"The University of Michigan has a distinguished group of Certified Athletic Trainers and team physicians who are responsible for determining whether or not a player is physically able to play. Our coaches have no influence or authority to make determinations if or when an injured player returns to competition."

But that's my reaction exactly. What a pile of horseshit. No mention at all of the head injury, and acts as if trainers are the ones responsible. Nussmeier for sure saw Morris woozy; not clear about Hoke. If anything I worry Nuss will be scapegoated and Fort BrandHoke refortified. F them all. Hoke is responsible and admits nothing. Not my idea of the 'Michigan Man'. Stephen Ross, are you still proud of this program?

This is very NFL/Goodell like in that they are saying they know more than the fans who all watched the game and we are wrong to question them on this subject.

Here's the flaw in this... The film doesn't lie. We all saw it. We're not dumb. I am tired and I don't think I can debate any more right now. We're all in for a lot of BS this week and @davebrandon and Hoke will be flinging it strong at our great intelligent fan base. Let's stand up and make some statements that they can't ignore on Saturdays. Don't go to the games. Stop following them on social media and stop buying Coke...okay maybe not the Coke thing because I need my Coke fix for work.

So our official statement is that he was removed from a game due to injury (or even better an aggrevation of an injury he sustained earlier) that his coach stated emphatically he didn't see?

Wow! No mention of a jarring blow to the head or any following of concussion protocol!?
Do they really think this will just go away if they sweep it under the rug?
