"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
In today's Chicago Tribune, there's an article wherein Brian Kelly is quoted as saying that, if Floyd continues on the track he's on, he doesn't think Floyd will miss any games.
Not to beat a dead horse, but doesn't this seem a tad...lenient? And although I'm sure Brady Hoke doesn't look to other programs for guidance on how to discipline his players, what would the MGoCommunity think if Hoke came out and said something like this about Stonum? Just curious, as it seems from the prior posts I've read that a lot of folks on here would be disappointed in Hoke if Stonum isn't suspended.
I searched the board but didn't find this posted. Apologies if this article was posted already, but it seems unlikely, as it came out today.
An interesting read from Michael Spath over at TheWolverine.com. His supposition is that Stonum should either be kicked off the team or suspended for an entire year. I don't want to delve too much into someone personal demons, but I thought that this warrented some thought from the MGoCommunity.
I especially liked the following quote:
"There are all sorts of way to teach a lesson and maybe no right or wrong answer. Hoke is an upstanding guy and I do not for one second question his moral integrity - like I didn’t with Carr. He will make a decision and maybe it will be even stricter than the one proposed here but I would make Stonum’s path to becoming a Michigan Man the most difficult one (he) has ever faced because only then will he understand the risk he took with his life and with those that share the road with him.
Only then will he understand the gravity of what he did and only then will he be faced with the opportunity to grow from his poor choice, put the past in the past, and take a step towards becoming the man that will benefit society in the future instead of selfishly putting it in harm’s way yet again."

DAYS UNTIL DARRYL STONUM TAKES ANOTHER ONE TO THE HOUSE!
Dear Press Conference Sound Guy, I hate you.
I just wanted to share the video of Floyd Simmons' epic block on Stonum's kick return (the one with the lateral). It's in annoyingly slow motion and has some obnoxious ringing in the background, but it still looks really cool. Watching it in the stadium today, I totally forgot the play and just kept watching Simmons celebrate the huge hit.
He's wearing a black tie with a Michigan polo shirt, and has a piece of white tape on the bridge of his Clark Kent glasses.
