Ohio State Suspensions

BuckeyeBuckeye Posts: 4,984 Captain
No idea what this is about, but 4 big names not going to make the revenge game @ VA Tech. Meyer supposed to have a news conference at 2:30, but I wouldn't expect to hear any details from him.

Ohio State announced via a news release on Thursday that four Buckeyes, including star defensive end Joey Bosa, will miss the 2015 season opener against Virginia Tech for violating Department of Athletics policy.

In addition to Bosa, sophomore H-back Jalin Marshall, senior receiver Corey Smith and junior H-back Dontre Wilson will also have to miss the game against the Hokies.

    Very odd time to release this.
    2 hrs before Urban has hours of availability and countless planned talk show appearances in the next 24 hours.

    Mark it.

    If I had to guess, and it's just a guess, but I am leaning towards something to do with a booster.

    But it could be a drug test.

    So much for that advanced warning you said we get.

    Two WR One HB and Bosa.

    FWIW Wilson, the HB red shirted last year due to injury. He is the returner in this video:

    I think Meyer punished him for fighting by red shirting him all of last year. But what do I know.

    Some knucklehead on ESPiN is saying that tOSU's punishment for failed drug test is minimum 2 game suspension, so they are speculating that isn't it.

    Seems about right from what I recall from Spence.

    Interesting.

    If its a booster issue this story will blow up because of the recent history of problems tOSU has w/ boosters and players.

    Agree.

    Timing was **** poor as you mentioned earlier, before the ESPN car wash.

    Yep.

    Seeing on some OSU boards that the list WAS a lot longer too.

    CJ at DE for Bosa and Miller returning punts and playing H back for Jalin Marshall. It's like the suspensions didn't even happen.

    Mark it.

    Multiple sources are now saying it was for weed.

    Complete fools... just like the nfl the players know when the rec drug test is coming. As long as they are not in the special testing program they get one rec drug test in late summer and that's it.

    Hearing the same thing. ESPiN just said they failed the test after the NCG and the school knew the suspension was coming for a while now.

    If true, Meyer will be questioned as to why it's only a 1 game suspension. When Noah Spence failed his first test (trace ammounts of extacy) he was suspended permanently by the Big Ten and on appeal it was reduced to 3 games. He failed a second time later in the year (before the big ten champ game or orange bowl iirc) and was suspended permanently by the Big Ten.

    @tym2g3thi Just saw it on SC when I came inside. I thought drugs/alcohol were a two game minimum. Either way, not good.

    Adam Rice ‏@Adam_Rice9 · 53m53 minutes ago
    @davisr10 @schadjoe Marijuana AND academics accounts for a 1 game suspension? Carlos Hyde missed 3 games for an accusation!

    JR ‏@JR0602 · 1h1 hour ago
    @schadjoe 1 game? Mary Jane got my dude Greg Bryant 4. But yall still want to be "equal"

    Ryder Cochrane ‏@RyderCochrane · 1h1 hour ago
    @schadjoe @ESPNU so how come they only get one game, but Carrington at UO is supposed to be out for half a season?

    After doing some additional research it appears they are subject to a secondary test if in a post season game.
    I don't know if this is new for the playoff or is status quo.
    I knew a players back in 04-06 and they would say they only got one test a year.
    Hell, I have smoked weed w/ Noah multiple times.

    FWIW Meyer has not really addressed the suspensions during his pressor, only saying he keeps internal matters internal and only discusses suspensions publicly when they involve a legal issue or other public matters.

    The next year or two it will be seen if he has changed his ways from Gainesville or if he lets this team get away from him too.

    As a side note he mentioned at least twice how Miller wasn't a leader before switching positions but seems to be stepping up now.

    That was kind of strange.

    One of the kids from Oregon who was popped for weed on a test right before the championship game was suspended by the NCAA for the national championship game and "at least 50%" of this season.

    I think you mentioned this prior to the game DumDum.

    But as Carrington continues to work out in advance of the May 2 spring game at Autzen Stadium, Oregon doesn't yet know how long his ineligibility will officially last after he reportedly tested positive on an NCAA-issued drug test for marijuana. The positive test ruled him out of Oregon's loss in the College Football Playoff national championship game to Ohio State, as well as "at least the first 50 percent of regular-season contests or dates of competition in the season following the positive test," according to the NCAA.

    How can the OSU players get away with just 1 game? Self reporting? Self imposed test versus an NCAA test? Maybe this isn't over yet?

    Maybe one of your Go Gata buddies can remind you who your coach is.
