Second-leading receiver one of two Clemson players suspended

As Clemson tunes up for what should be an epic showdown with Florida State two Saturdays from now, the Tigers will be at less than 100-percent offensively for their tuneup game this weekend.

The school announced via a press release Friday evening that wide receiver Germone Hopper (pictured) and defensive back Ronald Geohaghan have been suspended for the Boston College game tomorrow. The duo were suspended for the usual “violation of unspecified team rules,” although head coach Dabo Swinney did throw in a “poor behavior” in his statement on the punitive measures.

The release did not specify whether the suspensions were for just the BC game or if they would bleed into the Oct. 19 game against the Seminoles.

The redshirt freshman Hopper is currently second on the team in receptions with 16 and is fifth in receiving yards with 117. His two touchdown receptions are tied for third.

Geohaghan, also a redshirt freshman, has played in three of Clemson’s five games this season.

    What an idiot reply – wouldn’t expect any better…

    Floridacock just means that suspending players for breaking rules is a Clemson thing. At the university of South Carolina, this would make him the #1 receiver.

    The second leading receiver on the team only has 15 receptions for 119 yards??

    Yep. Peake was #2 (since Bryant can’t catch) but tore his ACL. Hopper was targeted a lot in the 2nd half of blowouts with Syracuse, SC State, and Wake. Pretty easy to figure out when you look at how deep the Tigers are! WE TOO DEEP!!

    To all you schmucks that are “laughing your asses off” yes is the 2nd leading receiver with 119yds & that is bc unlike your “team” clemson has 11 yes 11 PLAYERS WITH RECEIVING TD’S! now try that with your overrated ,2-3 impact players, team. There is no other team with that kind of offense, a team that EVERYBODY on the O can catch & run! So put that in your pipe & smoke it you schmucks!

    & further more, how many “slaps on the wrist” did garcia get b4 they decided that it was enough? I counted 4 slaps & then the last was a spankin. So yeah dabo suspending hopper is very much a normal thing whether or not it was the fsu, gamecock, or bc game, dabo is the most humble coach in college football & WILL sacrifice a loss to punish a player (as much as it would piss me & everyother fan off tremendously)he would for sure do it because it would be the right thing to do. Hes definitely no spurrier or holtz who will sweep stuff under the rug to ensure a win.

    clemson120 there are several offenses where everyone can catch and run. You’ll be seeing Nole receivers running right thru your defense next Saturday.

    That headline is pretty misleading. No one would consider him the second leading receiver. He is tied with a couple others with 15 receptions, but he is only fifth or sixth in yardage. And, why don’t you learn to spell? You think it is cute to misspell Clemson? It just shows your ignorance.

    Yes, labeling someone who is second on the team in catches as its “second-leading receiver” is “pretty misleading.”
