Bucknuts is reporting that Ohio State sophomore linebacker Dorian Bell was suspended for the year. Alongtheolentangy picked up the story, which is where I saw it, and said that it would be for a team rule that he broke for a third time.
Dorian Bell suspended according to Bucknuts
Write Pryor's research papers.
so they get Ohio Bobcats to do Pryor's papers.
The bigger question would actually be...they have rules at OSU? More of a revelation really.
He was suspended for the Sugar Bowl and would be suspended for the opening game, which I suppose was for the second violation. It didn't seem like he would be a starter, despite the recruiting guru stats but was solidly in the two deep.
that Tressel gets fired, Dantonio hired and Bell will be playing by the Miami game....
Are buckeye and sparty threads considered OT?
Can't lay off the reefer
Make a Bong sound
The moral of this story is that if you are going to break the rules at OSU, make sure you are a starter.
... or the HC
And the hits keep comin' comin' comin'.
If he's suspended for this year, does this count as a redshirt?
I'm assuming so, unless he already took one. The only requirement is that you can't actually compete in interscholastic competition.
OSU might prevent him from filing the paperwork, but I doubt they would.
Although this might be true, does this annoy anyone? To me, if you get suspended for something that warrants an entire year's suspension, I don't think you should get another crack at those games...
He red shirted his freshman year.
The same thing happened to a tight end at Georgia 2 seasons ago, Bruce Figgins. Suspended for the year = forced redshirt.
Edit: Well, I guess that would of been the case if he wasn't redshirted already.
The more important questions does this mean that ohio state has a 4 stike and your out policy?
I'd ask if this was something that might generate some Fulmer Cup points... but I think Auburn has it pretty much wrapped up at this point. Everyone else is fighting (and stealing, and drinking, and driving on suspended licenses) for second place.
This is an internal team issue. The comments seem to think he loves him the reefer, which would be a Fulmer Cup issue, but he'd have to get caught by the police to help OSU in the standings there.
First Tressel embarrasses the conference by lying.
Then Nebraska embarrasses its future conference by getting kicked out of the Association of American Universities.
Now Penn State is the only conference team on the Fulmer Cup leaderboard.
Maybe Michigan should become an independent.
Kinda shocked Sparty's spring break fracas isn't enough for at least six points.
Anyone else find it weird that Virginia, Duke and Rice make up 3 of the top 7 Fulmer Cup teams? Please tell me BYU and Yeshiva are 11 and 12.
Suspended for the season at tsio? I didn't read the article, but he must have committed something like high treason? master-minded a mass terror plot? Email forwarding?
much team left by September.
...cause there won't be much of a coaching staff to coach whomever is left.
he turned down a tattoo. I thought the 'rule' was you're supposed to get one.
Actually I am happy to see the mid-majors making a nice run in the fulmer cup. Rice is truly making the state of Texas proud.
but soon to be shortened until Sept 2nd after he works his way back on the team.
He didn't take enough money from boosters 3 times. DONE FOR THE YEAR!
Art Schlichter finally got indicted for 13 felony counts (12 theft and 1 racketeering). Any chance tosu gets special mention thanks to Art? It did involve the purchase and sale of tickets to sporting events.
