Fab decided to concentrate on his phD thesis in organic chemistry. He felt academics was more important than basketball.

They SAID academic reasons, but his suspensions are sure close to the announcement that Syracuse has been playing dudes that have failed multiple drug tests as well. Who the hell knows what the real story is.

Worse then grades. Melo decided to beat his girlfriend, again. His attorney was talking to a higher up at the bank in Syracuse that he works at. Info may become public soon. The guy is such a loser. I was mad that he was bombing school again, turns out it was a lot worse then that. I hope he gets arrested and in trouble for it this time...this is not the first time he has beaten his girlfriend and gotten caught

Also it was not the NCAA that suspended him. The school decided to after the most recent call. With the way information spreads this days I am really surprised that the school has been able to keep this info private

however from what I have heard from people I know back in Syr is that he wasnt meeting with his tutors for his classes.

I cannot be 100% sure. I live in Syracuse, and my girlfriend works in a bank. Her boss is the kind of guy thats really outgoing and knows everyone around. A ton of people in the area bank there, and I guess her boss has "his sources" and seemed really mad about the info (he is a huge SYR fan, and defends them 99.9% of the time) The whole situation makes me think it is very likely true and a reliable source. I guess Melo has a GPA under 1,  but the reason he is not playing is he beat his gf again (they were talking details and all that, but I know how stories get blown out of proportion so Ill just stick to the overall story being that he beat his gf)

I was just wondering , you said the school suspended him ! So it had nothing to do with the NCAA ?

If this is true , Then I commend the School for stepping up to the Plate on this one , and doing what is Right !

Yeah, I am proud of SYR on that one. The world seems to be against them...but they made the decision to basically kick Melo off, not the NCAA. I hope Melo is done after this year and wish him nothing but the worst in the future. Guy should be in prison, but likely will be a millionaire playing basketball.

Im a big Syracuse fan for many years ,been to tons of games as i only live a short drive away in Niagara Falls !

Heres the thing , He probably will end up with a huge NBA contract....and I hope he ends up just like the other Melo we all know, A complete Cancer to any team he plays on ! Furthermore , the team that does decides to overlook these serious issues and  gambles on him because of his talent, will get what  they deserve in the long run.....A FIRST ROUND BUST !

Yeah difficult on him, because he overhears people talking about a story written about him and he does not have anyone to read it to him anymore
