We are seeing some of the fallout from the arrests of Tre Johnson and Jeff Budinich of Montana State last week.
According to the press release from Montana State, forward Tre Johnson had been dismissed from the team, Jeff Budinich has been suspended three games and will face a bevy of disciplinary sanctions, and the trip to Canada that MSU had been planning has suspended until a later date, which I am guessing will mean a different year.
I presume the difference in suspensions between Johnson and Budinich means that this is not Johnson's first rodeo, so to speak. Both players were arrested last week for breaking into vehicles and theft.
Kudos to Brad Huse for acting strongly and swiftly. The Bobcats frontcourt suddenly looks a bit thin, (which we will look at more later), which will especially hurt Huse as he enters really a make-or-break year. MSU has had a bit of a tough time staying out of the news, and hopefully the swiftness and severity of these punishments will deter anyone else on the team from even thinking about doing anything stupid.
It has been an interesting offseason in Bozeman.
