Football Suspensions Continue

You knew it couldn't last. Pitt's football team had stayed out of trouble for, oh, about a month.

Still, the news of three more suspensions was still kind of a shock. The 'good' news, if there is any, is that the suspensions seem to be related to academics and conduct issues rather than major trouble involving others.

Paul Zeise in the Post-Gazette noted that DL Bernardo Nunez, LB Kevin Adams, and RB T.J. Peeler have been suspended indefinitely by head coach Dave Wannstedt:

As I stated before the game three players did not make the trip and are officially suspended indefinitely from the team for various indiscretions and basic general immaturity. The three players are defensive linemen Bernardo Nunez, linebacker Kevin Adams and tailback T.J. Peeler. Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said after the game that all three will not be participating with the team until they take care of some things academically and prove they deserve the chance to play college football again.

Nunez and Adams were 2009 recruits and Peeler, a 2010 pickup. All three players were rated as three-star prospects by Scout, but none were figured to contribute greatly this year. As Zeise mentions, none of these suspensions will have a great bearing on how Pitt performs this season. But it's just more trouble in an already difficult year with off-field issues.
