Tipton suspended two games

I have just received word that running back Zurlon Tipton has been suspended for the first two games of the 2010 season due to a violation of team rules.

Dan Enos released the following statement on the matter:

"Due to a violation of team rules, redshirt-freshman running back Zurlon Tipton has been suspended for the first two games of the 2010 football season. Student-athletes at Central Michigan University are held to the highest expectation of accountability and responsibility. We will continually evaluate Zurlon’s contributions to the CMU football program in the community, in the classroom and on the playing field. He will continue to practice with the team during the suspension."

For what it's worth, I understand the incident causing the suspension happened prior to training camp and didn't just develop. That would explain why he started the training camp deep on the depth chart. Not a great start for Tipton.

Must have been a very serious team violation to be suspended 1/5 of the season, not like testing positive for a little herb. Hope he learns and grows from it whatever the serious violation was.

Enos was recruiting Tip in HS at MSU and I hope he didn't feel "dissed" when he chose the Chippewas. Tipton is a great player. If Enos doesn't want him, I hope Zurlon gets a chance to play somewhere-too big of a talent to waste in a doghouse.
