Middle Tennessee Suspends Quarterback

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Middle Tennessee is suspending
quarterback Dwight Dasher for accepting a $1,500 loan in violation
of NCAA rules.
However, university officials are also asking the NCAA to
reinstate him.
Athletic director Chris Massaro issued the statement before a
news conference Friday. Dasher led the Blue Raiders to a 10-3
record last season and set a bowl rushing record with 201 yards.
Dasher will be allowed to practice with the Blue Raiders, but
Middle Tennessee officials expect him to miss some games.
The Blue Raiders open the season Sept. 2 with a home game
against Minnesota.
