    Early this morning word started to spread like wildfire that Ohio State junior running back got himself into a little trouble with the law after losing control of his car and causing an accident.

    Tipster tells me Elliott was cited for driving on a suspended license. Police would not confirm. Referred me to the report when ready.

    According to Zeke was alone, traveling to meet up with team for flight to Phoenix and incident happened at 1:30pm on State Route 315 and Lane Ave.

    Elliot was cited for not having operators license, faluire to control and driving under suspension.

    No court date has been set.

    The star running back has already said he isn’t coming back next season to play for the Scarlet and Gray choosing to join the NFL. One has to wonder like Adolphus Washington have we seen the last of Zekemode already? Patrick Murphy of has reported this:

    Ohio State's spokesperson confirms running back Ezekiel Elliott's citation will not impact his status for the Fiesta Bowl.

    I’m really not sure what to make of all of this. First I am concerned, there is a ton of time before the game on Friday. Usually when the SEC fan base protests they tend to get what they want being the best conference in American College Football.
    Second my concern is the rush to judgement over Elliot driving with a suspended license. I can say with certainty if the young man has a State of Ohio license that you do not know the very second that it is revoked. Personally having to deal with the fine institute that is the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, they mail out said paperwork and usually arrives about a week after. With that being said I don’t know if this could be the case so I am reserving judgement.

    Sure its easy for anyone to say the young man shouldn’t have been driving, or point out he did know and there were minor infractions so no harm no foul. I will say based on Ohio laws about driving under suspension, I was under the impression that if you were caught and there wasn’t a licensed driver with you, you would be placed under arrest and your vehicle would be impounded. We all know how much the City of Columbus enjoys impounding ones car.

    Urban Meyer is running another dirty program in Columbus they say. Sure just like Florida has suspended how many players now for their bowl game and um coach Meyer hasn’t coached there since when? Exactly every program has to endure issues so stop the hate.
