The Mississippi State Bulldogs are in hot water with the NCAA, as they find themselves right in the crosshairs of the governing body following another scandal related to the academic standing of their players.

The university suspended 10 football players and one basketball player after they had coursework completed by a tutor who doubled as a "test-taker," throwing the football team's season under water before it's even begun.

While FERPA prevents the names of athletes being released, rumors claim that eight of the 10 players were either freshmen or upperclassmen who would not see the field, while two of the players involved were potential starters.
