If he's guilty The Ohio State University will kick him off team and pull his scholarship!!! They don't play favorites here. I've seen it before with better players at that.

Not a big deal. He's a backup qb, and people get charged with OVI's everyday.

This was after the very public Ruggs drunk driving accident.
