Oen of Wisconsin's top offensive players may miss some playing time when the new college football season begins next week in Madison. Wide receiver Quintez Cephus has been suspended by the football program for a violation of the university's student-athlete discipline policy. “Cephus is suspended from competition and practice pending the availability of further information relating to this case,” a statement from Wisconsin read Monday afternoon. The exact nature of the violation being reviewed was not disclosed. This also does not confirm Cephus will be forced to miss any actual playing time, as it leaves the door open for possible reinstatement prior to the start of the new season for Wisconsin
According to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein, the Ohio State men's basketball team will be visiting the Windy City this December to get a jump on the Big Ten season, as they take on the Illinois Fighting Illini. Rothstein also reports that the Buckeyes will host Minnesota in December as well. The B1G experimented with having conference games before the new year last season, and the Buckeyes took advantage, picking up victories over Wisconsin and Michigan to give them a leg up heading into the traditional league slate. The full Big Ten schedule will be released in the coming days, but Rothstein has a pretty comprehensive list of the early season match-ups in his Twitter feed. After an exhibition game
OBERLIN, Ohio, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Loved for their elegance, Phalaenopsis orchids are the top selling potted flowering plant in the US. Ohio-based company Just Add Ice® recommends watering with ice cubes, sparking ongoing debate among orchid enthusiasts – a debate that's now over, as new research officially backs the safety and efficacy of watering with ice. To explore the impact of ice watering on orchid health, researchers from the Ohio State University and University of Georgia tested 48 orchids for six months, comparing water and ice irrigation to understand the effects of each method on orchid health and display life. The study was published in HortScience in September 2017.

The 2018 preseason edition of the AP Top 25 was released on Monday, and this is big news for a couple of reasons. The biggest of which is that the release of the preseason AP Top 25 means that the season is almost here. Seriously, there will be games played in anger on Saturday. This Saturday! Another reason they are important is that, even if they're based on estimations and predictions, preseason polls aren't truly meaningless. They set the expectation for teams all across the country, and they're the basis for how teams are judged. If you aren't ranked to start the season, it's going to be difficult to reach the College Football Playoff this season no matter how well you perform. This is because,
The first four years of the College Football Playoff haven't seen a lot of parity. Four schools — Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Oklahoma — have accounted for 11 of the 16 berths and all four championships. Those four once again are among the popular preseason picks to be playing in the Orange or Cotton bowls on Dec. 29, as are 2017 runner-up Georgia and 2016 playoff participant Washington. But there are some teams further down the odds sheet with the ingredients to mix things up. The Spartans have the most returning production in the nation, according to Bill Connelly's formula for SB Nation, and it starts with quarterback Brian Lewerke, who might rival Penn State's Trace McSorley as the conference's
Football players aren't the only ones at Ohio State going through practice to prepare for the upcoming season. Members of the Ohio State University Marching Band are also working through their paces for this season's gameday performances. During the band's first official practice of the season last week, senior drum major Konner Barr, a strategic communications major from Gahanna, led sousaphonist Cody Faist, a senior civil engineering major from Galloway, toward midfield to “dot the i” in Script Ohio. Faist will reprise his prominent role at the season-opening football game against Oregon State in Ohio Stadium on Sept. 1.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- For the third time in as many years, Ohio State could be starting a converted guard at center. During Saturday's open practice, Michael Jordan was working out as the first-team center. He had been the starter at left guard for the last two seasons. If indeed he starts there, he will follow Pat Elflein in 2016 and Billy Price in 2017 as guards who moved over to center. Acting head coach Ryan Day wrote in his note on Friday that Jordan is battling with fifth-year senior Brady Taylor for the starting center job. So if Jordan indeed starts at center for Ohio State when it hosts Oregon State on Sept. 1, how will that impact the offensive line? Watch Bill Landis, Doug Lesmerises and
The investigation of how football coach Urban Meyer handled domestic violence accusations against an assistant has drawn attention to his obligation to report violations of Ohio State 's sexual misconduct policy — a type of specificity becoming increasingly common in college athletic contracts, especially for highly paid coaches who are standard-bearers for their universities. Sports law experts say such provisions clarify expectations for those employees and can make it easier for schools to fire them without compensation if they fall short. They say that language started popping up more in recent years after the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State , with terms that go beyond the widespread and often vague morals clauses in contracts.
