Wisconsin dismisses running back Loyal Crawford, suspends RB Antwan Roberts

USA Today

Just four days before Wisconsin is set to open its 2021 Big Ten football season, head coach Paul Chryst had to deal with a pair of disciplinary issues.

UW officials announced Tuesday that freshman tailback Loyal Crawford has been dismissed from the team and freshman tailback Antwan Roberts has been suspended.

Neither player was expected to play in the opener Saturday against Penn State.

Crawford on Twitter accused Roberts of breaking into his dorm room and attacking him.

"I was treated so unfairly in all of this," he wrote. "I want everyone to know that. They didn’t even want to hear my side. He literally broke into my dorm room and tried to jump me while I was sitting on the couch with my back turned to him. He started it all."
