Ray-Ray Armstrong suspended after questionable tweet

With an NCAA investigation ongoing in the wake of the Nevin Shapiro scandal, the last thing Miami needed was any sort of controversy related to a player potentially receiving impermissible benefits.

While it’s yet to be determined if that’s the case with safety Ray-Ray Armstrong, it’s more than certain that Armstrong didn’t use common sense when tweeting the following on Sunday night:

“Just left Prime 112 wit @arinicolelife never seen a chicken this big.”

In plain English, Armstrong said he was having dinner with Ari Washington, the president of Double Coverage PR Group, which works with professional athletes. Below is a picture of the tweet.

What isn’t known is if Armstrong paid for his own meal. If he didn’t, that would be a violation of NCAA rules. Either way, Miami has suspended Armstrong for Saturday’s game against Florida State, the Miami Herald is reporting. Coach Al Golden later confirmed the suspension on his weekly radio show.

Armstrong was suspended or the first four games of the season for taking benefits from Shapiro. Additionally, he was forced to repay the $788 in benefits he took.

    Putting his comments into the best light possible, it was still a damn stupid thing to advertise, in light of the fact, he has already had to pay back over 700.00 in illegal benefits and will most likely lead to his school, getting in deep doo doo over the whole mess in the first place. I guess we just have to keep in mind, that a lot of these athletes aren’t in college for the academics, because they will never be accused of being the brightest light bulb on the tree. There are some actual student athletes out there who are really students, but obviously, he doesn’t fall into that category. It would be a funny story line, if it were not so tragic and showed the state of college athletics these days. It is all about money, and sadly, that is not going to change.

    Word around Miami is that she is his girlfriend.

    Physically talented… yet rich in foolishness.

    Is it an intelligence issue, or pure ego and self absorption? Maybe both.

    This guy is smart.
    Does he even attend the university? and if so, what kind of education is he getting?

    dumby, now you will watch your team get rolled from the sidelines and you cant do a thing about it. maybe you can check out the local restaurants in Tally to find a bigger chicken!

    Glad you got that in there….$788 equaled a six game suspension. What were some of the Boise State players tabs….in Boise Idaho?!?!??!

    This drama isn’t going to end, and if kids don’t want to be disciplined with this type of stuff and handle it seriously they are going to sit.

    Golden is great!

    these idiots don’t even pay for their own cell phones so why would we think they are smart enough not to be a bunch of dumba$$es.
