If true, kick him off the team. I'll get some flak for saying that but if its true he needs to be kicked off. If its not, then he's not gone, its that simple.

It's time for OSU to show Berry the front door and slam it tight so he can't come back.

It's harsh, but even if we needed Berry, I would agree. We have to show we are at least trying to get ourselves back on the straight and arrow and the way to do that is punish very harshly. It will deter further incidents, hopefully.

BTdub, thanks for sparing us the gray box.

I think Berry has reached the point to where he's not worthy of a gray box.

Long live the southend.

Agree with everyone else. If true, he's got to go. As much as I've been a Berry backer, this is unacceptable behavior, especially at a time when we are under a microscope.  I don't know if I see him actually getting kicked off the team, but maybe at the very least they need to open the doghouse once perenially occupied by Ray Small.

He's clearly not learning from his mistakes and because of this, I think he's lost his privelidge and should be asked to leave the team.

Sucks when kids can't seem to get there things in order.

At this point, I'm sure even Jaamal would agree a change of scenery could be for the better.

I think he has some legit mental problems that need to be addressed. Either that or he needs a fresh start somewhere else.

Seriously, some of these OSU football players must be mentally disabled. That's gotta be the reason why they are STILL breaking the simplist of rules. OSU recruits mentally retarded athletes. It's either that or they are the most self-absorbed, narcissistic, selfish, individuals ever to walk campus who think that nothing can touch them and that they deserve everything (ie; Pryor). From standing on top of a campus building with a GUN (bb gun but still WHO THE HELL DOES THAT???...) to starting random fights at 2am to everything in between. I mean, my God, elementary children have more self discipline than these OSU players!! Unbelievable...

At least the basketball players seem somewhat intelligent

Pretty sure the statement 'OSU recruits mentally retarded athletes' is at best a bunch of hyperbole. That's a pretty absurd statement, IMO.

Nothing surprises me anymore with these young, dumb, undisciplined athletes. Especially football players.

Lighten up, people. He only committed a crime. It's night like he broke an NCAA rule.

Time to make examples.  Off the team for good, and start having no tolerance policies for repeat violators.  


Break the same rule twice and your gone for good.

Stupid Jackasses are ruining the face of Ohio State Football. You guys suck! Stay in your kennel until game time if you can't act like a human.

I read a comment on Buckeye Planet from a person that talked to a friend of Berrys in the stands at the Buckeye-Canes game that said Berry is a trouble maker, and has always been. Looks like we're seeing it unfold now.

Sounds to me like a real winner character-wise.  And a true winner of the "Who Deserves to be Kicked off the Football Team?" award.  Yelling at someone who got hit by a car..what a dick.

It's not like his departure from the team will set the team back any.  He's a guy who has largely done nothing on the field and if you count his run in with the police before he got to Ohio State's campus, this is 3 incidents where a law may have been broken. 

At some point you need to say enough is enough, no matter how talented someone is.  I wish they would've cut old Ray Ray loose a long time ago instead of putting up with his garbage for 4 years.  I guess when you are that immensely talented, things get to slide a little more.
