ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that sources have confirmed that WR Duron Carter and DL Rob Robe will be academically ineligible to play in the Rose Bowl on January 1 in Pasadena.
Rose does not surprise me at all, as his
play effort clearly went downhill as the year went on and he has had his history of troubles in the classroom. Carter, on the other hand, seems to have been playing too much X-box Live this quarter and it is quite shocking to see Cris's son get such poor marks in his first quarter at Ohio State. Luckily the school employs a freshman forgiveness program and Carter should be able to get back on track and start hitting the books as he'll have plenty of time to get his priorities straight while he's watching his teammates take on the Ducks.
