Texas A&M announces four more suspensions for Rice, Sam Houston State

Kevin Sumlin, Player Suspensions, Texas A&M Aggies, Violations Of Team Rules

Johnny Manziel isn’t the only Aggie who will miss some playing time early this season. Texas A&M, which faces Rice and Sam Houston State to open the year, has suspended four players for two games over a violation of team rules, according to the university.

All four players will be eligible to play against Alabama on Sept. 14. Jenkins (not to be confused with the lead singer of Third Eye Blind) had 79 tackles a year ago at linebacker. Stansbury and Harris are also defensive contributors, while Pope is a redshirt freshman wide receiver. I can’t imagine this disciplinary action will have a great impact on the team’s chances against Rice or Sam Houston State, but coupled with the Kirby Ennis and Floyd Raven suspensions and the Manziel and Deshazor Everett half-game suspensions, A&M can’t exactly afford to suffer any in-game injuries on Saturday.

Is it just me or does it seem self-serving to suspend players against very weak opponents?

@Winger7 yeah but at least Sumlin isn't getting on his soapbox while doing it.
