Last week's news that several Buckeyes were being investigated by the NCAA for exchanging autographs for free tattoos was laughable.
But now the Buckeyes have been hit with much more serious charges.
Five players -- Terrelle Pryor, Mike Adams, DeVier Posey, Daniel Herron, and Solomon Thomas -- will be suspended for the first five games of 2011 for selling awards, gifts, and university apparel.
For his part, Pryor will have to repay $2,500 for selling his 2008 Big Ten championship ring, a 2009 Fiesta Bowl sportsmanship award and his 2008 Gold Pants, a gift from the university.
Pryor Adams, Herron, and Posey are eligible for the NFL Draft and could opt to skip their senior seasons -- and their suspensions.

With Stanford's upset over Notre Dame and Ohio State's big win over rival Michigan in The Game, the playoff field has narrowed to the existing top four plus Michigan State, Ohio State, Stanford, and potentially North Carolina.
