Ohio State To Respond To NCAA Allegations Friday

Ohio State is scheduled  to submit its reply by Friday to the NCAA against charges of major violations that led to coach Jim Tressel's resignation and the departure of quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

AD Gene Smith says the school has answered all outstanding questions related to the charges and violations.

He said Ohio State had worked hard to answer all the questions stemming from charges that football players received cash and discounted tattoos from a local businessman and that Tressel had covered up his knowledge of the NCAA violations.

Athletic department spokesman Dan Wallenberg said the school will publicly release the response on Monday after redacting the names of student-athletes from the official document.

Once that reply is submitted, the school will next have a hearing on August 12 before the NCAA Committee on Infractions. Following that, the NCAA will rule on the matter within 1-2 months. Penalties could include, but are not limited to, a postseason ban that could start immediately, forcing the Buckeyes to miss out on the Big Ten's inaugural championship game.
