For weeks, you have seen Ryan Bain's name on the injured list.
Multiple sources have confirmed to me that it is not an injured foot that is keeping him out. Rather, he failed an illegal-substance test provided by the National Center for Drug Free Sport. Bain also lost the appeal.
This was nothing sinister on Bain's part. Apparently, it was just a careless act of consuming a product he bought over the counter at GNC, not knowing the substance was banned.
Speaking of discipline,
Igor Iveljic suffered this week after his post-game comment to
Joe Dunn about getting drunk to celebrate the Kent State win. Iveljic had to roll on his belly for a good 90 minutes courtesy of an angry
Mack Rhoades. You might be able to find his lunch inside a trash can somewhere on campus.
Some oddsmakers are
calling the Akron/Bowling Green game a tossup (or pick'em in gambling terms). I haven't really decided whether Akron will win. I think it will turn on whether
Andrew Johnson plays.
