The news about Syracuse's decision to bench seven-footer Fab Melo due to academic issues is the topic of much conversation as we head into the (real) Big Dance. No offense to the opening round/play-in games, but the real action starts tomorrow, and the buzz around Syracuse has taken a hit because of Melo's suspension.

The experts have already offered their opinion on how the lack of Fab Melo to anchor the Orange's 2-3 zone will impact Syracuse's tournament chances, but the chatter surrounding Melo did not end after the experts tweeted.

The fans continue to weigh in on Melo's suspension, and let's just say, if Twitter could shape the future of upcoming sporting events, I'm not sure Syracuse would make it out of the first round:

After much deliberation, I have to Drop Syracuse as 1 of My Final 4 Picks because of the loss of Fab Melo. #Syracuse #FabMelo #MarchMadness(image) 29 minutes ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Southern Miss coach Larry Eustachy on Fab Melo: "I don't know who he is. I don't watch college basketball. I watch Law & Order.'' Unreal. MW(image) 48 minutes ago via HootSuite ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Considering Eustachy is also a college basketball coach, and could potentially face Syracuse in the second third round of the tournament, his comment is disingenuous at best and an outright lie at the worst.

Does that mean you have them losing earlier now?

I'll just leave that there. Do with it what you will.

Fab Melo is ineligible for failing some classes. This wouldnt happen at Kentucky, they never attend classes to fail them in the first place.(image) 17 hours ago via Echofon ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Twitter is perhaps the best conduit ever for haters of all shapes and sizes, even those who try to blame John Calipari for everything. Another example of Twitter hating:

Fab Melo's tourney intelligibility is undoubtedly the best news I've heard this month #LaterCuse(image) 12 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

"Orange Center Fab Melo" sounds like a failed Appleby's dessert(image) 15 hours ago via UberSocial for BlackBerry ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

While it may sound like an Applebee's menu failure, the truth is, it's a failure on Fab Melo's part. I mean, is it really that hard to maintain a "C" average, especially when you're enrolled in Syracuse's College of Arts and Sciences? Perhaps that drug policy does need to be revisited.

What about you? How does the news of Melo's suspension alter your picks?
