i mean seriously he was just as good this year
I'm going to see them next week when they come to Detroit, hopefully Tyler doesn't break my arm.
He'll probably just break his...
Any way you could post up the info for their show? I'd like to make it...
They were sold out when I checked for a friend last week, but they moved the venue to the Majestic from the Magic Stick, so that opened up more I believe.

Has anyone heard when the official punishment is likely to come down?
Sounds like it already has.
another DUI he needs to be gone. period.
that being said if its anything alcohol related it needs to be seriously considered. as he seems to have trouble with the law. and we cannot satnd for that.
no one person is above the team, or the law.
I work with Judge Creal quite a bit and she is very fair and light when it comes to youths. If it turns out that Stonum has some more jail time, he must have really messed up. Sucks, I was really looking forward to Denard hitting him on beautiful PA's.
before the season, but I don't think it will happen. Sounds like the issue is pretty serious.
One strike IMHO is too much for DUI. But I understand giving everyone a second chance.
But no third strike.
We shall see how it works out.
Another reason why I regret not taking Lucien last year.
spring game... oh wait this is Ann Arbor.
He got a DUI ! Destroy him and his future! Ban Alcohol!
If it's his 2nd DUI I'd say he's doing a pretty good job of destroying his future all by his lonesome.
I was in court for one of Stonum's probation hearings this summer. Creal was pretty close to having him serve a full 10 days for his failure to work off the 10 days of community service in the 2 months she had given him to complete it. She ended up only having him sit for the weekend, but Daryln certainly didn't demonstrate much personal responsibility and for his failure to make up all 10 days (he was also 45+ minutes late in showing up - not wise). He had a public defender and nobody from the team was with him (at least non-player) which I thought was odd. I dunno if it would violate some bullshit NCAA rule, but I'd think the (old) coaching staff would at least want to make sure players already in legal trouble were fully complying with the court.
Case in point on the anti drinking judges run amok.. D'Augustini (sp).. Stonum fucked up but come on guys, he wasn't caught dealing heroin.
I personally think drinking should be allowed for younger kids, but only under the supervision of their parents. This kills cool factor a little bit, and kids might actually learn how to drink from people who are not 21 years old.
I also think a DUI comes with pretty strict penalties, too. So I think a DUI and getting kicked off the team would be too harsh, but I'm not familiar with his history. Sounds like he should be getting something pretty harsh...
2nd DUI has been confirmed. Sorry to say, that should be it for him.
Even so, I hope he can work his ass off, make amends and stay on the team, if only for his benefit.
It must have been cinco de mayo night, I saw him at charley's that nite...
That's too bad. A second DUI, plus a couple probation-related infractions, leaves Hoke in a put-up-or-shut situation. He can pull a Dantonio/Kelly and give lip-service. Or he can do the right thing. Stonum, sadly, deserves way more than some lame suspension from practice and a game or two; he should be facing, at minimum, a 5-game suspension. Frankly, he's lucky if he's still got a scholarship after this. I doubt Hoke wants to be seen as a Dantonio.
There is a thin line for Hoke to walk here. I agree with a minimum suspension. At least 5 games, and that's IF he can turn his life around/fulfill his obligations.
At the same time though, I am against dismissal. He needs his team more than ever right now. Ideally, football will keep him in school and working towards a degree. Take that away from him and he's likely just another hard luck story.
I want my team to represent the school well. And maybe Stonum has lost that privilege to represent on the field. We'll see. But part of what I want out of my school is to see that we don't abandon a young man just because he can no longer contribute to a revenue sport.
I hope he has the opportunity to graduate, and that is best done by not removing him from the team. But at the same time, I think a standard for discipline has to be set. And I think Hoke gets that.
...a second DUI will almost certainly carry some real jail time. As I read Hoke's statement giving DS a window of opportunity, I believe that DS is going to have to do some serious AA-type work after he serves whatever time he'll have to serve, and really show he has the tools to stay on the wagon. Two DUIs when you have so much to lose really indicates a real drinking problem, as other posters have pointed out.
On a lighter note, here come's our first tally in this year's Fulmer Cup!
It's his 2nd DUI, unacceptable! We're no better than MSU keeping their amatuer Kimbo Slices on the team if he is allowed to stay.
BTW what I do know is that Round 1 of Hoke vs DB begins!
Hoke is wanting another chance for him, DB says he's gone.
