Clemson Suspends Four for 2014 Opener vs. Georgia

The Clemson Tigers have suspended four players for the season-opening game against the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens, head coach Dabo Swinney announced on Tuesday.

Defensive end Corey Crawford and guard David Beasley, both starters, were suspended, along with cornerback Garry Peters and offensive lineman Shaq Anthony.

“A huge part of our program is teaching accountability, responsibility and that there are consequences for your actions,” Swinney said in a statement. “These are four good young men, but they broke a team rule and as a result, they will each miss a game. I am hopeful that they will learn and grow from this and have a great 2014 season on and off the field.”

Georgia currently has no players suspended for the game against Clemson, but there are still over 100 days to go. Defensive back Josh Harvey-Clemons was suspended for the game, but he has since been kicked off the team.

Georgia and Clemson are set to meet between the hedges on Saturday, Aug. 30. The game will likely be televised nationally, although an announcement has yet to be made.
