Jared Sullinger posts hilarious reaction to huge NCAA news

By David Kenyon

A report from Yahoo Sports revealed major details on the investigation into elicit payments for college basketball players, but Jared Sullinger is confident former Ohio State coach Thad Matta didn’t cause any trouble.

Why? Because Sullinger couldn’t even get a free bottle of Gatorade.

No Ohio State players were listed in the Yahoo report, which details the impermissible benefits provided to college athletes. Those include former stars Dennis Smith Jr. (NC State), Markelle Fultz (Washington) and Bam Adebayo (Kentucky), as well as current players Miles Bridges (Michigan State) and Wendell Carter (Duke), though the extent of payment varies dramatically.

While the aftermath of the investigation is unclear, it’s likely going to have a serious effect on several notable schools and could even make an impact on March Madness.

Thanks to Matta’s apparent strict following of the rules, though, Ohio State fans can rest a little easier.
