Three more Ohio State players to sit

Terrelle Pryor

Ooopsie! More problems for those Buckeyes up there in Columbus, Ohio.

Three players, two of them starters will not play in the season opener/practice game this Saturday against Akron.

The reason...the apparently got some "Impermissible benefits" at a charity event earlier this year. And they had not been cleared to attend the event from the schools compliance department.

Running back Jordan Hall, cornerback Travis Howard and backup safety Corey Brown will sit at least one game and possibly more.

The incident popped up this spring when the NCAA was in the midst of investigating Terrelle Pryor. Which begs the question...why wait until now to mention it?

By now, most are already familiar with the issues facing the Buckeyes in the eyes of the NCAA, so we will spare you the details. Suffice to say, there is some work ahead. And while this latest problem is not an indication of further serious issues, it just really doesn't look to good.

Thankfully for Ohio State they play, for the most part, schools such as Akron for the first 4 or 5 games, so losing starters for a short period of time won't kill them.
