Tuesday, during his portion of the Big Ten teleconference, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he was "disappointed" in Spencer and that the player "won't talk to the media for a long, long time."

Meyer said the Buckeyes, third in this week's BCS standings, have a rule where players talk about the team and their teammates. "I don't like disrespecting other teams," Meyer said.

In a statement released by the school, Spencer said, "I did not mean to disrespect any team. ... I was having fun with the media answering their questions. I should have chosen my words more wisely."

Spencer is the Buckeyes' fourth-leading receiver, with 21 receptions and three touchdown catches.
