Ohio State Depth Chart After Jake Stoneburner, Jack Mewhort Suspensions

I can't imagine living in a world in which Urban Meyer's players miss actual game action due to inappropriate urination, but let's just go ahead and let loose a scenario in which tight end Jake Stoneburner and tackle Jack Mewhort miss the opener against Miami (Ohio) due to their business-obstructin' arrests.

Both are starters, for one thing.

Stoneburner has finished in the team's top three in receptions two years in a row, though that doesn't really mean a whole lot going forward, since nobody was really zipping up all that many passes around Columbus. He is a touchdown magnet, however, with half of his 14 catches last year going for scores, and is expected to burst forth in Meyer's offense, which produced current NFL star Aaron Hernandez. Stoneburner's backed by Jeff Heuerman, who had one catch as a freshman, and Land-Grant Holy Land calls him "a potential future star in the making."

Mewhort is relieved by redshirt sophomore Darryl Baldwin, a newly converted defensive lineman.

So! It's highly unlikely that the events from this weekend will trickle onto the field, but if they do, there's how it will all shake out.

Jake Stoneburner, Jack Mewhort Arrested For Evading Police

Turns out, Ohio State TE Jake Stoneburner wasn't alone when he was arrested early Saturday morning for "obstructing official business." In addition to Stoneburner, police also arrested offensive lineman Jack Mewhort, as well as a third person who isn't affiliated with the Buckeyes' football team.

So what caused the arrest? Details are beginning to emerge.

Police told 10TV News that two officers saw the three men who they believed were urinating between buildings. The officers attempted to talk with them but they ran away.

Two of them were captured while they were crouched in between vehicles in a parking area used for the nearby Memorial Tournament, police said. The third person was found hiding in nearby woods after officers threatened to use a police dog.

That doesn't sound good, and our Ohio State blog, Land-Grant Holy Land, is none too pleased with what might come next.
