Don't put much faith in Pryor/NFL Draft rumors

It's a tough time to be an Ohio State Buckeyes fan right now. Not only do you have to deal with the latest fiasco involving head coach Jim Tressel and the Buckeye Five, but there's also the fact that once the season starts, neither Tressel or the Buckeye Five will be available for the first five games of the season. That means no Terrelle Pryor, no Dan Herron, no DeVier Posey and no head coach. Of course, while all this is going on, there's also the age-old tradition of kicking someone while they're down, and that seems to be the case with Ohio State these days.

The latest incident comes from the National Football Post's Dave Miller, who is reporting that, according to a source, Terrelle Pryor is considering leaving Ohio State to enter the NFL's supplemental draft rather than serve his suspension.

The dual-threat signal caller has not dismissed the idea of going the NFL Supplemental Draft route. According to a source, the odds of Pryor staying for his senior season are about 60-40, but Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd coming out and declaring for the supplemental draft would have a direct effect on his decision. Of course, Floyd dodged suspension by the school’s Residence Life committee after being arrested for DUI. However, head coach Brian Kelly suspended his star receiver for the foreseeable future.

Ah, yes, "a source" who says there's a "60-40" chance he could leave. Which leads to a whole lot of room for error should Pryor not leave Ohio State. After all, there's a 40% chance he won't! So if I were an Ohio State fan, I wouldn't get too worried about this story, especially in light of this tweet from Adam Jardy of the Buckeye Sports Bulletin.

Also, if that's not enough to squash any fears you may be having about Pryor's Ohio State career, there's more. While the National Football Post is an NFL website that has a good handle on NFL matters, it's track record with college stories isn't as strong. As Matt Hinton of Dr. Saturday points out, the last time the site ran a story about a college player entering the draft, it was this story about Oklahoma's Sam Bradford.

According to that report, Bradford was going to declare himself eligible for the NFL Draft following Oklahoma's bout with Florida in the 2009 BCS Championship. A week later Bradford announced he was returning to Oklahoma.

So don't lose any sleep, Buckeye fans.

Don't put much faith in Pryor/NFL Draft rumors

I think Pryer would be better served going to the NFL. This new format of the big 10 football teams actually winning a big 10 championship on the gridiron, instead of the ESPN studios will be mighty confusing. Wow, gone are the days of co-champs and tri-champs because your didn't have the balls to play each other, you are now going to play big-boy ball; just like they do in real football conferences. Yeah buckeyes the least of your worries is if Pryor sticks around to get his lovely tatoos, but; the cold hard fact that your going to have to play a conference championship game to prove the real champion, withouut the blessing  and lying of ESPN. I know you big 10 fans don't understand this concept , but you soon will and it will make your champion a truly tested and better team.  I think it would be best for you buckeyes to have Pryor and Tressal ride off into the sunset ; after winning the biggest bowl game in buckeye history!

i agree with pretty much everything youre sying but at th end, you stick your foot in your mouth and talk about how the players are holding out for more money. get your facts straight, the OWNERS want to take money awy form the players, and it is the owners who locked out the players, not the players who are on strike. SO in retrospect, talk abvout wehat you know and SSTFUY about wehat you dont know until you can do a little READING and make an EDUCATED opinion, then type it out for the world to see. THis might minimize how the rest of the community perceives youre ignorance. Good Luck in the future

Last years Ohio State Buckeye seniors would have gone down as the classiest class of Buckeyes in school history if they would have been the ones to bench the ungrateful undergrads for last years Sugar Bowl. Too bad, it would have been a great story. "You bench the ungratefuls or we sit, take your pick Coach Tressel."

So glad rumors are considered stories for the media now and they are free to write any rumor as a story.  Let me try:  "According to a source, Pryor was considering punching Tressel in the face and snorting a pile of blow on the sidelines after their last bowl game"   Look at me, I just created a story for CBSSports!
