OU Football 2012 - Sooners Dealt Yet Another Blow Via A Suspension

New, 53 comments

To be perfectly honest, I'm about ready to just throw my hands up at this point. And the season hasn't even started yet.

Bob Stoops dropped some more bad news on Sooner fans Friday afternoon when he revealed that senior defensive tackle Stacy McGee had been suspended indefinitely due to a university policy. Reading between the lines, that could be a couple different things but my best guess is that it's grade related (though I could easily be wrong and will gladly admit if that proves to be the case).

While the news of the suspension is obviously disappointing (especially for a guy in his final season), that final tweet from OU beat writer Guerin Emig might be even more surprising. If true, the coaches are apparently considering David King as a temporary fill-in at defensive tackle?

Obviously for that to be the case, they must feel incredibly confident in not only R.J. Washington but Chuck Ndulue as well. If King is playing on the inside, it's a virtual lock that Ndulue would start next to Washington. It is also a major vote of confidence, at least in my humble opinion, towards true freshmen Charles Tapper and Michael Onuoha.

We've already established (unfortunately) this year that "suspended indefinitely" could mean really anything, which is why coaches love that punishment, so apparently we'll simply have to wait and see what the future holds for McGee.
