IMO, There may be more to it than failed drug screens. Spence's issue was failed drug screens. Smith's issues go beyond failed drug screens including other problems that concerned Myer and team culture. For Smith, to many consequences put an end to his Buckeye career in football.
They have positive things to say about drugs until the costs and negative consequences catch up with them. Most people age out of using drugs because drugs cause too many problems in their lives.
I'm sure OSU will announce it soon enough.
From NCAA.org. The penalty for positive tests of both performance-enhancing and street drugs is strict and automatic. Student-athletes lose one full year of eligibility for the first offense (25 percent of their total eligibility) and are withheld from competition for a full season. A second positive test for street drugs results in another lost year of eligibility and year withheld from competition. A second positive result for PED usage will render the student-athlete permanently ineligible.
What is the penalty for failing a school-issued drug test?
Each NCAA member is responsible for determining whether to establish an institutional drug-testing program, at which time the school would be responsible for determining applicable penalties. If a testing program is established, though, the school is obligated to enforce the penalties. Failure to do so can lead to NCAA sanctions.
From what I have read, he has been dismissed from the team.
I'm not jumping to conclusions until the facts are out and Myer clarifies the issues.
Does that mean we will be seeing the Bosa Nova? We can do the Bosa Nova that we know so well :-)
Nova in Spanish means it won't go. :-)
Great information Jeremy. Keep up the great work. I suspect Cager will be a buckeye.
The Nova won't be so super against the Buckeyes defense.
The wife and I are going to the game Saturday. My wife hasn't seen a Buckeyes game before. She is in for a treat. We will be going to the Skull session first. It is a great performance by the OSU Band. I get goose bumps when the Band enters the stadium. She will love the game. My two wishes are for the Bucks to win and for the weather to cooperate. We're dressing warm and taking a blanket just in case. I'll wave to you all during the game. We will be in 5B. Not the greatest seats but not the worse either. At least we will be under cover and hopefully out of the wind. Go Bucks!!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Bucks!! Welcome Mr. Stump to the Buckeye nation.
I think bye weeks can hurt a teams' performance the following week. MSU has a bye week before playing the Buckeyes. I believe that can be a good thing for us Buckeye fans.
The last couple of years I haven't seen passes over the middle like I have seen this year. Also, the tight ends are in the passing game more than past years.
Isn't South Dakota in Australia??
Samuel is recovering from an ankle injury.
On a couple of plays Boas was out of position and the running back ran through the hole left That Bosa was supposed to fill. The coach let Bosa know about when he came to the sidelines.
Question, where does eleven warriors tailgate? We're coming for the Rutgers game and I'd like to meet some of you Buckeye fans and buck it up. Does anyone know when the Skull Session start for the Rutgers game? Me wife will be seeing the Buckeyes live for the first time. Go Bucks!!!
Great Keyshawn Johnson article. I like the part where he said that it's about the way you set it up when running the reverse.
Read on Twitter Stump just received an offer from Ohio State.
Young and talented. They need the experience and it doesn't happen overnight. It will take time for the team to learn the playbook and a different offensive scheme.
He sounds like a guy with a great attitude and willing to do what it takes He shows a lot of respect for Grant.
