Ok. St. defensive lineman suspended for Fiesta Bowl

A week after being one of two Oklahoma State players charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, Christian Littlehead has learned that his 2011 season will come to a premature end.

Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy confirmed Monday that the defensive lineman has been suspended for the Jan. 2 Fiesta Bowl matchup with Stanford.

Littlehead and OSU offensive linemen Jonathan Rush were charged last Monday for an incident that took place the week before.  Rush suffered a season-ending injury in September, so he will not be available for the bowl game regardless.

Littlehead has played in all 12 games this season for the Cowboys, starting a couple of those contests, and has been credited with two tackles for loss and one sack.

    You have to wonder sometimes, why these kids mental skills don’t grow along with their bodies and athletic skills. If they aspire to be pros. someday, they should realize that the NFL teams look at these incidences, or at least most of them do, and getting passed over or getting drafted down the list, could cost them a lot of money.

    After starting only a couple of games with a couple o tackles for a loss he didn’t have much of a chance of playing in the pros anyway. Too bad that a kid screws up his future though.
