Urban Meyer won't suspend ejected Buckeyes

During Saturday’s Ohio State – Michigan rivalry, there was a brawl in the middle of the field, and three players were ejected from the game; two from Ohio State and one from Michigan.

Needless to say, OSU coach Urban Meyer is less than pleased with some of his players, and spoke about it with ESPN,

“I’ve dealt internally with the players, obviously Marcus Hall, Dontre Wilson and also there was another person who came off the bench that we had a discipline conversation already,” Meyer said during a teleconference Sunday. “Certainly I am going to handle the discipline of this situation.


“I have not heard from the Big Ten. We’re supposed to discuss it tonight, and also [athletic director] Gene Smith and I will discuss it shortly. I’m disappointed. There’s no place for fighting in football, and I think the Big Ten did an excellent job getting people out of there on both sides.”

Now it’s possible that suspensions will be handed out to the two players ejected from Ohio State, however, they won’t be handed out by Meyer or anyone else at the school. The Big Ten staff will have to decide whether or not to suspend them.

If any action is taken, it will obviously be a big blow to the Buckeyes who will face No. 11 Michigan State next week in the Big Ten Championship Game.
