Gald to see that Roy is being pro-active by suggesting to the NCAA to sit Tokoto out a game......and of course they agree. Probably overkill but thats just Roy!

"He hadn't realized he'd make a mistake," Williams said. "We suggested, we said what we'd like to do with the NCAA is hold him out the scrimmage and hold him out the exhibition game, and they agreed and said everything was fi
