In 2010, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was suspended for the first five games of the Buckeyes’ season and ordered to repay $2,500 after he sold his 2008 Big Ten championship ring and other Ohio State memorabilia. The scandal would eventually cost coach Jim Tressel his job and haunt Ohio State to this day (an undefeated 2012 season was for naught as the Buckeyes were bowl ineligible).
Pryor’s 2008 ring has surfaced on eBay, and it sold for $18,100 on Saturday. Perhaps the most questionable thing about the listing is the ridiculously low shipping cost. If I’m buying a $18,000+ ring, I want some insurance.
Bidding shoots up to $18,000
Yet with all the scandal, heartache, and unrest it caused OSU and our fan base, if I could rewind time and do it all over again, I would do it the same way. Why? Because it brought Urban F'in Meyer to TOSU. I think it was fate. Because had this happened at any other time. Urban probably wouldn't have even been on the market. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread, lol...
I am sorry but that makes me sick to my stomach. Personally, since all that went down I refuse to buy anything that was given to a player unless at an estate auction or something similar. DV me all you guys want but I find it vial I know I joke around A LOT on the webz but I love tOSU to my core and giving that jackass anything more than a hospital visit is too good for him IMHO
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
To state the obvious, people have the right to make choices about how they utilize their money so long as the transaction isn't illegal. But that's doesn't mean spending habits can't be stupid, wasteful, in poor taste and cause one to vomit just a little.
Buying TP's ring fits in this category.
What a waste of money.
What do you really get out of being able to show the ring to someone and say, "Hey, look what I bought on eBay...something someone (that I don't know) earned (and I didn't)...cool, huh? (Look how much money I have!)"
Know why "hilarious" is such a funny word? Because it's hilarious.
Then there is this thought. Agreed
Pryor could have purchased it himself. I'm sure he has the money
Had to bid against somebody
This is the same ring Pryor sold for $2,500. If that scum bag who bought it, just sold it for $18k, wow. Sounds like that dude has some serious legal bills coming his way. I'm sure this isn't the first Big Ten ring to be sold. I have the feeling it's by far the most expensive.
:) Proyor sold ALL of his stuff for that amount of money (or so that's all they could prove) So that ring was a portion of that $2500.
