KU football suspends wide receiver Thomas


A Kansas University football player was suspended Monday after a weekend incident involving campus police.

KU wide receiver Mark Thomas was arrested Sunday and released on Monday with no charges filed, according to the Douglas County district attorney’s office.

KU Associate Athletic Director Jim Marchiony said Thomas has been suspended indefinitely.

Thomas, a 6-foot, 208-pound junior from Brooklyn, N.Y., red-shirted during the 2013 season after two seasons at Nassau Community College in New York.

Guess this just makes an opening for a freshman to come in and make an impact (hopefully).

I don't really recognize the name. Was this guy supposed to make much impact?

They call him BigTyme at Nassau CC.

At one point during the recruiting period, I thought he would end up as our best receiver. Rivals lists his 40 as 4.4 and he’s 210 pounds. Hopefully ianello didn’t ruin his ability to catch, because he has some physical tools.

He was suppose to be a slot/deep threat.. Also with they way our WRs have played the last 2 years anyone should be able to come in and make an impact.

So true. Should be exciting to see if this new WR coach can turn some duds back into the studs they were supposed to be to begin with. Also if Reagan’s offense helps the QBs get the ball to them on time and in range.

If those two coaches do what I hope, we should have a real nice WR corps, with or without Thomas.

Meanwhile, it appears that the Jayhawks have another Place Kicker looking to join the football squad. The following is from Jayhawks Slant:

All-state kicker to enroll at KU

John Duvic, an all-state kicker from Illinois, will enroll at Kansas. Duvic kicked 17 field goals as a senior.

Then, the link below is a story that I found for John Duvic.

Surely, the Jayhawks football squad will get at least one consistent field goal kicker out of the guys who have joined in the past couple of years now.

Wyman will get there. He's got the leg and the consistency will come with experience as last year was his first season ever playing football.

Good God !! Come on now. No charges filed and he still gets the boot ?
