Purdue is making wide receiver O.J. Ross sit down and think about what he’s done before he’s allowed to rejoin the others for the Pizza Bowl:
It’s a simple solution for Purdue receiver O.J. Ross to join his teammates in the program’s first bowl game since 2007.
“If he comes back and does all of his school work and takes care of business like he’s supposed to,” coach Danny Hope said following practice. “You have to take care of your school work first. It’s priority No. 1. We’re not budging on it, I don’t care who the player is. We’re not budging on it.”
The school issued a statement announcing that Ross has been suspended indefinitely for failure to adhere to team policy and rules.
“He better get it done pretty soon because the bowl game is coming up and the semester is ending,” Hope said. “He better get on the ball in a hurry or we’re going to miss him.”
Pretty soon is Dec. 27, when the Boilermakers face Western Michigan in Detroit.
