It looks like YSU is not immune to stupid antics buy individuals than any other team including D-1A teams on having some "loose cannon" players screwing up on their free time. A couple of idiots screwing it up for everyone.

Pelini mum on team suspensions, gun charges

 

Published: 12/14/16 @ 12:01 - RELATED: YSU pass defense to be tested

 

By CHARLES GROVE cgrove@vindy.com

 

YOUNGSTOWN - Sources have told The Vindicator that Martin Ruiz, 21, a Youngstown State University senior running back, is one of five players suspended from playing Saturday in the FCS national semifinal game against Eastern Washington.

 

While sources said Ruiz is one of five players who failed NCAA substance testing, The Vindicator also obtained records from Stow Municipal Court that show Tallmadge police arrested Ruiz after a traffic stop for making an improper turn about 12:20 a.m. Dec. 6 three days after the Penguins victory over Jacksonville State.

 

A report from Tallmadge police said officers smelled marijuana inside the car after the traffic stop. Police made Ruiz and a passenger get out of the vehicle so they could search it.

 

Reports said suspected marijuana residue was found on the drivers seat and a loaded handgun was found in the glove compartment.

 

Ruiz told police the gun was not his, though he did know it was in the car, reports said. Reports said Ruiz also told police the gun did not belong to the passenger who was with him.

 

Ruiz was taken to the Summit County jail before appearing via video arraignment later Dec. 6 in Stow Municipal Court.

 

He was released on his recognizance after his arraignment, according to court records.

 

Summit County court records show Ruiz is charged with carrying a concealed weapon and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, both felonies.

 

His case has been bound over to a Summit County Common Pleas Court grand jury for further action.

 

Ruiz, from Tampa, Fla., had just one carry last week in the Penguins FCS playoff quarterfinal win over Wofford College and was only on the field for a handful of plays.

 

There has been no explanation from head coach Bo Pelini as to why Ruiz had only one carry.

 

Amid reports of the other suspensions, Pelini refused to discuss the situation Tuesday at his weekly news conference.

 

I protect our kids, Pelini said while admonishing some members of the media and explaining he wont discuss possible suspensions.

 

Pelini went on to say that holding players accountable is taken care of internally on teams he coaches.

 

I dont confirm, deny or talk about our discipline, our internal policies or what we do, Pelini said. I dont talk about it with the media. I havent for two years. Its always been my policy, and were not going to talk about it.

 

YSU had practice Tuesday indoors at the Watson and Tressel Training Site. A Vindicator reporter was asked to leave and was informed the practice was closed to the media. Frequently, only The Vindicator covers team practices.

Ruiz out of Tampa, Florida is a big piece of the YSU offense

 

2016 GP 14 YDS 1153 YDS/G 82.4 TD 12

 

Career Total GP 49 ATT 855 YARDS 4306 YDS/G 87.9 AVE 5.0 TD 41 LONG 94 <--- second all time YSU rusher

 

PERSONAL: Parents are Monica Hoch and Armandio Ruiz...has a brother...major is criminal justice...is the 2015-16 recipient of the East High Golden Bears Scholarship.

 

Will now go down as just a college screw up and tarnished what could have been a brilliant season for himself and YSU. What a shame.

Wow what an unbelievable semifinal game in Eastern Washington in unbearably cold conditions, YSU scored with their TE being held but managed to trap the ball on the defender's back for the winning TD!

 

A real instant frozen classic. Now on to the 1-AA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME January 7, 2017 in Frisco, Texas on ESPN2.

 

Bo knows football! Can't wait. ;)

Now this is sorta' how a college football season should look at the end.....

 

http://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/football/fcs

 

This is how it should not look at the end....

 

YOUNGSTOWN STATE with 4 players suspended before the semifinals.

 

JAMES MADISON with 7 players suspended before the finals.

 

Kids these days! What screw ups to ruin the end of a great season for everyone involved....but as a YSU fan and alum I'm glad the JM screw ups more than evened the field a bit, JM is a good team I I figured would beat YSU.

 

But Bo Pelini the abrasive character he can be knows football and went from a 5 win year 1 to the 1-AA CHAMPIONSHIP in year 2.

 

GO PENS!
