A week of reckoning

It seems like it can’t get any worse for Bobby Williams and the Michigan State football program. In the past 10 days, Williams has seen players suspended, quit and get arrested – along with getting embarrassed by the rival Wolverines at the Big House on Saturday.

Suspended: Star quarterback Jeff Smoker saw his season blow up in smoke as he was suspended on Thursday, Oct. 24 for an unspecified violation of team rules. Smoker’s family released a statement last night stating that their son has asked for help dealing with his substance abuse problem. Defensive end Greg Taplin was also suspended last Tuesday.

Quit: Just five days after Smoker’s suspension, two redshirt sophomores – fullback Jason Bradley and linebacker James Cooper – quit the football team.

Dismissed: After being charged with a felony and two misdemeanors – for drunken driving, having an open alcohol container in his car and eluding a police officer – senior captain and starting tailback Dawan Moss was dismissed yesterday.
