It’s only natural that a player from Ohio State wouldn’t get a suspension!! It would show the rest of the conference that the powers that be thought an angelic player from either Ohio State, Michigan, or Michigan State did something wrong. Heavens!! They wouldn’t want that, would they? Idiots!!

I actually think what Ross did was worse. And from a man code standpoint a flagrant foul.
