Not a real shock, but Steve Kragthorpe announced this afternoon that wide receiver/return man JaJuan Spillman's suspension has been upgraded from indefinitely to the entire season.
Upset that he wasn't getting more touches with Harry Douglas unavailable, Spillman voiced his displeasure with the coaching staff in the first half of the NC State game. He was subsequently benched for the remainder of the game, and suspended indefinitely two days later.
Kragthorpe did say the possibility exists that Spillman could earn his way back onto the team after the end of the season.
The announcement marks the latest bit of bad news in what has been a tumultuous 2007 for Spillman. On Jan. 31 he was charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana after he wrecked his car and was confronted by police. The situation was reportedly handled internally, but made its ways onto the front page of local newspapers on Aug. 16. He is currently set to stand trial on Dec. 11.
All right! Go Cards, beat Cincinnati!!!
