Starter Suspended for Game 1
Starting RB, Michael Smith, is suspended for game one against Wester Illinois today. His suspension is a result of a "textbook" violation. According to sources, this suspension is for one game only - making him available for the Louisiana Monroe game next Saturday. Today, look for Freshmen to get serious playing time - that includes De'Anthony Curtis and Dennis Johnson. Senior backup Brandon Barnett is the likely starter for today's game.
