OSU Boosters and Tattoo U

Well just when we thought it was all over, now we hear that two OSU players already under suspension and scrutiny have been suspended for the Nebraska game.  Read the story Here.

Last year leading rusher Daniel Herron and top receiver DeVier Posey were set to be reinstated only to receive an additional suspension along with offensive lineman Marcus Hall.  It appears they accepted too much money for too little work during summer jobs.  These guys were hired to work at a car wash and to pick up scrap metal.  Pick up scrap metal?  What the heck does that mean?  Also, you are trying to tell me that they also dried off cars at a car wash?  Give me a break.

The real issue is not the street thugs who failed to register the summer jobs with the University, but rather the attitude and belief of the Athletic Director, Gene Smith that promotes the idea that OSU does not have a systemic problem.  

The real issue is the booster system and turning of a blind eye by the University to all the goings on. 

Let’s see………….

**  A booster who ran a drug operation out of a tattoo parlor frequently by numerous OSU players that received free and discounted tattoo’s for bringing in OSU sports memorabilia.

**  A booster who took a particular liking to Terrell Pryor and provided for him.

**  A booster who provided loaner automobiles for tickets.

**  A booster who provided summer jobs and “great pay” for who knows what in return.

The OSU Football stinks worse than a fish market.

The OSU AD needs to be fired.

The relationships between “Boosters” and OSU student athletics needs to be reined in and controlled.

The program is out of control and is a disgrace to college football.
