Update: Mike Waters confirms Grant has to sit out one game (whew) due to an NCAA violation related to summer league play.
Say it with me, Syracuse Orange fans. It's. Always. F***ing. Something.
Last year it was James Southerland's academic issues. The year before that it was Fab Melo.
This year? Jerami Grant showed up for the Cornell Big Red game in street clothes and no one is saying why (though Mike Waters has an idea).

SU Athletics spokesman tells me that he does not know why Jerami Grant is not dressed for tonight's game. Says Boeheim may address it after.— Jeremy Ryan (@JeremyRyan44) November 8, 2013
