Yet Pryor was seen landing the private, $75 million jet yesterday in the parking lot outside Ohio Stadium. Pryor's flying privileges have been suspended for 90 days because he failed to produce proof of insurance after he landed his jet on a busy, downtown Columbus street in April to get some pizza.
"We are looking into the issue and we will make sure Terrelle gets all of his documentation up to date and is following any and all penalties and suspensions the state has levied against him," said an Ohio State spokesman.
According to sources in Columbus, Pryor has been spotted flying the Gulfstream G650 as well as other top-of-the-line private jets during his three years at Ohio State. Pryor reportedly has never taken a flying lesson.
"Flying lessons? I don't need those. I'm Terrelle Pryor," the quarterback said when contacted about the report. "Plus, I got a parachute."
Picture Jim Tressel's New Vest
I don't think he's sincere when he tells me to have a nice day.
Apparently there were people throughout Ohio and the rest of the country who believed the image Tressel was selling.
Three years later, after lies and scandals have forced him out of the head coaching job at Ohio State, Tressel's book of life tips and lessons on ethics and success isn't selling quite as well. On Amazon it's ranked the 43,225th best seller and dropping fast.
That's why it is being re-released with some back cover blurbs that better capture Tressel's successes at THE Ohio State University.
It's the biggest industry in Michigan after the anti-RichRod t-shirt industry.
LSPSU a small, Roman Catholic college for women in rural Ohio has gained notoriety in recent years for its non-conference schedule, and school officials have been looking for a head coach that can help them be more competitive.
"We believe in forgiveness and redemption," said Sister Mary Catherine, LSPSU president. "Mr. Tressel has very publicly erred and we believe he will now be on his best behavior the kind of behavior we expect here at Little Sisters. Beyond that we just want him to coach our young women up."
Little Sisters instantly moved to snatch Tressel up due to his success against low-level competition, and he quickly accepted.
"Coaching young nuns-in-training presents a new challenge for me," said Tressel. "Both in that they are a low-level program and also for the fact that they have ethics. That's a new atmosphere for me. But I am excited. And I also don't really have any other job offers right now."
They think the Ohio State scandals are all Lebron's fault.
Based on the expression on his face, it went pretty deep.
Maybe if the guy hadn't dressed like a schlub, she would have let him in.
Someone report this billboard to him a few months from now.
