Ex-five-star LB Dorian Bell suspended for all of ’11 by Buckeyes

Dorian Bell

Already suspended for this year’s season opener due to an “issue” last year, Dorian Bell has now added a much lengthier suspension to his Ohio State résumé, Bucknuts.com is reporting.

According to the website, the linebacker has been suspended for the entire 2011 season for violating an unspecified rule.  The Columbus Dispatch subsequently confirmed the suspension with head coach/Michigan billboard mockee Jim Tressel.

While the specific nature of the issue was not disclosed, Bucknuts reports that it was his third violation of the same rule.  The second violation landed the redshirt sophomore a suspension for the Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas and the ’11 opener against Akron.

Bell played in eight games last season — missing three due to a concussion — and was credited with nine tackles and .5 tackles for loss.

Coming out of Monroeville, Pa., in 2009, Bell was given a five-star rating by Rivals.com and was the No. 3 outside LB in the country according to the recruiting service.

    Does he still get to play in a Bowl Game vs an SEC team?

    Could his violation have been worse than all of Tressel’s violation, like lying multiple times to his bosses, fans and NCAA, covering up major violations, etc.? And Tressel only is missing 5 games….

    Ahhh more news from that classy community college.

    Will the school ask for a prorated return of the under the desk cash given to him by the vested liar and the bowtied weasel?

    If he was any good, he would have been kept eligible. He probably was overrated as a recruit and therefore deserves the suspension.

    That 00 Days without arrests could be broken and we’d never know it. Maybe it should be changed to days without multiple arrests. Perhaps there would be a day when we could hit 1 maybe even 2.

    Its pretty pathetic that our, All of D1 Football, standards are so low and our desire to win so high that we accept these thugs into our colleges.

    <—–Pretty darn tired of this stuff.
