Indiana’s leading WR, CB suspended for one game

When it comes to Indiana, most news is bad news, unfortunately.

That holds true with Thursday’s announcement from the school that leading receiver Kofi Hughes and cornerback Lawrence Barnett have been suspended for one game this season for violation of team rules. Which game Hughes and Barnett will miss hasn’t been clarified, although the season-opener against Indiana State seems like the logical choice.

Hughes (pictured) had 35 catches for 536 yards and three touchdowns last season. Barnett had 46 tackles in nine starts and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.

Reserve safety Forisse Hardin has also been suspended for one game as well for the same reasons.  Additionally, receiver Jay McCants has been booted from the team. McCants didn’t make much of a statistical impact last year with only six receptions, but IU’s receiving group has already taken a hit with the loss of Damarlo Belcher last year.

    Gosh, their leading receiver had less than 600 yards? If the NCAA was like the Premiere League, Indiana would be one of the teams that was always fighting to avoid a demotion.

    One game ! I’m sure that will solve all future concerns…….. Will they still have to go to classes ?
    TV Guide 101, and 201 should not be missed.

    At Auburn and Miami they would have been suspended from a practice.

    IU takes a stand, suspends players against Indiana State. Wow. I’m sure there’s a message in there somewhere.
