Unlike the other coaches at Big Ten media days, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer fielded more off-filed questions than on-field ones when he took the podium on Wednesday.
For the most part Meyer played it safe and terse, choosing his words carefully and not saying anything of genuine import. But one quote stuck out as more noteworthy than the rest: the one about Bradley Roby being his biggest disappointment.
Per CBS Sports’ Jeremy Fowler:

This, of course, comes on the heels of running back Carlos Hyde’s spate of legal problems, stemming from the investigation of an assault against a woman. Reports first surfaced that Hyde had been dismissed from the team; then they changed to an indefinite suspension; and now, in the light of potentially exonerating video surveillance (via Yahoo!), Hyde’s future is beginning to look more rosy.
