Five members of the 2010 Ohio State football team are calling on the NCAA to reinstate wins and records after the passing of name, image and likeness rules this year.

Terrelle Pryor posted a statement signed by him and four other players, DeVier Posey, Boom Herron Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas.

"Although this could never undo what we and our families endured for breaking rules that shouldn't have existed in the first place, we believe reinstating and acknowledging the accomplishments of ourselves and our teammates would be a huge step in the right direction."

The 2010 team, led by Jim Tressel, went 12-1 winning the Big Ten Championship and before defeating Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl.

The NCAA removed the season from the record books after the five players were found to have traded memorabilia for tattoos. Tressel resigned in May 2011.

"We are calling for our school records and legacy to be restored so that Buckeye Nation can look at us with the same love and fondness that we've always had for them."

The letter closes by saying the players look forward to telling their stories one day and having the "Tattoo 5" being a legitimate part of the university's history forever.
