Ohio State Receives Second Notice of Allegations from the NCAA

The NCAA issued a second notice of allegations on November 3, 2011, to Ohio State University. In the document, the NCAA provided Ohio State notice that it will face a “failure to monitor” allegation, as well as alleged rules-violations involving the football program. The allegation in the November 3 notice pertain to approximately $2,405 worth of extra-benefits provided by a Cleveland-area booster to nine football student-athletes.

The NCAA enforcement staff also contended Ohio State “failed to take appropriate actions to determine if [the booster] continued to employ student-athletes or host them at the charity event despite concerns about his interaction with the football program” and “failed to educate football student-athletes about DiGeronimo, encourage them to cease interaction with him or inquire about their potential employment with DiGeronimo and attendance at the charity event.”

ESPN.com reported “Ohio State will strip itself of five total football scholarships over the next three years in response to the further alleged violations”.

Ohio State appeared before the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions on August 12, 2011, to respond to allegations involving the tattoo-for-memorabilia scandal.
