landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
You can find the full statement at the link below
($). Here's an excerpt from the seemingly very sincere apology. Best of luck to him in the future.
Although I looked forward to finishing my college football career playing against South Carolina in the Outback Bowl, I fully understand the decision Coach Hoke had to make by suspending me from the bowl game. I have called Ann Arbor my home for the last five years, and I can honestly say that everyone here will remain an integral part of my family.
EDIT: Turns out it's not paywalled after all, thanks dnak438.
Nice to see that one of the lower rated commits in this class has the athletic ability to do this:
Just noticed on TTB that we have offered a DB from Virginia named Chris Holmes. He is an NC State commit with meh offers and a consensus low three star (Max 2 star on 247). Looks a lot better than that on the film below - maybe he blew up in his senior year and was overlooked. So far staying with his commitment until he meets their new staff, but if he decommits we are in a good position.
I know that Mr. Mealer and his beard have a lot of fans on the site and that the Mealer family story has held our interest for these past many years. This picture from today's Record Update is inspiring on many levels, and I thought some may enjoy it. Congratulations, Elliott.
So if you haven't been watching the Lions play, and you're in need of some comedy, turn them on. A quick summary of events. After leading 7-0, the Lions forced a 3 and out.....except Logan muffed the punt, and the Cardinals scored on the next play.
After trading 3 and outs again, the Cardinals punt it away, and Logan screws up the return, and puts the Lions on the 7 yard line. After back to back false starts by different players, Stafford throws deep to a double covered Calvin....except he overthrows him and it's picked off by Patrick Petersen, who returns it to the 3 yard line. The Cardinals score again.
So yeah, let's all laugh at the Lions and watch some NFL games. Betters than the news about Treadwell and Floyd, Hagerup, Hawthorne anyways
