That's Doug Marrone today after practice. A practice in which Syracuse's top running back and starting LB were not present. No word yet on what, exactly, they've gotten themselves into, but this cannot possibly be good. Updates as they happen. WAER is all over this so far so keep an eye on them
Get those Facepalm images ready.
Update: The Syracuse Twitterati Legal Team chimes in to remind us that it might not actually be that bad. "Ok relax folks. Detectives could question them because they witnessed something, not because they are suspects. Relax until more is known."
Update: Nolan Weidner checks in with his recap from the day's practice. No mention of Delone or Ryan.
Update: Nolan checks in with his story. Not too much to add other than there's no confirmation as to exactly what they did, saw or didn't do.
