Contrary to recent media reports, Ohio State football student-athletes Corey Brown, Jordan Hall and Travis Howard are not cleared to compete in the game on Saturday with Toledo.

The nature and scope of their violations merit a minimum two-game suspension.

In addition, the facts submitted by the university have raised further questions that need to be answered before the reinstatement process is complete.

The Buckeyes have gone 32,844 days since their last loss to a backyard opponent.

Suspensions, NCAA investigations, a vacated season, a deposed coach and a departed quarterback have stung Ohio State. But by virtue of Saturday’s 42-0 beatdown of Akron, and the overwhelming popularity of the scarlet and gray, the Buckeyes continue to maintain their in-state dominance within Ohio’s borders.

The Buckeyes are 42-0-1 against their closest neighbors since their last loss, a 7-6 setback to Oberlin during native son Warren Harding’s administration back in 1921.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.


  1. Apparently Toledo’s top three LBers are also out for the OSU game…

  2. Well this is just grand. Sharrif Floyd gets 2700 bucks and sits out two games. These guys get 200 bucks, also sit out two games. Seems fair.
