, Dan Herron
, Solomon Thomas
, and Devier Posey
, had received improper benefits in violation of NCAA rules. Ohio State vacated all of its wins from the 2010 season, including its Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl titles, and placed the football program on two years' probation. The NCAA placed Ohio State on an additional one year's probation, and banned it from post-season play in 2012. Despite the scandal, Tressel was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2015 [May 30, 2011].
