Kansas sophomore Silvio De Sousa has been suspended indefinitely following a Tuesday night brawl against Kansas State.
For those of you who might be living under a rock and not know, the Jayhawks and Wildcats got into a wild physical altercation at their end of their game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Now, at least one punishment has been handed out.

There’s so much to unpack in the Kansas K-State brawl but we should take a moment to appreciate the Jayhawk staying in character to solemnly cover his mascot eyes and look away because he can’t bear to watch pic.twitter.com/1Z4RFDI7KH

Like I said after the brawl happened, you knew suspensions were coming down the pipeline. That was a given.
You can’t have an all-out brawl and not have players get suspended. This isn’t the NHL. It’s college basketball, and the punishment for something like this is stiff.

Luckily for Kansas, De Sousa is just a role player. It’s not like they lost their star player. They should be just fine without him.
Hopefully, he learns a lesson and doesn’t repeat these actions again.
