You'd think Notre Dame was an SEC team with all the preseason suspensions. (Yeah...I said it)
The Fighting Irish announced today that starting RB Cierre Wood and DE Justin Utupo will be sitting out 2 games for the vaguely worded "Violation of team rules".
This comes as Notre Dame prepares to leave for Ireland to kick off their season vs. Navy.
Wood, led the team last season with 1,102 yards.

So...Brian Kelly has suspended 4 players to start the season. No, it probably won't have a huge impact vs. Navy, though it might after that when they play Purdue. One of the 4 sitting is last years starting QB Tommy Rees, though Rees may not have been able to win the starting job this season, even if he wasn't in trouble.
Enjoy your season kickoff College Football fan.
