The drama surrounding linebacker Frank Shannon and the University of Oklahoma continued on Friday afternoon.

Shannon's lawyer held a press conference and blasted the school's decision to suspend Shannon, saying her client was being turned into a scapegoat by the program.

"(Shannon) has been painted in a way that is in no way how he is," Aletia Timmons told reporters.

Timmons said the school "failed" Shannon and that he will stand on the sideline of the Sooners' opener on Saturday in silent protest. She also said Shannon has given no thought to transferring elsewhere and that he told her he is not running from the case until his name has been cleared. (NFL.com)
