Can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

A DUI at noon on a Monday? Thats not easy to do.

Look who he has as a boss. It seems real easy to me. I would be more concerned for the coaches that are not a little sauced coaching for that guy.

His name is Fergus Connolly.  If cultural stereotypes are to be inferred here, he's never not drunk.

He's out celebrating all those linemen Warriner developed here.

It was just a suspicion charge.
He was drooling, incoherent babbling, shitting the bed in big moments, climbing trees, leaving teenagers houses at 10 in the morning. ....etc.etc. You know, all the signs of a drunken person.

Then he explained he coached at Michigan and all became clear.

On an unrelated noted Jim Harb's teeth are as yellow as his maize M. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Gary Moeller.....what a dick! Former team captain for our beloved Buckeyes then turncoat

The pain of discipline or the pain of regret, take your pick

I used to feel the same, but looking back I can't hold it against Moeller in taking a coaching gig at one of the more esteemed programs in college football.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

I see your point but I'd feel a lot better about it if he threw every game :)

Easy to throw stones but this is one bad decision from one person away from happening anywhere.

Defending it? No
Justifying it? No.

Seems more a reflection of the individual than the university. If it happened here we would condemn the individual but defend the university. Right?

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

His bio says he used to coach for the Browns - so at least we know why he started drinking heavily

Honest mistake...he thought it was St. Paddy’s Day...

If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.

Wonder if Blu.fan will check in here with his takes or keep it to the basketball threads on an OSU website.

Must be taking a page from the Moeller script.

I really hate seeing things like this happen.  Drinking while impaired is very serious under any terms, let alone before noon on a workday.  Having seen firsthand the damage that alcohol can do when it is abused, I do hope he gets the help he needs.

Drinking while impaired

To be fair, don't most college kids do that? 

HS

Right. Isn't that the purpose of drinking? To be impaired?

<Not defending driving while under the influence of ANYTHING here, just at the mis-statement. As you were.>

The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.

I should have checked my post before hitting save.  That second sentence was meant to start out with "Driving while impaired" just to set the record straight.  Go Bucks!

All good, man - just had a little chuckle about it. Have a great day, and GO BUCKS.

Well-fueled performance direction.

New Day for OSU. Same noon for TTUN.

If you tie on a good drunk and finish your drinking at 2 am. You will fail a DUI test at 4 pm the next day. What caught my eye is the several days for the results even if blood was drawn it doesn't take that long.

If I was Director of Performance at Michigan, I'd probably be drunk at noon on a Monday, too.

But I wouldn't get behind the wheel.

Curious if he was he heading to or from work? Either way - it's stupid - lots of innocent people die every year from Drunk Drivers. 

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Article says he was arrested at First and Mosely, which is down the hill toward downtown Ann Arbor from the stadium. It is a residential area just off of Main Street which runs by the Big House. Very odd place to get pulled over unless he was on Main and got signaled by the cops, and chose to turn onto Mosely out of traffic. Wonder if he was impaired due to meds, rather than he was drinking.

Michigan, Fergus as a name. Good start for getting that morning drunk on.

Man old Harbaugh needs to brush his Teeth.

HS

Jim, Michigan has a very highly rated dental school. I'm sure the students and faculty would be happy to help that smile of yours be a little brighter. And you would get a discount.

"We have lab results that need to be submitted before charges can be brought," Lige said. "That will take several weeks."

Good news. The results are in.....
You still suck.

No calvados for him. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

Glad there was no crash/injuries or worse.

Yellow teeth and looking like you're taking a dump. Not a good look, Jim.

First I've heard of Fergus Connolly, wishing him well through this.

Up here, we try to ensure our kids head off to school with a well balanced lunch, which often includes a pint in the lunch bag (we're not animals - it's usually just a light beer) ..... I do love that motto, Scarlet Arrow - "Can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning" !!

It takes several weeks to get lab results back? Are they sending them to Bumfuck Egypt?
