Follow Noon on Twitter | Rowland | Givler
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It has almost been a year to the day since it was learned that the Ohio State Buckeyes were under NCAA investigation, and on Tuesday the dark saga finally came to an end as the NCAA Committee on Infractions handed down its ruling.
Athletic Director Gene Smith and the Buckeyes learned they will have a bowl ban for the 2012 season (which includes participation in the Big Ten Championship game), be docked nine scholarships over the next three years (Ohio State will be capped at 82 total scholarships for the next three seasons) and will be on three years of probation starting immediately and running through December 19, 2014.
