He'll definitely be on it. I've been following him via their box scores.

He starts and has a scored a TD on D.

They lost the first game cause everyone was suspended. Completely shit the bed. Now they're blowing everyone out including beating the team they got in a fight with last year something like 70-7

Could have been on thin ice with the previous coaching regime.

Or, which is possible as I used to work with troubled tennagers/adults for a number of years, he might not have had the right "attitude" about making mistakes. If I recall he was either finished the year as 5-star recruit, or at some point was a 5-star during his senior season.

Kids with amazing abilities(be it athletic, academic, or artistic) who have discipline/transgression issues can be incredibly stubborn and unwilling to change (either arrogance from their own immense talent or fear of "losing it").

But whenever they decided to make a change (sadly some never do), look out, because they do have something special to give to the world.

Dorial Green-Beckham is a great example, and Cam Newton to a lesser degree.

Wish him the best.

They recruit home run hitters at wide receiver, then look to find guys to fill the possession role via grad transfers or juco guys. It's a great gig if you are the one guy they take. Good luck to Cole.

I don't want to mention any names, but the alleged reason Cole was kicked off has been speculated to be the same reason why MSU lost a couple of important d lineman. It's obviously hurting them a lot more than Cole's departure hurts U of M, which brings me great joy, but glad to see Cole doing well and wish him continued success in the future

Hey man, sorry about that. Didn't mean to cause you any grief. I took for granted that it was well known on this board for awhile now what the issue was with Cole, it was even reeferred to within the first 5 posts of this thread. I worded it that way because you're right, I don't know why X happened, I wasn't sitting in Harbaugh's or Dantonio's office when the players were dismissed. I'm just going off of and repeating the conjecture and speculation created by Internet message board posters, which we always know to be credible and factual sources of information. The point I tried to get across was that a similar situation happened to MSU and it totally destroyed their d line depth, and that makes me happy :)

I wish we had a good window on what exactly happened with Cole. I'm not talking about rumors, I'm talking about the actual extent and the frequency. It stinks that a in-state kid might go somewhere else and produce. I'd just like to know how much the kid fucked up. I guess it doesn't matter if Harbaugh keeps winning games though. He's  kept us on the right by abiding by the  good citizen rule.

I'm a firm believer in second chances. Whatever mistakes he made here shouldn't dog him forever, so if he's good enough for Alabama, they'll get one hell of a WR, and he'll have a chance to play for a premier program. Good luck to him.

A lot of young adults, like 18 and 19 year olds make very poor choices. A lot of the time it's just part of growing up. We've seen a lot of young players at Michigan get into trouble, but still pull themselves out of it and eventually flourish. Unfortunately, Brian Cole wasn't able to do it while at Michigan. Hopefully, he will elsewhere.

Brian Cole and Amir Mitchell both got dismissed for the same thing marijuana. We should have gave them both a second chance it's not like it's cocaine or ecstasy or something like that it's only marijuana no big deal. Suspend them for four games that's what OSU and Michigan State does. I understand it's Michigan and we hold our students and athletes to higher standards but it's only marijuana man. Everybody smokes pot in college occasionally.
