How convenient

Boy, who didn't see this coming.

Florida defensive tackle Marcus Thomas - he of the three sacks already this season - has been reinstated to the Gators' team and will play Saturday against LSU.

Thomas was suspended last month for a second violation of the school's substance abuse policy. He appealed the suspension saying both failed tests were the result of one night of marijuana use (wasn't that a party?).

So Thomas misses three weeks of practice and then just days before the Gators' homecoming game against LSU, a committee consisting of university personnel recommends to amend his sanction. Athletic director Jeremy Foley and university president Bernie Machen sign off and Thomas is back.

Now pardon me for being cynical, but does anyone out there think he would have been cleared for, say, Central Florida?
