ANN ARBOR -- Fitz Toussaint knows one things about the 2013 football season.
It can't possibly be worse than 2012.
For the second summer in a row, Toussaint is expected to be Michigan's starting tailback, especially after the injury to five-star freshman Derrick Green. This year, though, he hopes things work out a little better.
The senior spent last summer knowing he had the tailback job wrapped up. With Denard Robinson at quarterback, distracting defenses, Toussaint thought he was in for the season of his life. Instead, it mostly turned into a nightmare.
The first disaster was self-inflicted. In late July, Toussaint was arrested for drunk driving. He was suspended from the team within days, and didn't return until after the first game of the season.
Between the missed practice and game time and a struggling offensive line, Toussaint never got going. He had only gained 483 yards and scored five touchdowns by the time he ran a sweep early in the Nov. 17 game against Iowa.
