Apparently, Terrelle Pryor wasn’t worth all of the trouble after all.

The star Ohio State quarterback leads a pack of five Ohio State players who have been suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia, which is a violation of NCAA rules.

It turns out that eight months prior to the investigation in December, Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel actually knew about his players’ actions.

For failing to comply with NCAA bylaws and his contract with the Buckeyes, Tressel has now been suspended two games and fined $250,000.

Tressel always appeared to be squeaky clean, but is this punishment enough?
