Does anyone know if he is still in school, and despite all his troubles, what would it take for him to rejoin the team? I personally would like to see a year on the practice squad working his butt off. Also I would like to see him attend regular study hall sessions and to volunteer time with various community groups around Ann Arbor. Of course all this would be predicated on attending a substance abuse clinic.
after the rumor hit that he might be able to work his way back onto the team he had another run-in w/ the law. so now the door is shut. or as his high school coach put it "bolted shut on both sides."
I don't have the link, but he admitted to possessing marijuana w/ the intent to distribute recently...Like you, I wish the kid the best, but his days on the team are over.
Puff, puff, pass. Sounds like the ship has sailed on Boo after a January arrest for possession of the sticky icky.
I have no answers to your questions, but he has to be done at this point. He's had too many issues since getting kicked off the team. And now they have a ton of DB's in this recruiting class and probably are counting on his scholarship anyway.
At BEST I could see them letting him back on the team as a walk-on. If he busts his tail and stays out of trouble maybe they could let him on the field. But I think he's blown his chances at this point unfortunately.
do you really think CISSOKO wants to "work his butt off" for a year on the practice squad after he was basically a starter during fall camp last year? Would you want to do that?
Let me think about that for a sec... YES
Of course I would want to do that. I'm sure that at this point Cissoko realizes that he had an incredible opportunity to obtain a fantastic education and life experience as a scholarship player on the University of Michigan football team. He made some horrible mistakes that ripped that opportunity away from him. I feel bad for the guy and hope he grows up and works his way back to a promising position at another university.

And I want to ride a unicorn to candy land and never worry about grading for a freshmen course again.
Care to guess which is more likely?
Wish to never have to make another mortgage payment again, ever.
Never, ever go to Ypsilanti.
Parts of Ypsi are pretty scary. And not much good happens there. That's what I've learned in my admittedly limited experience there.
I don't have any hard data to back up this claim, but when I was in school I remember that a majority of the violent crimes in Ann Arbor were carried out by Ypsi residents. Literally, most of them.
Well you can be a sarcastic smart-ass all you want, but if you think Ypsi is a decent area then you're clearly lying to yourself.
So, we have a guy who lives in Kansas telling someone who lives in Ypsilanti that he's ill-informed about the city? Um, okay.
Yeah and up until 24 months ago I lived in its neighboring city for a duration of 5 years. I'm sure the town has experienced a cultural renaissance since then.
Fine, you lived nearby. But you are arguing with someone who actually lives in the city.
Anyway, as an A2 resident myself, I think the tales of "dangerous Ypsi" are greatly exaggerated. Most of it is fine. There are a few areas that are a little sketchy, but I wouldn't really call them unsafe. People move from Detroit to Ypsi to get away from the 'hood.
Yes, someone who's in denial about living in a slum.
This whole debate is pretty pointless but when I was an Ann Arbor resident I would get extremely angry reading about the shootings, rapes, muggings occuring in Ann Arbor, most of which were instigated by Ypsilanti residents. Though these incidents were relatively uncommon for a city of Ann Arbor's size, it's pretty undeniable that Ypsi's criminals would prey on the wealth and naiveness of Ann Arbor's residents and Michigan's student body.
generates more than -25 MGoPoints. It's like stimulus cash, in reverse.
I don't care what you say, I won't stay, in a world without Ypsilanti-sarcasm.
Sorry, I'm from Metro Detroit.
Should I interpret that as a forfeit?
I have never had a problem in Ypsi at all, but it is far more dangerous than Ann Arbor, relatively speaking. Again, I'm not knocking Ypsi at all, but there is quite a bit more crime.
I was just trying to be objective about it. I've never had a problem there, Detroit is another story though...
on returning to the football team, but let's hope he stays in school and gets his life back in order.
There was also some rumors he was heading to GVSU to play football.
IIRC that door was closed by his latest run-in with the law as well.
MSU. The captain of multiple chances/shady character (Dantonio) says he's "just what Michigan State is looking for." Translation: Another gangsta loser.
I don't know about you, but I try to be supportive of Michigan players regardless of the way their careers end.
Michigan State and Dantonio. Cissoko was certainly not the intended receiver of wrath.
Is he really enrolling at MSU? That's pretty funny; apparently MSU is content with taking UM's rejects both academically and athletically.
This is complete and utter hearsay, but I know a guy who went to Cass Tech with Boubacar and he said that Booboo is going to transfer to Missouri State. No idea why he would choose Missouri State, or if what he told me was even true, but I think it's safe to say he's done at U of M either way
get so politically correct? I made an "off" attempt at a satirical parody but to lose 40 points. Are you kidding me? I have read the word FUCK on here as common as the name Rich Rod. Ding me some points, I am okay with that but Jesus...let's not get militant.
Fuck figgedy fuck fuck fuck.
Some people weren't cut out for the big time, but hopefully he can get it together and make it somewhere.
I'm not sure what parts of Ypsi you guys have been to but that place is gangster... they sell ribs on the street. You dont even see that type of shit in Detroit.
If you dont think Ypsi is gangster then go hang out in the deja vu parking lot one night and see how long it takes you to get shanked.
There is a reason that no one from AA goes there. When you were in school did you ever hear of anyone "just going to Ypsi for the night" that wasnt going to the strip club?
