A source told SportsTalk today that USC wide receiver Shaq Roland’s current suspension is for taking a prescription drug. The source indicated the prescription drug was the ADHD medicine Adderall.
This seems to contradict what Steve Spurrier said about Roland’s status following the UCF game Saturday. “Ask the athletic director,” Spurrier said. “He’s got a university policy deal that he’s dealing with right now. And it’s not drug related. Put that one the books.”
So does this mean Spurrier was being less than truthful about the nature of the suspension or he does it mean he thinks Adderall, which is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance, is not a drug?
Spurrier said Tuesday Roland, who missed the UCF game, will also miss the next two weeks serving a suspension. He didn’t go into any details other than to say it was for a violation of university policy.
