Butler, Richards, and Germany all kicked off the team today. Butler is the only one that stings. I'm glad Lloyd kicked them off the team though. Maybe they can transfer to Florida State, and get a million chances.


From what I understand it was just a fight at a house....I mean, that should be disciplined for sure but kicking them off the team seems a little steep. There must be more to the story.

I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

I'm surprised they're not getting the usual Lloyd Carr punishment, having to miss the first snap of the Appalachia State game wink.gif

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

The "Lloyd Carr" Punishment? Usually he kicks them off the team almost right away (like this case). Which takes balls especially when you're a big college football program. Just because Carr gave Marlin Jackson a second chance doesn't mean he does that to all his players. Jackson got lucky, and should thank Carr....especially after winning a SB ring this year.

I give props to guys like Carr and Tressel (let 2 starting TE's go) for doing things like that.

There kind of is. Germany came here from USC, where he got into some trouble there. So he knew he was on thin ice to begin with. Richards got into some trouble last season, but since Ron English is his godfather I think thats why he stayed on board. I have no clue with Butler...he must have done something stupid, because he's a key part to the team

Well it sounds like these guys have had their second chances then.

I just dont think you can give up on a college kid after one mistake. 18-20 year olds just arent that smart sometimes and make bad decisions. Everyone deserves a second chance, short of a serious crime of course. At the same time, I'm not condoning a Florida State type forgiveness.

I agree....I wouldn't do FSU treatment (although I can understand why Bowman does it), but I think a 2 strike rule is very fair

I'm just busting your balls. I actually have a lot of respect for Carr and the way he runs a clean program.

I read that today, and it totally grossed me out...name sounds good though. It's alot better then something like Lloyd Bo. I hope young little Tressel ends up at U-M someday...that would be great!

when Wifey and I found out we were going to have a kid, I was rooting for it to be a boy and a girl twin set biggrin.gif

Scarlet and Grayson anyone? biggrin.gif
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Nah I never really liked him even when he was on track to win the Heisman biggrin.gif

Side Note: I played against guys like Scott McMullen and Tim Anderson in high school....

Scott McMullen the QB?? Who's Anderson? I played against Kevin Grady, Kelvin Grady, and Ronald Johnson (USC) back in the day. Our school also played against Neitzel a number of times, but I sat safely in the stands while he lit us up laugh.gif

Yep, the same guy. He was the catcher for Granville and I played for Watkins and they had a nasty little rivalry going on when I moved to Ohio in 1997. I struck him out once and the second time up he hit a homer off me that hasn't landed yet.

Tim Anderson was a heavyweight wrestler in High School (he won the state championship his senior year in 97-98) and kicked the ever loving s*** out of me when my wrestling team practiced against his. Our heavyweight was injured and while I was the 189 class guy, I had been wrestling heavy because I'd dislocated my elbow early on that year and was just getting back. I had to check but he's playing for the Bills now...

Not fun biggrin.gif

Good stories....it's fun playing against those kind of guys then watching them at the next level. Can't wait to see Ronald Johnson at USC even though I'm still pissed he didn't go to U-M.
