COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It appears that Ohio State wide receiver Evan Spencer won't be speaking to reporters for quite a while.

Spencer said on Monday that Ohio State would "wipe the field" with Alabama and whoever is No. 2 in the Bowl Championship Series rankings.

Speaking on the Big Ten coaches' teleconference on Tuesday, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said it would be "a long, long time" before the junior would be permitted to talk to reporters again.

Meyer says he can't stand it when a potential opponent is slighted.

Spencer chuckled while assessing the teams ahead of the third-ranked Buckeyes in the BCS rankings but Twitter and other social media sites lit up with fans who were angry at his words.
