Profanity-laced video could lengthen Denzel Nkemdiche’s suspension

Denzel Nkemdiche could wind up being suspended for more than Ole Miss’ season-opener against Boise State after a video surfaced on YouTube of the linebacker directing a profanity-laced tirade toward a group of people believed to be rival fans.

The video, according to, has since been deleted from YouTube. But coach Hugh Freeze saw it, and said he’d consider lengthening Nkemdiche’s suspension stemming from an arrest earlier this year.

“I’m not happy with him, not proud of it, hope he’s not. It’s definitely not what we want to be about and the way you want to handle (a situation) regardless of what initiated it or caused it,” Freeze said, via “There’s a way to handle adversity and controversy, and it’s certainly not that, and that’s been made clear to him.”

Nkemdiche, a two-time All-SEC linebacker, made 35 tackles in 10 games during an injury-riddled 2013 season.

    That’s exactly the way to handle it. I wish he’d punch those fans in the mouth.

    Like the old saying “If you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen”. Sounds like a bomb ready to go off at anytime. He needs to grow up,doubt he ever will.

    My real thought: ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzZZZZzzzzzzz oh gosh a teen or 20something cursed up a storm …. oh the next thing you know sailors will be cursing!

    My witty comeback: This from a school who’s head coach upon his first meeting with his new team ripped his shirt off and challenged any of them that would to a fight in a profane tirade.
