Friday morning brought with it a bombshell report from Pat Forde and Pete Thamel of Yahoo that detailed the "underbelly of college basketball." The report includes expense reports and balance sheets that list cash advances from former NBA agent Andy Miller and his associate Charles Dawkins.

ASM, the agency Miller and Dawkins worked for, reportedly also provided financial compensation for entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families. Nearly 20 schools and over 25 athletes were named in the report.

Soon after the report was released a former Ohio State star commented on Thad Matta's involvement. Hint: He wasn't involved, according to Jared Sullinger.

In a hilarious tweet, Sullinger said Thad Matta wouldn't give him money for anything. Including a Gatorade.

Fellow former Ohio State player Sam Thompson also weighed in on Matta's frugality. With an equally funny tweet.

It looks like Ohio State might be in the clear as far as Thad Matta is concerned.
