Pryor follows Tressel’s Lead
In just a matter of eight days, the Ohio State football team, unarguably a powerhouse, has lost it’s head coach, offensive coordinator, it’s starting quarterback and team captain due to the back-to-back departures of Jim Tressel and Terrelle Pryor. What started as a rumor about tattoos advanced into mass speculation of receiving what the NCAA calls ‘improper benefits’, heightened to a 5-game suspension, and culminated in the stepping down of debatable the two most crucial pieces of Ohio State football team. What’s next for the highly talented QB? If this would have taken place in any other year, Pryor would he heading to the NFL supplemental draft,but with the NFL lockout looming, chances are the 21-year old will be forced to the Canadian Football league where he will play alongside other NFL rejects. The future seemed very bright for Pryor, Tressel and the Buckeyes next season but after months of a downward spiral, new head coach Luke Fickell’s inherited job seems even that much gloomier.
