Nick Saban was apparently on a roll snark-wise Wednesday.
Said Saban, “LaMichael Fanning has been suspended from the team indefinitely for a violation of team rules or whatever, so he’s just not around.”
Fanning is a redshirt sophomore defensive end who has played in four games this season. The Anniston Star notes that Fanning is the 11th Tide player in the last eight months to be suspended.
Linebacker C.J. Moseley also notes that some of his teammates need to start learning some lessons from past punitive measures levied by the coach.
“Well, I guess guys still haven’t learned their lessons,” Mosley said. “We had a few guys have some disciplinary actions at the beginning of the season and during the offseason. When you mess up, you have to suspend guys. I hate it happened for him, but you have to learn from your mistakes.”
