Why Marcel Why?

Ohio State tight end Marcel Frost was suspended for the upcoming season for violating team rules.

Athletic department officials declined to comment on the nature of the violation. Frost will remain on scholarship and will be eligible to rejoin the team next season, school spokesman Dan Wallenberg said Wednesday.

Frost played nine games and started the final five last season after Ryan Hamby suffered a knee injury, catching seven passes for 70 yards.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Frost was expected to start this season for the Buckeyes, the preseason No. 1 in the coaches’ poll, but now sophomore Rory Nicol likely will get the nod.

Information from The Associated Press and SportsTicker was used in this report.


  1. I think this is a pretty big loss. Frost showed he had solid hands, (the catch against michigan was sick even though it was not for a lot of yardage), and is was a fairly big body. Regardless I am itchin to get this season started and cant wait for that game to redeem ourselves against Texas

    Jimmy – I am a little concerned about the lost of Frost, but I think either Rory Nicol or Stan White Jr. can step in without missing too much of a beat. I think we’ll be okay.

    On the other hand, after OSU declared itself “clean,” I am a little bit worried about the players not being on the up-and-up. I don’t know what Marcel did (I have my assumptions) but I hope the majority of the players are keeping their nose clean.
