According to Triple G Gregg Henson early this morning:
High profile coach led out of the football building, big time player led off MSU campus in handcuffs.— M Lord Gregg Hens⭕️n (@GreggHenson) February 10, 2017
And reported on the radio minutes ago by Ryan Schuiling:
So listening to @RyanSchuiling show and he just mentioned a staffer/coach was arrested during a morning meeting, fairly public manner. Ugh.— SpartanWire (@SpartanWire) February 10, 2017
ugly times in EL.
[Ed-Ace: Locked the thread. The OP is fine. The allegations that led to this arrest (sexual assault) are not a joking matter, however, and much of what was in the comments crossed that line. This is not rivalry trolling material. The basketball team gave you all more than enough of that on Tuesday.]
Nice piece in the Detroit News from John U. Bacon regarding Tom Brady's beginnings at Michigan. Some nice anecdotes baked into a story we know but don't mind rehearing.
A tidbit (but go read the whole thing):
He lived in an apartment building with a single washer and dryer in the basement. When another student had left a load of laundry in the dryer too long, and went down to get it, he expected to see his clothes in a pile. Instead, he saw Tom Brady standing at the dryer folding his T-shirts, and leaving them in a neat stack. An entitled jock, he was not.
[EDIT - Based on the initial comments, I'm SAF not going to change the title.]
Looks like a pretty good athlete. Played QB and Safety at De La Salle. Highlights:
This post is largely just for the record, it being now 5+ weeks after the fact, but the final 2016 post-bowl season FPI team efficiency ratings did actually get posted at some point a while back. The results end up with Michigan having held steady at #3 despite losing in the Orange Bowl. On the bright side, that's one spot better than the National Champion Clemson Tigers.
The U-M splits did move a bit. They are offense, #17 (down from #12); defense, #3 (same a prior rating); and special teams, #3 (up from #8 based on another season of quality punting!). Despite getting throttled by
'Bama Clemson in the CFP, OSU somewhat surprisingly finished with the #2 defense, while sliding to #6 overall.
Of U-M's other 2016 opponents, FSU climbed to #8 from #11, Colorado slipped to #17 from #12, and Wisconsin slid to #11 from #10. UCF remains rated above 5 of Michigan's other opponents this season, getting edged out by one spot by Sparty apparently due to second-order effects of the ratings formulae. Sparty holds on to #72 and retains the title of Third Best Team in the State of Michigan. Meanwhile Western Michigan finishes up at #16 from #17, and at this point it appears that the captain of the rowboat has run aground and issued the "abandon ship" order. Meanwhile, Hawai'i edged out Illinois to finish at #100.

So there you have it. Stick it in a shoe box and shove it under the bed. It's done and time to move on.
