Ohio State Investigates Possible NCAA Infractions Involving Free Tattoos For Football Players

Ohio State is investigating allegations that several of its football players bartered tattoos in exchange for autographs.

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting Wednesday night that the school was looking into the possible violations.

Sources indicate that some sort of discipline is likely to be handed down, but it is unclear when, or to what extent. It is possible that some players may not be available for the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 4, but it's also possible that any discipline could get pushed back to the start of the 2011 regular season.

FOX 28 reports that the allegations involve "high-profile players" on the football team.

No specific players were named but when you think "high-profile," you immediately think of QB Terrelle Pryor. Pryor probably realized that as well, so he took Earth's foremost forum for legal debate...Twitter.

Case closed? Probably not.

As of right now, every player on the team is still eligible for the the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 4. Keep an eye on OSU blog Along The Olentangy for updates.
