Numerous media sources are reporting this morning that Auburn freshman reserve quarterback Tyrik Rollison has been suspended from the team for an unspecified rule violation. Rollison, who's taking a redshirt this season, was expected to compete with Neil Caudle for the starting job next year. There's no word on how long the suspension is for or whether he'll participate in any bowl activities over the next month. At least short term, this is a huge blow to Auburn's 2010 plans.
"We have high standards that we have set and fully expect our team to meet," Auburn coach Gene Chizik said. "When these expectations are not met, I will make decisions based upon what is best for the entire football team and the Auburn Family."
