Report: Former Ohio State football player being sued over role in Buckeyes-related website
A former Ohio State football player is being sued over his role in an Ohio State website.
Kirk Barton, who played offensive line for the Buckeyes from 2004-07, is under fire for using website money for personal use. One instance in the lawsuit is when Barton took $7,500 in money from his site, Buckeye Scoop, to buy a vehicle. But there are plenty of other accusations in the lawsuit.

Buckeye Scoop was founded in 2020 and brought in a great crew of Ohio State writers from other sites. The site promoted an exclusive interview with quarterback Quinn Ewers, who reclassified to the Class of 2021 to enroll at Ohio State this season and sign a massive NIL deal.
This probably won’t be the last we hear about this.
