Derrick Washington suspended from Missouri, not their only problem...

It looks like the University of Missouri is going to make a last second run at the offseason legal trouble title.

Today, they announced that senior captain and last years leading runner Derrick Washington was charged with felony deviate sexual assualt...and suspended...indefinitely. And yeah, Washington was 2nd team All-conference last year too.

And.....there's more.

Very early this morning, long snapper Beau Brinkley was arrested and charged with DWI.

Hmmm...sounds like coach Gary Pinkel might have a few issues to deal with?

More from the Columbia Tribune's aptly named Tiger Extra RIGHT HERE

The good news is that the season starts for the Tigers this week. For that matter, just about everyone's does.  Mizzou isn't expected to be a major factor in the Big 12 which will become 10 North, but unless Washington gets his situation resolved, we wouldn't bet on them being much of a all.

Here is a story that Missouri's student station KOMU did on Washington this spring.
