Suspended Michigan senior cornerback J.T. Floyd had released a statement apologizing for his recent suspension from the Jan. 1, 2013 Outback Bowl. The suspension, for the ever-vague "violation of team rules" effectively ends his college football career.
Part of the apology includes the following:
"I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to the University of Michigan,
my fans, my friends, my coaches, my teammates, but most importantly, my
parents, my daughter, and my family for a poor decision I made this
past weekend in celebration of successfully completing my undergraduate
degree.I have given my heart and soul to this program, and it truly
disappointments me that I will not be with my teammates in Florida. This
is a deep pain that I am dealing with to the best of my ability. I am
23 years old and despite the successes I've had on and off the field, I
made a very uncharacteristic and immature decision. This decision
BEST OF MAXIM

Can't say I love the unis. Actually not at all. Maize numbers are an interesting choice. Looks to me like the maize's don't all match up. I've been waiting for the day when Michigan would attempt a matte helmet. It's not bad. At least the maize isn't chromey like MSU's green or OSU's red when they played us.
