DALLAS (AP) -SMU coach June Jones suspended three starters for the final two games of the season under his ``three strikes'' rule.
Receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Aldrick Robinson and linebacker Justin Smart are out for the rest of the season, The Dallas Morning News reported in its online edition Wednesday.
Under Jones' ``three strikes'' rule, a player can pick up a strike for missing or being late to practice, team meetings and study halls, among other violations.
Jones told the newspaper the suspensions would serve notice about what it takes to build a winning program.
A call by The Associated Press to the university on Wednesday night was not immediately returned.
Robinson has 1,047 yards receiving this season and Sanders has 958, ranking them No. 4 and No. 10 in the nation. Smart is second on the Mustangs (1-9) in tackles with 74.
