All of a sudden, the SU football season has turned into a Smashing Pumpkins album. Syracuse Orange And The Infinite Sadness.
The suspension puts Thomas in jeopardy of missing the final two games of the season against Cincinnati (Nov. 26) and Pittsburgh (Dec. 3).
So that's good.
If you weren't aware, Thomas leads the Orange in tackles (82) and leads the Big East in interceptions (6).
So that's even better.
If there's any one thing the Orange couldn't afford heading into this do-or-die portion of the season, it was lose a key component of a defense already being held together by silly string.
So that's the best.
