The Friday night news dump is in full effect tonight. Northwestern has announced that they have suspended star RB Venric Mark for the first two games of the season:
“I made a mistake and am prepared to deal with the consequences of that,” the senior said in a statement released by the school. “There’s no one that holds me to a higher standard than the one I hold myself to, so nobody is more disappointed than I am.”
Mark will miss the game against Cal and Northern Illinois. That game vs Cal suddenly becomes interesting even though Cal has struggled and the game is in Evanston.
