|Terrelle paid $3.50 for this vehicle much to the dismay of Chef's dad.|
Ohio State's director of compliance is reviewing at least 50 car sales to Buckeyes athletes and relatives to see if they met NCAA rules, The Columbus Dispatch reported Saturday.
-Wanna bet that they don't? I could say that if this were 5 or 10 car sales, it could be a coincidence, but 50? I think not. Much props to the Dispatch on this though. They keep digging and digging. They could take the easy way out like The Fan did by hiring only yes-men who never say anything bad about Ohio State and provide nothing but dickless and boring coverage. But they do not. And I respect that. Insert weekly "Demetrius Stanley is god awful" remark IN MY OWN OPINION!
The Dispatch reported that a car salesman who received game passes from Ohio State athletes handled many of the deals at two different dealerships. Ohio State has since taken the salesman, Aaron Kniffin, off the pass list.
-I think it's pretty fair to assume that when you become a college football player at a big program, you want to make sure that your family can always watch you play. And if your family or close friends can't make it, the next best option is to give those comp tickets to your car salesman who apparently charged you the full sticker price? Yep, that makes sense. Nothing to see here. Always got to take care of your car salesman.
Athletes are prevented from receiving special deals not available to other students. They are not permitted to trade autographs for discounts. Both dealerships display signed Ohio State memorabilia in their showrooms.
-Case closed. Now we know why we see college football players always driving big ass SUVs eventhough they have no job and no source of income and usually come from lower income families. Shady dealerships are willing to sell them Escalades for $100 as long as they can put a signed photo of them on their wall. This has to happen everywhere but I don't care about everywhere right now. I care about this program getting what they deserve. Banishment to NAIA!
One car, a 2-year-old Chrysler 300 with fewer than 20,000 miles, was titled to then-sophomore defensive player Thaddeus Gibson in 2009. Documents show the purchase price as $0. Gibson said he did not know why the title showed a zero for the purchase price and said he was still paying for the car.
-Thaddeus, the title said "$0" on it because you paid "$0" for it. That's how the concept of "free" works. I could maybe understand forgetting a digit if it's supposed to say 20,000 and you put 200,000 instead. But zero? And I suppose that he could still be paying for that car. "Nothing" is sort of a payment, right?
School officials have seen no evidence of players getting special treatment in vehicle sales, Douglas Archie, associate athletic director for compliance, said in a statement Saturday.
-Really? Can we bring in commenter Daniel for this? Daniel, tell us about the sort of nice rides that these kids are driving and fill us in on how they afford it. Personally, out of all the people that I knew in college, not one of them had really nice cars. Why? Because normal college kids don't have the funds to go buying new Tahoes. Doug Archie can eat shit. Fire him, too.
The mother and brother of Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor also purchased cars from the dealerships. Kniffin loaned his own car to Pryor for a three-day test drive to Pryor's home in Jeannette, Pa.
-Hoo boy, here we go again. We'll just ignore how this Kniffin cat just gave his car to the biggest loser on the planet for a weekend with apparently no strings attached. How about this: we have been lead to believe that Pryor was selling his stuff to a drug dealer because his family was poor and he was trying to help out or save Christmas or some other lie. Well, the Pryor's apparently aren't poor enough for new cars! And you would think that there would be at least one reliable and reputable dealership between Columbus and western PA. Why drive over three hours to buy a car? BECAUSE THEY WERE GETTING SHIT FOR FREE, ASSHOLES! This is how the Pryor Family works!
Kniffin and the owner of one of the dealerships he worked for, Jason Goss, have attended seven football games as guests of players, including the 2007 national championship game and the 2009 Fiesta Bowl.
-Again, there is absolutely zero reason for a college football player to do this for a car salesman and dealership owner unless their backs had already been scratched. It doesn't take an idiot to figure this out.
I can add. So can you. If Terrelle Pryor is attached to something, you can bet your ass that it's sketchy. This is wrong and it is high fucking time that the NCAA finally slaps that "lack of institutional control" tag on Ohio State. I'm too smart to speak for Fuckeye fans, but I've got to think that the majority of them just want to get the full punishment out of the way, have all of those responsible get fired, move on, and fit as many penises in their mouth as they can fit. And while many of you probably are starting to grow tired of my constant posts about the Fuckeye program, well, if these dickheads would just keep their noses clean for more than two weeks, maybe we wouldn't keep beating this dead horse. Or if the NCAA did the right thing, too. Terrelle Pryor is the The Truth or the GOAT still, right?
