Durand Johnson suspended for the season

Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon just announced that Pitt junior forward Durand Johnson has been suspended for the entire season.  Obviously that's a bad blow for the team. Jamel Artis and Sheldon Jeter will have to pick up the slack, and now Cameron Johnson may get more time.

  1. The difference between Pitt and Florida State on how they handle their players when the do stupid stuff is huge. Whatever happened applaud them for taking a stand and doing it the right way. Character is more important than wins. I hope DJ stays with the school and come back better than ever!!

    1. Wow so you would rather cheat than win! That just goes to show one of the many things wrong with this country. Why don't we just let them take classes who don't exist. Screw the kid and his education or teaching them life long lessons, who cares if he gets a worthless degree, RIGHT! We want to win to bring meaning to people's lives who are to big of losers to achieve something by themselves so they have to live through others.

    2. So Anon @ 7:55, what exactly is the BS reason DJ got suspended?? If you know, tell us b/c Pitt hasn't released that info yet.

    3. For Johnson to get suspended an entire year, it most likely is drug related (yes, even marijuana). Normally 3rd strike and 1 year suspension.

      I doubt academics as that would only be a semester suspension plus he is in the middle of current semester. If it were from the spring semester grades, he would have gotten suspended Sept 1 and not play in the exhibition game.

    4. Don't know but it could be testing positive for weed. Pitt athloetic department has zero tolerance for it.

  3. Artis, Jeter... have the opportunity to step up. It's not like these are 2 freshman having to contribute for the first time.

    Cam Wright's return is still the key to the season. He brings the D.
