Ohio radio station offers Casey Anthony $10,000 to wear Michigan hat

When Casey Anthony was discovered to be hiding out in Ohio and wearing a Ohio State hate (Go Blue!) it explained a lot… but now an Ohio radio station is offering the nation’s most notrious woman $10,000 if she wears a Michigan hat. According to 10TV, the radio show “The Dave and Jimmy Show,” host Jimmy “Jam” says that “10,000 is a good trade off for wearing a Michigan hat.” Anthony has family in northeast Ohio and was snapped by photographers shopping at an Old Navy in downtown Lennox. When TMZ posted the photos,

“We are never surprised to see Buckeye pride displayed across the world,” an Ohio State representative told TMZ. “Buckeye hoodies and hats have traditionally been spotted across the world, and we understand that as a result, our logo will be seen in a wide range of news situations, whether positive or negative.”

Disdained Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel is supposedly happy about Anthony being spotted in the hat, because he is no longer Buckeye nation’s most hated!

Little Sisters of the Poor congratulate TCU’s Rose Bowl win with billboards in Ohio

Despite going undefeated, Texas Christian University has been criticized for playing a weak schedule. Earlier in the season, Ohio State President George Gee denounced TCU saying, “Having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it’s like murderer’s row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.”

Now that TCU has won the Rose Bowl and defeated Wisconsin, the Horn Frogs are not letting Gee forget his comments. 20 electronic billboards have gone up in the Columbus, Ohio area congratulating TCU on their Rose Bowl victory, from “The Littler Sisters of the Poor.”

Ohio State finished second behind Wisconsin in the Big 10 and instead went to the Sugar Bowl where they defeated Arkansas. There is no telling if the Buckeyes would be able to beat the Little Sisters of the Poor, but as my 90-year old grandma says, “It’s Catholic so it’s no monkey business.”

Accused Ohio State football player Posey sold ring to help widowed mother

Yesterday, Thejerseychaser.com reported five Ohio State football players have been suspended for the first five games for the 2011 season for NCAA infractions. Wide receiver DeVier Posey one of the guilty, sold his Big10 Championship ring on Ebay for $1,200. Posey is not happy about his suspension and is speaking out saying he sold it to help his widowed mother of four financially. In an interview with the Columbus Dispatch, Posey and his mother spoke out:

“You have to have a car. You’ve got to have insurance. You’ve got to have gas money. What they give them for rent and stuff is not enough. It’s just not enough… So it’s already a financial strain on a family. The whole thing requires money, but they – the NCAA – don’t want to give it to them. The NCAA is saying, ‘Well, if they gave them money, they no longer have amateur status.’ Well, guess what? College football and basketball players are the only amateurs not receiving any money that I see plastered all over the TV and on magazines. They’re not amateurs. Who do they think they’re kidding? The NCAA certainly doesn’t look at them as amateurs. If they did, they wouldn’t be making money off them.”

Mrs. Posey does have a point… if the NCAA was serious about their punishment they would have suspended the players during their upcoming $ugar Bowl. Next time college athletes want to make some cash they should just have their dads sell their championship memorabilia.

Ohio State standout quarterback Terrelle Pryor and five other Buckeye football players have been suspended for the first five games of 2011 for getting free tattoos in exchange for autographs and selling OSU memorabilia on Ebay. Offensive lineman Mike Adams is accused of selling his 2008 Big10 Championship ring for $1,000. While, running back Daniel Herron sold his football jersey for $1,150 and his pants and shoes for $1,000. Anyone else surprise a football uniform went for more than the championship ring?
