5. Zero Scruples
Speaking of Hyde, the running back is no stranger to controversy. During his Ohio State days, he received a three-game suspension for domestic violence (via ESPN). He avoided legal punishments but his school hit him with a short ban after bringing their program into disrepute. While this was a tough punishment, Meyer had no choice because of criticism he attracted for previous light penalties.
It’s also worth noting that the Buckeyes had a strong running corps at the time. Meyer was happy to bring his star back into the fold after the suspension and maintained a connection with him over the years. Clearly, as fans saw with the Chris Doyle fiasco, he doesn’t care about character flaws as long as they give him what he wants on the playing field.
