Mississippi State Suspends Ravern Johnson After Twitter Controversy
Johnson, a 6-foot-7 senior swingman for the Bulldogs, leads the team with 17.7 points a game.
The suspension stems from some "inappropriate tweets" Johnson posted after the team's 75-61 loss to Alabama. Johnson complained about his role in the offense and his lack of touches. Freshman center Renardo Sidney joined the fray before both accounts were deleted amidst a firestorm of angry fan reactions late Wednesday. On Thursday, MSU coach Rick Stansbury banned the use of Twitter by players.
