Todd Mayo's Second Suspension Will Come To An End

Hopefully Mayo was still working on his shooting while he was away.

As originally reported last night by Mark Miller of WisSports.net, Todd Mayo will be playing for Marquette during this upcoming season. Paint Touches confirmed the news, but was unable to provide anything more definitive than that.

So all we know is that at some point between now and the beginning of practice, Mayo will be allowed to return to team activities. From this we can tell that he's academically eligible to play and enrolled in classes for the upcoming fall semester. We can also make a reasonable guess that he's met whatever standards head coach Buzz Williams set forth when he indefinitely suspended Mayo to start with.

What we need to keep in mind is that, as I mentioned in the headline, this is Mayo's second suspension, with the first coming in the second half of last year's game against West Virginia. I think it's safe to say that the sophomore guard will not have much leeway in Buzz's eyes and hopefully, he's learned whatever lesson was supposed to be learned by this suspension.

From the perspective of the team, this is a huge positive step. This gives Marquette five reliable guards to fill the playing time between two and three spots on the floor, depending on how Buzz wants to play things at any given moment. In addition, Mayo will provide outside shooting for a team that is otherwise lacking in that department, Junior Cadougan's 13 three pointers in one Milwaukee Pro-Am game notwithstanding.

[UPDATE: Just when the skies appeared to have cleared, another cloud showed up. Early Thursday afternoon, Paint Touches tweeted:

In sum: at this point, who knows?]
