Ohio State announces suspension, not dismissal, for Carlos Hyde

Carlos Hyde AP

At least for now, Ohio State’s starting running back is a member of the football program.

Earlier today, the Columbus Dispatch reported that Carlos Hyde had been dismissed from the Buckeyes after allegedly punching a woman at a Columbus bar.  In a press release, head coach Urban Meyer offered some clarity to the situation by announcing that the running back had been indefinitely suspended from all football activities.

The release added that the suspension is the first step in the process, with further punishment, up to and including a dismissal, pending the outcome of the student code of conduct and criminal investigations.

Hyde has still yet to be officially charged in the incident.

“I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football program are constantly reminded of and are expected to honor,” Meyer said in a statement. “There are also expectations with regard to behavior. I expect our players to conduct themselves responsibly and appropriately and they will be held accountable for their actions.”

In addition to the news on Hyde, the school also acknowledged an incident involving star cornerback Bradley Roby.  Over the weekend, Roby was arrested by Bloomington (Ind.) police on an assault charge.  The junior was allegedly involved in a scuffle with the bouncers of a drinking establishment.

Thus far, the only punishment for Roby is being taken off the list of Buckeyes scheduled to speak at the Big Ten’s media days beginning Wednesday. As more information becomes available, the release states, Roby could face additional discipline.

But wait, there’s more…

In the same release, the school acknowledged recent legal incidents involving tight end Marcus Baugh and defensive lineman Tim Gardner.  Baugh was arrested for underage possession of alcohol and possessing a fake identification.  He is suspended for the season opener against Buffalo, and will lose the summer financial aid afforded student-athletes.

Gardner, on the other hand, will not be a Buckeye in 2013 after an arrest over the weekend in Columbus for obstruction official business.

“Swift, effective and fair discipline is the standard for our entire athletics program,” athletic director Gene Smith said in his statement. “I applaud Coach Meyer for his immediate actions.”

    Zero patience for any person who is lucky enough to get the chance to have a lucrative career playing a damn game and can’t keep out of trouble. He should be thrown off the team and I certainly hope that is the final outcome.

    C ya PUNK

    “I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football program are constantly reminded of and are expected to honor,” Meyer said in a statement.

    Was he actually able to say that with a straight face?

    OSU is making the Hurricanes look like saints. Nothing but thugs,punks and dirty players. That’s what you get when you have Urban Liar as a coach.

  4. grumpyoleman says: Jul 22, 2013 4:29 PM

    Stay classy OSU. Maybe Urban should start holding his Bible classes in the juvenile detention centers where he seems to do most of his recruiting from.

  5. barkleyblows says: Jul 22, 2013 4:30 PM

    Im positive none of these players would be disciplined if they played in the SEC.

    Or that crap hole college in Miami.

  6. joshuavkidd says: Jul 22, 2013 4:32 PM

    Cue the “oh you guys just want to pick on Urban…” comments from everyone in C-bus. Same story different day for that University.

  7. sdemp says: Jul 22, 2013 4:36 PM

    But of course. . . Urban Meyer would never jeopardize wins by doing the right thing.

    #win at all cost

    Think again, butter cup. Players have left and been kicked off the team by Golden and staff. So trying somethng else that makes you go to sleep.

    On a more positive note, Urban banned twitter so now you’ll have to rely on the police report to know what your palyers are up to.

    Welcome to UrbanLand OSU fans. As a Gator I can tell you this is just the beginning. But not to worry – Urban’s suspensions seldom last until the next important game. At least when OSU hired him he didn’t pull that “1% of the 1%” crap he pulled on us so you should have been forewarned.

  10. rickrock6661982 says: Jul 22, 2013 5:05 PM

    Meyer is such a phony. Covering up crimes, violations at every coaching stop, paying off people…he’s just a “win at all costs” guy ala Jim Tressel.

    Just ask Aaron Hernandez.

  11. tttrojan4life says: Jul 22, 2013 5:08 PM

    CUM will act in typical fashion- Hyde will be “dismissed” until the 2nd quarter of the first game. Roby’s punishment will be “handled internally” or “in-house”, i.e. 2 extra laps after practice. In CUM’s world the two players “indiscretions” are minor- see Hernandez and all the other low life thugs he recruited at Florida.

    The SEC has arrived in Columbus Ohio.

  13. gatorprof says: Jul 22, 2013 5:15 PM

    OSU fans….welcome to Gator fans world during the Meyer era.

    You love the wins, but you somehow feel dirty afterwards. Eventually, you will become disheartened constantly defending your team’s routine appearances on the police blotter. You will become embarrassed by stuff that is locally known, but somehow escapes media attention (hint: hide your co-ed assistants from the HC, lest he have a ‘heart attack’).

    There are reasons that Gator folks still love Spurrier much more than the than do Meyer.

  14. vincentbojackson says: Jul 22, 2013 5:21 PM

    AD Gene Smith is a clown. How does that guy still have a job after years of poor decision making. He has no credibility whatsoever when talking about institutional control or discipline.

  15. REDSKINSFORLIFE says: Jul 22, 2013 5:28 PM

    Why would ANYONE expect anything different out of an Urban Meyer run program? The record speaks for itself in that he harbored/encouraged a killer in Aaron Hernandez, and runs the dirtiest program in the history of college football. OSU needs to look at themselves on this one. One cheater/enabler after another as head coach at that school.

    ————
    As a fan of another SEC school, Spurrier was always liked more by the general populace within the conference than Meyer. Even though we were more often than not the targets of Spurriers jabs, there was always a gentlemans feel about it-just to create more interest in the game.

  17. barnesaintnoble says: Jul 22, 2013 5:52 PM

    Urban Meyer is a scumbag and Ohio State is a piece of shit – BUT that does not mean that Hyde and Roby shouldn’t be given a chance to explain or make up for their mistakes. This is their life we are talking about, we should all wait until any investigation completes into these incidents. I just don’t like the negative attention Meyer has been getting (and deserved) about Hernandez effecting other guys who allegedly made (mostly minor) mistakes now.

  18. thetooloftools says: Jul 22, 2013 5:53 PM

    You have to give the man due process which means he will miss the cup cake games and be ready for the Big 10 season opener.
    It is what it is.

  19. thermanmerman99 says: Jul 22, 2013 5:55 PM

    which suckeye program ends up on probation first? the basketball program or the football program? since they are experts in being on probation in both categories. what is funny is that these cheating scumbags at blowhio state still cant win anything even with blatantly cheating, have fun forfeiting wins during the urban liar era suckeye douchebags

  20. inhokewetrust says: Jul 22, 2013 6:04 PM

    Wait…u beat up a woman and u miss games against div AA..div 2 and 3 teams…that makes sense..btw OHIO signed players…play for me and enjoy a family environment..your pal hoke a mania

  21. mediocrebob says: Jul 22, 2013 6:48 PM

    What has the basketball program done? I actually think Motta is one of the cleaner coaches in college bball.

  22. tony34343434 says: Jul 22, 2013 6:58 PM

    This guy will miss NO time. Ohio state all of a sudden gaining morality?? They broke every rule in the book 10 times over and hired the biggest offender in the nation for bending the rules. Easy to suspend someone in july, lets see when they need him in October.

  23. nepo784 says: Jul 22, 2013 7:15 PM

    Classless school with a corrupt football coach

  24. dkhhuey says: Jul 22, 2013 7:22 PM

    Ah, when it comes to OSU, it appears that everybody on the planet is a expert at everything including criminal investigations, due process, and the judicial process! Word coming out of several fronts now pointing to the fact that the bar’s security video paints quite a different picture of what went down that night and he will be cleared of any wrong doing. But again, call me crazy, I actually like to wait for all of the facts/evidence to come out prior to making any judgments! I suggest those who haven’t already convicted and sentence Carlos to do the same! I’m guessing all of you other idiots should go back to internet school and work on your pseudo law and criminal investigations degrees and start all over!

  25. watchfullhose says: Jul 22, 2013 7:38 PM

    HA! Some brilliant comments in here…freaking geniuses!

  26. bigbuckeye76 says: Jul 22, 2013 7:42 PM

    Weak responses here by most… Love to know which “clean” programs you are all fans of?

    What a joke. Don’t you ever get tired of throwing stones in this glass house?

    At least he didn’t kill anyone… right ND fan?

    At least he didn’t rape children in your facilty…right PSU fan?

    At least he didn’t get cought masterbating on someones porch… right Michigan fan?

    At least he didn’t steal someones credit card…right Alabama fan?

    Yeah….round and round we go…

    Good ol’ Urb the enabler. The legend continues

  29. ytownjoe says: Jul 22, 2013 8:02 PM

    Go Buckeyes! Win with the first team. Win with the second team. Win with the third team.

    Win baby, Win!

  30. onbucky96 says: Jul 22, 2013 8:10 PM

    Yes, swift and fair. Lets not kick out our star running back, that wouldn’t teach him a lesson. Typical Buckeye bullshit.

  31. dkhhuey says: Jul 22, 2013 8:28 PM

    @onbuck – how about we actually wait until the facts come out first, eh jackass!

  32. butlers91 says: Jul 22, 2013 8:39 PM

    Just wait, August 24th or so we will hear “Carlos did everything we expected of him during his suspension, and he is now re-instated to the football team.” – just in time to play ball.

  33. garyleee says: Jul 22, 2013 9:03 PM

    No Class! That’s Ohio alright

  34. mediocrebob says: Jul 22, 2013 10:39 PM

    Here’s an ND fan tough guy. Who killed someone? Aaron Hernandez (Urban’s boy). If you’re trying to refer to Kelly, you’ve just made yourself sound as dumb as all these posters that you just made fun of yourself. Moron.

    By the way, play someone. Your NC schedule and conference is a joke. You better hope the buckeyes go undefeated. I think Ohio U could run the table playing that slate.

  35. totallysirius says: Jul 22, 2013 11:28 PM

    Haters gotta hate, they suspended Hyde indefinitely and kicked some of the other players involved in legal problems off the team.

    What do you want Mayer and Smith to do, take them behind the stadium and shoot them?

  36. wadi79 says: Jul 22, 2013 11:38 PM

    Michigan will always suck! Go Bucks!!

  37. Romulus says: Jul 23, 2013 1:11 AM

    This is typical urban Meyer…everyone in the SEC abhorred his running of uf. He would suspend star players for a quarter…or ignore crimes and discipline entirely like aaron Hernandez. Welcome to the future of the urban reign in big ten.

  38. grumpyoleman says: Jul 23, 2013 9:07 AM

    This just in, he is being suspended for all defensive plays through the 2013 season.

  39. granadafan says: Jul 23, 2013 11:53 AM

    His real punishment will be that he actually has to ATTEND class instead of a paid tutor.

  40. anmd1 says: Jul 23, 2013 12:01 PM

    I don’t know all the information involved in these cases. Kids are kids and do stupid things. Head Coaches are accountable for the reputation of their school and team. Head coaches must have systems in place to disipline that deter. They must look at chareter of athlete when considering them in recruitment. This is not the SEC where 40 times trump literacy and criminal background history. Coach Meyer either doesnt care or is incompetent based off past history. OSU showed its arrogance in hiring him after similar problems with Tressell.

  41. randamonious says: Jul 23, 2013 4:22 PM

    Meyer is the magnet right now (12-0 will bring out the hate). Google ANY head coach in D1 and show me no sins. WVA and Nebraska just kicked kids off – where is the vitrol for those coaches.

    And please gator fans all this Meyer sucks talk but yet you proudly display those two BCS trophies. No shot in hell you get those w/out Meyer. I’d gladly give up a Spurrier (wait til next year dadgummit) for a trophy or two.

    Urban has been head coach for just over A year. He is coaching the players that were there when he took over you morans. Lets see what happens when the players come in that he recruits. Sounds like A bunch of angry Gator and Michigan fans to me. WOW.
