fair point that
Details are out there on the incident leading to Logan Tuley-Tillman's dismissal from the Michigan Football team. Because the article and details are found only at the Freep, and are somewhat sordid, I'm not providing a link. Suffice to say, there was significant alcohol consumption and impaired judgement by both parties involved. The article is largely factual, and not editorial in comments. Poor decisions were made, with sad consequences for all, and Tuley-Tillman being removed from the team. I hope he turns his life around and learns from this incident. I also hope this is somewhat of a teaching tool for all those currently on the team.
EDIT: Masses have spoken. Here is the article. Someone in the thread below has pasted the whole thing in.
EDIT 2: Apparently much of this information was posted already. In a thread which I missed somehow. I searched for it, but because the thread was deleted, I didn't find it.
Wasn't sure if we wanted the full title on the board, but Hatin' Ass Spurrier is back, with a dig at us and a better one for MSU.
Now Michigan State fans know what it woulda felt like to get off the UM wait list.
Edited the title. We'll go with some Yiddish.
Edit: Detroit Public Schools Emergency Manager overturns decision to forfeit PSL city title game between Cass Tech and King
Detroit Emergency Manager Darnell Earley has overturned the decision to forfeit Friday's Detroit Public Schools League City Title game.
The game had originally been canceled after a fight involving Detroit King and Cody players occured following a 20-2 King victory last Friday. Cass Tech was awarded a forfeit win.

Looks like Rivals has decided to take him off the commitment list, being the first one to do so out of the services despite no *official* word yet.
Weird recruiting story.
h/t mgouser JimmyFresh for noticing.
Michigan Monday is up at the Ozone.
I really wondered how much Gerdeman would gloat or diss Michigan. Actually, he seems to feel our pain:
A thousand different scenarios, and maybe three where Michigan doesn't leave the Big House with a win. That's why, for me, this is clearly the gutwrenchingest college football loss that I have ever seen. The good news for Michigan fans is that you'll never have to worry about something like this happening again because the mathematical probabilities just don't stretch that far.
On offense, he highlights several things:
- Failure to gain more than 100 yds rushing (like Utah).
- Only 3 completed passes actually travelled more than 20 yds in the air.
- Rudock failed to connect with Chesson on a pass that would have sealed the game.
- Rudock failed to take advantage of freshmen safeties, an opportunity that was there all game long.
Michigan played well again. Burbridge and Lewis was a fascinated duel to watch between two budding stars.
On special teams,
Very good play, but you can't discount the mistakes made on the final play. Not all of which (but much of which) falls on Blake O'Neill.
What does it all mean?
It means that Jake Rudock did enough to win the game, but he didn't actually do anything to win the game. The fact that Michigan was in a position to win this game despite being out-gained 386 to 230 and out-first downed 20 to 10 is an amazing feat. Every step of the way Jim Harbaugh had to figure out a way to overcome his lack of a running game while also hiding his lack of a passing game. This is some MacGyver-level stuff on Harbaugh's part. You wonder what he could have done had he found a paper clip or a rubber band or some hydrochloric acid in his pocket.
The future is ok this year, and great for the future.
Despite how far away this team is in terms of championship talent, they have shown the ability to put enough of their abilities together to win any game on their schedule. Unfortunately, they are just not good enough on offense to hide their weaknesses, and if the opponent sticks around long enough, those weaknesses will be exploited, as we have seen in both of Michigan's losses this season.
As always, Gerdeman's analysis is generally fair and insightful. Early in the season, Harbaugh said he didn't know what kind of team he had. Now we know. If Harbaugh can get this much out of the current team, I can only imagine what he will do when he has a team made up of guys he actually recruited.
