AU’s Bray Suspended For Game Arkansas Game

Last Thursday, Auburn receiver and punt returner Quan Bray was arrested for a violation of his driving permit and cited for loud music and possession of an open container of alcohol.  As a result, he’s now been suspended for this weekend’s game against Arkansas at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Last year, Bray’s father admitted to killing his mother, which Gene Chizik referenced while announcing the suspension:


“I’m proud of the way in the last year and a half that he’s carried himself, and the way he’s overcome a lot of adversity.  Unfortunately, he made a bad decision this weekend.  What comes with that is consequences…

Part of our job as coaches is to help young guys grow up.  That’s part of my job, and, again, in a perfect world you don’t want any of these things to happen.  But my job — as well as winning football games — is to help young guys come in here as boys at 18 and great into men when they leave at 22.  That’s what our goal is with any guy who may make a decision that’s not what you want.”


Bray — a sophomore — was was driving on a suspended license that was only to be used to drive to work, to school or to his doctor.  Instead, he was visiting friends at the University of West Georgia when he was stopped.

According to The Opelika-Auburn News, Trovon Reed will get the first opportunity to fill in for Bray, who has 11 catches on the year.  Only Emory Blake and Philip Lutzenkirchen have more for the Tigers.  He has also returned four punts for 23 yards through four games.

Report: NCAA Investigators Head To Louisiana In Auburn Probe

And this is the danger of having NCAA investigators on your tail.

While sources continue to say that NCAA sleuths have yet to turn up any serious new dirt regarding Auburn’s recruitment of Cam Newton, the NCAA’s investigation into the Newton recruitment might lead to the discovery of other violations involving other players.

Back in January, Thayer Evans of relayed the story of Auburn’s surprising recruiting success in Thibodaux, Louisiana.  Monday, the NCAA turned up to talk to Auburn signee Greg Robinson and three other people in Thibodaux regarding AU’s recruitment of Robinson and current Tiger receiver Trovon Reed (who signed with Auburn last year).

The NCAA is taking an interest in a person named Sean Nelson — who may or may not be acting as a “street agent” for players — and Auburn assistant Trooper Taylor.
