No other info, but it definitely sheds a little more light on the subject.
Re questions about #Michigan S Josh Furman, It was confirmed to me earlier this morning that he has indeed been suspended.
far down on the depth chart that he was never going to see any meaningful playing time.
The guy is an incredible athlete, would rather see him develop than write him off.
His blocked punt in the Nebraska game was pretty meaningful.
(as in the last Furman thread); he was the best player on our punt-coverage, and possibly the best player on our kickoff team.
I was actually happy to hear that he was suspended, if it meant that he is not leaving Michigan...
For Josh's sake, and for the team, I hope he gets himself straightened out and is back soon.
It's STUNNING to me to see "I hope he gets himself straightened out and is back soon" versus Derrick NIx and the "lol MSU never disciplines this pothead needs to be kicked off the team" crowd.
It's actually stunning to read.
You've had an account since 2009
Depth is still nice to have. Especially when you're talking about underclassmen
It all went downhill for him when he cut the dreads off.
Get your stuff together bro!!!!! Waaaay too much talent to end up at some JUCO in Maryland...
I just hope he can work his way back and learn his lesson.
Angry Michigan Safety Hating God strikes again...
I really hope he can pull through this as he was a kid whos future I was highly excited about w/ coaching from a competent secondary coaching staff.
Will be interesting to find out why he was suspended. Probably wasn't going to see the field anyway, but I always wonder how kids get suspended.
Maybe by doing dumb shit? Wonder no more, and you're welcome.
It's always some Violation of team rules.
I hate these situations. I wish the best for the kid whatever the problem and hopefully he can get back on the field. On a positive (recruiting) note, will this create a need for 2 safeties in the class if the suspension becomes permanent? Calling Mr. Cravens.
I think he would have made a contribution in some sort for the upcoming football season. I hope he makes he way back. Better to have too many capable players, than to have not enough.
I remember a tweet by a current player about a month ago.."S/O (Shout out for you geezers) to Josh Furman for doing the right thing" ...I have faith in Josh to get things back on the right track..just hit a bump in the road. Go Josh Go Blue
Thanks. (TKU4UK for you texters).
In danger. Josh Furman's absence from practice has been attributed to "administrative" issues that aren't academic, and this gives off a whiff of doghouse:
When asked how safety Josh Furman has been doing during camp, Mattison reversed course and said Michigan head coach Brady Hoke would have to answer that.
Dollars to donuts Furman's got a strike or two to his name. Being held out of spring practice is not a good sign. Meanwhile, Marvin Robinson will plead to a lesser charge in his having-a-"concussion"-that-held-him-out-of-eight-games case. He's practicing, so extrapolate Furman's situation from that.
Take from it what you will.
Yep, I read that - and now it's confirmed that he's suspended.
I'm sad to hear about this I thought he was going to be a maneater at Michigan. As a local DC kid it particularly stings.
As read on Sam's board, there was a Joshua R. Furman arrested in Feb. for some rather unsavory things. If it is true, I hope it is only a suspension as they go through the legal process.
MODS, please delete if inappropirate.
I wouldn't post this if it wasn't public record, but 15 District Court records are online.
You can look it up here: https://secure.courts.michigan.gov/jis/?court=ANNARBOR
should be left to the public to find. Finding it for them makes it all too easy for people to turn it into the outrage du jour.
Michigan safety Josh Furman is suspended by the football team due to his Washtenaw County 15th District Court case focused on three counts: domestic violence, assault and breaking and entering/illegal entry.
Damn. The hell was he thinking?
OH HELL NO SHE DIDN'T !!
WORLD OF DIFFERENCE now in the problems we face for laughing at Nix for getting caught with pot when now we have to worry about ANOTHER football player getting a breaking/entering and domestic assault charge.
It`s been tough sledding for Josh, i was kind of hoping this year he would find a home in the 2 deep.
