A few minutes ago, Bleacher Reports' Jason King tweeted that Shawn Oakman will miss tomorrow's game against SMU. Then, he tweeted the following:
Just learned that Oakman's suspension is one game for a violation of team rules. CB Orion Stewart also suspended. Both will be back week 2— Jason King (@JasonKingBR) September 4, 2015
The fact that it's a one-game suspension for both is obviously good, but having to play without them, even against SMU, is obviously not.
Baylor has a couple of options to replace Oakman in K.J. Smith and Brian Nance, but not having Stewart is arguably a bigger problem. There, we'll probably have to turn to two guys I just previewed tonight: Taion Sells or Terrence Singleton. Neither is a wonderful solution to the problem at hand.
Considering it's reportedly just a one-game suspension for Stewart, I don't think this will change things for J.W. Ketchum, but you never know.
If we get more information about what allegedly happened, this is where it will go.
