Fitz Gets DUI, Suspended. Frank Clark Suspended as well.

Obviously the Penn State saga gets top billing in the sports world today, and we will address that soon. I am typing this from the northern wilds of Michigan where I have been and will be for the next few days.

In my absence, content still flows thanks to @dwinslow09 who posted his weekly recruiting rundown this morning.

Fitz after the spring game being interviewed by WTKA's Sam Webb.
Via Mgoblog, via somewhere else:
The Saline Police Department arrested University of Michigan starting running back Fitzgerald Toussaint in Ann Arbor Saturday night on charges of operating a vehicle while impaired, according to Detective Don Lupi.

Saline Police arrested Toussaint at approximately 11:45 p.m. while working in downtown Ann Arbor on drunk driving detail, Lupi said.
Brady Hoke on Fitz's arrest:
"Fitz made a poor decision and has been suspended indefinitely because of that action," Hoke said. "There are expectations that come with being a football student-athlete at the University of Michigan and those responsibilities were not met in this instance. We will use this as an opportunity to educate Fitz and make sure he understands the high standards that we have established within our program."
Translation: Don't expect to see Fitz in Dallas on September 1st. That would be a huge loss for the offense. Details are still forthcoming so we'll see how this plays out.

UPDATE: Frank Clark was accused of allegedly breaking the law as well. He supposedly stole a MacBook Air from a residence hall. Wonderful! He is suspended indefinitely.

  1. Darn it if we can't keep a straight program. Brady Hoke should run these two up the flagpole and display some grit.
