Tuesday night Mississippi State head coach John Cohen served his one game NCAA mandated suspension stemming from the events following the series finale with Alabama.
Cohen held a rather spirited discussion with umpires following what some considered a blown call that led to the eventual 8-7 Mississippi State loss.
Wednesday afternoon the Southeastern Conference office notified Cohen his suspension would be extended to include Friday nightâ€™s showdown with No. 6 Florida. SEC commissioner Mike Slive determined Cohen violated Southeastern Conference sportsmanship rules.
The suspension also prohibits Cohen from taking part in Mississippi Stateâ€™s practice on Thursday, May 10.
Any further ejection during the 2012 season will result in an automatic game suspension and the possibility of additional sanctions.
The Bulldogs are 12-12 in SEC and tied for fifth with Arkansas and Georgia in the race for seeding in the SEC Tournament.View more articles in:
