Ohio State Buckeyes LB K’Vaughan Pope escorted off field after blowup on sideline
Ohio State Buckeyes LB K’Vaughan Pope escorted off the field after a blowup on the sideline.
After a blowup on the sideline in the second quarter of Saturday’s game against Akron,
Ohio State linebacker K’Vaughan Pope was taken to the locker room.
Lettermen Row reports that Pope attempted to join the game in the second quarter but was turned down by Buckeyes linebacker Teradja Mitchell.
When Pope returned to the sideline,
he went toward the locker room before being escorted back to the sideline by an Ohio State employee.
Pope then reportedly tossed his gloves into the bleachers and tried to remove his jersey from the sideline, according to the allegation.
Before being led into the locker room by a worker,
he spoke with a couple of Ohio State coaches.
Ohio State coach Ryan Day refused to say if Pope was still on the team after the Buckeyes’ 59-7 win.
Day replied, “I just came off the field.” “As a result,
I’m going to have to find out where everything stands right now.”
While the game was still going on, Pope tweeted “f—- Ohio State” in a now-deleted tweet.
