Former three-star recruit and Michigan sophomore wide receiver, Csont'e York, was suspended indefinitely, the school announced today. The charge was the ubiquitous "failure to meet team standards."

Those standards, however, appear to be Michigan's criminal law:

A *ichigan man, on the wrong side of the law? There must be some mistake.

Hoke isn't meeting team standards. When does he get suspended?

According to Clark they took the "beat Ohio" sign down. If winning The Game is no longer a goal of theirs, then maybe he is meeting their standards. Sort of?

Probably the best move they could make.  Doubt they have what it takes to beat the Bobcats.

How are "failing to meet team standards" and being the "subject of a police investigation" the same thing? I mean....I don't know...maybe M*ch*gan has a rule about how many police investigations you can be involved in within a certain amount of time or how many you are supposed to be involved in within a certain amount of time, maybe? My guess is that it is an over/under type thing and this is just their way of keeping the cesspool full of whatever it is that gives that place its smell. More doughnuts for Brady Hoke, too.

'FAILURE TO MEET TEAM STANDARDS'

If it were Funchess, or Peppers, Hoke wouldn't have suspended them.

Because Peppers plays more positions than 9Route played on 11W?

Or we could go all B1G & do the "9-route-Peppers multiple positions & personalities best comment award". Just a thought ;)

If that award is made any more specific, I might just have a chance. Fingers crossed.

I think Buckeyeneer still claims naming rights to the 9Route awards.  You might have to toss him a few helmet stickers.  I think he's looking to replace all those used ones he acquired on the secondary market when he was running his sticker scam.  

Come to to think of it now, has anyone checked his IP address?

Italics are for emphasis.

Me passing out helmet stickers would be like Hoke passing out meaningful wins. Yet, it's worth a shot so I'll toss him all I got. (All both of em).

I guess after reading this I now know:

1) Who Csont'e York is
2) They have (sensible chuckle) team standards

Re: team standards, York must have not been on board with 7 wins.

Haha, I just read this on MLive:

I absolutely revel in their pain, almost more than I do in Ohio State's unrelated successes. The one two punch of 11W followed by a Michigan blog is so satisfying.

My 3 minute exhaustive google search says the po-lice are on him for possibly beating up a UM hockey player.  I think that's their second issue this offseason after Glasgow got caught driving around drunk.  Couple those with Lewan's various indiscretions and the Gibbons allegations and you have to wonder if anyone's in charge up there.

Oh yeah, Frank Clark sat a game after pleading to a felony home invasion charge.  Sherriff Hoke rules that lockerroom with an iron fist; Charlie Strong needs to get on his level.

I don't understand why they don't just admit that there is an investigation going on, it feeds into the whole snobbish buffoonery that they get accused of.

Thanks, I was only able to do a 30 second google search and didn't come up with anything.

If Brady Hoke were simply to wear his headset during the offseason, maybe none of this would ever happen.

What could he have done that is worse than stealing a laptop. The robbery got the player a one game suspension. York must be a Russian Spy.

Am I the only one hoping it has to do with marijuana so I can make the "Team 420" joke?

There seem to be a lot of you forgetting about the glass house we live in. The Sprinkle situation wasn't that long ago. 

I get it, "haha, Michigan sucks", but maybe we should be careful how we approach it.

You are right BB. TTUN didn't say anything about that situation!

I don't care what he did or how long he is suspended.  I just want to know how you pronounce Csont'e.

Too bad his last name isn't Csonka.  Now you got a football player.

To be fair they were promised donuts but Hoke ate them all.  I might have been salty enough to go home after that too.

The press release issued by any program, not just Michigan, usually will depend on what is known at the time of the release.  Michigan's statement on the suspension was the first indication there was anything going on with C'sonte, so of course they will say as little about the situation as possible given his right to privacy and what is considered public knowlege at the time.  By anouncing the suspension,people will start digging and find out what is going on, but the university isn't the first official source.  If the press had already caught wind of the incident and it was already out there, I would expect the statement from Michigan may have been different.  If you want to blame anyone for what is said by any program with regards to these situations, blame the lawyers that are most likely involved and have to approve any official statement.
