I've been resigned to this fate for a little bit now. It's better than the anger and spoiled days and such. Things will get better. Now it's just a matter of being patient.

thing I take a bit of issue with, is the statement about Frank sleeping in the bed he made. For the most part, I agree with that. The one thing I just can't shake in my mind, and just don't know the answer to, is how much of Frank's bed was made by the challenges he faced growing up? Yes of course, ideally he should be able to overcome that and truly make his own circumstances now. But I just don't know if that's realistic. Of course, what he did is reprehensible and has to have serious consequences. It's just that I can't really walk in his shoes to understand what his upbringing has brought to this situation.

I'm not sure Michigan failed Clark. I don't know if the school or the team gave him enough support and guidance before this happened, and it's possible they didn't. But you're saying for sure they didn't, and I certainly don't know that's true. They did give him a second chance after the laptop thing, and that's important.
I do hope the University will provide counseling resources to help him further, but I don't see how the team can let him remain on the team. There have to be some absolute bottom line rules to the privelege of being on the team, and this seems like a good one. It sounds like Hoke made it absolutely clear, repeatedly, what the expectations and demands are for being part of the team. At some point, the individual has to take responsibility and be accountable.
It sucks, truly, that Clark has had such a difficult life and upbringing. I feel a lot of sorrow for him, both for his past and for what he's going through now. I have no idea what I would do if I had faced the difficulties he's faced. And yet, he knew what the agreement was here, and he broke it. Especially given this particular issue right now, domestic violence, I just don't see how he could remain on the team. (BTW, I didn't down vote you, I think your view has some validity, but it's just a little too absolute from my perspective.)

Hope the woman is OK and that Clark gets his life in order and becomes a changed man.

So you might as well use them up.

I wasn't that impressed with his delivery of the comments at the last Regents meeting, it felt kind of stilted. But he was fantastic during the Q&A, especially, today. Well done President Schlissel!
