Another chance for Marcus Thomas

Marcus Thomas will be playing for the first time in several months today when he plays in the inaugural "Texas vs. the Nation" all-star game at the Sun Bowl. Thomas, probably the most talented player on the field, was once considered a first rounder. However, after a senior season full of turmoil, he'll need a big game and a lot of fast talking to convince NFL personnel to take a chance on him.

Thomas tested positive for marijuana twice over a four-week period, and was later kicked off the Florida Gators for violating terms of his reinstatement.

On the field Thomas is an impact interior lineman. He has a quick burst off the line of scrimmage and his combination of strength, agility, and determination make him hard to stop.

I am not fully certain what his metabolic rate is and if there was continued usage Marijuana; However, after doing some research, THC can remain in your system from 15 to 30 days depending on the person so unfortunately it makes sense that he would test positive twice in a 4 week period. If there was a way to test for continued usage and he failed that then I would be more so okay with outcasting him out of college football.

All in all, "Marijuana is bad mmkay, and you shouldn't smoke it cause its bad..." Plus he should've been smart enough to know that he may get caught and this whole thing would happen.

well, i follow gator football quite closely and marcus thomas a phenomenal talent. i'm glad that he could get a second chance with an nfl team because he could surely start for some of these teams and have immediate impact. any team that takes the gamble should get quite the payoff.

The only way to have tested for continual use would have been through a hair sample. Much as is used when someone is believed to have been poisoned. They check to see if it was a single exposure or a dose over many months.
