You have to be kidding me.
In an action that completely reinforces its history of caving to thugs and coach Jim Boeheim's ridiculous sense of justice (Billy Edelin, anyone?), Syracuse has suspended Eric Devendorf for the rest of the semester.
This semester. As in the one that ended last Friday.
That's right, Eric Devendorf's actions were found to be so despicable that the school is sending him home for Christmas, just like every other non-athlete. What a punishment.
Devendorf could be reinstated on January 12th, the beginning of the spring semester. Just in time to play Georgetown (what a coincidence).
Don't get your hopes up and expect anything more serious from either the university or the basketball team. Devendorf receive no more than this slap on the wrist for his contemptable behavior. The Orange should lose on Saturday against Memphis, but they will most likely remain unbeaten the rest of the way while Devo sits out.
You stay classy, Syracuse.
