and this one's a Buckeye-

Ohio State running back and former GlenOak All-Ohioan Bri'onte Dunn was cited by the Alliance Police Department over the weekend for drug paraphernalia possession and a seat belt violation, two sources with knowledge of the incident told The Repository.

Both charges are misdemeanors and Dunn was not arrested or booked into the jail, the source said.

Wasn't this guy rumored to be a problem child/knucklehead while being recruited?

And is there a requirement for NCAA football players to smoke weed? :nono:

You would think these "boys" would wise up- but they'll just throw it all away...:whistle:

Here is what Meyer has done so far-so what could happen to Dunn?:nono:

-Early January: Defensive back DerJuan Gambrell violated team rules (the infraction was never publicly specified) and was kicked off the team.
-January 7: Defensive back Dominic Clarke was picked up for driving while intoxicated. He was dismissed from the team a little over a week later.
- June 2: Tight end Jake Stoneburner and offensive lineman Jack Mewhort were arrested and charged for "obstructing official business" for running from Shawnee Hills police officers after they happened upon the pair urinating between buildings near the Muirfield Village golf course. Stoneburner and Mewhort were later suspended and lost their summer scholarships.
-July 5: Linebacker Storm Klein was charged with assault and domestic violence after a scuffle with his ex-girlfriend. Two days later, he was dismissed from the team.

Let me preface this by stating that I am not flaming here. But, it was easy to show 3 of those guys the door when they were not your players and you are trying to shed weight for more recruits that you prefer. I've also heard there was a seperate charge filed before this one against Dunn for a reckless op or something similar? Dunn was being looked at to possibly be the #1 back this fall. Too much downtime for these guys I guess

I agree with that Red- it does make it easier;)

Here's another RB that had loads of potential and blew it-what's with RB's this summer and trouble?

> Ex-Auburn star booted from new team

Updated Jul 30, 2012 3:48 AM ET

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP)

Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer has been dismissed from the Arkansas State squad for violating team rules.

Arkansas State coach Gus Malzahn announced the decision Saturday, saying: ''I am truly disappointed that it didn't work out here at ASU for Mike. I wish Mike nothing but the best in the future.''

The offensive MVP as a freshman in Auburn's victory over Oregon in the 2011 National Championship Game, wasn't eligible to play this season for the Red Wolves after the NCAA denied his request to play immediately.

Dyer transferred to Arkansas State in January after he was suspended indefinitely by Auburn coach Gene Chizik for violating unspecified team rules before the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

He was the first Tigers tailback to rush for more than 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons, including a 1,093-yard performance as a freshman that broke Bo Jackson's school record of 892 yards set in 1982. Dyer rushed for 1,242 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Malzahn, who was Dyer's offensive coordinator at Auburn, helped recruit Dyer to the Tigers before being hired by the Red Wolves after last season.

Stupid pills are readily available this summer for RB's I see:whistle:



Iowa suspends running back Johnson


IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP)
Iowa running back De'Andre Johnson has been suspended after two run-ins with police in the past week.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz issued a statement Sunday saying he had suspended Johnson from all team activities after learning about the sophomore's latest encounter with police.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports that Johnson was ticketed for speeding and eluding arrest on Saturday. It says Johnson drove his motorcycle 60 mph in a 25 mph zone and didn't immediately pull over.

University Heights police didn't immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press.

Two days earlier, Johnson was ticketed by Iowa City police for maintaining a disorderly house after neighbors complained of a loud party at his home.

Ferentz did not say how long Johnson's suspension might last.

First Big 10 game of the season?

Maintaining a disorderly house?

The guy can't catch a break.

That 60 in a 25 and eluding is pretty serious stuff.

Stupidity. All there is to it.

You have a free ride to a world-class university and to play for a world-class football team. These kids don't care, plain and simple.

Boys....56?

Im pickin up what youre puttin down. Its a trend amongst these boys. The punishments have to be harder, bottom line.

These colleges are putting sports first, and not stressing responsibility and academics. Its not responsible on these colleges part. The students are there for personal growth and academic development, and these colleges, especially coaches being the players number one influence, should be pushing those values on the students, and enforcing extremely harsh penalties.

They are not doing the players or their future any good by taking transgressions lightly.

the coaches do anythang to win...winning means they keep their job and making a ton of money...higher ups look the other way because theyre cashing in and making money for the school too...thats what happened at penn state and is happening at most colleges today...the bigger colleges really rake in a lot of money,which the school and conference gets a share and then there is big bonuses for the higher ups including head coaches based on how far they go into post season play...its a dog eat dog world as we seen at ohio state,shakey characters involved thats not even on ohio state payroll...:biggrin:...:biggrin:geeze i wouldnt be surprised the mafia isnt keying in on it...:biggrin:to get the bonuses you gotta stay up near the top...this creates a lot of these problems...:biggrin:

:yikes:

These kids "using", do it for recreation...the drivers use it to "enhance performance' to win-$$$$.

Unless there "enhancing performance" for other reasons for after the race:biggrin::biggrin:

Seriously, these "kids" have a great opportunity to do something with their life and just don't think about the "what ifs" if they go off the straight and narrow. But if we think back to when we were 17-18-19-20.....I can see why some of this happens.

Bri'onte Dunn will not face drug charges

By Todd Porter
CantonRep.com staff writer
Posted Jul 31, 2012 @ 11:09 AM

After a complete review of the police reports, supplemental narratives from officers, witness statements and about a 30-minute police cruiser video, Alliance City Law Director Andrew Zumbar has authorized the filing of disorderly conduct and a seat belt violation charges against Ohio State freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn and his passenger. He will not face drug charges.

Dunn was stopped late Saturday night in Alliance driving a 2001 Dodge Stratus that is registered to his mother, Donna Hatcher. Police found a minute amount of marijuana in the car as well as a marijuana pipe.

"Based upon the content of all the evidence reviewed, I made the decision to authorize the minor misdemeanor disorderly conduct instead of the drug possession because throughout the entire (traffic) stop Bri'onte Dunn is consistent and denies the paraphernalia and the small amount marijuana are his," Zumbar said. "The paraphernalia was not found on him."

McKensey Cross, who was the passenger with Dunn, will receive the same charges as Dunn. Cross is a freshman soccer player at Urbana University. They are both GlenOak High School graduates. Dunn will also be charged for a tail light violation.

Zumbar reviewed the reports and video with Alliance Police Chief Scott Griffith. The charges will be filed Wednesday when the investigating officer returns to Alliance.

"His statement is consistent that he denies possession of the objects," Zumbar said. "He was polite during the entire stop. Otherwise his demeanor was unremarkable in terms of his conduct."

The law director has the final determination on what charges to file. Dunn's mother, Donna, arrived at the scene of the traffic stop, Zumbar said, and said the minute amount of marijuana was present in the vehicle previous to Dunn using it.

Bull. If he doesnt get the charge, noone with anything in the car theyre driving should. Apply it equally or not at all.

This is a common practice anywhere, especially for younger people. Usually if they go to court with any type of legal representation they get the paraphanelia charge dropped to disorderly conduct. Not a big deal
