Posted November 01, 2011 on AP on Fox
Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive has suspended Arkansas freshman Marquel Wade a game for his hit on a Vanderbilt punt returner deemed as a flagrant or unsportsmanlike act. The SEC announced the suspension Tuesday for Wade's hit on Vanderbilt punt returner Jonathan Krause in No. 8 Arkansas' 31-28 win last week. The league says Wade broke rules for flagrantly interfering with the opportunity to catch a kick and for targeting and leading with the crown of his helmet. Wade will sit out Saturday's game with No. 10 South Carolina in Fayetteville. The freshman apologized Monday, saying he thought Krause had the ball. Wade was ejected and had to be led to the locker room by the strength and conditioning coach.
