Michigan DE pleads guilty to home invasion charge

A little over a week after being reinstated to the team by coach Brady Hoke, Michigan defensive end Frank Clark has pleaded guilty to a second-degree home invasion charge.

Clark (pictured, No. 57) entered the plea Tuesday at Washtenaw County Trial Court and will reportedly be sentenced on Oct. 23 — coincidentally, the same day that Wolverines running back  Fitz Toussaint will be sentenced for pleading guilty to operating while visibly impaired.

The two players were suspended during the offseason for their respective crimes and were actually charged around the same time as well. Clark’s charge stemmed from the alleged theft of a MacBook Air from a student’s dorm room this past June. Both did not travel with the team to Dallas for the season opening game against Alabama, but were back in action in Week 2 in a win against Air Force.

    @ foreverlsu —-
    coming from an SEC fan — reaaaally?
    You’re gonna go there? Okay, take a look at the free suits, GMC Denalis at Bama, $250k rent-a-Cam-Newton program at Auburn, UK basketball, LSU drug addicts, and I’m sure there’s a whole lot more people don’t even know about

    Typical scumbag Meeehigan player.

    Brady the joke Hoke is turning scUM into “THE U” of the Midwest.

    You might want to look at Ohio State and Jim Tressel before passing judgment on Michigan.

    And then, to boot, OSU hires another scumbag, Urban Meyer, who’s players had over 30 arrests during his regime. Talk about scum.

    And what’s funny are the ignorant posters on here acting like these are jokes players. We remember these are all rich rod recruits right? Why let the truth get in the way of a good narrative. Google “narrative” osu fans

    Wait, a fat coach eating a hamburger.
    That’s right already happend! GO HAMBURGER!

    Irish says this after you jokers had Charlie Weiss? Hoke had as many wins in one year as Weiss had his whole ND career. Don’t forget Hoke owns Brian Kelly. Kelly can’t recruit or coach better than Hoke. Pryor4Heisman congrats on copying and pasting one of the three posts you always make. Your name alone reflects a central figure in a huge scandal.

    @ foreverlsu:
    Would you care to place a few dollars on a bet that the SEC has a higher arrest rate and NCAA violation rate than the B1G?

  13. irisheyesnate says: Sep 12, 2012 12:05 PM

    Who’s players did joke win with? Oh ok. U guys looked good against bama and air force. Enough said!

  14. irisheyesnate says: Sep 12, 2012 12:08 PM

    Yeah Michigan looked like a high caliber team in their two games. Enough said.

  15. swcoach says: Sep 12, 2012 12:25 PM


    Um, Clark was recruited by Hoke. Might wanna check your facts before you start calling other people ignorant.

  16. therealgts says: Sep 12, 2012 1:05 PM

    Irish you are kidding right? You damn near lost to purdue. They are real solid competition. Yeah right. Keep bringing up Alabama also. Alabama would do what they did to Michigan to every team in the country except maybe two or three. Take off your gold dome and get a reality check bro. By the way, sweet back door into the ACC. If you are going to play five ACC games a year you might as well join the conference. I realize the financial gains but quit being so scared. FSU would throttle ND.

  17. irisheyesnate says: Sep 12, 2012 5:28 PM

    Ha! Ur too funny.
    Wait until u play purdue.
    Second, oh yeah we kicked the dog out of air force last yr and u struggled.
    Anyone can beat up on air force!
    Alabama on the other hand is a great football team. I will give u that but, you had three to four weeks to get ready for them which no one else gets. It’s week to week now.
    Get off your hail to the just got by air force.
    I bet you will beat a tough team like u mass. It is at Michigan after all.
    Last, we will have already played two big ten teams by the time our game gets here. You will have played bama and two cupcakes. App state is a tough team too!

    Oh yeah, NOTRE DAME IS 2-0

    What’s michigans record again?

  19. irisheyesnate says: Sep 12, 2012 5:31 PM

    Finally, I much rather almost lose to purdue instead of almost losing to air force !
    Think before talking next time.

    PSSSSSTTT… irisheye… no ones listening.
