Dangerfield suspended for final regular season game

15 November 2012 By Alena Schwarz, Sports Editor 4 Comments

Senior safety Jordan Dangerfield has been suspended for Towson’s final game of the regular season the Colonial Athletic Association announced Thursday. Dangerfield received two unsportsmanlike penalties during the Tigers’ 41-10 win over Rhode Island Saturday, Nov. 10.

“CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager and CAA Football Coordinator of Officials Jim Maconaghy reviewed the video of the two plays, along with the National Coordinator of Football Officials and his advisory panel. The NCAA panel concluded that Dangerfield’s actions in the Rhode Island game warranted a one-game suspension and the CAA agreed,” the release stated.

Towson will conclude the regular season against New Hampshire  Saturday, Nov. 17. Kickoff is set for noon in Durham, N.H. and the game can be viewed in the Baltimore area on Comcast Sports.

Currently, Towson is in a 4-way tie for second in the CAA along with James Madison, Richmond and Villanova. Old Dominion and New Hampshire are tied with the best record in the CAA. Old Dominion cannot win the conference because it has already decided to join Conference USA next season. To win the CAA, Towson will need to defeat New Hampshire, Old Dominion needs to beat James Madison, William & Mary needs to beat Richmond and Delaware needs to defeat Villanova.

However, if Villanova defeated Delaware, Towson would still win the conference because the Tigers defeated the Wildcats on Oct. 27 49-35.

The Towerlight will update this story as more information becomes available.

    Way to not even mention what he did in the game.

    Blame this one on Mike Waddell also. If he wasn’t such a dick, the league office would have worked with Towson on this. Since everyone hates Mike, they stick it to our student athletes. Mike Waddell is a lier and a cheater and nobody likes him. He is bad for Towson.

    Seems there two parts; one about the suspension, the other where Towson stands in the CAA. Attention Towerlight finish with the suspension then create a separate article for the upcoming game or sidebar it.


    Fuck off. I hate MW with all of my heart, but you’re being a jackass. I know that people like you want to blame him for everything negative that happens at TU (I failed an exam this past week… I think it has something to do with Wadell, but I haven’t decided how yet), but it’s just not true. It’s a fact that he is a liar and a dickhead. However, that has no bearing on whether or not our players get suspended. That is a wildly absurd claim.
