Peter G. Aiken-US PRESSWIRE
The Trib's Steve Walentik reported this afternoon that Mizzou starting guard Mike Dixon and freshman Dominique Bull were suspended for "undisclosed violations of team rules."
#Mizzou Coach Frank Haith said the length of the suspensions has not been determined.— Steve Walentik (@Steve_Walentik) October 26, 2012
Haith said Dixon had not practiced for more than a week but will return next week. He and Bull won't play in exhibition opener Monday.— Steve Walentik (@Steve_Walentik) October 26, 2012
That appears to be all we know at this point. This could have bee a class attendance issue, a team meeting issue, general insubordination ... who knows. In the Trib article above, Frank Haith insisted it wasn't a legal issue, so while more details may emerge at a later date, we may never no more than "he was suspended." Right now, my guess is that Dixon will not miss any regular-season games, but that's just a guess. Better now than February or March, I guess.
