Never saw this coming. Seemed like such a stand-up gentleman. Can you believe that 582 re-tweeted that garbo and, what's more, 169 people Favorited it? I'm afraid I know one of those people. In fact, I'm sure of it. #marriedintoitthough
That violation is a failed drug test, according to CBSSport.com’s Gary Parrish, who reports Henderson’s status with the team is “legitimately up in the air.” It’s not the first time Henderson, who led Ole Miss with 20.1 points a game last season, has been linked to drug issues.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said in statement Henderson has failed to live up to the leadership role he was expected to take entering his senior season with the Rebels.
“Since the season ended, we have talked a lot about Marshall taking a greater leadership role with our team,” Kennedy said. “With that comes greater responsibility, and he must do a better job of living up to the high standard we expect from him and he desires from himself.”
Marshall acknowledged his extreme behavior from last season when he announced he would return for his senior year, promising to hold himself to a “higher standard than people in the stands.”
Henderson also made a prediction just a few hours before Ole Miss announced his suspension.
This will be an interesting #whitegirlwednesday

UPDATE: Henderson has ended his silence through – you guessed it – twitter.
Ole Miss starting linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche, a friend of Henderson, posted a video on his Instagram account asking Henderson how he felt.
“Really sad,” Henderson responded.
And someone (Hugh Freeze and Andy Kennedy would be two good guesses) likely wasn’t too happy about it because the video was taken down shortly after it was posted. Nkemdiche denied a video was ever posted, which would be believable if it hadn’t already been seen by thousands of people.
Henderson also found time to stir up some twitter beef with Erin Andrews of Fox Sports.
