Gilbert suspended for Murray State game

Guard Joseph Gilbert, who has started all 15 games in Georgia State’s short history, has been suspended for today’s game against Murray State for a violation of team rules.

Ulrick John will start in Gilbert’s place as the line shuffles around.

John started at center in the loss to Houston two weeks ago, because Michael Davis sustained a season-ending injury during practice. He started the game against Jacksonville State because Ben Jacoby suffered an injury in the loss to Old Dominion in Week 2. Jacoby will start today.

Running back Rosevelt Watson could see his first action this season today. Safety Demazio Skelton may also return from injury.

However, the loss of Gilbert could be a big blow for a team looking to establish a running game as it tries to snap its three-game losing streak. Gilbert transferred from Georgia Tech to pursue masters at Georgia State.

Why do our players keep doing things to get suspended? When will Curry himself be held accountable?

” violation of team rules” No one actually knows what that means except Gilbert and the coaching staff. For all we know, the kid slept through an alarm clock. Instead of bashing the kid or the coaching for whatever disciplinary system we have in place, just role with the punches and be a fan. Gilbert wouldn’t have made this game a W.
