That's the car that Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor showed up to a team meeting at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Monday night. It's a Nissan 350z with temporary tags. Which is a pretty, shall we say, gutsy move by Pryor to make considering that only hours before a report surfaced that he was the subject of an NCAA investigation directly related to the amount of cars that Pryor has been seen riding around Columbus in.

While I can't be sure of the year model that car is, a quick Google search for a 2010 Nissan 350z showed the price to generally be in the $30,000 range. I also found some 2009 models for about $27,000. Good thing the car's registered to his mother, Thomasina Pryor; so that settles all controversy, right? Right? Oh boy.

CBS needs to take this camera and go to some other universites and take pictures of what their athletes are driving.  I guarauntee it's the same story there.  Anyone that thinks this is an OSU problem only needs to step out of their glass house and take a deep breath of fresh air.

Good post Winning!! I am by no means an OSU fan and do believe they will get the correct punishment to fit the infractions, but I also believe that the NCAA need a MAJOR overhaul. The only reason they are coming down on their favorite son (OSU) as hard as they are is because of the Justice Departments probe into their practices on subjects like the BSC series. If this had happened 5 years ago (and looking at the current evidence it was happening) then this would probably get no more than a slap on the wrist if it ever was even brought to light. 
We will now be looking at much harsher penalties for much small infractions for all other institutions because of this. Its getting to where a student athlete cant borrow a pencil in class without the NCAA calling it an illegal I hope I am wrong but I see dark clouds in the future for many Universitys if the NCAA does not do some house cleaning to its rules and staff..

OK, so it's an 06 350z. there's one for Sale online for $11,900... AGAIN, this car is less expensive than HALF of the cars on campus at Ohio State....  The kid drives a $12k car... really?  There's something wrong with that?  And he trades it in in the winter for a $10k chevy tahoe... Seriously now.. The Media is hyping so much more than whats actually going on.  Oh, and +100 on the South Park Episode..

For a visual understanding of "Winning!!"'s post, South Park did an episode that correlates with his statement...of course done with South Park humor. Wink

The NCAA are slave drivers!  They offer scholarships to kids that would not have been able to go to college otherwise(some, not all) and get to play a sport they love!  This is the Narcissistic view they have!  Meanwhile, these kids make billions playing sports for the univerisities and the NCAA!!!  The best thing that could happen is to revamp or rid of the greedy, slave driving devils that control the millions of student athletes!!
There are millions of example of bias but one that made me really see the light.  Jeremy Bloom, a Olympic skier, gotten endorsements to ski in the olympics and was also a good football player for the Univ. of Colorado.  The NCAA decided they rule Blooms life and made him choose between football and skiing!  I thought going to school was about diversity, being active, going out playing sports, joining clubs, fraternities, learning team work and discipline.   Then, Ohio State, gets to play 5 guys in the bowl game and get suspended for the first 5 games(will be more now, but never should have been able to play in a bowl game).  I think all the money for making the bowl game, the money won should be taken back and the 2010 season wiped from the records, any awards taken back and heavy heavy sanctions should be levied!!!  This goes agaisnt the grain for me, but, if you gonna make rules make them for all not just who makes money!  Im not saying, Im just saying...What happen to Maurice Clarrett sounds very similar to this issue with Pryor driving multiple cars!  Clarrett spoke out so not only did Ohio Sttate want him out, so did the NCAA, hence, the entire thing was brushed under teh rug!  Tressel is sleaze used car salesman!  Scumbag!

BCR1.. great post. 

I can't stand OSU, but I do not like seeing any program going through this because I fear  (as any fan should) that my school (Florida) could fall into the same problems at any point in time.  Any fan of a large school should always have an understanding that their school could be next. 

OSU got caught this time and will likely take a large penalty...  they will recover in time and be back to the power they were these last few years.  Next year (or the year after) another school will be in the same situation.  It would be nice to see that fans realize that and stop talking smack when another school gets caught.  Some (a lot) OSU fans did it when USC was caught and now look...

Go Gators.

I don't understand the reference to Bobby Petrino leaving the Falcons and how that compares in any way to the situation at Ohio State.  That was a coach leaving a bunch of highly paid NFL players three weeks before the end of a season and everyone loses their mind.  These are players that hold out for more money during contracts and will almost never show loyalty during free agency because they will leave for more money.  They understand that the NFL is a business and Petrino wanted out because it wasn't for him and couldn't wait to the end of the season or he would have missed out on the job he wanted.  It is far worse to watch a coach of a college team walk out on a bunch of players he recruited to go somewhere else but they all do it.  Therefore it is a completely different situation than NCAA violations at a school. 

Now comparing it to Auburn and USC makes a lot of sense and my biggest problem with the NCAA is the lack of anything being done to Cam Newton or Auburn for the complete bull that is the pay for play scandal.  How great is it the you can try to sale your kid to a school and if they don't pay you can send him to a competitor and he can win every major award in college football without any repercussions because all he has to do is say he didn't know you did it.  Then everyone seems to get off with no problem.  Auburn got a NCAA title, Cam Newton went number one in the draft (I guess he didn't have any character issues even though he got booted from Florida and then in the middle of this fiasco since the media likes his smile) and now the Newton family can legally get all the money for selling their wannabe icon son.

Good job with that one NCAA.  I guess we learned that your ok until the players themselves get caught taking the freebies and then please stop being so stupid as to lie about it.
