Florida State announced that an “academic-related matter” kept starting defensive end Chris Casher from playing in the Seminole’s opener on Saturday night against Oklahoma State, and pay per head agents would like to see what’s next for the player.
“Chris Casher is being withheld pending review of an academic-related matter,” read the statement. “Student privacy will not allow us to expand any further.”
The redshirt sophomore’s fans were very excited, as the player was set to make the first start of his career after playing last season in 13 games. Many of his fans were concerned about his future, as a knee injury kept him out of for most of his season as a freshman.
Pay per head agents saw that Florida State beat Oklahoma State 37-31 in what they saw was a very intense showdown.
Casher’s fans were very disappointed when they found out that the 250-pound, 6-foot-4 player was not able to participate in Thursday’s practice, and coach Jimbo Fisher said that it was due to an absence that was class-related. The team’s fans were also obviously not very happy.
According to sources, Casher was put on probation in the summer by the university for one year after making two breaches of FSU’s code of conduct, which stem from an investigation into QB Jameis Winston for sexual assault. Many fans won’t forget about this incident, as they saw how problematic it proved to be.
According to sources, Winston and Casher were both briefly held by police in 2012, after somebody reported that there were two men carrying a gun on campus. The report said that it ended up being a pellet gun, and the players told the police that they were trying to shoot squirrels. Many fans believe that they were probably joking around, but could see that they took it a bit too far.
The players were also investigated for the damage that was caused at the apartment complex where they were living in during their seasons as freshmen. Many fans were very surprised to learn that their living quarters suffered damages by their BB gun “battle” that ended up costing $4,200, according to the report.
