More bad news for Florida. Freshman wide receiver James Robinson has been suspended for next Saturday's season opener against Michigan as a result of being cited for marijuana possession last week.

When asked about Robinson's eligibility for the Michigan game, Florida head coach Jim McEwain replied some what sarcastically by saying “[I] thought that was perfectly obvious… Of course not. Come on.”

Robinson was cited for marijuana possession by University of Florida police, along with freshman linebacker Ventrell Miller last Monday, according to SEC Country. Miller, was already suspended for the opener an incident involving the mismanagement of school-issued funds. Six other Florida players involved with the incident have also been suspended for the game.

Michigan faces Florida in a neutral-site game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tx. on Sept. 2.
