The Ohio State Buckeyes may be without DE Chase Young till the end of the regular season as the school expects a four-game suspension. Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig later said that report was incorrect.
Former Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James is speaking out after Ohio State defensive end Chase Young had to sit out of Saturday's game against Maryland.
Did Chase Young violate NCAA rules? That would mean he'd be out for PSU's trip to Ohio Stadium on November 23 and also games against Maryland, Rutgers, and MI. He is believed to have paid the loan back.
Sources told ESPN that money from Young's loan was used to help fly his girlfriend to attend the Rose Bowl. That would be considerably less money than Ware accepted from an agent in 2017.
James, an OH native and big Buckeyes fan, sounded off against the NCAA for its move against Young on Saturday in a series of tweets - joining the countless others who aren't happy with the NCAA.
That seems to be the biggest hurdle for Young to retain his eligibility for the remainder of the season. While the suspension likely ruins Young's chances at winning the Heisman, the Buckeyes don't need him to beat Rutgers on Saturday, which would cover his two-game suspension.
One week after being favored by the biggest opening point spread between Power 5 conference rivals this season, oddsmakers made Ohio State football's 44-point initial spread against Maryland look quaint. Larger even than Ohio State's 2013 matchup with FCS opponent Florida A&M, who were 49.5-point underdogs.
