Via twitter from Sam Webb:
Have confirmed that #Michigan players JT Floyd, Will Hagerup, and Brandon Hawthorne have indeed been suspended
Violation of team rules, according to official Michigan Football Twitter account.
You mean an "oops-oops"?
Make them run until they puke. Then, make them run some more.
Drug use or poor grades. They are purposefully vague to protect the players. That is a good thing.
speculation adds nothing to the reality.
Last time Hagerup was suspended, it was because of weed. We saw Fitz get suspended because of a crime. Is it really that hard to believe that Hagerup was caught with the other two, doing the same thing that got him suspended before? Or that a suspension was because of another crime, as the past would indicate? I understand your anger if it was baseless speculation, but it clearly isn't.
It is awesome that you can gauge my emotions from a simple one line internet post. Do you think you can teach me these divine powers you possess?
Oh wait... I believe you are speculating, because you know nothing about the actuality of my emotional state. Anger is not reflected anywhere in my post, possibly because I am not angry. But thanks for demonstrating your remarkable and unique skill!
Really trying to tell me that you're not angry?
Not angry, but I am tired. And you might want to get your sarcasm meter checked out too.
I bet you're oodles of fun in person.
YOU better settle down! So much anger!
It's good to protect the players so let's baselessly speculate as to what they did.
They don't come in and get finalized till next week.
i heard from a player they all failed drug test
Fascist control on the Appy State Weed story (like they usually do, of course). Let the story out and maybe a light bulb goes on in a few of our players heads. When you smoke that shit as an athlete, IT AFFECTS YOU!!! NEGATIVELY!!!
I have a couple of roommates that turn into mindless vegetables every night after they smoke that shit. But when you try to point out that its a waste of their time and numbing them from dealing and improving in their lives... its like you slapped them accross the face in public.
Its not easy to talk someone out of being a pot head.
I agree that it is genrally negative for an athlete to use marijuana. But your argument is short sighted. Not everyone who uses marijuana turns into a mindless vegetable. Some people use it thereputically, or for creative purposes. And some people prefer it to alcohol use, and I don't see you rallying against that. Either way we don't know what they were suspended for so we can't just assume it was marijuana.
Every 7 or 8 times out of 10 you hear "violation of team rules" in college sports it's a failed drug test. Mainly because if they break the law, you get a police report. If it's cheating or something with class, it becomes a university issue. If it's being late to practice, the coach makes an example out of the player and tells the media the player was late to practice (and typically that's a lost starting job, not an entire game).
Plus, when you see Hagerup mentioned, it's a fair assumption that it was smoking weed.
J.T. Floyd, Brandin Hawthorne & Will Hagerup have been suspended for the Outback Bowl for a violation of team rules.
J.T. Floyd, Brandin Hawthorne & Will Hagerup have been suspended for the Outback Bowl for not respecting the 5 hookers that Craig James allegedly killed while attending SMU
I am, however, pleased that our coaches have integrity.
is what it's all about
Not entirely what it's all about but certainly separates us from many other programs.
Frustrating but not the end of the world. I doubt we'll ever learn what they did.
So close to the bowl...have to stay strong as a player. I am assuming the suspension means that if the players do what they are told they have a chance to come back to the team (except those graduating)?
In the case of Hagerup and Hawthorne, I hope so. There was a rumor floating around that the three had been kicked off the team. I hope it's just that, a rumor.
that's now at least 2 instances that we know of for hagerup. dump him. use these 7 schollies left to recruit another guy this year. at least we still have wile who is solid, imo.
I'm about done with Hagerup too, but I do trust these coaches. If they decide it's time to move on, I'm 100% with them though. If another chance is in the cards, then fine, but it should be his last life.
the next time Will shanks one?
for two bowl games and even worse, the game. He obviously has not learned his lesson. However good a punter he is, I think he should be permanently kicked off the team with Stonum as the precedent.
He has let his team mates down for three crucial games ...
For Floyd and Hawthrone, this is it because they graduate. And given that this is Hagerup's second run in with the "ol' violation of team rules" this might be it for him too.
I think this is more than two run-ins for our mortified punter friend
I could only remember the other one off the top of my head, but there certainly could be more.
Yeah, this is the third. OSU game in '10, first four games in '11, now this.
Sorry to say, this should be it for him.
Three strikes (that we know of) and you should be out.
You're pic made me literally LOL in McDonalds. Bearded Jack, ftw. Well done sir.
you just said "you are pic", right?
THAT made me LOL. Well done, sir.
Apologies. My attention to grammar fades when I am eyebrow deep in McDoubles and fries.
Beyond loving the show, I'm keeping this avatar with Bearded Jack until we win a Big 10 title. Hopefully, I can change it to Happy Jack sometime in the next season or two.
the first four weeks as a sophomore, and now this. Three strikes and you're done. It's time to move on, but we"ll always have the mortified punter gif.
Hagerup's 2nd strike (that we know of)
likley has had many strikes/chances
he may be offered the opportunity to complete his education without a michgan football schoalrship
2nd strike under Brady Hoke. Remember he missed the OSU game in 2010 with RR
Hagerup sure manages to get himself into a lot of trouble
