Ohio State sidelined linebacker K Von Pope after being involved in an incident that sidelined the Buckeyes’ victory over O’Keefe.
According to the Cleveland plane-dealer, Pope was seen entering the locker room in the middle of the second quarter after an argument with coaches.
According to reports, Pope tried to run on the field for a defensive game, but was stopped by teammate Teradja Mitchell. The incident happened after the pope left the field.
The pope threw his gloves into the crowd and at one point the coaches and colleagues tried to remove his jersey before trying to cool him down. The pope later tweeted “good look to my colleagues” after the outbreak. He tweeted “f — Ohio State” before deleting.
On Sunday, Ohio State coach Ryan Day announced the removal of Pope from the team.
“Senior linebacker K’von Pope has been removed from the Ohio State football team. K-Von will continue to use programs that benefit our student-es thalitas, such as our Student-Support Thalitas Support Service Office, and we will continue to support him for his progress towards graduation.” He will remain on the scholarship until the end of this semester, “Day said.
The pope apologized on Twitter.
“Last night I let my emotions get the best of it. I apologize to my teammates, coach and Bucky Nation for that. I made a mistake and I know I need to do better and better. I’m going to take it. This time to reflect on my mental health.” And to work, ”the pope tweeted.
Vaughn, a senior who has been in Ohio State since his New Year, played two games last season and recorded two total tackles. The Acron Game was his third appearance of the season. He had three tackles coming up on Saturday.
Upon entering the season, Pope was expected to be a starter but was dropped into special teams at Operan and a limited number of snaps against Oregon and Tulsa, according to Eleven Warriors.
