SEC Suspends Ole Miss DB Trae Elston – VIDEO

The SEC announced on Tuesday that the league has suspended Ole Miss freshman safety Trae Elston for the Rebels’ September 15 game against the Texas Longhorns.

The suspension stems from a play with 3:18 left in the fourth quarter in the Ole Miss/UTEP game last Saturday, when Elston went high and hard on a UTEP  receiver near the goal line.

The play did not draw a flag, but  SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said in a statement that the one-game suspension was “the result of a flagrant and dangerous act” on the part of Elston.

I’m all for the safety of the players, but this is a tough suspension for Elston.

The hit took place after the ball passed the receiver, but I’ve seen worse. Plus, Elston delivered the hit under the chin of the receiver, and not directly to the head.
