The college football season is right around the corner, and the next few days will be extremely important for the future of THE Ohio State Football program and Head Coach Urban Meyer. So, here’s a list of what Buckeye Nation should be watching for. RB Carlos Hyde awaits news of his suspension from team On Monday afternoon, senior leader and starting RB Carlos Hyde was suspended from all team activities pending the outcomes of a criminal and code of conduct investigation. According to a report from Yahoo! Sports, a surveillance camera clears Hyde’s name of his alleged assault. The incident reportedly occurred early Saturday morning at the classy establishment known as Sugar Bar 2, a night club in downtown Columbus. It’s reported that Hyde won’t face any charges, making it hard to believe that he will miss any game time. Then again, with Urban Meyer at the helm, you never know. The program has yet to make a decision on junior CB Bradley Roby, but Meyer did speak on the subject at B1G Ten Media Day on Wednesday. ”I think there will be discipline involved,” Meyer told NFL Draft 365. “I imagine there will be a suspension involved. He’ll be on a very short leash.” Roby was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge, and spent a night in a Bloomington, Indiana jail this weekend. Roby is the key to Ohio State’s defensive secondary, and any time he misses could be crucial to the Buckeyes run for another undefeated season in 2013. The last big thing to come from Scranton, PA was the hit NBC television series “The Office.” Scranton’s back in the national spotlight thanks to the 6-foot-6, 300 pound, 4-star junior college OT Jermaine Eluemunor. Eluemunor officially decommitted from UCLA on Wednesday, narrowing his final two schools down to Ohio State and Arkansas. The nations top rated JUCO player will reportedly make his decision later on today. Tonight, the Buckeyes will hold their second annual “Friday Night Lights” camp in The Horseshoe. Every commit from the Class of 2014 is slated to be in attendance, alongside other highly valued prospects. Five-star talents such as Georgia LB Raekwon McMillan, New York RB/S Curtis Samuel and Cleveland’s own CB Marshon Lattimore from Glenville High School are expected to be in attendance. For many players this is where Ohio State will seal the deal and we’re likely to see more commits to the Class of 2014 after the weekend! We are one month and five days from the Buckeye’s opener against Buffalo, and there’s plenty of news to come before Ohio State takes the field to make a run for the National Championship.
