Desperate Ohio State fans beg Obama to lift football team's NCAA ban11/20/2012
While the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish wonder who they'll face in the BCS Championship, college football's only other 11-0 team will have to just watch on TV. Ohio State is still banned from postseason play (because of Tattoogate, when players traded memorabilia for gifts), despite the efforts of a group of fans who posted a petition on whitehouse.gov, begging President Obama to "pardon" the team. "Please exercise your executive power to pardon the NCAA's excessive sanctions," they wrote. "To enable a rightful, satisfying culmination to the college football season for the American people." The petition was quickly removed. Maybe next year, Buckeyes. [Source]
