'Regular' sanctions for Buckeyes

DAYTON - Ohio State must erase references to all regular-season games in addition to NCAA tournament trips it made while using an ineligible player, the school said yesterday.

Ohio State spokesman Steve Snapp said the university asked the NCAA whether the university had to wipe out references to all games played and not just those played in the postseason.

"They said it is for all the regular-season games and postseason games," Snapp said.

The NCAA put Ohio State on three years of probation March 10 and ordered it to pay back all tournament money earned from 1999-2002 when former player Boban Savovic was on the roster. Also, Ohio State must erase all references to team accomplishments from those years.

A two-year NCAA investigation found that Savovic received improper benefits and committed academic fraud while he played for Ohio State.

Originally, the university thought last week's ruling only dealt with NCAA tournament games.
