Ohio State football: Hyde dismissed from team, sources say
The Columbus Dispatch ^ | 7/22/2013 | Tim May

Posted on 07/22/2013 11:22:36 AM PDT by VideoPaul

Sources told The Dispatch this morning that Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has dismissed No.1 running back Carlos Hyde, who was named as a person of interest in a weekend assault against a female in a Downtown bar, and that he is still looking into a situation regarding starting cornerback Bradley Roby in Bloomington, Ind., over the weekend.

According to Monroe County court records, Roby was arrested early yesterday morning in Bloomington and is facing preliminary charges of battery resulting in bodily injury. Sources told The Dispatch he was asked to leave a bar after a disturbance, refused, and was subdued by bouncers at the bar before being taken into custody.

Wow...if **THE** Ohio State University is willing to do the right thing and enforce discipline on its players, despite the fact that it might hurt "The Program", then this is a major blast of fresh air. Are you listening, Notre Dame?

As noted later in the article, this thug is on all kinds of NFL radars, and I don't doubt that the National Felons League will welcome him with open arms.

I note with interest that according to the article, he "opted" to return for his JUNIOR year, which is his fourth year in school. meaning, he's taken four years to do what you're supposed to be able to do in two. He must be taking REALLY tough classes to be on the six year (and counting) plan. His major, you ask? Molecular Biology? Differential calculus? Applied physics with a concentration in fluid dynamics? Nope, wrong on all counts. His majors, according to the university's athletics web page, is African hyphen American and African studies.

Virginia Tech had to do the same. Player’s GirlFriend was attacked by player’s Ex-GF and he got involved in the fight.

I’ve jested with an O.U. grad friend that to win big games the team members have to be sprung on weekend release.
I’m not really too far off the mark.

If Urban Meyer cleans it up, hurray.

There is hardly a college football team that doesn’t have this kind of crap going on...that’s why I’m on the verge of stopping following it.

I realized that when I root for the Gators, I’m cheering the laundry only, not the guys wearing it.....and I just don’t need it anymore, until it gets cleaned up.

A few years ago Tennessee had a major problem with the high number of criminals on the team. Many of those have gone on to the pros and continued their escapades.

There was some speculation that Urban left Florida because the administration was starting to come down on him for all of the arrests of his players.

My thoughts on this are: You need to STAY THE HELL OUT OF TROUBLE if you are an athlete. You need to behave BETTER than the norm expected of students (you know, getting a hundred thousand dollar university education with books, room and board included for FREE where other have to actually PAY for it). You keep your nose clean. If trouble starts you RUN, not walk, RUN the other way. Avoid even the first appearance of impropriety. You are privileged. You are expected to act better.

If enough thugs get shown the door and have their full ride scholarships cancelled, perhaps this will cause a change in the incidence of thuggery in the national Felons League. And a restoration in respect for “the program” at whatever school.

If he's not too guilty, it's a career-enhancer in the National Felons League.

They have watched people get away with crime all their life. In an urban environment, criminals are protected from scrutiny. Think of it as like the Mafia. No one wants to snitch.
The players think it works the same way for them except they lost the anonymity and protection of the street. You can fight dogs in the hood and get away with it. You can smoke weed and bust up your woman. But in a lily white college environment, that won’t play.

Not sure how you can blame anyone BUT the actual idiot player getting arrested. Urban Myer did NOT recruit these kids and was not standing next to these guys in the bar egging them on to punch a girl or resist arrest. Geezes, I don’t know the coach but I’m pretty sure he was in his bed those nights sleeping soundly and acting like an adult.

Get over it people...blame the ones who committed the da*n crime!

But it HAS been playing. They HAVE been protected by those in “The Program”. What will be interesting to watch is if suddenly, “The Program” spits out the thugs.

Right now they have the protection, its gone from the protection of the street to the protection of “The Program”. If that goes away in large part, whoa nelly, this game just changed.

Are you listening, Notre Dame??

The story of Urban Whiner leaving Florida is strange at best.

He claims he's sick, takes a short leave of absence, comes back for a while, then leaves for good mumbling about a medical condition with his heart. He leaves, becomes a commentator, less than a year later takes one of the most pressure packed coaching jobs on the planet with Ohio State.

I'm guessing he leaves them as bizarrely as Florida. It always struck me as odd that he left for a bad heart, then took THAT position, with a fan base and an administration that expects you to win and doesn't give a damn how you do it.

I read later that Gator Nation believes he was forced to leave by his wife. That his "medical condition" was a hot graduate student he was having a fling with.

Whatever happened, his leaving was strange, and his taking the job with the Buckeyes is even stranger. I am guessing he leaves Ohio with the same kind of hangover as he left Florida.

The program can’t protect players after they are arrested. VT’s kicker was charged after being involved in a break-in and fight over a drug deal gone bad. He was booted from the team and missed the bowl game (Tech lost on a missed field goal). He was re-instated but only after a lot of work by the player.
Our RB was kicked off this week. The team appeared apathetic to having him back, probably because of other issues. Teams are learning when to cut their losses.

But look at Notre Dame. Players are getting into scrapes there and “the Program” which runs South Bend, sweeps it under the rug. Nobody Saw nuthin’. The Notre Dame football program KILLED A GUY and paid a 40k fine. Notre Dame makes that much in Pepsi sales at ONE home game...probably by halftime. Look at Penn State. It took an epic scandal which became national news for that culture of the university being life support for “The Program” to change.

What has happened today needs to happen over and over and over again. Will it? Will the people who run “The Program” at any given school who wants to become bigger than it is now start cherry picking strong players who can’t behave just so they can be a bigger program? Will the NFL start to reject those who engage in thuggery out of hand?

That would be nice, and would turn football back into a game of intellect and honor, a game played by gentlemen where strategy is more important than street violence in pads and helmets.

Do I think that the people in the sport have the capacity for being gentlemen warriors and using their brains? Absolutely, I do. But I don’t think that will happen until a major culture change forces them to. Perhaps this is the start of that change.

Football is nothing more than modern gladiator sports. Majority of the players couldn’t get a job at McDonalds and if not for football wouldn’t be anywhere near a college. Start enforcing an actual academic standing for one, that might help.

Do away with signing days and other stuff. Make these kids pick colleges like anyone else does and show up ready to pay for it yourself. Try out for team, if you make it and are a star, then you get your scholarship.

It would probably surprise you how many players don’t get on a team because they mentally can’t hack it. I am a HS official and I hear coaches talk all the time about players who can’t remember plays. No matter how well they do, they’ll never get to the next level.

Side note:
Professional wrestler George the Animal Steele played football for Michigan State despite the fact he could not read or write at the time due to dyslexia. He later got a Masters degree and retired as a teacher.
