Our investigative journalism department is hard at work bringing you the latest updates in the whereabouts of phenomenally talented possible-Illinois-transfer-but-also-possible-guy-that-got-reinstated-at-Miami WR Jeff Thomas.
Less than an hour ago, the I-Team received this tip:
Per his Instagram, it looks like Jeff Thomas is sitting in a classroom wearing his East St. Louis letterman jacket.. #illini pic.twitter.com/hvcwiumPuj— Illini Expert (@IlliniExpert) January 14, 2019
This led us straight to the Zapruder film of this saga: a selfie video of Thomas in a classroom.
BUT WHAT CLASSROOM?
Stephen Cohn: The chair doesn’t look familiar at all. That desk is in a lot of classrooms.
Orri Benatar: Miami started classes today also...Is it the classic wood color attached to the chair?
Cohn: No it’s like the 2 person long desks, and then it’d have a rolling chair.
Benatar: But he is wearing a sweatshirt...Something most don’t wear in Miami. So by weather standards, he’s at Illinois.
Michael Berns: Sweatshirts are definitely wearable in 60F weather
Matt O’Neall: Letterman jackets tho
Raul Rodriguez: It was 65 this morning in Miami. It is currently 78 but the classrooms might be cold regardless of the weather.
Cohn: Do we think he still brings his high school letterman jacket to Miami? I’d say no.
Thumpasaurus: I’d argue that he would; this behavior would fit the profile we’ve been building. There is at this point no forensic evidence to rule out him being in Champaign; the only evidence we have thus far (Jeff Thomas is currently in a classroom, and might be chilly) points to him being there.
We’ll have more as this story develops.
