http://www.washtenawwatchdogs.com/4...football-player-brendan-gibbons-for-rape.html The gist is that in 2009, Brendan Gibbons, then a freshman kicker for the Wolverines, was accused of rape at a campus party. His roommate at the time, OL Taylor Lewan, was accused of then intimidating the victim into keeping her mouth shut, allegedly saying he'd rape her again if she said anything. No prosecution was pursued by the authorities, no punishment for Lewan or other players for intimidation either, for whatever reason. The above blog post was dismissed as a Buckeye fan twisting the facts to trash Michigan, that the matter had been vetted, and there was nothing to see here. Then today: http://mgoblog.com/content/brendan-gibbons-expelled-untruths-rampant It comes to light that Gibbons, a 5th year senior this past fall, was expelled in December, just before Michigan's bowl game. He was expelled for that 2009 incident, by a University conduct enforcement body of some kind, who decided after 4 years that it was time to dole out a punishment. The other shady part is Brady Hoke and UM AD Dave Brandon basically lied about the reasons Gibbons was going to miss the bowl game. They cited "family issues", and Hoke mentioned a possible injury of some sort. This will be hard for Michigan to explain away, at best it's a just a completely bungled situation, if not a complete cover-up. Also makes Hoke's seat even hotter than it was. It seems to be turning a lot of Michigan fans against Hoke and the AD, if they weren't pissed already.
