No, but you don't lie. He didn't tweak anything and there were no family issues in Florida. "No comment" works well when you can't divulge something....

That's the point. This is beyond rivalry, it's about a school that takes great pride in occupying the moral high ground in all situations allowing an alleged rapist to represent them. By expelling him, they are conceding that he did something wrong. They handl...

Right, but he was out against OSU because he tweaked something. OK, fine. The Bowl game was played 9 days after the expulsion, yet the reason given was "family issues." A total lie.
You should probably find this embarrassing....

Good move IMO. It gives them the flexibility to re-sign Scherzer and Cabrera. Miggy can move back to 1B, while Nick Castellanos, one of Detroit's top prospects, can move to his natural position at 3B. Now if they can find/sign a LF, they're in great shape....
