Buckeyes getting overshadowed by Paterno- NCAA "Failure to Monitor"



Hidden between the extremely dark cloud of the Penn State Sandusky-Paterno Rape Allegations, the NCAA has been handing out rulings on cases that have previously been top news. Such as Ohio State and UCF, almost as a lets hide our dirty laundry while the sports and news world is busy dealing with something that goes beyond athletics.

 

Today the NCAA slapped Ohio State with "failure to monitor". Ohio state has already declared some self imposed penalaties such as a reduction of 5 scholarships for 3 years but many expect the NCAA to hit them with bigger sanctions soon.

 

Here are some quotes from the article .....

**********************************************************************************************************************

"The Buckeyes, who were awaiting a ruling after appearing before the NCAA committee on infractions Aug. 12 for the tattoo-for-memorabilia scandal, received another notice of allegations from the NCAA on Nov. 3. Those allegations revolved around a Cleveland-area booster who provided extra benefits to players"

The NCAA alleged that DiGeronimo provided a total of $2,405 in extra benefits to nine football players. That included payments of $200 each to four players who attended a charity event in February, and five players who were overpaid a total of $1,605 for work they did not perform in summer jobs at DiGeronimo's excavation company.

DiGeronimo had been an Ohio State booster since the 1980s, when he was part of a group known as the "committeemen" who helped recruit players before such practices were outlawed.
