JaQuan Lyle has been sidelined the past two games for New Mexico as he nurses a knee injury, but that didn't stop him from having an extremely eventful weekend (that will cause him to miss the next two games as well).

According to reports, it seems Lyle threw an absolute rager of a party at an Airbnb the night of/morning after his team's 22-point road loss to Nevada. Attendees included athletes from various New Mexico sports, including the football team and the men's basketball team (who caught a plane back in time for the festivities).

Somehow, it seemed like a good idea. It was not.

Lyle has since been suspended two games for "conduct detrimental to the team," which presumably translates to "hosting a party at which a shooting occurred."

As nuts as this story is, perhaps the most shocking news to me was that Lyle is actually still in college, and what a rollercoaster of a college career it's been, with his saga stretching across four schools over the course of almost seven years.
