Per UM: Graham Glasgow has been suspended for a portion of spring football, will miss season opener for a violation of "team expectations"— angelique (@chengelis) March 20, 2014
EDIT: Also being reported by ESPN.
If it said "family matter" I'd really be worried.
Man, don't give anyone around here any ideas.
Our OL just cannot catch a break, self inflicted or otherwise.
That's just great.
I don't know if I've heard the term "team expectations" before. Weird.
Any more news with the Alabama guy?
By failing to meet team expectations, I think it means that Glasgow was playing too well.
All of the welp.
On the plus side, at least our season opener isn't against Alabama this year.
Patrick Kugler, come on down!
It's Appalachian State. Should we start to panic now?
must've knocked off early and started tailgating for the hoops game already ...
Chad Lindsay, come on up!
Good lord can we catch a break?
All the more reason we need that transfer from Alabama.
Word on the street is that he's being deported to South Africa.
Any word on that? To me, a guy who was with Nuss for a few years at Bama, even if only as a back-up, is probably good enough to walk in and start.
So what happend with that Alabama oline transfer?
I've never seen a position in a such a constant state of misery like our OL.
You have a short memory.
There was this thing called the Michigan defensive backfield not too long ago...
Or the 2008 QB shuffle.
Yeah but I never actually watched them. I just shut my eyes and expected the worst.
You're getting all the up votes today! One would think we have a Magnus POSbang appreciation Muppets thread.
It's tournament time! Everyone's happy!
Defensive backfield, 2010 season?
We made walk on QBs look like the offspring of Joe Montana and Tom Brady.
2009 and 2010 kicking wasn't a steller position either
I mean that position is so bad AIRBHG is widely accepted acronym.
AIRBHG was originally known as AMSHG. Then they changed the name and it took off.
What a complete disaster turd of a clusterfuck.....
I had to look at the schedule to see which game he will miss and immediately want to slit my wrist (not literally of course).
App St? What are you worried about. Hope he is ready for ND.
Should my Sarcasm meter be on? I mean, after the first App State game, and after Brian's great frustration with DB rescheduling Appy State, I have that sense of doom and foreboding welling up inside of me. What am I worried about? That we could lose to Appy State again, bringing the apocalypse to Michigan. Never, never, never look past a game. This is one thing I have learned.
I am thrilled that we scheduled App State. For one, you cannot let them have the better of us in the record books. Revenge is necessary, Two, we are. Michigan. We are not scared to play App State. Any day, any year. Third, in this particular year with the background story (coming off a poor season, opening against our most embarrassing loss) I don't think there is a way we don't focus entirely on the task and have a productive few weeks leading up to the game. Then smash them. I think it'll ultimately be good for our development, momentum, and help enforce the 'one game at a time' mantra that you absolutely need to have.
+1 for optimism.
Et tu, 2014?
If i'm not mistaking, ol' Brian Griese was suspended at one point during his college career, and he turned out alright
Yep. Put his hand through a giant glass window after the bar owner wouldn't let him in. Good stuff.
Perhaps the only thing dumber than putting your hand through a glass window is going up a parking structure when you're trying to run away. Unless you're Jason Bourne.
By "Skeeps" you are kindly giving the board a time shift translation of "Dooleys". And by "on line" you are referring to standing in front of Dooleys, as opposed to using the internet which was not available other than at a desk with a big fat CRT monitor and, if you were lucky, a T1 connection. To all you whippersnappers out there, that's kind of amazing.
...and later Rose Bowl MVP of an undefeated national champion.
Pancaked Glasgow at a camp last year. His legs got crossed a bit so it was lucky but we like to ignore that when we watch the video over and over again.
that's comforting to hear.
p.s. when is your son eligible?
Come on guys. He's a young man. Is everyone here a perfect role model? No. Stop judging the guy and just let it be. You can't fix it. There's tons of talent there be positive and someone will step up.
MLive had part of Hoke's statement, if anyone is interested. It doesn't give much insight, of course, but there is something on record out there all the same - LINK
"Each of our young men understands the standard we expect of them," Hoke said in a written statement. "It's one that represents this great program and university, as well as their family and teammates. When their actions don't reflect that standard, it's very disappointing, and we must hold them accountable for their decision while helping them learn a valuable life lesson."
Is that a FERPA violation?
Hoke Vague? How could that be?
panic and run around screamin' yet?
Is that a Bonnie in your avatar?
Not allowed unfortunately. Hey, a guy's gotta relax a little.
Can't hear you. Still basketball season.
I have been pining for some football news, guess I asked for it
Sure wish Bo was still coaching, I suspect there would be a little less monkey business going on.
I suspect there is significantly less monkey business going on than at a lot of other schools. It's just that the monkey business on this team actually gets punished.
Punishment isn't letting a DUI go with a 1 game suspension. I suppose it's all relative, but I'd like to think we are above the moral baseline.
It's a completely different era.
Bo would have the same struggles with todays student-athlete.
Nick Saban does, Urban Meyer does, Mark Dantonio does, every coach in college football does. Bo would be no different.
On the flip side, Hoke would get to benefit from the 60s/70s/80s student-athlete and not the pesonalities of today.
This could really open the door for Kugler to steal the starting spot depending on the details of the suspension in terms of length and level of participation.
because it is wonderful to have a redshirt Freshman playing interior line - much less the center
Who cares, we're a basketball school anyway...
Thank god we have a damn good basketball team to take our minds off of this. With this football team it seems like it's one shitstorm after another.
Glasgow? Are you sure they said Glasgow? Guy seems like nothing but good.
I have placed a personal moratorium on caring about the football program until its coaching staff and adminstration demonstrate that they are competent. So to this I say, Oh well!
Logical choice by you.
I've also put a personal moratorium on caring about personal shots from anonymous internet folks.
Moratorium doesn't include statements made by you?
So how many years of approved performance by you will Hoke and DB need to have before they win your affections back? I'm assuming of course they had them the first year and lost them last year. I get it sometimes I make too fast judgements too.
Wow. Chill man. I am not your enemy.
Just pointing out something important in my opinion.
Someone is going crazy with the down votes this thread
It seemed like the kind of thing that we'd want to discuss.
Is they don't suspend him from Practice*. Agree the ultimate goal is to play in the games, but he can still go learn and grow. Glad its an "internal" thing almost nobody knows about rather than a public "law enforcement" type issue.
* and if they did, I bet they don't suspend him from "Workouts" such as go run 100 laps around the field while thinking of your transgressions and watching your fellow players practice, etc...
But he will miss out on 3-4 weeks of practice reps as the "starter" in a new offensive scheme.
A day will come when news regardig the offensive line will be good. I am anxiously awaiting that day.
hate to see any kind of suspension but atleast i hope this means patrick kugler will be given a chance to start. if he's our center of the future id rather the future start sooner then later.
I'd rather it start when it's ready and not forced.
There is no reason to fear Appalachian State. We have never lost to them twice in a row.
Don't tempt the football gods, please. We had no reason to fear them in 2007 when we opened the season ranked top five. Gack. Hexes on you, even though I know you're joking.
It was an elaborate anti-Michigan media hoax, perpetrated with CGI and a massive disinformation campaign.
Anyone presenting any kind of "evidence" or "eyewitness testimony" to the contrary is just part of the cover-up.
I was really wondering if we would be better off with Kugler anyway.
If the kid is ready this will be his shot to take over at center. Kugler came in with some pretty strong hype was this will be interesting.
Glasgow must not have executed very well.
