Two SU players will not participate in Pinstripe Bowl, Marrone says

Syracuse University head football coach Doug Marrone announced Tuesday running back Adonis Ameen-Moore and tight end Max Beaulieu will not play in the Pinstripe bowl on Dec. 29.

After a few weeks of speculating whether or not linebacker Marcus Spruill and running back Steve Rene would play in the 2012 New Era Pinstripe Bowl after being arrested in early December, Syracuse University head football coached Doug Marrone announced Tuesday that two players would not be playing against West Virginia on Dec. 29.

However, the players were not Spruill or Rene, but instead sophomore running back Adonis Ameen-Moore and junior tight end Max Beaulieu. Marrone stated the two players violated athletic department rules, but did not specify further. 

Ameen-Moore had a great season with the Orange this year, scoring 5 touchdowns on 30 carries. He was utilized in goal line formations for Syracuse, providing a bruising alternative to SU's two other running backs. Beaulieu did not play in his first two years at Syracuse, and saw little action in 2012.

The Orange face West Virginia in its second bowl game in three years at Yankee Stadium on Saturday Dec. 29 at 3:15 p.m.
