Florida suspends two players for Saturday's game vs MI

Florida suspends two players for Saturday's game vs MI”

The first round came on August 13, when seven players-James Houston, Kadeem Telfort, Keivonnis Davis, Antonio Callaway, Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones, and Ventrell Miller-were suspended for reportedly misusing school-issued debit cards, a decision head coach Jim McElwain called "extremely disappointing".

Florida announced Wednesday the suspension of running back Jordan Scarlett and wide receiver Rick Wells "from all team activities", making it an even 10 expected to sit out of Saturday's season opener against MI at AT&T Stadium (3:30 p.m., ABC).

Freshman wide receiver James Robinson was then suspended after being cited for marijuana possession last week.

The incident in question involved some of the players using funds issued by the school for a specific objective to buy electronics. But Florida's sweeping suspensions of seven players also suggested that the program had found the full breadth of whatever misdeeds had been done, and a subsequent suspension for related activities sure seems to undercut that notion. Of the 10, Callaway, Scarlett and backup defensive end Keivonnis Davis were the only ones who would've seen appreciable time against MI.

United States conducts missile intercept test amid heightened tensions with North Korea
The military has conducted three tests in total, but during a test in June, the interceptor failed as a result of human error. It was the third time a North Korean missile overflew one of Japan's four main islands, with previous tests in 1998 and 2009.

The Gators might be in trouble against MI with another receiver out - Robinson would have replaced Callaway (already suspended) in the season opener. Callaway led the Gators with 54 catches for 721 yards in 2016 while Scarlett rushed for 889 yards and six scores.

According to the Associated Press' Mark Long, Scarlett and Wells are suspended for the same reasons as the prior seven suspensions, misuse of school-appropriated scholarship funds.

Of the suspended players, the losses of juniors Callaway and Scarlett are the most significant.

This is just all too much for people to take in, and the reactions on Twitter are just rolling in with the Florida suspensions now hitting double digits.

The winning and losing pitchers - Detroit's Alex Wilson (2-4) and New York's Dellin Betances (3-5) - were among those ejected. Cabrera barked at Romine and seconds later the two were on the ground with a mass of bodies around them.

The team's leading receiver has missed time before. He did not practice with the team that spring, but returned to classes during the summer and participated fully in fall practice.
