    I am thinking it was something other than marijuana if he is getting a year suspension.

    So many levels of ridiculousness on this.

    First, a year suspension for marijuana? Are you kidding me?

    Second, they drug test a guy that hasn't played in like 4 months and didn't see a second of action in the game. What purpose does that serve?

    Third, if you ever need a cautionary tale on why to play a year and go to the draft, this is it.

    Something is wrong when you can assault someone and play sooner than you can if you smoke some weed.

    The NCAA has their own drug policy that they enforce for the NCAA tournament and bowl games. Typically, they allow schools to have their own policy and so long as they follow it they don't interfere. However, NCAA rules are clear that if you fail an NCAA drug test for any recreational drug it's a year suspension, although I think that rule has since been knocked down to 1/2 season.

    He'll fit right in with the NBA.

    PS: what's the NCAA penalty for Colorado players?

    A year does seem excessive.

    I agree that a year suspension is ridiculous, but if you know the rules and that you could get suspended for a year if caught, then DON'T DO IT.

    I don't think guys should get suspended for pot, certainly not for a year. But offseason drug testing isn't exactly new. In fact if they didn't do offseason drug testing for PEDs (No, pot isn't a PED, I assume they were testing for more than just pot) then the whole drug testing program would be pretty much pointless since guys could bulk up all offseason and then go clean in season.

    I'm guessing the NCAA can't release the results of his drug test due to privacy laws. Coming out ahead of this story and saying "I've only smoked weed one time ever and doggone it I got caught that time" is just damage control from McGary's camp to try to help save his draft stock. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he actually tested positive for PED's.

    He did a smart thing by coming out and saying it was marjuana though, especially since it has become so main stream, much like NFL players claiming they tested for ADHD meds. I am still HIGHLY skeptical that it was JUST marijuana

    Here's a fun fact:

    The Iowa legislature thinks it's worse to sell weed than it is to touch a minor's genitals.

    They need to just make him stand there and smoke the whole bag.

    The punishment is the same in Colorado. The NCAA has its own rules.
