When asked to explain Baugh's suspension, head coach Urban Meyer said it was because of "stuff" Monday afternoon.

Ohio State tight end Marcus Baugh has been suspended for two games for what head coach Urban Meyer called "stuff" Monday afternoon. 

Baugh, a redshirt freshman who was cited for underage drinking twice last year, didn't make the team's trip to Baltimore for a 34-17 win against Navy Saturday. He won't suit against Virginia Tech this weekend either. 

Baugh, who came to Columbus from Riverside, Calif., as one of the nation's top recruits, was expected to provide depth behind tight ends senior Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett after turning some heads during spring ball. 

Baugh was first charged with underage drinking last summer before a committing a second offense in January

“First incident it happened, my mind was everywhere. I just wanted to transfer, I didn’t like it here,” he said in April. “The second incident happened, I might get kicked out, I’m thinking about what I can do, if I can even transfer and stuff like that. Definitely after my second incident. I thought I was gone."

Added Baugh last spring:

“It definitely opened my eyes. I’m out of chances, I have to do this ... I’m just doing what they want me to do. I’m showing that I’m not a bad person."
