Brady Hoke reinstates Fitz Toussaint, Frank Clark

The suspensions for Michigan running back Fitz Toussaint and defensive end Frank Clark will be for one game only.

Brady Hoke announced Monday that the two have been reinstated to the team after not making the trip to Dallas for last Saturday’s opener against Alabama.

“They are both going to play this week,” Hoke said. Michigan hosts Air Force.

Toussaint was arrested July 21 and hit with a drunk driving charge, but that was eventually reduced to operating a vehicle while visibly impaired, to which he pleaded guilty. Clark was charged around the same time as Toussaint with second-degree home invasion stemming from the alleged theft of a MacBook Air from a student’s dorm room this past June.

Hoke added that Clark has “paid a lot of consequences internally.”

While the reinstatement is good news for the Wolverines, there’s still plenty of bad news as cornerback Blake Countess has been lost for the season to a torn ACL.

    Yeah. He suspended his guys for arguably the biggest game of the season, and he’s a facilitator. Get real man.

    Drunk driving and burglary get you a one game suspensions but getting some free tattoos gets you 7 games? That’s justice. Brady Hoke you are trash! Thanks for the laughs last Saturday!

    To think if they had played against alabama maybe Bitchigan would’ve got another fg!! Hoke is now allowing these punks/losers back after one game, jus shows that this school/team is a complete joke. Wont be the only game you choke in this season.

    Hey OSU loser, look at your coach. He is a two faced loser and loves his criminals. So STFU and and face the facts.

    Ah ya gotta love the hypocrisy of tOSU fans. Woody and Sweatervest, the 2 most successful coaches in tOSU history left their jobs under controversial circumstances and they say Brady Hoke is trash. LMAO

    The sad thing is tOSU fans hate Michigan more than they love their own team.

    Boy, that’s showing these 2 young felons what life is really all about. Playing football should definitely be more impt. that letting college felons know that their behavior will not be tolerated. Really a great message to send to youn kids that look up to college athletes.

    Funny how squeeky clean Michigan thinks it is.

    Why does Michigan come off as the most arrogant program in college football? They think the college football world still revolves around them. Not a Bama fan at all, but fun to see them put in their rightful place on Saturday night. Yes and I know Tedford is terrible.

    SEC will always rule college football.

    Smack talk is juvenile. That said, it’s time for the “Big 10″ to admit the obvious: this conference doesn’t deserve a BCS bid.
    The Alabama-Michigan game looked like the varsity playing the junior varsity. Michigan was said to be a contender in the “Big 10″. Wisconsin barely held on against (what used to be called Division II) Northern Iowa. I could go on. Ohio State looked like a real deal(infused by Urban Meyer) and Nebraska looks good enough to lose to an SEC team in some bowl. That’s it.

    The BIG 10 needs to be renamed the “MEDIOCRE 12″.
    It is an inferior conference that would lose 90 percent of it’s games head-to-head with the SEC.
    I’m ashamed of nearly the whole conference in football. It’s time the Mediocre 12 conference leaders looked at themselves in the mirror and said we have to start figuring out a way to improve the product, not just con the reporters covering the teams to keep hyping it as a mega-conference(in football) which it clearly is not.

    Nice cut & paste hodag.
    focker, really? Yeah why don’t we take away all and any chance that these kids might get from being in college. No chance for an education or a career. Maybe they can drop out and become a burden to society because they have no skills.
    By the way do you happen to live in a glass house?
