Ejected last week, Hall won't start for Ohio State vs. Michigan State

  • Updated: December 6, 2013 - 8:54 PM

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said senior offensive guard Marcus Hall won’t start in Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game against Michigan State.

Hall got ejected from last week’s Michigan game and then threw a tantrum before giving fans a double-bird salute on his way into the tunnel.

“Very, very disappointed in his actions,” Meyer said. “He paid the penalty for the fight, which is he missed three quarters in a rivalry game. It’s not Marcus. But just really disappointed in his actions after the fight.”

Practicing full-tilt

It’s unusual for teams to go full-contact in practice, especially at this stage of the season, but that’s what Michigan State did to get ready for Ohio State.

“I think you’re trying to put yourself in as many game-like situations — safe, not getting injured, so you can simulate as close to what you’re going to see on Saturday,” Spartans coach Mark Dantonio said. “I think we pushed the envelope there a little bit to try to do that.

“I think our players need to understand, ‘Hey, it’s not touch out there, it’s full-contact.’ We have to play. There’s no question in my mind that Braxton Miller is the most physical quarterback that we have played this year, in terms of … taking hits and running with power as a quarterback.”
