"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
I find it interesting that the A2.com refers to Cissoko as a "former player" (DetNews.com says the same):
and in a earlier article refers to Charles Woodson as an "ex-Michigan football star":
Maybe i'm nit picking, but it seems that those references should be reversed. "Ex" sounds like you left on bad terms, former sounds like you used to play there and moved on to bigger and better things.
I go with the U.S. Marines theory, once a Marine, always a Marine. The only Marines i've seen referred to as ex-Marines are those dishonorably discharged.
In MGo.Licio.us, Brian linked to an article detailing yet another arrest for former CB Boubacar Cissoko, and some previous robberies they linked him to. Contained in the sad, sad commentary on what should have been a successful athlete's life, was the following tidbit.
"Police say they were able to link Cissoko to two thefts March 13 from food deliverymen in less than a 90-minute span. Investigators say Cissoko snatched money from the hand of a deliveryman for Mr. Spot's about 12:11 a.m. in the 600 block of Mary Court. The deliveryman was dropping off an order of Philly cheese steaks. Cissoko also is accused of grabbing money from the hand of a deliveryman for Cottage Inn about 1:37 a.m. in the 900 block of Greenwood Avenue, which is in the same area. That deliveryman was dropping off pizza."
It is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL that we know that the delivery men were delivery philly cheesesteaks and pizzas when they were robbed. Essential.
Seriously, was the writer hungry or something?
looks pretty definitive now that any shot Boubacar had at rejoining the team is gone
Apparently the Detroit News thinks that Boubacar has a shot at returning to the team, and Rodriguez left the door open for a possible return.
Cissoko can still develop into a decent to good corner, and if nothing else, could provide us with some experience going into next year
FYI Before tonight's game the UM football radio broadcast reported that Boubacar Cissoko was suspended for violation of team rules and didn't travel w/the team.
