Aaron Cephus suspended?
SWC Roundup reporting that it is for violation of team rules and says he is no longer even listed on the team roster. Anyone know anything more?

RE: Aaron Cephus suspended?
This has been discussed on the Football Schedule Notes thread. No additional news, but it clearly must be a serious violation if he's been taken off the roster, at least for the time being.

Camp opened today and doesn’t look like Cepheus is present, so guessing it’s not going to be a short suspension.

He must be gone for good. No one is saying anything, so Rice must not want the story getting out. Big loss. It's time for a young hotshot to step up.

He wouldn't have been taken off the roster if people expected it to be short lived. It was clearly a major violation, and probably of University policy; not just team policy.

Bloomgren was asked by the Roost and they said they’re working through it so he’s probably not gone yet.

Glynn Hill on Twitter today:
“Re these Cephus questions, the coaches (not the university/admin) issued the suspension...it was behavioral not academic.

A return is not out of the cards but—especially for folks hoping to see him back by the opener vs Army—I wouldn’t hold my breath.”

He probably got caught smoking weed.

Please don't assume. This is a yougmans character you are publicly speculating on with absolutely no evidence. You are potentially starting a rumor that could very well not even remotely be the case.

Agreed. If and wen we ever need to know, we will know. Until then, speculation starts rumors, and we don't need either.

It's just that all these young college kids smoke weed. It's not a big deal, but I can see why there would be serious consequences if an athlete on scholarship at Rice got caught doing it. In my opinion, marijuana should be legalized, but that's my opinion. I'm a smoker myself, and not at all ashamed to say so. I wouldn't hold it against him in any way.

It isn't about YOU it's about THE KID. There are plenty of people that would hold this against him and your rumor could cost him in ways you nor I can imagine.

I'm with you Nightowl. Unless there is first-hand knowledge, this is senseless speculation

That's all it is, speculation. Anything else I could possibly think of for his being dismissed would be much more serious than smoking a little pot.

THE KID obviously took a stupid pill to justify such dramatic action by the team, regardless of what it was. Agree that we should not speculate but not sure it really matters what the contents are/were. He hurt himself, family, coaches, teammates, etc. Maybe it should cost him and be held accountable in ways that we should imagine as he has hurt himself (NFL talent) but maybe more importantly, has hurt more stakeholders than just him.

THE KID who has so much P5/NFL talent is actually lucky to be at Rice off-the-grid only being talked about on a nobody paying attention message board. If he were playing at a place that matched his athleticism, he would be on Worldwide Leader and have speculation all over the public domain that would be way worse than what little has been speculated here.

Whatever happened, do hope the wheels come back on and we see him playing again. THE KID does have talent.

I was just listening to the latest The Roost podcast. They mention that Cephus may be gone indefinitely, and that Rice is "preparing for the possibility of life without him." His infraction must have been something really serious.
