Michigan’s Glasgow: ‘I made a mistake… let a lot of people down’

A contrite Graham Glasgow was sentenced Monday in connection to a drunk-driving incident earlier this offseason, multiple media outlets reported.

The Michigan offensive lineman received 12 months probation, an $800 fine and six days of community service after pleading guilty to a lesser charge of operating a vehicle while visibly impaired.  He had originally been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Additionally, he’s been barred from drinking alcohol; is subject to random drug and alcohol tests as well as required to attend alcohol education classes; and speak to the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Victim Impact Panel.

At his sentencing, Glasgow apologized in remarks directed to the judge in his case.

“I made a mistake,” Glasgow told the judge. “I let a lot of people down. I’m sorry. This is an opportunity to learn from the mistake and never let this happen again.”

Last season, Glasgow started 13 games — nine at center, four at guard. He has been suspended for the season opener against Appalachian State.

    Coming from a Buckeye it’s nice to see that the young man realized he made a mistake and is doing everything to improve. Good job man.

    Coming from a diehard Michigan fan, I’m glad to see his contrition and I still say he should be kicked off the team.

    He didn’t allegedly rape someone, so I’m sure they’ll throw the book at him since he’s not a kicker.

    You’ve never made a mistake? You never drank in college? You’ve never gotten behind the wheel when you probably shouldn’t have?

    The kid screwed up, there is no debating that! However, this is an opportunity for him to learn a VERY valuable lesson, and your suggestion is to give up on him!? Thank god you don’t make these decisions!!!

    This is the first time I have seen a kid stand up and take responsibility. I’m sure a few have but it’s been awhile. This kid will be successful in life unlike the others who fail to take responsibility and blame everyone but themselves for their actions.

    I’ve never even consumed an intoxicating substance in my life, let alone having driven drunk.

    Drinking and driving is a serious offense, for which there must be serious consequences. Glasgow is not really facing serious consequences. Minor legal penalties and suspension from a probable blowout — how will that help him to learn anything?
