J.T. Barrett loses academic aid at Ohio State after DUI arrest but can play football in a week

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer announced on Monday that Buckeyes starting quarterback J.T. Barrett would be stripped of money for summer classes and will be forced to sit out one week after a DUI arrest over the weekend.

The nature of the punishment led to a variety of criticism on social media.

Athletes, particularly those who help rake in money for football powers like Ohio State, already receive limited compensation for their efforts (a scholarship and cost-of-attendance stipends) and are forbidden from making any additional money based on their status as athletes.
