Sorry I'm not able to link, but The Lantern posted a story stating Brian Snead was suspended after the university learned of a rape allegation. Even though he wasn't criminally charged, the school found him having engaged in non consensual sex. The team found out after the third game and shut him down. He was expelled November 27th. Hadn't seen that before but there is your answer - clearly way more serious than grades. If anyone can link that would be appreciated.
Here is The Lantern link.
