South Carolina’s Beamer suspends three freshmen from program Ohio State cancels home-and-home series with Washington Maryland hires Kevin Sumlin as co-offensive coordinator

COLOMBIA, SC – South Carolina Coach Shane Beamer said freshman Montek Rhames II, Anthony Rose and Cameron Upshaw were suspended from the football program.

The school’s statement on Friday gave no reason for the suspension. Online records showed that 18-year-old Rames was detained last night and held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center on charges of carrying a weapon on school property and obstruction of justice.

“Our student-athletes know what is expected of them,” Beamer said. “They know that both the university and the football program will hold them accountable for their actions and decisions.”

None of the three played for the Gamecocks.

Rose is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound Miami guard who signed up in January 2022 and has been wearing a red shirt this season. Rames and Upshaw were part of the latest South Carolina intake and enrolled last month.

Rhames is a 6-5, 235-pound quarterback from Sumter, and Upshaw is a 6-2, 193-pound quarterback from Perry, Florida.

COLUMBUS, Ohio. Ohio State said it has canceled a home football series with Washington that was scheduled to run in 2024 and 2025.

Ohio State initiated the move and will pay Washington, a Pac-12 member, a $500,000 fine by February 2025, athletic director. Jean Smith said. The cancellation would allow the Big Ten program to add an eighth non-conference home game in the 2024 and 25 seasons.

“I have a lot of respect for the University of Washington and director of athletics Jennifer Cohen and it was very difficult to do so,” Smith said.

Ohio’s 2024 schedule won’t be officially announced until October. This could include a conference game against new members of UCLA or USC when they move from the Pac-12 to the Big Ten this fall.

An expanded 12-team college football playoff also begins with the 2024 season.
