Sports software services were surprised to learn that on Monday, NC State said that seven of the Wolfpack’s players ended up being suspended for their game this weekend against the Louisville Cardinals after an incident with a BB gun that took place at a residence off-campus.
Josh Jones, starting safety, and Jerod Fernandez, who happens to be the team’s top tackler, were both given suspensions, to not mention WR Jumichael Ramos, CB Mike Stevens, DT Justin Jones, WR Johnathan Alston, and DE Pharoah McKever.
Terronne Prescod, Kalen McCain, Tyler Jones, Maurice Trowell, and Deyshawn Middlebrooks also participated, and ended up being put on probation by the team.
Last week, all of these players took part in a BB gun game, and many fans were very disappointed to learn that the players had to be involved in this.
As Fernandez is out of the game, Airius Moore is now the player who is set to start on Saturday at middle LB when the Wolfpack takes on the Cardinals on Saturday. This season, Fernandez was able to record 58 tackles, and the player will have two interceptions and be the one to lead the team. Jones has 38 tackles and is ranked at fourth place for NC State.

Many fans were probably very upset when they learned about these suspensions, and sports software services believe that the Wolfpack will most likely receive a very big blow with them being out of the team. Maybe it’s simply college life, but many fans wonder why these players had to engage in this behavior if they knew that they were breaking the
