Apparently the decision to suspend Torrance Gibson for the 2016 season was not made by Urban Meyer.

The Ohio State coach addressed the situation during his pre-Bowling Green press conference on Monday. Surprisingly, he said that he didn’t agree with Gibson’s suspension:

Gibson was technically suspended for a violation of “Ohio State’s student code of conduct,” which can mean just about anything. It isn’t clear what exactly led to┬áthe fall semester suspension, but it obviously wasn’t for something football-related.

There was talk that Gibson, a former dual-threat quarterback, could work his way into the receiver rotation as a redshirt freshman. It’s unclear what his future at Columbus holds.

Whatever the case, it’s rare to see a coach voice opposition to a major decision like that. Without speculating, it doesn’t sound like this situation is going away anytime soon.
