Terrell Pryor pays for his tattoos. I hope.

Pryor shows off his Block O tattoo
Ohio State AD Gene Smith is set to hold a news conference at noon eastern, to address possible violations in which OSU players traded autographs for tattoos.  For Pete's sake, I hope that's not true.  Please.  Please please.

Initially suspected widely was QB Terrell Pryor.  The Columbus Dispatch reported that on his twitter account (@tpeezy2), Terrell issued a crystal clear statement:  "I paid for my tattoos. GoBucks".

Unfortunately that tweet seems to have disappeared.

Well, one hour to find out if there is early coal in our stockings.

UPDATE: Five players, including Pryor, will be suspended the first five games of 2011, for selling awards, rings, and GOLD PANTS (!!!!).  How this affects decisions to return for the 2011 season is still to come.  All players are eligible for the Sugar Bowl.
