For more on the Buckeyes, visit SB Nation's Along the Olentangy.

After a nearly year long investigation that eventually forced Terrelle Pryor to the NFL early and Jim Tressel his job the Ohio State Buckeyes will find out the NCAA's official ruling on its litany of violations at 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. As Eleven Warriors reports, the Buckeyes have already extensively self-punished, but there is a chance the NCAA could add further sanctions to the football program:

The NCAA could accept or add to Ohio State's self-punishment, which included Jim Tressel's resignation, two years of probation, five reduced scholarships, vacating the entire 2010 season and forfeiting its Big Ten bowl payout share, or roughly $338,000.

Once the decision is known the Buckeyes can choose to accept any additional punishment or appeal. Athletic Director Gene Smith has stated that Ohio State is prepared to accept any potential punishment from the NCAA. The Buckeyes already vacated their 2010 Big Ten championship that they shared with Michigan State and Wisconsin.
