Suspension Season in Full Swing: Now Mizzou Gets on Board

What's the college experience without the traditional trappings of spring break?

The fun. The frivolity. The carefree atmosphere. The sex, drugs, and rock-&-roll. The arrests.

And for those on football scholarships, the suspensions.

This, too, has become a time-honored tradition. It's so popular these days, that it's not even confined to spring break anymore. Let us count the ways:

  • Georgia puts four in limbo for trying to cash the same checks twice.
  • Clemson opens the 2014 campaign against the Bulldogs, and they've kept pace by shelving four players for the ever-popular violation of team rules schtick.
  • Penn State's Anthony Alosi took Fight On, State too literally and wound up getting nailed with assault charges.
  • Texas A&M's Ricky Seals-Jones clearly out-Manzieled Johnny Football when he was, according to the police report, "arrested around 2:30 a.m. after an altercation with someone who bumped into him as he was being carried away by his friends from a College Station establishment."
  • Washington's only QB with game experience, Cyler Miles, and frosh wideout Demore'ea Stringfellow were arrested for beating up anyone wearing a Seahawks jersey after the Super Bowl. In Seattle.

And now the parade continues with Missouri's star wideout Dorial Green-Beckham being suspended indefinitely. Showing a disappointing lack of creativity, the Tigers simply said Green-Beckman was docked for a violation of team rules.

A few months ago, he got lifted on drug possession charges, so maybe that's a hint.

Whatever the issue, Mizzou is going to miss him if he doesn't come back by the fall. Last season, Green-Beckham average 15 yards per catch and 12 touchdowns.
