The lawyer for Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor questioned the facts in a Sports Illustrated article on the Buckeyes' NCAA problems, saying Thursday the story is "90 percent wrong."
Columbus attorney Larry James also said there is nothing out of the ordinary about the cars Pryor has driven or purchased. "I think there's a misperception about Terrelle, there's a misperception about the overall program as brought about in part by the Sports Illustrated article that everybody's just taken to the bank," James said Thursday.
"We stand by our reporting," said Scott Novak, a spokesman for SI.
James also provided the purchase agreement for the 2007 Nissan 350Z with more than 80,000 miles that Pryor has been driving to workouts this week. Pryor's mother signed for the car, which cost $18,401.56, trading in a Dodge Charger worth $7,253. And he confirmed that Pryor's driving privileges have been reinstated after he showed proof that he was insured.
