a month or two to find out the verdict.
A memorabilia-for-cash scandal that led to player suspensions, coach Jim Tressel's forced resignation and the departure of star quarterback Terrelle Pryor led ultimately to Ohio State's hearing before the NCAA's committee on infractions on Friday. Ohio State and NCAA officials, along with Tressel, were accompanied by a cadre of lawyers. They entered a downtown hotel's security-guarded ballroom at 8:30 a.m. Except for a short mid-morning break, they continued for four hours before the meeting ended.
Now Ohio State must wait 6 to 8 weeks to find out its penalties.
