Walter Sharpe has broken his last team rule at Mississippi State. Coach Rick Stansbury kicked Sharpe and fellow sophomore Jerrell Houston off the team on Wednesday for "violating unspecified team rules." That can cover just about anything, but in Sharpe's case it was for missing a practice on Monday. This just over a week after the troubled sophomore was the subject of a team meeting (Sharpe wasn't invited). His teammates told Sharpe to fly right or fly away. He will be a star in Division II next year, or in the NAIA next week if he's impatient.
