BYU WR Blackmon says he's suspended, will miss opener

It appears that BYU will be missing another one of its offensive weapons when it lines up Aug. 29 to face UConn in a 2014 season opener.

Devon Blackmon, a transfer from Riverside (Calif.) College who originally began his college career at Oregon, noted on his Twitter account on Monday night that his first action of the season will be against Texas on Sept. 6 in Week 2.

"Rules are rules … Abide by them or suffer the consequences … Looking forward to the Texas game," Blackmon tweeted, using the Twitter handle @AshantiBlackmon.

When I tweeted "Is BYU WR @AshantiBlackmon out for the UConn game? Sure sounds like it."

Blackmon replied "yea, We have team standards, and there’s consequences if you don’t follow them, I shouldn’t wear earrings But I’ll bounce back."

Did BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall really just suspend a guy an entire game for wearing earrings?

Not if you believe former Cougar defensive back Mike Hague, who graduated last spring.

On his Twitter account, @Mikehague32 tweeted: "Earrings??? Ha that’s comical and highly inaccurate. #smokescreen
