You may remember the University at Buffalo player who was caught advertising on his Facebook page for someone to write a paper for him. He was suspended from the Bulls for the entire spring and summer. Well, good news, Andy Robinson finished that paper and all the rest of his coursework over the summer.
The school and team reinstated him on the team, allowing him to resume working out and practicing with the team once more. This includes the Labor Day weekend trip to Canada for scrimmages. He will, however, be suspended for the first three games of the season.
"He is back practicing with the team after serving a suspension in the spring," said UB coach Reggie Witherspoon in a statement released by the school. "He has done everything asked of him from the university, division of athletics and men's basketball program to atone for his actions and has learned and grown from his mistake. Andy had a successful summer session in the classroom and we look forward to a successful senior season on the court."
I'll give Buffalo credit. They actually did a lot more than most programs would in punishment. Most may have suspended him over the spring, but then let him back on and not have him miss a game. Saying things how it was time to move on. Especially the team's leader in scoring and steals. While letting him back on the team, they have actually issued a real punishment with game suspensions.
