News has come out that before the Ohio State-Michigan game on Saturday, Buckeyes QB J.T. Barrett was bumped into by a photographer.
Video has since made its way around the internet showing Ohio State’s signal caller limping away from the incident.
Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer wasn’t at all happy with what took place, but the latest update on the Barrett-photographer saga is that the Buckeyes aren’t conducting a “full-blown investigation” to find the photographer.
According to an ESPN article, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said:
“We’re not doing a full-blown investigation to find the photographer. We’re looking at what things led up to that. The conference office asked us for our account of what happened. The conference office is gathering data. That’s the extent of it. The outcome of it will ultimately be improved operations. There’s no attempt to try and find a person. The attempt is to find out what happened, what corrective measures we need to put in place. Urban has decided, which I agree with, that we have too many inside the box.”
Toward the end of the article, it says that Smith said the incident will turn into a larger league-wide review, which Big Ten athletic directors hope to determine new policies at during their next meeting in February.
