Ohio State Ends Investigation Into Buckeye Players' Car Deals

In the wake of this week's announcement that the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles found no improprieties in 25 car purchases made by Terrelle Pryor and other Buckeye football players, Ohio State has announced it's punting on the university's own inquiry. The Associated Press has more details, including a statement from OSU that had better not come back to haunt them:

"We have seen no evidence that would lead us to believe that Ohio State student athletes violated any policies when purchasing used cars," said university spokesman Jim Lynch.

And that's great, unless they missed something, which would only hurt the university's standing with the Committee on Infractions. In addition to the test drives mentioned in yesterday's update, there are still a couple more ways this thing could go sideways for the Buckeyes; namely, that the BMV's investigation didn't give the Bureau access to players' financial records. Our Ohio State blog, however, is just happy for the moment to have at least part of this whole mess over and done with.
