We don't want to overstep our bounds here — no, really — but we've been hearing a pretty persistant rumor in recent days concerning the Ohio State football program. If the rumors are true, be on the lookout for potential sanctions against the Buckeyes, with the offenses ranging from taking tests for athletes to unauthorized payments (from whom we're not sure; boosters, maybe).

In an even more potentially damning rumor, perhaps for all parties, the NCAA actually uncovered these violations and decided on punishment BEFORE the season started, but, according to a couple of sources, didn't want to mess with television schedules. Hence, the delay.

Just rumors, as of now, but relatively solid sources. The real question: Will Brady Quinn's sister change that uniform of hers now?
