Kirk Irwin/Getty Images(CHICAGO) —  Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer spoke at Big Ten media day on Wednesday about the off-the field issues surrounding his team.

“I’m disappointed,” Meyer said. “I think furious might have been the word that would best describe when I first got the phone call, because like I said for 12 months it’s been really, really good. I don’t want a disruption for this team. These guys work too hard to have a couple of knuckleheads make some decisions that reflect the entire program.”

On Monday, the Buckeyes suspended senior running back Carlos Hyde indefinitely, who police in Columbus consider a person of interest in the investigation of an assault against a woman at a bar, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Ohio State also barred starting cornerback Bradley Roby from attending Big Ten media days, suspended freshman tight end Marcus Baugh and sent freshman Tim Gardner home.
