It appears that MSU's Chris L. Rucker has been in jail without comment from MSU.
He is to be released this Thursday. Any bets on whether or not "The King of Discipline" (that's ESPN speak for Dantonio) counts the jail time as "suspension" or if Rucker finds himself right back on the field for Iowa?
**Also very interesting (thus the *edit*) is USA Today's report that Dantonio, after the NW game, said this about Rucker's status:
Mark Dantonio said MSU will await "the process" before deciding on Rucker.
It would be oh so nice to see a follow-up question from the locals, perhaps something like, "Coach: When you said that MSU will 'await the process' before deciding on Rucker, you must have known that he already cut a deal and was sitting in a jail cell. Do you think that lying to protect a twice-convicted criminal is appropriate behavior for a head coach?" Ok, so that will never happen, but I think this rates up there with Dantonio's prison-to-practice move for Winston.
