University of North Carolina head coach Butch Davis has suspended defensive tackle Marvin Austin indefinitely.
Mancini’s Take: Interestingly, coach Butch Davis maintained that the defensive tackle wasn’t suspended for allegedly making improper contact with an agent. Instead, he indicated that Austin was disciplined for violating team rules and neglecting his responsibilities to the team. In addition, the junior defender is still under investigation by the NCAA.

I’m not quite sure how much of the stories out there are true, but Austin’s Twitter messages are out for everyone to see and I think it’s safe to say that the young man is definitely immature. College players are continually instructed on the types of people and activities to steer clear from, but the big man took the selfish route. He
