Unfortunate for the four and the program, but what does their suspension/ departure for the team do to the "depth" chart? Also, if their suspended from the team does that mean their released from theirs schollys? Are they still listed as "scholarship" players in terms of NCAA rules and regulations?
If they are suspended players from football activities, then yes, they can still be on scholarship. Where the impact comes is if they are removed permanently from the team. That is a different matter than suspended.

I hope it frees up schollies. Anyway, the team is so loaded with talent, it won't matter much. Pettway did have a legit shot at jack, but we seem to have several others who can step up.
So if their removed permanently from the team then the scholarship they were on can be given to someone else or go toward the 2014 class?
They'd be given to a player that we just signed. As soon as they open up the scholarship is available to another player
If they are dismissed the depth a linebacker takes a hit and somewhat at safety. Jarrick Williams (injured) and Reuben Foster when he comes in will be needed for depth purposes, also we can expect to see a few more freshmen on special teams. We better hope that Dillion Lee and Ryan Anderson are working their way back in to the coach's good graces after being sent home from the NC game, because if they are not in the mix we are really thin at LB.
This goes beyound football. All four should be removed from the university. These were fellow students that were assaulted and the University can not and should not toerate this regardless.
AU fans are a lot like slinkies, not really good for anything but, they do bring a smile to your face when you push them down stairs.
Just a guess: Ardarius Stewart probably begins at safety now that Williams is likely gone.
Cyrus Jones' move to DB could be connected with Stewart starting off at slot receiver.
