Reserve MU linebacker Booker suspended after arrest
Marquis Booker, a reserve Missouri linebacker, has been suspended indefinitely by coach Gary Pinkel after his arrest on a felony gun charge.

The universities need to start cleaning up their act and get rid of these thugs. That is all that you read about in the off season --- players arrested. Maybe if the NCAA took a harder stance on this --- arrested you are out for a season, these kids will grow up and act right. I beieve that the University of Tennessee had 8 players arrested since JAN 1st.
