LATEST UPDATE: On Friday, Gary Pinkel dismissed Green-Beckham from the Mizzou program.

UPDATE: No arrests will be made. However, if you check out the tweets from David Morrison’s twitter account (Mizzou beat writer for Columbia Daily Journal), you’ll see some disturbing details that won’t be lost on Gary Pinkel.

Here are just a few:


Original BE Sports report from Tuesday is below…

Missouri announced Monday that it has suspended star wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

‘DGB,’ the nation’s No. 1 recruit in the 2012 class who chose the Tigers over Arkansas, is a rising junior. Green-Beckham had 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns as a true sophomore. He had a pair of TD catches in a 59-42 loss to Auburn in the SEC Championship Game.

According to a pair of reports out of Columbia from two different student newspapers, Green-Beckham was allegedly involved in an altercation between “2 and 3 a.m.” on Sunday morning. He was not arrested.

According to the Kansas City Star, more details are expected to emerge on Thursday or Friday.

If DGB is unable to play in 2014, it would be a huge loss for Gary Pinkel’s team. Obviously, any such presumption is a major stretch at this point, but the situation has got to create anxiety for Mizzou fans.

If Green-Beckham is suspended early in the season, here’s a look at the Tigers’ first four games: vs. South Dakota St., at Toledo, vs. UCF and vs. Indiana.

In other college football news this week, a CBS Sports report says that Georgia and Notre Dame are in discussions to play a home-and-home series in 2018 and 2019.

Also, Tennessee and Utah St. have moved their season opener to Sunday night. For UT fans unfamiliar with the talent of Aggies’ QB Chuckie Keeton, well, you’ll be very aware of skills soon.
