Noah Spence Suspended for Ecstacy, Says Family

Noah Spence at the WHAC.

News of Noah Spence's suspension in the lead-up to the Orange Bowl shocked Ohio State fans, but it could have been worse according to an exclusive interview with Spence's family attained by central Pennsylvania's ABC27: the Big Ten wanted to originally suspend OSU's star defensive end for a year.

It's standard procedure for every player to get tested prior to the Big 10 championship game, and Spence's family says he was shocked when his drug test came back positive.

The family says Spence unintentionally took the drug when he was given an open drink by people he didn't know at a party.

His father says the Big 10 originally suspended Spence for one year because they consider ecstasy a performance-enhancing drug. The NCAA considers ecstasy a street drug, which carries a lesser penalty.

Unsure of how ecstasy could be considered a "performance-enhancer," but thankfully cooler heads prevailed when Spence's family appealed the one-year ban. (They appealed the three-game suspension to no avail.)

UPDATE: Spence plans to sue the Big Ten over his three game suspension.

The B1G considering ecstasy an performance enhancing drug seems like something off of The Onion.

It's exactly like Ross Rebagliati being stripped of his medal for Snowboard Giant Slalom in the '98 Winter Olympics for having THC in his system -- it was considered a performance-enhancing substance (it was eventually overturned, since Marijuana wasn't technically a banned substance at the time).  
Hell, he should've got another medal for winning the race while stoned.

lippertini's picture

Yeah, though stupid, I can see where the confusion comes from.  Ecstasy is supposed to contain MDMA, which is in the amphetamine family.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDMA

TNbuckeye91's picture

From my experiences taking it, I would consider quite the opposite of enhancing. I wouldn't wanna play football, I'd wanna be raving and dancing and hugging everyone.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I have never heard of anyone considering Ecstasy a PED. If that were the case, we could do all our recruiting at Coachella.
The shorter suspension is clearly what was called for here. Hopefully a learning experience for Spence and all others.

The only performance Extacy is enhancing is dancing and sex.
If he really did get dosed, id go back to that house with posse and find out who the F it was.

BuckToAsT's picture

What makes you think the B1G was referring to football when they suspended him for performance-enhancing drug use?  Maybe they were afraid his tackle-for-loss dances would get too outrageous.

Chief B1G Dump's picture

In one of the other 15 threads about this, I posted that unless the B1G has competitive sex and/or dancing that this was dumb.
Maybe they should just remove from the PED catagory and ban narcotics...because they are illegal.

But i am eagerly awaiting the "this is all clearly a cultivated drug use friendly program created by arch criminal harborer Urban Meyer and his circle of trust" articles.

Don't forget Rutgers and Maryland being added to the conference for their cable markets ...... which won't be worth squat in a decade when everyone is getting their TV via the internet.

Jeeves's picture

The magical internet that floats through the air and magically appears on your computer screen from seemingly nowhere? 

BuckGnome's picture

It's a simple fact that the number of cable TV subscribers in the US is shrinking as more and more people cut the cord and rely on services like Netflix etc.   Conference networks, such as The B1G Network, don't make a dime off of the growing number of broadband subscriptions cable companies like TWC are selling.
Speaking of TWC, there is a lot of talk they may get bought by Charter or even Comcast as the industry enters an era of consolidation

BuckeyeSaab's picture

Your flippant response is in error.  The Big Ten gets a piece of every single TV that has the BTN on a standard tier.  By moving into the NYC and DC markets they are trying to get on the standard tiers of a much larger number of TV.  However, the BTN get ZERO dollars from internet access fees.  So, as people move away from cable the plus side of MD and Rutgers will diminish while the down side of their ineptness most likely will not.

Now this isn't to say they won't develope a new model that works, but under the current structure Buckgnome is correct.

I'm sorry for not being sorry.

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

Find someone actually connected with the B1G saying that Rutgers & Maryland were added for cable markets. Ultimately all you are going to find is speculation from the media because no one who has access to the actual long term media plans is talking.
On the other hand there are some interesting quotes from the Maryland people who were granted access and came away shocked by what they saw, specific mention was made of forward looking internet plans. Now if you want to complain about the two schools being added merely for media markets, you might have a legitimate gripe.
That being said there is no evidence the 'B1G cable gambit' exists outside of those have no idea what the long term media plans of the conference really look like.

jccavanaugh's picture

Is Spence 21 yet? Is underage drinking a suspendable offense? Honestly don't know the answer to either question, but if they are "no" and "yes," respectively, defending yourself against an E charge by admitting drinking might not be the best idea.

d5k's picture

I'm guessing the answers are "no" and "maybe, depending on priors and what else happened".  

Run_Fido_Run's picture

The guys who work in the Big Ten's front office spend most of their time blathering at meetings. Well, when they all took ecstasy one night, every sentence that came out of their mouths became kernels of pure genius! Hence, they concluded that ecstasy must be a performance enhancing drug.
A few weeks later, at the regional conference of the Athletics Conference Bigwigs Association, they discovered that cocaine is a PED too.

So during this Ecstasy induced meeting was when they came up with the Leaders and Legends divisions idea. Im sure they were Ecstatic!

im sorry but ecstasy is a serious drug that is known for causing death among teens.  If Noah was spiked with E at a party, the police should step in and do an investigation and find out who drugged him.  Its one thing to know when you are on E and its another to not. Noah is lucky to still have his health. 

O-H-I-O  for life

2014nationalchamps's picture

on a side note, a guy I went to hs with was spiked with lsd at a party. He walked home unknowing that he was tripping, saw a demon and killed it. The demon turned out to be a shaggy looking homeless man. He is now in prison for the rest of his life.

O-H-I-O  for life

wmbuckeye557's picture

For the spiked defense to work he would have to let the police or coaches know right away. It doesn't appear that happened. 

aabuckeye's picture

What else he supposed to say once he's caught, right? If he knew something was slipped to him he should've told somebody, maybe even get independently tested. I wonder if coach's have a protocol for something like this. Unfortunately, they probably should.

chemicalwaste's picture

Not E but same type of thing. Some kid at comfest was tripping his ass off and saw demons crawling all over him, so he tried to fight them off. He lost. I would guess he ended up stabbing himself 15-20 times judging by the look of him when they were carting him out. One of those images that will never leave my mind.
Anyway, his parents tried to say his friend did it. Then the police pro ed thaat they were all self inflicted. Then they tried to say someine drugged him. That also wasnt the case.

The moral of the story: dont do drugs and dont put yourself in bad situations.

3,2,1 until this makes the top story on ESPN.com as a black eye for OSU and B1G.

harrybuckeye's picture

I think it's consisted a ped because it often contains amphetamines. Also, don't forget that doc ellis the no hitter on lsd... regardless of whether or improve performance or not, you don't want osu athletes taking this stuff. It was slipped in my drink is a pretty weak argument of you ask me and being underage he prob shouldn't be drinking anyways - especially during football season and right before big game. Not that I ever drank in college or anything.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

Close, but it's actually classified as an amphetamine, meaning it's in the stimulant category.  These guys don't take the drugs and then classify them individually.

Does anyone else wonder why they test the whole team for making the B1G game. Also why he was allowed to play in the game? (Also why was Bullough, likely a similar situation allowed to play). Do other leagues do this?

southbymidwest's picture

WMEBUCKEYE557 I would imagine they are tested right before or after the game. Results might not be in until a few days later.

DJRoss926's picture

Where did they announce Bullough was suspended for drug use?

Wesleyburgess1's picture

When it rains it pours. I just really hope for Noahs sake that this was on accident. X is a very dangerous drug and very addictive too. Hopefully he can learn from this and move forward. I was hoping he would be a captain on defense next year but I guess not.

Fuck the B1G. They need to learn how to run a conference and start helping the schools compete with the SEC. Instead they do everything they can to hold everyone back.

flipsaari2's picture

it is not at all highly addictive and the pure form of X, methylenedioxy-methylamphetamine (MDMA), is one of the safest drugs you can take. since it is illegal, no one knows the quality of an X pill they get unless they have a test kit. the pulls can be cut with numerous other actually harmful drugs. that is where the danger lies. due to the lack of regulation, we see ecstasy deaths because of chemicals in the pill outside of MDMA. 
 
do some research.

Optimistic Buckeye Pessimist's picture

This is absolutely false and incredibly irresponsible of you to present MDMA as a safe drug.  I would suggest that you take you own advice and do some research.

Read my entire screen name....

I have done plenty of research and even took a class at Ohio State taught by Gary Wenk about the psychology of drugs.

look into Professor David Nutt, former 'drug czar' in the UK, who was fired because his studies didnt agree with what the government thought was bad for you.
 
and oh, look, number one is alcohol.
 
most deaths caused from taking the pure drug MDMA are due to over hydration and/or heat exhaustion from dancing all night without break, and i place that on irresponsibility of the user.

OSU_ALUM_05's picture

He may have gotten spiked, but why put yourself in a situation where that stuff is around .... how hard is it to make it through college without ingesting an illegal drug? Smh

lippertini's picture

Did you drink alcohol before you turned 21?

OSU_ALUM_05's picture

Maybe once or twice - but not to intoxication (I'm admittedly a goody goody).  Listen, I'm not naive enough to think that kids don't drink before becoming "of age," I'm just saying that the poor judgment happened before anything was slipped into a drink.  
Here's my soapbox/high horse moment:
You're a talented athlete.  You're getting a free education.  In Spence's case, you're likely to be drafted in the first couple rounds of the NFL draft in a year or so.  Is it really asking that much to not go to parties where people are using alcohol and (apparently) illegal drugs?  He's going to miss 2 games next year ..... 2 auditions for an employer who might hand him a 7 figure check before he ever steps foot into his place of business.  Seems like potentially a high price to pay for one night out on the town.
I'm sure I'm in the minority on this ... just my take.

brandonbauer87's picture

It's a dumb rule, but Spence deserves a little blame here. If he was drugged, he should have gone to the staff and let them know. It sounds like he knew when it happened. If this story is true, it's better to let someone know before you fail a test, not after. The story sounds like something you tell your parents when you get caught. If I was taking Ecstasy as a student athlete, my parents would kill me. I'd find a story to justify it being in my drug test. I don't know Noah Spence, so I can't say if this is what he did. 

PittBuckeye's picture

Having been a college athlete who consumed alcohol before he was 21 I can tell you the last thing I would have done is go to the coaches and tell them that someone I didn't know handed me a drink, and I think that it was drugged. Right or wrong, not something most kids are going to do.

aabuckeye's picture

That'll change now. A player would rather have a defense handy for getting suspended up to a year even if it means getting reamed by the coach for underage drinking.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

If Spence hadn't previously taken ecstasy, it's possible that he wouldn't have known at the time that his drink had been spiked. People on ecstasy are more apt to feel euphoric than loopy. Spence was having a few drinks, so he might have felt that he was experiencing a combination of a good alcohol buzz and a warmly inviting party scene.
Maybe he looked at a girl in his posse and thought, "damn, I never realized before how hot she was!" but it wouldn't necessarily register with him as impairment. 

HandsOfSweed's picture

Bingo! This happened to me @ Kent State back in 1996. I completely believe Spence's story. I KNOW FOR A FACT that this is completely possible/probable.
I mean, he COULD be lying, but I highly, highly doubt it.

Olemissbuckeye's picture

I'm pretty sure that happened to me at OSU in the late nineties. I had two beers while at a bar once and was wrecked and absolutely not in an alcohol drunk way. I was even fuzzy the next day. I never told anybody and honestly wasn't sure if I was just coming down with some kind of crazy flu or what had happened. As a male I had a hard time thinking anyone would put something in my beer. Maybe it was meant for someone else, maybe someone was just being a jackass and didnt care what beer they dosed. Anyway, Im still skeptical about accidental ingestion but heck yeah it can happen off campus.

buckeyepastor's picture

Ok, so he violated the conference rules for the drug, but in truth OSU should punish him for taking Ecstasy, even involuntarily, anyways.  Though I think it warrants a one game suspension, not three.   Still would have missed the bowl game, I suppose, but no more than that.   
A year?  For Ecstasy?  Are they high?

Ecstasy is a stimulant and a psychedelic drug. Stimulants can be considered to be performance enhancing. Stimulants can make a person more alert and provide a person with more energy. The ingredients for ecstasy can be purchased OTC. By taking too much of a decongestant like Sudafed a person can test positive for amphetamines.

Just heard on the Fan that Spence is suing B1G for the suspension. 
 
Awesome.

Squirrel Master's picture

as someone who may or may not have taking said drug, there is no way you are not aware you are on something like it or just as strong. Unless the drug has been weakened a lot from the last time I "reviewed it", there is no way he could be like "I think someone slipped it to me". He would have known. Its not easily confused with being drunk.
If he didn't knowingly take it, It would have been more likely if someone offered him it disguised as a painkiller. Many athletes have no issue taking a Percocet for fun, maybe with a beer. He probably wouldn't want to say he took a painkiller from someone and it ended up as ecstacy.
 
but a spiked drink and not knowing what the effects are like, come on! there is no way he is that nieve. Especially with Bosa hanging with him. There is no way Bosa isn't aware of Ecstacy with his trance background. I find his innocence a bit far fetched.
at the same time, the B1G is getting ridiculous.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

buck-I.8's picture

I have similar issues, except you really don't see E pills around anymore, so the percocet story might not have much plausibility (unless they were parachuting or something). 
The issue is that you'd know a drink with molly in it just by the taste, it isn't subtle. 
That said, with what 'molly' usually ends up being, he's lucky the MDMA is all he tested positive for.

I'm curious as to what really happened though it is likely we'll never know.

I hope it wasn't his fault and hope he weathers this storm and learns from the experience and is able to grow in life because of it.
