Arkansas head football coach Houston Nutt suspended junior defensive tackle Ernest Mitchell for the Kentucky game this upcoming weekend. Mitchell was ejected from Saturday's game against Alabama for ripping offensive tackle Justin Britt's helmet and throwing it at him. Addittional information on the jump.
No place for what Mitchell did, although I can understand why he was upset. His leg was caught underneath him, and all 325 pounds of Justin Britt was on top of him, with one hand on this throat and one on his facemask, grinding him into the turf several seconds after the play was whistled dead. Britt did his best soccer player imitation, acting like his head had been nearly severed and limping to the sidelines Brodie Croyle style only to sprint back onto the field on the very next play.
It's always the second guy that gets caught.
