    Is this guy just throwing OSU under the bus after the fact in an attempt to toss the NCAA a bone in exchange for an NFL Career?

    Should the NFL join hands with the NCAA and hold this guy accountable for his actions and enforce a “punishment” mentality?

    Lots of moving parts here so let me know what you think and maybe we’ll touch on it this week on the show.

    Hey Coach-
    I grew up in PA – the State Pryor is from. So I was exposed to all the press surrounding this kid since he was a sophmore in HS. He became extremely cocky, and made a mockery of the recruiting process from colleges. Point is, I watched him turn into a bad apple – and not suprised the current state of affairs is the end result.

    To address your direct topic, its crazy the Pryor can contribute to this kind of mess, and not be severely punished or held accountable. If you read the quotes from many of the USC players – they dont care about the school, the championships being taken away, etc. In their minds they won the championship no matter what the record books say. Bottom line – until the players suffer more severe consequences, they wont care about following rules – rich,poor, whatever the background or circumstances. They know what they are doing is wrong- and they also know the consequences arent severe enough to worry about. Risk vs. reward is out of wack.

    On a seperate note, Pryor now wants to enter the NFL. Most experts dont think he will make it. So at the end of the day, this coddling and privledge he has expereinced his whole life will cost him dearly. He will go into a severe donward spiral NFL doesnt work out. This entire process since HS you could argue will end up hurting this kid more than it has helped him.
