Very odd situation. 

From the story: "It is not yet known the exact bar where the attack took place. A spokeswoman for Columbus police told NJ Advance Media the department did not have an immediate record of the incident, but were aware of Lee's tweets regarding it."

And, "Eventually bouncers pushed Lee outside the bar."

Yes, it's horrible to have a two-time Big Ten QB of the year, and 2016 Silver Football award winner as the QB at Ohio State.

In your Washington example I believe it was their horrible non-conference schaedule that received criticism, more so than their conference schedule.

In theory I try to root for all B1G teams in bowl games, but when it comes down to it, and I see TTUN on TV playing, I just can't bring myself to do it. My hatred for them is much greater than an conference pride.

Fernando Lovo used to be at Ohio State, and followed Tom Herman to Houston and then to Texas.

Speaking of which, Hartline very rarely finished a whole season.  He was injured quite a bit in the NFL..

FWIW in the NFL he played in 16 games 5 of his 7 seasons, playing in 12 games in '10 and '15 seasons.

At Ohio State he played in every game the three seasons he was at Ohio State.

I can't speak for his high school career.

Yes, I do.  Do you?

But Roby’s season, like his team’s, ended in disappointment. Roby suffered a knee injury in the loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game, though he gutted it out the best he could. He feared he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but the actual injury — a hyperextended knee and deep bone bruise — was bad enough.

His knee didn’t heal in time for him to play in the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson.

“Bone bruises take six to eight weeks to heal,” Roby said. “I only had a three- to four-week turnaround. My knee was so swollen that I couldn’t practice. That last week before the game, I could run a little bit more and tried to go out and do some things, but I just wasn’t ready.”

His absence was keenly felt, as All-America receiver Sammy Watkins torched the Buckeyes’ vulnerable secondary.

“I wanted to play that game,” Roby said. “I wanted to end my career going against some top guys and leave my mark at Ohio State with that game. Unfortunately, my injury prevented me from that.”
