FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Ohio State sophomore defensive end Noah Spence has been suspended three games, starting with Friday's Discover Orange Bowl against Clemson, for violating an unspecified Big Ten rule.

The Buckeyes announced the suspension on Wednesday morning and said Spence and his parents did not agree with the ruling by the conference. Ohio State and the Spence family then spent time "exhausting the appeals process that was available to them with the Big Ten," the statement read.

Spence did not travel to Florida with the Buckeyes, and coach Urban Meyer had said Spence was dealing with a personal issue. Spence, an all-Big Ten selection, finished second in the conference with eight sacks and had 14.5 tackles for losses among his 52 total tackles.

Spence will be able to practice with the team in the spring, but he will not be eligible to play until Ohio State's third game of 2014 season, which comes Sept. 13 against Kent State. The Buckeyes' first two games are at Navy and against Virginia Tech at home.


Go Blue!!

It's a strange situation.  He appears to have been suspended for a B1G rule, and not a NCAA or osu rule.  What kind of rule would the B1G have that the others would not? 
 
 
Not that I really care because I want osu to get the sh1t kicked out of them.......

It was for a dietary supplement (supposedly), which is ridiculous.

Ohio State defensive end Noah Spence received a three-game suspension from the Big Ten after testing positive for the drug ecstasy, his father told WHTM-TV in Harrisburg, Pa.

Spence, a sophomore from Harrisburg, was suspended for last week's Discover Orange Bowl after testing positive for a small amount of ecstasy, his father told WHTM-TV. Greg Spence said Noah, a sophomore, didn't intend to take the drug as it had been put into a drink he had been given at a recent party.

Greg Spence said the Big Ten originally suspended Noah for a full season before reducing the ban to three games following an appeal. The family made a second appeal, which was denied, and plans to file a lawsuit against the conference, according to the report.


I’m sure someone just ‘slipped’ this into his drink without him knowing…haha

Not to mention that he was a minor consuming alcohol. So either way he was participating in illegal activities.

Not only that, I think O$U was helping Spence with the appeal!

they were helping him because the B1G was trying to suspend him for the entire 2014 season.  That seems a little extreme.  3 games is plenty for what I would assume is a first offense.

What's wrong with that...haha

P.S. they actually did suspend him for the season and the appeal reduced it to 3 games.

Something much bigger is being missed here.  Suing the conference brings a courtroom into play.  Bringing a courtroom into play then brings the following issues into play since, I believe, Spence, a '12 HS graduate, is under 21.
 
1) what else was being served at the party?
2) who else was at the party?
3) what was the address of the party?
4) who, if a rental property, owns the property?  Do those owners have any connections to the athletic department?
5) how does the OSU athletic department monitor it student-athletes?
 
These are questions that the OSU athletic department and Spence would NOT have to answer if it was just the NCAA asking the questions.  Now, you'll have the B1G lawyers and a judge in a courtroom asking these questions and they are going to be required to answered and the NCAA will be listening.
 
It's small little incidents like this that can bring down a sports program.  Remember, Michigan's basketball program was brought down by Maurice Taylor wrecking his car driving then-recruit Mateen Cleaves and other players back from an off-campus party.  Everything spiraled from that one "harmless" incident.

Only if the case is heard in Central Ohio.  There's a good chance, the case could be heard in Chicago (B1G HQ) or Indianapolis (NCAA HQ).

That's what I said.  They were helping him appeal the season long suspension, which they got reduced to 3 games.
 
 
 
and while I agree that losing Spence for the year would be cool from a "let's point and laugh at osu" standpoint, there's a precedence there I would not like to see be served to other kids that could find themselves in the same situation.  I think we can all agree that stuff like this is not limited to osu only.
