One player suspended, another gone for Mississippi State

At this point in the offseason, if it’s not injuries, it’s suspensions or departures. For Mississippi State, this falls under the latter two.

Via the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, linebacker Chris Hughes (pictured, bottom) has been indefinitely suspended and wide receiver Ricco Sanders will not return to the team in 2013. No specific reason was given for either case.

Hughes had 31 tackles in 2012 while Sanders caught just one pass for three yards.

This is not Hughes’ first suspension. He was sidelined for one game in 2010 for a helmet-to-helmet hit and was also suspended for the start of the 2011 season.

    These two players will hopefully learn a lesson. I guess they did not value the opportunity of a scholarship to earn a degree. It’s possible Hughes may redeem himself if allowed back

    Last off season CFT had a list of players arrested and a countdown. Maybe this season it would be a dismissal, not as many arrests as last, but many more dismissals.

    This problem starts very young with those young men as children with God-given abilities which supercede the norm. They begin to be praised for those abilities and classwork is relegated to a much lower level. I have a public school teacher in my family and southernpatriots’ children are teachers. This is a real problem with our society and even more in certain cultures.
