michael floyd arested on DUI
WOW this hurts and boy has he got to be rethinking not going pro( betetr be his wake up call)
The arrest of Michael Floyd certainly wasn’t the news Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly was looking for as the Fighting Irish get set to open spring practice on Wednesday. The star wide receiver, who surprised many by returning to South Bend for his senior season and bypassing the NFL Draft, was picked up on a DUI charge early Sunday morning in South Bend. The 6-3, 227-pounder could be in even hotter water than a first-time offender because of his citation for underage drinking in January 2010. Because it’s his second offense, Notre Dame’s Residence Life could come down much harsher on Floyd, who caught 79 passes for 1,025 yards and 12 touchdowns last season while becoming the school's all-time leader in scoring receptions. But not only will the 21-year-old receiver have to deal with a committee, he also has to face Kelly — not an easy task especially after being named one of two captains for 2011 along with Harrison Smith. The second-year head coach lauded Floyd’s work ethic last season after the two didn’t exactly get off to the smoothest of starts in their relationship.
After the Irish built up so much momentum heading into this offseason following their closing four-game winning streak, which included the bowl win over Miami, the team now will have to deal with this distraction during spring drills. Definitely not what Kelly and Co. expected as they begin early preparations for a 2011 season that many people feel could include a BCS invite following an 8-5 campaign in 2010.
