It’s a nice gesture but, uhh, too little too late…
Making his first comments after leaving Ohio State, Terrelle Pryor expressed regret for his actions that led to his departure.
Already facing a five-game suspension for selling memorabilia for impermissible benefits, Pryor elected to skip his senior season amid more investigations into his use of automobiles and allegations about him selling his autographs for thousands of dollars.
“In terms of Ohio State, I’d like to sorry to the coaching staff, say sorry to my teammates, say sorry to all Buckeye Nation and all the Buckeyes fans across the country,” Pryor said. “I never meant to hurt anybody directly or indirectly with my conduct off the field and I am truly sorry.”
When speaking specifically to ousted-coach Jim Tressel Pryor says:
“In terms of Jim Tressel, I’m sorry for what all went down,” Pryor said. “I apologize with all my heart. I love you just like a father. You taught me a lot. I apologize for putting you in a situation and taking you out of a job and a place that you love to be.
“I regret the fact that you’re not there anymore, and I regret the fact I’m not there anymore.”
The damage is done, Ohio State has to move on, just go get your NFL contract (if there IS any NFL contract) and keep it movin’. This apology won’t make at anyone in Ohio like you any more, much less forgive you…
If you’re an Ohio State fan do you buy Pryor’s apology??
