On Ohio State Football

To Brian: Even after severe penalties for cheating, SMU football continued to pay its players and eventually received the death penalty, but none of those wins by this team using all those paid players for so long has ever been cancelled. In 2010, Ohio State asked a few players to sell their own items and ended up with all 12 wins that season vacated, including the Sugar Bowl in which the NCAA told OSU to use these players after becoming aware of the violations. It’s time for those 12 wins to be restored and the asterisk removed.

To Dennis: I can’t answer for the SMU scandal, but what Ohio State players did was against NCAA rules in 2010 and is against NCAA rules now. So I don’t expect the NCAA to apologize.

Ohio State Buckeyes linebacker Steele Chambers (22) pursues Indiana Hoosiers running back Stephen Carr (5) during the NCAA football game at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Ind. on Sunday, October 24, 2021. The Ohio State won 54-7.

For the editor: Good article on not only Steele Chambers, but also the new coach and the whole defensive scheme. Good nuts and bolts stuff.

On NIL and taxes

Dear Mr White: April 18 was tax day not only for millions of normal salaried Americans, but also for a new breed of filers: name, image and likeness of college athletes. (My initial thought: Did Quinn Ewers remember to file an Ohio state tax return for are received in 2021 while retaining the No. 3 quarterback position for the Buckeyes? My guess is: yes.)

Although I never received a 1099 form for $1 million in recognition of my work as a pitchman for Big Al’s Chevrolet in East Lansing/Tuscaloosa/Norman/College Station, I bet it would draw all the Warning. (Note to self: please tell me I left about $300,000 worth of dry powder to meet my tax obligations, you know, before I bought the Hummer and parked the rest in Bitcoin .) Assuming everyone acted cautiously, April 18 produced two windfalls: one for government revenue agencies at all levels, and a second for the CPA battalion that headline-opposed university athletic departments had to hire to wrestle with the complexities of the tax code. After all, a headline they want to avoid: “On the eve of the big tech game, state quarterback is charged with tax evasion.”
