The resolution, authored by spokesman Brian Stewart, calls on the NCAA to restore the team’s 2010 record and win.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The 2010 season of the Ohio State University football team, released after a scandal with memorabilia for money, must be resumed due to recent changes that allow college athletes to receive compensation under a symbolic resolution was approved legislators of the House of Representatives.
The holiday season took place after the players’ discoveries in 2009 and 2010 cash and free or discounted tattoos are accepted from the owner of the Columbus tattoo parlor, and exchanged memorabilia, such as championship rings, for money. The scandal led to the resignation of then-coach Jim Tressel, now president of Youngstown State University.
Last year, the NCAA first admitted college athletes receive compensation for the use of their name, image or similarity.
The elimination of the NCAA 2010 season 12-1 Ohio, including the victory in the Sugar Bowl, unfairly hurt players, fans and coaches who had nothing to do with the scandal, said MP Brian Stewart, sponsor of the resolution and an Ohio alumnus.
The House of Representatives passed a resolution on Wednesday, but support was not unanimous. MP Jamie Callender noted that the athletes who were in the scandal violated the rules, which will still not be covered by NIL compensation. MP Nino Vitaly questioned the importance of the resolution compared to other issues before the House of Representatives.
Last summer, five members of the 2010 team visited NCAA to restore its victories and records.
Terrell Prairie issued a statement on July 13, signed by him and four other players, Devier Pose, Boom Herron Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas.
In a few weeks, The NCAA issued a statement saying that although athletes can now benefit from the NIL rules, the rules do not allow “pay-per-game agreements”.
“The NCAA violation process exists to promote justice in the College of Sports. All NCAA member schools vote on the rules governing fair play, are agreed and are expected to be upheld. Previous sanctions, including those of several years, will not be overestimated or revised based on recent changes in NIL rules. ”
