Tressel announced that Pryor and the other Suspended Players will be returning next season. He said that if they did not, they would not be allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl.
If the players are truthfully telling Tressel they will return, I don't have as much of a problem with them playing in the bowl game. However, I could still see them changing their minds and leaving after the bowl anyway, as Tressel wouldn't be able to stop them. Of course, if they did, their reputation within the OSU community will be even worse. This might be an ingenious move by Tressel.
