Originally written July 30, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
In the developing saga of the incident involving Ohio State senior running back Carlos Hyde and a female at downtown Columbus club Sugar Bar 2, there is now a clear punishment delivered. Head Coach Urban Meyer, after suspending Hyde from the team a little over a week ago, has now suspended him from at least the team’s first three games in the 2013 upcoming season, he announced through the university this evening. More on this was reported by Tim May and Allison Manning at The Columbus Dispatch. “Meyer announced tonight that Hyde, already on suspension as the investigation played out, will miss at least the first three games of the coming season as penalty for breaking one of Meyer’s primary codes of conduct, which is to show respect to females.” Last season, Hyde emerged as the team’s best running back, running for 970 yards on 5.2 yards per carry and a whopping 16 touchdowns. “Carlos Hyde will be suspended for at least the first three games of the 2013 season for conduct not representative of this football program or this university,” Meyer said in a statement released by the school. “He will be required to fulfill additional obligations before he is allowed to play in a game.” Those three games will be vs. Buffalo on August 31st, vs. San Diego State on September 7th, and at California on September 14th.
