Sean Stanley and Derrick Thomas both missed out on the plane ride to Iowa and for the most part it went by quickly without much fuss. Now that we've all had time to settle down after the game more information is beggining to come out about the reasoning behind their missed flight. For the most part it was assumed to be an issue with grades, or a missed practice, something on the lower end of the serious scale. That may not be the case though. Joe had this to say when asked about their situation.
I’m telling you, we were told that we’re breaking the law if we talk about it. If any kid is in any way not allowed to play for one reason or another, we have a long letter from the university administration not to discuss it.
So whatever is going it looks like Derrick Thomas, and Sean Stanley may have a long road ahead of them if they want to see the field. That's if they're lucky.
This somehow missed our radar yesterday so sorry if you ran into this on your own.
Stop by the HUB today and pick up your season tickets. There should be a lot of fun things to do while you're there. Free food, games, and a chance to hang with the team.
October 12th on BTN. Check your local listings as they say.

A rather long list of recruits coming in for the Michigan game. Should be a great atmosphere to show off.
Unfortunately for the Illini, who head to Penn State this weekend, not many in the program have had success in Happy Valley — the Illini are 0-6 all-time at Beaver Stadium, the second-largest stadium in the country with a capacity of 107,282.
This is pretty cool. Hard to really explain without clicking yourself. Jack Crawford still scares me.
Got three exams today. Wish your fellow BSDer well.
