Word came out after what was considered "one of the best practices of the year," by head coach Jimbo Fisher that both Greg Reid and Telvin Smith were suspended for Saturday's game against Charleston Southern for violating team rules.

Reid is our No.1 defensive back and return specialist, while Smith is our backup middle linebacker. It will be less entertaining without Reid returning kicks, but it will allow someone else to step up in his absence.

The suspensions aren't that big of a deal because it's Charleston Southern and not Oklahoma we are playing. It still raises a couple questions. What were the team violations they broke? Will it only be a one game suspension?

I think the answer to the second question is simple in my books. YES! There is no way those two will be out for the Oklahoma game unless they did something off the charts wrong.

As for the details on their violations, one will never know how Fisher will go about handling that with the media. I would like to think it wasn't that big of a deal, but just one that was big enough for him to make an example out of the two. 

I wish that we could go one full season without having any disciplinary issues. Is that so hard to ask? It probably is in today's society. 

All I know is I hope it isn't a common occurrence because for once I like our team being out of the spotlight for the wrong things. So let's keep our fingers crossed, Seminole nation, that this doesn't continue to happen.
