Tracy Sprinkle Dismissed From Team

osuHelmetAs reported by Doug Lesmerises (and others), Tracy Sprinkle has been kicked off the team (pending further legal proceedings).

Urban Meyer dismissed Tracy Sprinkle from the Ohio State football team on Monday after the defensive lineman was arrested over the weekend and charged with cocaine possession after a bar brawl in Lorain.

Sprinkle, 19, entered not guilty pleas to charges of rioting, failure to disperse, possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia in a Monday morning arraignment in a Lorain courtroom.

Sprinkle was arrested on Saturday.

As the linked article points out, this is similar to the case during Urban’s first year at Ohio State, when legal troubles for Storm Klein resulted in his dismissal from the team, only to be welcomed back after things had cleared up. Klein’s missteps seem to be a little less severe than Sprinkles (possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia) but running afoul of the law is still running afoul of the law.
