| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bandit linebacker Michael Buchanan, who has missed two games because of a DUI charge, and offensive guard Hugh Thornton, who was arrested in connection with a campus bar fight, will not start, but will play against Ohio State today.
After meeting with athletic director Ron Guenther Friday, coach Ron Zook said through a spokesman that they face other internal team discipline for their legal issues. Both were starters until they had their off-the-field problems.
