Michigan State suspends second-leading receiver for violation of team rules

Macgarrett Kings Jr.

Michigan State has suspended wide receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. for a violation of team rules according to head coach Mark Dantonio. King will miss the rest of the spring practice season for the defending Big Ten champions, but he is expected to return to the Spartans in the fall.

According to, Kings has not practiced all spring for the Spartan. This is just now coming out because Michigan State has a media policy that prohibit media covering the team from reporting what is witnessed in open sessions during practices. Because he has been inactive this spring, Dantonio says DeAnthony Arnett and R.J. Shelton have taken advantage of the extra snaps and each could be making a push to move up the depth chart at King’s expense. The two receivers combined for four catches and 13 yards in 2013.

Kings is the second-leading wide receiver returning to the Spartans in 2014. Last season he accounted for 42 catches for 509 yards and three touchdowns. He also has played a role on special teams for Michigan State, returning 20 punts for 206 yards in 2013.

Michigan State’s spring practices will conclude with a spring game on April 26.

    Do you even know what he was suspended for?

    Wow, suspended for almost an entire week of practice! If that wasn’t enough, there are rumors that Mark Dantonio also gave him the frowning of a lifetime when he made the announcement.

    Reports out of East Lansing say that “Couch Burning” was the cause. Couch burning is a long standing tradition with little brother in their life long inferiority complex with mighty Michigan.

    Wow, tdub821, MSU is really in your head, aren’t they. You’re obsessed with taking a shot when you can. Too bad you’re not in control of your own emotions.

    The couch burning thing ia pretty stupid, but I guess couch burning is a better bad habit than sexual assault and coverup, which U-M is very good at.

    Wow, sbkpllc…I guess you’re not aware of the little brother cover up regarding your overrated basketball team and their sexual assault case….hmmm….I didn’t think so….now go to your room and google…”Madness Surrounding Michigan State Basketball”….I’m sure IKEA is having a sale on couches….if you’re looking for a sale on excuses check with Izzo, he’s full and overstocked with them.

    tdub821 – you realize the district attorney that decided not to press charges in the case you are referring to was a graduate from Michigan law school? So a UofM graduate covered up MSU crimes…hmmm – seems legit…or there wasn’t enough evidence….

    Also you realize that students at UofM have also started burning couches? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…..

    They burned the couch because of stains that might lead to a sex scandal.

    How typical of a Wal-mart Michigan Wolverine to post baseless disparaging comments about Michigan State University. Their obsession with the Spartans is comical.

    As for couch-burning, NOBODY does that better than U. of Michigan fans:

    Maybe he thinks MSU should learn from their sisters in Ann Arbor like this:

    Or this:

    Or this:

    It’s been going on for years in Ann Arbor — maybe even this:

    Here’s fun tivia fact:

    # of U-M football players arrested during the past two seasons: 9.

    (this does not even include Taylor Lewan, who was indicted last month – or the rapist Brendan Gibbons, who left campus after he was expelled FOUR YEARS after his crime)

    # of MSU football players arrested during the past two seasons: 0.

    Take your time on which program is the national role models for off-the-field conduct, and which program is among the very worst in D1 football for criminal activity— we will wait.

    Being a “Michigan Man” apparently means to wear handcuffs.
