Word out of Gainesville is that Marcus Thomas is facing a 5 game suspension for unknown reasons. He is appealing. Being discussed on multiple sites. Could not have come at a worse time with LSU and Auburn around the corner.

Yeah, pretty much. We had very liitle pass rush without him the first game. Which he was suspended for the same thing, which he says was the same occurence. So he shouldn't be punished again.

Basically, he tested positive in July for it and was automatically suspended for the opener. Then when he was tested several weeks later he was positive again, which means 50% of the season suspension. He's appealing on the grounds that both positive tests were the result of the same event.

Thats his defense. Although I'm no expert but I would think one use of the stuff wouldn't stay in your system that long. Who knows, I don't know the exact amount of time between tests.

That would be a HUGE blow to the defense! He may be the most important player on the defense IMO. It all starts up front, and he's the best one up there. McDonald is good if not great, but he's still coming off two blown knees if I remember right. Not good... not good at all.

It can stay in your system for about 90 days however it is unlikely that it did stay in his system that long

Geez, this same stupid argument comes up from a stoner every time someone gets nailed for using a BANNED substance. It's banned whether a player likes it or not. If he uses it he knows what the consequences are.

You want to be a ball player, you don't use Mary Jane.
Plain and simple.

Well now I'm hearing it was only 4-6 weeks between tests so I guess anything is possible. He is appealing and there has been a similar case in 2001 that was overturned. Lets hope.....

Well Urban Meyer said there was no timetable on the suspension and there could be more or less than 5 games. I hope he comes back before the Auburn game. That game is where he will be needed more than any other game this year

Update: Looks like its an indefinite suspension not a 5 gamer. Appeal ruling will be handed down today.

Actually I don't smoke but thanks for the assumption. I just think there are bigger things that should get criminalized. That slapping a chick comment (UM) would be one. The punishment doesn't fit the crime is what I am trying to get at.

Suspending him would just give him more time to smoke weed so it really won't change him. What they should do is get teamates to rotate making sure he doesn't smoke again, have the coach make him practice longer than the rest of the team making him run around all the time, and cut his social life until the end of the season.

Still unknown from what I've seen. I was looking all over the place for his appeals ruling this morning. Still "indefinite" at this point, which is actually not a bad thing because early reports were 5 games but indefinite could be as few as 1 or as many as 5 by standard suspension rules for a 2nd offense. Meyer has said he is definitely out for tomorrow's game.

90% of college kids smoke pot, the other 10% get high from the fumes.

Actually he could be suspended the rest of the year. Urban Meyer can choose to kick him off the team. I don't think that will happen, But I am saying it could happen.
