Ohio State coach Urban Meyer described his reaction as furious to weekend legal incidents involving two starters and called the team's disciplinary policies as strict as any program in the country.

Speaking at the Big Ten Media Days on Wednesday in Chicago, Meyer dealt mostly with questions surrounding senior running back Carlos Hyde, who was suspended on Monday after an alleged altercation at a Columbus bar, and All-Big Ten cornerback Bradley Roby after he was arrested at a bar in Bloomington, Ind.

"I want to make sure our discipline is as hard or harder than anything out there," said Meyer, who is entering his second season at Ohio State after going undefeated in 2012.

In separate incidents earlier this summer, Meyer suspended freshman tight end Marcus Baugh and dismissed freshman Tim Gardner.

Hyde is considered a person of interest in an investigation of an assault against a woman, but a Yahoo! Sports report indicated that Hyde would not be charged.

Meyer suspended Hyde from all football activities and said he would review the case as facts become available from the case.

Roby faces preliminary charges in Monroe County, Ind., on battery resulting in bodily injury after he allegedly refused to leave a bar and was detained by bouncers.

---Arkansas-Pine Bluff linebacker Lydell Hartford Jr. died of a gunshot wound outside his home in Waggaman, La., on Tuesday.

Authorities indicated that the 20-year-old Hartford, a freshman walk-on, was shot in the neck by a 16-year-old friend who was playing with a gun that, according to the university, belonged to Hartford's mother.

The 16-year-old, whose identity was not released by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office because he is a juvenile, apparently fired a .38-caliber weapon that he thought was unloaded at the time while the two were sitting in a car in Hartford's driveway.

---Senior Purdue defensive lineman Brandon Taylor was projected as a starter on an inexperienced Boilermakers line this year.

During Wednesday's Big Ten media days, coach Darrell Hazell acknowledged that the defensive tackle was no longer on the team because of academics, CBSSports.com reported.

The Purdue media guide did not list Taylor the 2013 roster.

Last season, Taylor played in 10 games, making 11 tackles with 1.5 tackles for loss and a half sack.

    DUI Driver in Fatal Early Morning Accident Ordered to Detox Program in 1995

    The Santa Barbara woman arrested for DUI in the early morning accident that left three people dead early Monday morning has a lengthy court record out of Ventura County. Kimberly Kreis, 52, was ordered to serve 30 days in a detox program as far back as 1995.

    The car that Kreis was driving crashed into a disabled Mazda near the Castillo off-ramp of the southbound 101 freeway in Santa Barbara. Two 17 year old North Torrance High School students were killed in the accident- Jessica Leffew and Danielle Murillo. 20 year old Brian Lopez also died in the wreck. The driver of the Mazda, Eric August, is hospitalized in critical condition.

    A NewsChannel 3 investigation found records out of Ventrua County that appear to show that Greis has at least one prior conviction involving drugs and or alcohol, and in 1995 she was ordered to serve 30 days in a Cottage Hospital detox program.

    CHP investigators are still trying to piece together why the Mazda veered right into a guardrail, causing it to flip onto it's roof before coming to rest in the middle of the southbound freeway, which set into motion the deadly accident.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Guiterrez, said "A lot of things could have happened, He could have fallen asleep. We just don't know at this point."
