Here’s Jim Delany ringing in a happy new year for Ohio State:
… He said reports indicating he lobbied for the five suspended Ohio State players to be eligible for the Sugar Bowl are not true. He said he didn’t even know there was a precedent for such a delayed-penalty ruling until an NCAA official informed him.
And here’s Mr. Delany today.
Jim Delany just told us "if we'd known what we know now," he would not have advocated for OSU players participting in Sugar Bowl.—

You tell me – is there a difference between “lobbying” and “advocating”? Because if not, somebody’s FOS.
