13 Louisiana-Lafayette football players indefinitely suspended after arrests on theft charges

Louisiana-Lafayette has indefinitely suspended 13 football players for "violation of team rules," reportedly after they were arrested in connection with an alleged campus theft.

According to the Lafayette Advertiser, the 13 players -- six of whom were full- or part-time starters in 2016 -- are charged with stealing belongings from another student's dorm room. The players have been charged with criminal conspiracy to commit felony theft following an incident at a campus dorm on April 5, resulting in the alleged theft of items valued at approximately $2,400.

Football coach Mark Hudspeth released the following statement through the school's athletic department on Wednesday:

"On behalf of our football program, I would like to apologize to Cajun Nation and the University. We do not condone the behavior that was represented and we expect higher standards of our student-athletes.

"We work diligently every day to guide, educate and develop these young men, so it is disappointing when we do not meet those standards.

"We will be respectful of the legal process as it runs its course."

The 13 players, including position, class and hometown:

Matt Barnes, TE, Sr., Groesbeck, Texas

Joe Dillon, DE, Soph., Tylertown, Miss.

Denarius Howard, DB, Sr., Greenwood, Miss.

Robert Hunt, OG, Soph., Burkeville, Texas

Jarvis Jeffries, DE, Sr., Gastonia, N.C.

LaDarius Kidd, DT, Jr., Gulfport, Miss.

Terik Miller, DB, Soph., Pensacola, Fla.

Damar'ren Mitchell, DB, Soph., Magnolia, Texas

Trey Ragas, RB, RFr., New Orleans, La.

Simeon Thomas, DB, Sr., Miami, Fla.

Levarious Varnado, DB/KR, Sr., Calhoun City, Miss.

D'Aquin Withrow, OT, Sr., Harvey, La.

Jordan Wright, RB, Soph., Pearl, Miss.

Dillon, Hunt, Jeffries, Mitchell, Thomas and Withrow were full- or part-time starters in 2016. Dillon was a freshman All-America pick after totaling seven sacks last season.

only 13 players lost? sounds like what we call a Wednesday in San Marcos since the 2014 season concluded

don't they already have some sort of self-sanctions imposed from another event that happened last year which I haven't seen any articles that have followed up on that event?...

You sure I thought it was Lousy-ana that got hit for trying to "fix" their grades last year?

It was a coach that had done it at another U (P5 that got wrist slapped) and came to them and did it again. They self imposed first.

Some of those 13 guys there, in the list, are starters. We'll have to see what comes of it.

LA-Laf? come on man. They have never gone by that before. For someone who nitpicks people posting non facts you know better.

Much as I hate being cynical, I bet some of the suspensions are lifted by the season opener and the rest by the start of conference.

That means the time to get it done now is now while two of the powers are on probation. You only need to finish in the top three to five to get a bowl game. Do it, NOW! :eatemup:
