Summary of both stories:

They mentioend this during the Boise State game last night, that some Ohio State players were exchanging tattoos for signed memorabilia, which is an NCAA violation.

The 5 players will be suspended for 5 games at the start of next year, but should play in the upcoming Sugar Bowl.

The five players are:

QB Terrelle Pryor
OT Mike Adams
WR DeVier Posey
RB Daniel "Boom" HErron
DE Solomon Thomas

The reports are that all 5 juniors will declare for this year's draft rather than face the suspension, which of course would probably hurt their stock.

Adams IMO is probably the best pro prospect today with the potential IMO to be a 1st round pick as an RT, but should at least be a 2nd rounder. Pryor unless he has some great workouts in the off-season is probably looking at being a 4th round pick right now. Herron could be a 3rd/4th round guy as well, and he's likely to be a good guy to shine in off-season workouts. Some people have Posey rated as a potential 1st rounder next year, but I see him more as a 3rd rounder today. He's too much like Brandon LaFell if you ask me to merit that high a pick. Don't know much about Thomas, he's a backup I think and would be lucky to get drafted.

What the methodology of letting them play in the bowl, but then suspend for 5 games. Doesn't the bowl game mean more, esp a Sugar?
