Syracuse suspends two for Pinstripe Bowl

NCAAF

Syracuse running back Adonis Ameen-Moore and tight end Max Beaulieu won’t play in Saturday’s New Era Pinstripe Bowl after being suspended for the game due to violations of athletic department rules, reports ESPN.com.

Syracuse coach Doug Marrone made the announcement late Tuesday night. The Orange will already be without linebacker Marquis Spruill and running back Steven Rene for a portion of the game after they were arrested Dec. 2. Both have misdemeanor charges pending after an incident with Syracuse police.

Ameen-Moore, a sophomore running back, has played in six games this season for the Orange, rushing it 30 times for 108 yards and five touchdowns. Beaulieu, a junior tight end, has played in just one game this season, against Connecticut.

The Orange (7-5) face West Virginia (7-5) on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Syracuse have taken the past two games in the series.

Recruit bad citizens from shady backgrounds; reap the consequences.

They play in 3 days.  I'm pretty sure they are in the news cycle.  Idiot.

I guess that's one way to do it.  Suspend a 3rd-string runner and a little-used tight end in order to get the Syracuse name back into the 24 hour news cycle.  No press is bad press, and all of that.
