Three players suspended? Three players gone?

It seemed like it was all good news that was coming out of camp until now... ESPN is reporting that three players have been suspended for the first game of the season against Southern Utah and three players dismissed.

The suspended players are sophomore cornerback Kenny Browder, freshman running
back Nehemie Kankolongo and sophomore place-kicker Ian Watts. They will miss the
season opener against Southern Utah on Sept. 4.

Freshman wide receiver
Turmour Battle has been dismissed from the team.

And Christensen says
redshirt freshman free safety Larry Mitchell and sophomore wide receiver David
Tooley have decided to leave the team for personal reasons

This is a huge shock to lose three players and have three players miss the openers. The fact that David Tooley left is a huge deal - he was considered a bright spot at TE for this year. More reaction on this later.
