07:14 AM ET 07.11 | For a good time now, many had predicted Marshall Henderson would end up in the news for the wrong reason. His rise in status, sparked by his jersey-popping episode in a win at Auburn, created national headlines. And so you knew Henderson would also garner national headlines if he ever experienced the downfall many predicted, and proof of that came Wednesday when Ole Miss announced that it is suspending the 6-foot-2 guard for a "violation of team rules" that a source told CBSSports.com is a failed drug test. Henderson's future at Ole Miss is suddenly uncertain. A source told CBSSports.com that a stint in a rehabilitation facility is possible. So now it's impossible for anybody to laugh at Henderson's antics and defend his sometimes outlandish behavior because none of it is funny anymore.

It was never funny before, about time they started getting some help for these kids and some of these kids were talked into accepting the help that is needed to getting back onto the right track.

Agree brother.

Didn't think it was funny the last 3 times he's been kicked outa schools, not mention jail last year.

"You just can't fix stupid."

Until he gets a big dose of humility and wants to change himself, it ain't gonna help.

He's had "enablers" around him for a long time that never properly intervened. They actually catalyzed his inappropriate behavior...made it worse.

Like The Great Oz, Guido knows.

Sounds like an utter moron. You just have to put your habit on hold for less than a year and you might make some money, but too stupid to do so.

WPS, don't go whinning about wishing for 0-6 to do his thing, he took your request yesterday, went to the asylum, put them up just for you. Did you even go look. Of course not, not once.Jeepers.

Yes, sir I did...Tried to post a thank-you to you late in the afternoon and again last evening, but the little spinny wheel got me both times.

Appreiciate the work in the Asylum, sir.....keep it up!

This started in HS, when he was busted for weed, coke and counterfeiting to buy said stuff. He truly needs help before someone loses a life over this; his or one from causation

Oops. That's Ritalin. DC would know. It's kept at the school nurse's office.

Like we all were not stupid at that age! They just need more and more guidance and understanding, I for one do not ever remember having all these drugs around when I was so young, a lot less temptations than they have, yet they are no smarter than we were. But all I say is the schools need to recognize the problem and offer some help and help push them that way to try and save some of them. You know, one of them they save just might be my or your kinfolk and be worth saving, no matter how many times it takes.

Correct. That is what I was eluding to. Kids should have adults around them that encourage good behaviors and correct bad ones at a very young age and throughout childhood. They should not have adults around them that do the opposite...i.e...enable, encourage and allow inappropriate behavior. Agree that most of us would probably been just as bad or worse if we hadn't had the proper adult guidance and correction.

Agreed. I called him a moron, mostly because of his attitude, but he does seem to have a deeper problem that needs to be treated in some fashion. Might need to call his basketball aspirations quits while he gets a hold of his life.

Yes

I might have more sympathy for him if he wasn't such a db to go along with the substance abuse
