Please tell me this isn't true!   Please tell me it's another Kinesiology Student from Michigan named Frank Clark that was arrested for 2nd degree home invasion.

Ironic ad placement at the top of my MGoBlog page: The headline reads "A DUI can cost you thousands." It was for some legal service. Nice.

OK #1, innocent until proven guilty.  Granted, it looks bad....looks like Fitz did it... but for once can we just let the process that is in place for this stuff take its course?

#2  Coach Hoke will levy an appropriate punishment at the appropriate time.  We aren't SEC.  We aren't OSU.  We aren't MSU.  Coach has that ingrained in him as much or more than any of us.  There is no reason to think he won't do the right thing.

#3  If/when Coach does lower the boom on Fitz...... if Fitz pays the price and does what the team asks of him to get back to playing status, I will welcome him back with open arms.  All you "one mistake - you're out the door" guys.... well I'm glad you weren't my Dad growing up.   People screw up.  Hopefully they then pay the price, learn, and change their behavior.  If Fitz does that I'd still be proud to see him wearing the winged helmet. 

#4  There are other players who can step up if/when Fitz gets his punishment.  There are a few more guys who can do some damage...  one of those guys is the Dilithium god himself...maybe you've heard of him.  Maybe Rawls, maybe Smith.... maybe someone at a position other than RB, or maybe even on the other side of the ball.  Honestly, we need all those maybes to step up even if Fitz plays.  In order to beat 'Bama we're going to need monumental games from a lot of players, not just whoever is toting the rock at RB.

missed a combined 20 testing sessions and meetings during one summer, and no one on the U-M staff seemed to notice?

By my count Stonum got about 23 chances before he was finally bounced. He really had to work at it but Hoke couldn't let a second offense go after Stonum had thumbed his nose at the law after the first.

The difference between Hoke and Dantonio (aside from recruiting ability) is the number of strikes granted to players before they are seen as an embarrassment to the program. Fitz effed up and is suspended indefinitely. How many multiple DUI Sparties are still cruising around the field on fall Saturdays?

I'm sorry I just got done vomiting what were we talking about?

Well Vincent Smith it's your senior year and your last chance to do something great, don't let us down.

This is extremely disappointing.  With that being said, I have to wonder about the people saying "Guess we have no chance at Bama now."

Was our gameplan ever really going to be to run Fitz down their throats?  I really don't believe so.  Not against Bama.  This is a blow, but not as huge a blow as some think, in my opinion.

I agree. I think we might fair better against bama with a back like Rawls. Don't get me wrong , fitz is the man but his step back style may look like it did against VT , in the bama game. Rawls has a little more meat on his bones.

A win over bama will be tough with our without Fitz. I think it will all come down on how well our defense plays and more so on Robinson's arm and legs! Special teams and winning the turnover battle will go a long way. I'll be watching the game, cheering the team on, no matter what!

Hopefully, Fitz can turn it around and be ready for the B1G season if Hoke decides to suspends him until the start of B1G season! May be only the season opener? We'll see how hard he works during summer camp!
