Ohio State Dismisses One Player, Another Arrested

Just what Urban Meyer needed before the start of Big Ten Media Days.

Another embarrassing incident involving two of his football players.

Reports are out today that Meyer had to dismiss running back Carlos Hyde for allegedly being involved in assault against a female at a bar this past weekend.

Hyde scored 16 touchdowns last year and gained almost a 1,000 yards. Unfortunately, he didn't gain any common sense.

Hyde hasn't been arrested, but if he is being dismissed from the team, there is obviously something the Buckeyes know that the public doesn't.

There are also reports out of Columbus that cornerback Bradley Roby was arrested in Indiana over the weekend and is facing preliminary charges of battery resulting in bodily injury.

This is obviously not good news for The Ohio State University or Meyer, who has been under fire recently because of how he handled Aaron Hernandez while he was at Florida. Naturally, all eyes are on him and how he handles both these situations.

But just in case, maybe Big Ten officials should keep an ambulance on standby, just in case Meyer's heart palpitations return.
