Yes sir. I sat reading Magnus' response thinking the same as you, but telling myself don't reply, don't reply.

We have 3 young men on M suspended and missing the bowl game, two of them, their last college game, and Magnus is concerned with convoluting their misfortune to his questionable opinion of a 3 year starting corner.

Ace, from 16 months ago:

Michigan bolstered their special teams depth and added a scholarship-level punter on the cheap yesterday when Fenton (MI) punter Kenny Allen agreed to join the team in 2012 as a preferred walk-on. Allen should provide quality insurance in case Will Hagerup gets the proverbial third strike and could easily be a multi-year starter once (well, I guess if) Hagerup graduates.

If Will does get the boot (ha!), I think we'll see Allen at punter in 2013 and M taking a scholarship guy in the 2014 class.

Oh, look at that. Thugs on Michigan's football team. Who would of thought? This can't be right, this is Michigan!!!!...these things don't happen here. The suffocating smell of arrogance is disgusting as usual. I'm sure the disciplinarian that hoke is will teach these boys a lesson!!! I mean he has convicted felons on his team right now.

Everyone on here is applauding the disciplinary actions by the staff. No one is defending the players. If you break the code of conduct or commit a crime, at Michigan, at a minimum you will be suspended at least one game. Which is in this day in age, a lot harsher than many other teams.

Btw, I said no lettuce on my Big Mac.

One thing that gets to me about this, particularly about Floyd and Hagerup, is that in the case of Floyd, he was recently interviewed and talked about how he was honored to play for Michigan, and Hagerup talked in another interview about how he had learned from his previous suspensions and turned that energy into good results this year. Apparently not, in the case of Hagerup. Very, very surprised about Floyd though, particularly since he seemed to take on something of a leadership role as a senior, which makes this all the more disappointing. 

Those losses in particular will sting, but as others have said, I like that the coaches mean what they say about "integrity" in no uncertain terms.

I appreciate the coaches disciplining players when they break rules. It's something many coaches around the country could benefit from...props to hoke and company. You don't follow the rules, you don't play. Hopefully these young men learn from their mistakes. As for hagerup, get your act together!!!!

I'm not disagreeing with you, but if it is something like weed (just a guess based on the usual speculation), these guys would definitely be like a number of their peers who get busted.  Not excusing their behavior, but just because these guys look older and more mature than their peers doesn't change the fact that college kids do dumb things at times.  Just like everyone else.

Denard to corner! He can't throw as well as he'd "like to"; he should be able to read theopposing QB and he's fast as hell. I predict two interceptions, with one return for a touchdown and game MVP.

He's managed to get himself suspended for an Ohio State game, a Notre Dame game, and now a bowl game. He's a dedicated young man who knows how to pick his spots, and his future looks very bright.

Does he only use the wacky weed before big games or is he only suspended before big games?  It seems like every program and television says that drug addiction is hard to not notice, so it seems strange that the drug abuse issue only comes about before important match ups.  I'd have to imagine there was a pattern of behavior: lying, a disheveled appearance, asking for money, long absences... that would've hopefully been noticed by someone to get these young men some help.

This is a bummer. And I read an article a few days ago about JT coming full circle against South Carolina. So much for them being Floyd's first offer and last collegiate game.

Sad to see it happen, but you have rules for a reason.  And two of the three are starters, so it isn't a case of favortism or only punishing kids who won't play much.

Multiple good sources are saying that there is a very good chance that Hagerup is off the team for good. Nothing definite, as Hoke may give him a way to return, but figured I would let you know since this isn't pure speculation.
