Antoine Winfield Sr. Wants Answers
Minneapolis, MN (Learfield) -- A famous father of one of the ten suspended University of Minnesota football players is not happy.
Former Minnesota Vikings great defensive back Antoine Winfield, Senior, is mad that his son Antoine Winfield, Junior is included on the suspended list and even more upset that no one has told him or his family why.
Winfield, Sr. told reporters last night that he had been waiting for nine hours on campus near the office of Gopher athletic director Mark Coyle and was never able to communicate with him about the suspension. Winfield, Sr. says he believes his son is not part of this situation and was never included on the original report back in September.
The entire Gopher football team is boycotting team activities and could sit out the Holiday Bowl in support of their suspended teammates.
