Pitt’s off-field troubles continue to mount up as Dave Wannstedt suspended three more players this week - RB T.J. Peeler, DL Bernardo Nunez, and LB Kevin Adams. The issues appear to be somewhat minor ones at least compared to some of Pitt’s other issues relating to suspensions this season:
As I stated before the game three players did not make the trip and are officially suspended indefinitely from the team for various indiscretions and basic general immaturity. The three players are defensive linemen Bernardo Nunez, linebacker Kevin Adams and tailback T.J. Peeler. Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt said after the game that all three will not be participating with the team until they take care of some things academically and prove they deserve the chance to play college football again.
Obviously, there’s nothing ‘minor’ about not doing well academically, but these issues don’t appear as serious as some of the other things that have plagued Pitt players this year including assault and DUI charges. It seems like the door is open for all three to return to the program.
