Suspended indefinitely = until summer conditioning is over?  Until the first big game on the schedule?

As a buckeye fan stated, "he's a 3-star…will be nice to free up another scholarship." Integrity runs thick in them.

Ok, so he's a good player and Urban will go light on him, right?

So, which is it?  If Urban doesn't kick him off the team it's because Urban chooses to look the other way when a "good" player commits a misdeed.  But, if Urban DOES kick him off the team, then the narrative will be that the player is no good and Urban used this incident as a convenient excuse to free up a scholarship.  So, again, which is it?

Did you really expect to find adulation for Urban Meyer when you visit an opponent's board?

I took that quote right from one of your fans. To me its not a matter of if he does or doesn't kick him off the team. I would like to see Meyer care more about a recruits character and less about how he does on the field. But we all know winning is #1 in Columbus while integrity is set on the back burner. Pat Fitzgerald addressed the issue at last BIG media days when asked about Meyers players getting into trouble. He simply said that "it all starts with recruiting." When Meyer cares more about their talent and less about their character that's the bed you lie in.

The Dispatch's Tim May reports that an Ohio State spokesman confirms Tracy Sprinkle is no longer a member of the Buckeyes football team.

Probably 240 or 250 and getting grey. That being said, didn't we have a commit who just got tried and convicted of a crime?

He fixed my roof about 6 years ago.  You can tell he regrets the decisions he made early in his life.  He seems almost ashamed of himself if you talk to him.

I've heard recent interviews with him. He appears sincerely remorseful, disappointed in letting his team and himself down. The guy still bleeds Badger Red.

Were you still in 3 cornered pants when that happened.  Moss never played another down at UW and rightfully so.  Maybe your next post can allege that Pat O'Dea was really Butch Cassidy in disguise since you like reaching back for something that happened 20 years ago.

Both------------as it should be once a school and/or coach has earned a reputation.  OSU has had too many incidents of assorted (or should I say sorted) variety over the years.

Major difference is "perceived" reputation.  A 3rd string player at OSU getting arrested makes national headlines.  That wouldn't even make local news at 95% of other programs.  So yeah you "hear" about it more when it happens at a prestigious program like OSU or Notre Dame, but it doesn't mean they have any more arrests than any other program.

Yup, as was said a few post ups...

Here are the teams with recent arrests the last few months (just to name a few)...

New Mexico
Georgia State
Notre Dame
Oklahoma
Nebraska
Texas A & M
LSU


I bet this board is only aware of one of them...noidea

It's the old tree falls in the forest thing. If a Northwestern third string kid gets arrested, does anybody notice?wink

It will be whatever one he wants it to be this time.  That's the whole point, Meyer doesn't seem to have any core values except for doing whatever it takes to win.

And, are you and your fellow Buckeyes ever ashamed that you troll other boards and jump in so quickly to defend the questionable practices of your program and coach?  Is this some kind of organized effort, you trolling the Badger board, someone else the Michigan board, etc. etc.?  It's comical.

Are you really trying to play the victim here? Given Meyer's questionable commitment to recruiting high-character student athletes while at Florida, recent off-field incidents (i.e. Carlos Hyde, Cardale Jones' tweet, now Sprinkle's malfeasance, etc.), and the high-profile nature of The Ohio State University, maybe your program is going to receive more scrutiny than others. Are you familiar with the phrase "you reap what you sow?" Meyer has brought the scrutiny upon himself, and when incidents like this occur, they're going to be on everyone's radar screen.

No victim here. Urban has been nothing short of an extremely tough disciplinarian since he got here.

You won't admit that because you loathe him. He admitted he let things get a little out of control at Florida and was too lenient. If people like you will never let that go, well that's fine I guess.

Just don't act like urban is out recruiting a bunch of thugs. In fact both teams recruited sprinkle. You can't control kids when they go off on their own, sorry it won't open.

Ohio state is already the most hated school in the country, so that doesn't help either. But I do think it's getting a little ridiculous that we are singled out so much. Such as when a kid tweets that he hates school (he's an honor roll student too), and people use that to show urban recruits bad kids- even three years later

Easy with the Straw Man, chief. I don't hate Meyer; I would describe my attitude towards him as "contemptuously indifferent." I have nothing to let go of; my comments were made not to condemn him as much as to explain that the increased scrutiny is going to bring unwanted (and negative) attention placed on the OSU program.

You are aware that it was a BUCKEYE fan who made the "3 star" comment right?

Not real bright, this one.

Please. Remember Carolos Hyde?  Your boy looked the other way until the media finally got their lips of his butt to actually criticize him. Even then, only after the media ripped him and called him out in the aftermath of Aaron Hernandez's arrest  did he do ANYTHING resembling discipline .

You are either delusional or ignorant.

Not that it matters, but it was a tweet. Using a tweet from a few years ago and a situation in which no charges were filed to say urban is recruiting thugs isn't fair IMO.

And to the post above... Is that really what you think happened with Carlos Hyde? Really? That's what can be very frustrating . People make up their own narrative

Either your reading comprehension is poor, or you're purposely reading in unstated commentary to fit your argument. At no point did I say Urban recruits "thugs;" he has shown questionable commitment (particularly at Florida, as you agreed) to recruiting "high-character student athletes."

LOL. That is not what happened with Hyde. Not even close.  And considering he was actually a victim of assault, you think Meyer suspending him 3 games was too lenient? Give me a break. Just another jealous hater.
