The thing that gets me about this is that Ohio State allowed this guy to be hyped as the best player in the Big Ten.
His teammate pretty much says; "look, he's just not that good right now". You'd have to think that Tressel et al. were aware of this fact when the season started. But where are the Paternoesqe "he's talented, but he's got a long way to go before he maximizes that talent" quotes.
Avoiding that might have helped Pryor's ego in August, but the weight of those expectations are killing him in October. Maybe Tressel deserves some blame for not trying to keep expectations slightly more realistic here.
