More Arkansas Razorback Players Suspended

John Pelphrey is losing control of the Arkansas Razorback team.

We already received news that Stefan Welsh was suspended indefinitely.

Today comes news that several others are being suspended. As if Arkansas could afford any other losses.

The biggest surprise is that Courtney Fortson, who will play a major role when he finally gets back to the hardwood, has been suspended indefinitely as well. Fortson averaged 14.8 points, 5.5 rebounds last year and is the team's only point guard with floor experience.

Marcus Britt, who is set for a breakout season, will miss six games while Glenn Bryant will miss two. Walk-on Nick Mason is gone for the entire semester at least.

This leaves, to my count, three players with returning experience—and just eight overall—available on Friday when Arkansas opens against Alcorn State.

If this doesn't get reigned in, and quickly, Pelphrey might find himself without a job sooner than he thought.
