The University of Michigan football team opens up their season on September 1st against Alabama in Arlington, Texas. Defeating the Crimson Tide, who just so happen to be the defending National Champions just got a whole lot tougher.
Running back Fitz Toussaint (Jr./Youngstown, OH) has been suspended indefinitely by head coach Brady Hoke, after Toussaint was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving over the weekend.
“Fitz made a poor decision and has been suspended indefinitely because of that action,” Hoke said in a statement released today.
Last season, Toussaint helped the Wolverines backfield become legitimate once again, rushing for over 1000 yards and scoring 10 touchdowns; he was the first Michigan running back to do so since Mike Hart in 2007.
Expect Thomas Rawls (So./Flint, MI) to carry the workload in the Wolverines backfield until Toussaint is allowed to play again.
