Kevin McCrarey of SportsTalkSC.com is reporting that Shaq Roland's suspension--announced just minutes prior to the Central Florida game--is for taking the prescription drug Adderall despite, presumably, not having a been issued a prescription for Adderall.
Even through Tuesday's press conference, Steve Spurrier has only been willing to say that Shaq Roland's mysterious suspension was due to a violation of university policy. Spurrier revealed today that the suspension would keep Roland out through the Arkansas game, meaning that he would miss a total of three games.
What makes this situation really weird is that Spurrier boasted in his post-game press conference that the suspension is not drug-related but Adderall is, of course, a drug that is prescribed to treat ADHD.
Maybe the report is wrong. Maybe Spurrier isn't 100% up to speed on what Adderall is. Maybe we'll never know the whole story until it gets told in the lyrics of a Hold Steady b-side.
