Ohio State WR Torrance Gibson suspended for 2016 season
Ohio State suspended wide receiver Torrance Gibson for the season, but the decision to ban the redshirt freshman didn’t come from coach Urban Meyer or the athletic department.Meyer made that distinction known on Monday, via ESPN.com:
“It was not from the athletic department or football,” Meyer said during his weekly news conference Monday. “I disagree with it.”
Meyer didn’t provide any details on what transpired or what, if anything, could be done about it given his opposition to the discipline. Ohio State has not commented on the nature of the violation.
Gibson was suspended for a violation of Ohio State’s student code of conduct. He was previously suspended for a game during the 2015 season, a year in which he redshirted.
As talented as Torrance Gibson is, at least on paper, the Buckeyes didn’t absolutely need him and weren’t absolutely counting on him.
