=== ACC suspends UNC linebacker, three referees ===
Greensboro, NC (Sports Network) - The Atlantic Coast Conference has handed out
several suspensions resulting from Saturday's games, including a one-game ban
for North Carolina linebacker Shakeel Rashad.
Rashad, a freshman, threw a shoulder into the back of an unsuspecting Duke
player while running onto the field as a late substitution. The wide receiver,
Conner Vernon, had to leave the field as a result of the hit.
Since no flag was thrown on the play, head linesman Tyrone Davis and side
judge Angie Bartis were each given one-game bans for their disregard to player
Another league referee, David Epperley, was suspended for one game for failing
to acknowledge a 10-second runoff at the end of the first half during the
Florida State-Miami game on Saturday. The entire crew for the contest received
a letter of reprimand.
