Add former LB Brian Rolle to the list of Ohio St. Buckeyes athletes who've added anecdotal evidence of there being a booming automotive distribution industry in Columbus. The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles draft pick told ESPN Radio he was offered a better deal on a car in 2009.
But did he really accuse Ohio State of doing anything in particular here? Here's the quote:
Somebody actually offered me a car and I said no. I bought a 2002 VW Jetta in '09 and someone offered to give me another car, a better car, and cheaper, and being the type of a person I am I said no to it because I wasn't raised to do something like that.
He goes on to defend Jim Tressel and Terrelle Pryor. You can take his quote a number of ways, and with everything else allegedly going on around the football program, there's one really obvious way to take it. I sort of think he's trying to defend the integrity of the Ohio State student-athlete, as if to say this sort of thing happens but players opt not to take part. That's one interpretation.
