URBAN MEYER IS CORRECT WITH PUNISHMENT OF CARLOS HYDE

COLUMBUS — Although Ohio State senior tailback Carlos Hyde will not be charged, according to police, with the assault of a female inside a Columbus-area nightclub, it hasn't permitted him from eluding the wrath of his disappointed head coach.

On Tuesday, Buckeyes head football coach Urban Meyer announced that he will suspend the star running back for at least the first three games of the 2013 season — home tilts against Buffalo, San Diego State and at California — and perhaps even longer.

BUCKEYES' BRAXTON MILLER TAKING ADVANTAGE OF LEADERSHIP CLASSES

When Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller arrived on campus in Columbus as a freshman in 2011, he was a shy kid who felt extremely uncomfortable under the major college football spotlight.

After being thrown into battle because of the sudden departure of then starting-quarterback Terrelle Pryor — as well as being mentored by a positional coach and coordinator who really had no clue how to nurture his abilities — Miller's head was spinning like an F-5 tornado.

URBAN MEYER SPEAKS ON AN ARRAY OF TOPICS AT BIG TEN MEDIA DAY

CHICAGO — Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer addressed reporters on Wednesday in Chicago during the first session of Big Ten Media Days, and the second-year mentor spoke about being eligible to play for a national title, his "humble" star quarterback, as well as replacing some key defensive talent.

But, of course, before he could speak on those football-related items, Meyer had to address some off-field issues which have arisen in Columbus over the past few days — most notably, the suspension of star tailback Carlos Hyde, who was named in a Columbus police report surrounding an assault of a woman at local night club over the weekend.

COLUMBUS — When Urban Meyer was hired following the 2011 college football season, the new Ohio State head football coach made one thing very clear to his team — hit a woman, and you will be sent packing. 

It was considered his first commandment.

On Monday, the university announced that star tailback Carlos Hyde may have committed the unforgivable sin, as he was named to a Columbus police report stating he allegedly assaulted a female at an area establishment.

BRAXTON MILLER COULD BE OHIO STATE'S GREATEST EVER IN 2013

By the end of the 2013 college football season, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller may turn out to be the greatest to ever take a snap under center in a Buckeye uniform.

Yep, I said the G-word ... "greatest."

He's already the most gifted Buckeye QB ever, possessing a howitzer for a right arm, the speed of an Olympic sprinter (4.32 40-yard dash), moves that would make Fred Astaire blush, and instincts which cannot be taught — only bestowed upon him by God.

BUCKEYES' POSSIBLE LETHAL BLOW TURNS OUT TO BE PAPER CUT

I don't think a school has ever recovered from NCAA sanctions as smoothly as Ohio State has — or so quickly.

Seriously, Michigan has suffered more for their decision to hire Rich Rodriguez than Ohio State has for accepting tats for tees.

I mean, two years ago at this time the Buckeyes were ravaged, losing their beloved head coach (Jim Tressel), two-time BCS bowl game MVP quarterback (Terrelle Pryor), as well as suffering huge suspensions for a core of their Sugar Bowl-winning roster. They went on to finish 6-7 in 2011.
