Oklahoma has suspended receiver Jaz
Reynolds indefinitely after he posted what coach Bob Stoops called
"insensitive remarks" on his Twitter page about a gunman who
committed suicide on the University of Texas campus.
An account with the handle JazReynolds posted the message, "Hey
everyone in Austin, tx.......kill yourself" on Tuesday, the day of
the suicide, followed by a disregard request 5 minutes later. The
account was deactivated Wednesday.
Stoops says he is "incredibly disappointed that someone
connected with our team would react so callously."
Reynolds, who has no catches this season, will miss at least
Saturday's game between the eighth-ranked Sooners and No. 21 Texas
Stoops says that the "rivalry with Texas will not come at the
expense of dignity and respect."
