Fresno State suspends 3 players for bowl game

It looks like Fresno State will be short three players this weekend when it heads to Boise to take on Northern Illinois in the Humanitarian Bowl this Saturday.  The school announced on Wednesday that it had suspended three players, being kind enough to wait until after I'd written and published my Humanitarian Bowl preview.

Of the three suspensions, only linebacker Kyle Knox is a starter for the Bulldogs. The other two players are wide receiver Matt Lindsey and backup linebacker Daniel Salinas.

"Our student-athletes know and understand our rules and regulations," said Fresno State head coach Pat Hill said in a news release. "And those who don't abide by the rules will not be permitted to participate."

What those rules were, as is usually the case, were not released by the school.  

As for how these suspensions will impact Fresno, Knox's loss will likely be felt.  The junior has started all three seasons he's been at the school, and was second on the team in tackles this season with 74.  Considering that the Bulldogs have already been pretty soft against the run this season, not having Knox around against a read option team like Northern Illinois could cause even more problems.

One more reason why the WAC has about three metric tons more class than the SEC....this is what Auburn should have done.

I still have faith in Pat Hill's ability as a coach and he should find a way to work around this problem.  I'm not saying Fresno St. is going to win but they should at least keep it close.  Should be a pretty decent game though, I am looking forward to it.

It'll be interesting to see how this will affect Fresno's defense. I'll be right at the game rooting for NIU, and I'm scared of Pat Hill's abilities, so anything to help the confident Huskies have stronger a chance against a fairly impressive Fresno team....
