COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The head of Ohio State University says the school's new trouble with the NCAA is not a sign of bigger problems but instead shows that the school is the "poster child for compliance."
The Columbus Dispatch reports (bit.ly/nklAtQ) university President E. Gordon Gee said Tuesday night that football player suspensions announced this week demonstrate that when Ohio State discovers a possible infraction, it's resolved and reported to the NCAA, no matter how minor.
Gee made the comments after delivering an annual address to the faculty.
Athletic Director Gene Smith said Monday that three players will sit out Saturday's game at No. 14 Nebraska for accepting too much money for too little work at summer jobs. Two of the three have already been sidelined for taking cash and free tattoos.
