My 2020 suspension guess is that if Sevyn Banks isn’t wearing the #7 jersey next season the equipment manager will be suspended.

2014

Earlier this month, Michigan coach Brady Hoke suspended sophomore wide receiver Csont'e York indefinitely for an inability to "meet team standards." On Tuesday, Ann Arbor police supplemented Hoke's hazy words with crystal clear surveillance footage of York sucker punching a 23-year-old man in the face outside of a bar.

After playing 46 games for the Wolverines in his career, Frank Clark, 21, will not be one of them.

The senior from Cleveland Glenville High School was kicked off the team Monday by coach Brady Hoke, following first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence and assault charges in Sandusky, Ohio.

What I find interesting is “no one on current roster wears #52”.  2 players wore 52 in 2017.  One was senior Mason Cole.  

Can anyone remind me what happened the last time an OSU player sold team issued apparel?  (Look at Adams in 2010 if you forgot).

Didn't happen while he was at Michigan but didn't Braylon get into a barfight in downtown Cleveland when he was with the Browns and subsequently ended up punching one of LeBron's close friends in the face (which made him public enemy number 1 in Cleveland considering LeBron was seen as Cleveland royalty at the time)? Braylon seems to have gotten his shit together now but he wasn't the most stable guy mentally during his playing days.

2011 was when shit started to hit the fan with Brendan Gibbons and Taylor Lewan so I wouldn't call that season clean. See the copied article for reference. Some shady shit was going down in Ann Arbor during that time period (even if Gibbons and Lewan weren't punished at the time).

Fuck both those shitheels. TTUN gets to claim no moral superiority over anything this decade. Also fun fact, Brendan Gibbons was the hill that MMan decided to die on which got him banned from 11W (the older folk around these parts will no what I’m talking about).

Considering Gibbons was eventually arrested and kicked off the team for what he did (5 years too late which blatantly shows how incompetent Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke were) how the hell can any scUM fans defend him at this point?

With 85 scholarship athletes and another 20 or so walk-ons. With only 1 suspension so far this year is actually very good, bordering on excellent. 18-23 year olds tend to not always make the best decisions especially in a place of higher education. Mistakes are usually the highest of education. So if your talking less than 3% of the team will serve a suspension...well that's awesome.

HS

I totally understand why this is a valid topic to write about, but it’s not much fun to see this timeline of past suspensions. Let us hope the list ends with Young for quite some time. I also suppose it’s better that this is happening in Rutgers week versus Michigan week.

2011 suspensions killed the season before it began (Joe Bauserman was leading the squad)
2014 Noah Spence left all fans wanting to know "what could have been.." with Bosa but NBD we won the Natty
2015 is a conspiracy to me in regards that if JT decided to not drive while buzzed I think we beat sparty and maybe repeat as champs. Right when we looked like the team was coming together this happened
2019 is not killing us but it's frustrating now knowing when Chase will be back.
The other suspensions really didn't alter our season much unless you still believe all the Torrence Gibson hype that never surfaced

Was Cardale technically suspended for his "We ain't come to play school" Twitter rant?

I would sure as hell hope not.  Especially since Zeke was not suspended for calling out his coaches and declaring for the NFL immediately after the 2015 debacle vs. Sparty. 

HS

Cardale actually was suspended one game for that Tweet in 2012. Urban early on in his tenure at OSU was trying to make a statement that he wouldn't let the players run roughshod over him at OSU like they did at Florida so guys often got suspended for minor offenses during those years.

Technically he wasn't ever suspended, just immediately kicked off the team once the accusation was made public. It's a shame too because Dunn was in line to start at RB going into the 2016 season if he hadn't gotten caught up in that mess (giving Dunn's former number to Weber in 2016 was basically OSU savagely slamming the coffin door shut on Dunn's OSU career lol).

IIRC wasn't Hyde falsely accused of assault and basically forced to eat the suspension for the sake of optics? I have a feeling if Hyde had actually done what he was accused of doing in 2013 he wouldn't have just been suspended, he would've been kicked off the team altogether.

"Falsely accused" may be taking it too far. The video clearly showed that she made first contact and that (although she posed no threat to him, meaning he had no need to "defend himself") he took a return swipe at her that may or may not have made contact, but certainly wasnt going to hurt her, making it nothing like the implication from her initial report. She ended up not pressing charges, which resulted in him not pressing counter-charges. I'm not sure what would have happened had it gone to court, but it's possible they both could have been found guilty of a minor misdemeanor. I think justice was served legally (despite any possible technicalities), and Meyer enforced the higher standards of his team rules which perhaps you deem "optics."

HS
Dstacify's picture

Meyer during his early years at OSU was uber strict with his players because he wanted to set the record straight that he wouldn't completely lose the plot again like he did at Florida. As a result a lot of his players ended up serving suspensions for relatively minor infractions during his first couple of years here (though I can't remember if Mewhort and Stoneburner were ever punished by Urban for when they got caught and arrested for urinating in public in 2012).

Both had their scholarships pulled for the summer term, and had to earn their way back onto scholarship for the fall (to my knowledge, nothing was ever released publicly on what that involved, although there was speculation that it involved a heavy dose of Coach Mick)

HS
Dstacify's picture

Everybody on the team got a heavy dose of Coach Mick during the 2012 off-season. Meyer himself basically admitted during spring practice that year that a lot of guys came into spring practices completely out of shape (which goes to show how much of a downgrade the previous S&C program under Tressel was in comparison to what Mick has in place now). I was in particular pleasantly surprised at how well Johnathan Hankins played in 2012 because he had weight and conditioning issues during the years prior to Urban's arrival.

Sanitarian2's picture

You seem to be confusing or at least including team suspensions that are not related to NCAA investigations but rather failure to follow internal athletic policy with actual violations of NCAA rules for improper benefits and the like. Some were violations of Big Ten policy as well.

Not going to class or missing curfew or self defense in a bar suspensions are not related the NCAA regulations such as the most current or future I suppose suspension.

Noah Spence is not on this list for 2013. He didn't just get a suspension but a lifetime ban from ever playing in the B1G again due to his drug addiction which of course forced him to transfer from OSU. That was a pretty big one (especially considering it robbed us of the opportunity to see Spence and Joey Bosa become a dynamic duo of sorts).

Ohio State leads the country in self reporting minor infractions. It seems that others just turn a blind eye to their problems and hope for the best.

You mean like Baylor and PSU did? Somehow I think those situations proved that is NOT the right thing to do.

OSU is not in a position to have moral authority on those situations with the whole Dr. Strauss thing. Might not be football, but it's just as bad or worse.  

HS
Dstacify's picture

Which is why self-reporting isn't as bad as everyone thinks it is. The administration in place at the time was against self-reporting and chose to protect Dr. Strauss for some bizarre reason and that in the long run was a terrible decision. I absolutely do NOT think the current OSU administration would've tried to cover up Strauss's crimes like Andy Geiger and Co. did, ever since Gene Smith became AD OSU has had the opposite problem where they've at times been TOO forthcoming with their transgressions (which is can be a slippery slope with the NCAA but in criminal cases the NCAA has zero jurisdiction over that). Also what happened at PSU with Sandusky is widely considered to be the worst scandal in modern NCAA history because it involved children and nearly EVERYONE important at PSU at the time played an active role in covering it up for close to 20 years.

HS
Eph97's picture

I was actually thinking about this. Why does it happen to OSU every year? Dumber players who can't keep their mouth shut? Dumber bagmen? Why the hell do we not hear about SEC teams like Alabama going though this? There is so much smoke about Alabama but the only thing that was solid was Ha Ha Clinton Dix suspended for 2 games for the loan from his coach.

I suspect a ton of these suspensions would not exist if smoking weed was not banned.

The Chris Cicero and Tressel situation was pure idiocy on both parts. Cicero for sending the email and Tressel for acknowledging it. If Tressel just deleted the email without replying he would probably still be OSU coach today.

HS
Dstacify's picture

If Tressel had forwarded the e-mail to Gene and the compliance department like he should've he'd still be head coach today. Instead he chose to sit on it and hide the contents from everybody (including his bosses). That was the nail in the coffin for him (and part of me wonders if he regrets that decision now looking back since it effectively ended his coaching career).

11 Strong.

HS
Terrible Ted's picture

IIRC, Cicero sent the email to Tressel's official OSU account, which was subject to FOIA requests since it is a public institution. Very unlikely that it could have been completely scrubbed from the system, and it may have caused even more serious problems if he had tried. No doubt, Cicero was a hall-of-fame dumbass for creating a paper trail w/ Tress, but once the email hit his inbox the damage was done.

HS
Dstacify's picture

It wasn't Tress receiving the e-mail that got him in trouble. It was him choosing to lie to the NCAA about it. If he had been 100% forthcoming about the contents he could've saved his job.

11 Strong.

HS
Terrible Ted's picture

True. I didn't phrase that very clearly. When the email entered the OSU system, it all but guaranteed that the Tatgate scandal would eventually come to light. It was only a matter of time before the program would be damaged, but Tress making a false claim to the NCAA is what cost him his job.

BTW, I wrote the previous post before I saw yours. The formatting makes it look like  I was responding to you, but I was actually responding to Eph97's post.

HS
Dstacify's picture

The Tatgate scandal was coming to light no matter what. Tressel choosing to lie to the NCAA about it however made everything much worse and caused the punishments to spill over to the program itself (specifically Meyer's 2012 squad that went undefeated). Had Tressel been honest from the get go the worst that would've happened was the five players (Pryor, Herron, Adams, Posey, and Solomon Thomas) would've likely been suspended for at least five games in 2011. A Tressel-coached team could've probably overcome those suspensions in 2011 given the way the schedule looked at the beginning of the year (let's face it, Miami was a bad team that season and not a team we should've lost to 24-6). Fickell as well as he's doing now at UC was not ready to lead the program that season and as bad as Bauserman looked the real problem with the offense that year was fucking Jim Bollman calling plays (which doesn't happen if Tress is still on the sidelines).

A few things that are not strictly suspension related, but could be included since the players are mentioned:

Dominic Clarke was dismissed from the team in early 2012 after an OVI arrest.

JT Barrett was investigated for a domestic dispute in 2014 while recovering from the broken ankle. Eventually, no charges were filed. He wouldn't have been suspended from any games at the time because of the injury, and I didn't find any mention of him being suspended from team activities or other punishment.

No players received suspensions beyond the game ejections related to the melee after the ambush of Dontre Wilson during the 2013 Rivalry Game. However, the B1G later issued a public reprimand of Marcus Hall and the OSU coaching staff stemming from Hall's two-finger salute to the crowd in Ann Arbor.

In looking up the Clarke situation, the ESPN article mentions another player, Freshman DB DerJuan Gambrell, who was dismissed around the same time. Article cites violation of team rules as the reason. I couldn't find any evidence that Gambrell ever participated in a game for OSU. Upon researching further, I found the WTOL article reporting that Gambrell was shot and killed in July 2019, following a dispute w/ his girlfriend's brother.
