He says the players do not deserve suspensions and as far as he and Coach Craig Bohl are concerned, the matter "is over." Nine current players are among 15 people accused of faking signatures on well-funded initiatives dealing with a conservation fund and medical marijuana. With the suspect petitions disqualified, neither initiative had enough signatures to get on the ballot.
