first_imgA Charleston Southern football player's tweet about being suspended.Ben G. Robinson/FacebookCharleston Southern’s football program has a ton of players suspended.Charleston Southern appears to have 30-plus players suspended for spending money on school supplies that was given to them to buy books – and only books.Ben Robinson, a CSU running back, posted this on Facebook, saying he and some of his teammates used leftover money to buy things like pencils, binders and electronics.From Charleston Southern running back Ben Robinson’s Facebook page.— Ariya Massoudi (@AriyaMassoudi) September 9, 2016The NCAA rulebook states that schools can give money to players for books, but only for the exact amount needed.Other CSU players posted messages, too.Frank Cirone, a CSU offensive lineman, says he and the rest of the offensive line have been suspended. He says everyone will have to pay back the money they spent on non-book items.Wow.

They’re set to play No. 3 Florida State tomorrow.Still up for decision who will be suspended and when. Coach will sit vs. Albany State. Assistant will sit this weekend vs. FSU (more…)— Alison Posey (@AlisonPosey14) September 9, 2016It is not determined whether some suspensions for kids will be served this weekend or vs. Monmouth September 24th.— Alison Posey (@AlisonPosey14) September 9, 2016So there you have it. It’ll be interesting who sits and who plays this weekend. Either way, CSU will be depleted. Was already missing…— Alison Posey (@AlisonPosey14) September 9, 2016…top 2 QB’s, running back, and kick returner.
