A college football program is reportedly considering suspending six players for their bowl game. According to a report from the Star Tribune, the Minnesota Gophers handed down punishment to six players after they violated teams rules.
The report states the six players in question are not allowed to practice in the month leading up to the team’s bowl game against Georgia Tech. The exact reason for the punishment has not been revealed, nor has the identity of the players.
At least six players are expected to be involved, but the report also suggests there might be as many as eight players suspended for the team’s bowl game.
From the report:
The alleged team rule violations reported from the sources do not involve assault or violence. Sources cited reasons for the disciplinary action, and the names of some players involved, but since those details have not been confirmed, the Star Tribune is not publishing that information.
It’s not a good look for P.J. Fleck and the Gophers program. This is the second time in three years Minnesota will discipline players ahead of the team’s bowl game.
