Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer announced during a press conference Friday that starting redshirt-senior right guard Marcus Hall will not start in the Big Ten Championship Game against Michigan State Saturday.

“He won’t start the game,” Meyer said of Hall. “Other than that, we’ll see what happens. But that’s where it’s at.”

Meyer gave no indication to how long Hall will held out against the Spartans.

Hall, along with freshman running back Dontre Wilson, were ejected after their involvement in an on-field fight during the second quarter of OSU’s 42-41 victory against Michigan Saturday.

Although neither player faced further discipline from the Big Ten, the conference issued a public reprimand Monday for Hall’s actions after he flipped off the Michigan Stadium crowd upon exiting the field. The OSU coaching staff was also reprimanded by the conference for “failing in its duty to effectively manage the process of escorting an ejected student-athlete from the playing field to the locker room.”

Meyer said during a Sunday teleconference that he dealt with Hall and Wilson’s punishments for their actions internally.

The No. 2 Buckeyes (12-0, 8-0) and No. 10 Spartans (11-1, 8-0) are set to face off for conference supremacy Saturday night at 8:17 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    Luv the wording Urban…won’t “start” but not won’t PLAY!!!! Like I told my baby Buckeye if my child behaved that way on national TV….well Desmond Howard’s (ESPNs College GameDay) dad and I must be kin…nuf said???? hahahaha Hall apologized and I’m sure got an ear full from his parents so time to move on!!! Now Kirk Herbstreit how did you know the game today has the same intensity as MY Ravens/Steelers matchup??? The reason I think da Buckeyes will win is because Tattogate took so much from this TEAM. They know the chase just got REAL…..lets play ball! hahaha Corso’s headgear moments crack me up!!!
