Suspension Season in Full Swing: Now Mizzou Gets on Board
Share this article
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.
