it depends on what he has been doing so far this season hopefully he has been traaining like a madman and is in terrific shape. If so then he can step right in and crush QB's playing rush DE is just pin your ears back and get to the QB so there shouldn't be much disparity between his last game and the one he gets to play in this season.
Good Luck Spence we would love to have you back. For those who are on a moral soap box then just remember we are here because we love OSU football and we like to win, unless you are thinking about hiring the players or letting one of them marry your daughter why do you care if the do something that has zero impact on you and your family? That is one of the bullshit things about the internet everyone wants to judge and let everyone know how they would handle it, but think about it who cares? I played football for 23 years from my first snap in pee wee till I tore ligaments in my foot and was done and football players are here for our entertainment and thats pretty much it. How many of you actually know the players and if you do or did 30 years ago how many are in your contacts on your cell phone? Quit making more of it than it is. So the kid used some drugs, he didn't hurt or commit a crime when he did and the only person that he did hurt was himself so like one of the other posters stated why would he be suspended for something that all other non sports scholarship students wouldn't hear a word about?
I am all Buckeye and always wish the best for all our players, so just sit back and take it for what it is.... Entertainment for us guys that are either too old to play anymore or never got the chance to play past HS. Go Bucks and let Noah play!!
