Seantrel still not addressing suspension rumors

Seantrel Henderson

A pair of rumors involving Seantrel Henderson made the rounds earlier this month that questioned the mammoth offensive lineman’s short- and long-term future at Miami.

The first involved Henderson being unhappy at the school and strongly considering a transfer.  That speculation was immediately and swiftly shot down by everyone from head coach Al Golden to Henderson’s father to Henderson himself.

The second concerned the sophomore lineman, along with five of his Hurricane teammates, facing a suspension for the season opener on the road against Maryland.  On this front, and unlike the other rumor, the silence has been deafening.

Henderson was again handed a bucket of water from the media Saturday morning and could’ve doused a fire that’s been burning for more than two weeks.  And, of course, he didn’t.

I really don’t speak on rumors,” Henderson said when asked about a potential suspension, and shortly after he again addressed the transfer rumors.

Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post said it best when he wrote “[w]hy neither coach Al Golden nor Henderson won’t come out and definitively say that the gigantic sophomore hasn’t been suspended is beyond me. Why not just snuff out the ‘rumors’ and move on?”

There’s probably actually a relatively easy answer to the question Milian poses.  The suspension rumors are indeed true, and, for whatever reason, Golden doesn’t feel the need to confirm them at this point in time.

Hey, it’s his football program.  He can handle it whatever way he sees fit, regardless of how head-scratching it looks to the people on the outside looking in.

    He might have been suspended for skipping class but given the chance to redeem himself by acing the class. Or, since he’s a cane, he might have been suspended for a string of homicides and if he isn’t caught by September, they’ll let him play

    the dude is 6-foot-8 350 pounds solid ripped muscle, the media better back off before the big man snaps.

    I said this kid was a troublemaker from Day One, when the recruiters were falling all over him. I knew it was only a matter of time before he caused a lot of headaches for some unlucky program.

    And drunkenhooliganism, I agree with you about the string of homocides. And if he is caught by September, the Gators will still take him on a transfer.

    By the way, gatorfan – note my undying support for the “alma mater” from which you granted me my honorary degree. Thanks again for that.

    As soon as they announce his suspenion, I bet he will announce he will transfer. Maybe u should go back to Minnesota or where your from and daddy can re-place you in a new school.
