Ohio State sanctions are out 

December, 20, 2011
According to a report by the Columbus Dispatch, the NCAA has handed Ohio State a one-year bowl ban, and four extra scholarship reductions over the next three years on top of the self-imposed five by Ohio State.

Urban Meyer has been telling prospects on the recruiting trail that Ohio State wasn't expecting much more to be added before this decision came out. Depending on how those prospects view the penalties handed down by the committee of infractions, they might be OK with the outcome.

The bowl ban comes as a surprise and means that Ohio State will not be eligible to participate in a bowl game for the 2012 season. After the six win season this year, it might be safe to say removing themselves from bowl participation this season might have been more worthwhile. The bowl game next season might not be a huge deal, but the extra practice time certainly would be.
