Michigan State defensive end Corey Freeman will sit out of Saturday's spring game after being suspended for a weapon-related arrest earlier this week.  Freeman was ticketed Monday for driving with a suspended license and not disclosing to an officer that he was carrying a concealed weapon, according to the Lansing State Journal. Freeman had a permit for the firearm, but the failure to inform the officer could affect the penalty for the suspended license charge.

Freeman saw action in 11 games last season, but only totaled six tackles. He likely would have been part of the defensive end rotation, but was not projected to start in 2011. The Michigan State coaching staff divided up the seniors into Green and White teams, then let them hold a "draft" for the underclassmen to fill out the rosters.

"It's fun for our players," said head coach Mark Dantonio, who served as the commissioner of the draft. "It gives everybody an opportunity to draft people, and they're doing a good job every year. I think they try and find out who can play as many positions as they can and who are the versatile players, and where's the big gap between certain players. I think you saw that there's some guys that the players feel like are pretty close. It creates excitement and enthusiasm, and that's half the football game, so I think when you bring that to the table a little bit, you get a more competitive atmosphere."

The Green-White game will be held in Spartan Stadium Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. CT.

MSU's DE suspended for spring game after arrest

Wow, another SEC school Mississippi State University (MSU) in the news with a player in trouble.  I tell you the SEC is just a bunch of cheaters and they use players that aren't really aren't college students.  No wonder they win the national championship every year.  Man I'm really getting tied of this.  Those Southern schools are really discusting.   WHAT?  Michigan State not Mississippi State.  NEVERMIND...
