OSU players pledge to return for senior year All 5 of the "to be suspended in 2011" Buckeyes had to pledge to Jim Tressell that they would return for their senior seasons and serve their suspensions before Tressell would allow them to play in the Sugar Bowl. On one hand, hats off to Tressell for forcing these guys into a non-binding agreement to return for their punishment. We will see if it holds up with NFL millions on the line. On the other hand, wow this turned out to be a win-win situation for Tressell. He used the Sugar Bowl to ensure that none of the 5 would turn pro. Seems like a bit of blackmail. He gets to have his cake in the Sugar Bowl, and he has all of those players back in 2011 after 5 games. I will still be shocked if none of the 5 go pro after the bowl game.
