NCAA Football: Illinois at Ohio State Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer is not happy with a cameraman who injured quarterback J.T. Barrett before the game. Barrett was able to play against Michigan but ended up leaving in the third quarter, as the knee was apparently bothering him enough to exit the biggest rivalry in all of college football. Going forward, Meyer said Barrett will be fine.

Barrett said the he didn’t think the photographer did it on purpose, but the person in question tried to squeeze through where Barrett was and hit him in the knee, buckling it. Ouch.

Meyer isn’t the only person to say there are too many people on the sideline. Jim Harbaugh mentioned a couple weeks ago how tight the sidelines are and that it’s hard to even have a throwing lane for a quarterback to stay warm during the game.

This is a story worth keeping tabs on and we’ll have an update for you if and when more information comes out.
