Nothing better illustrates how draconian and out-of-touch the NCAA is than its suspension of Ohio State’s star defensive end Chase Young. Young, a Heisman Trophy contender who leads the country in sacks, could be suspended for up to four games, which means he’d miss all three of Ohio State’s remaining regular season games after already missing OSU’s game against Maryland last weekend.
