West Quad Story

In a move that surprised no one, Michigan coach Lloyd Carr has booted TE Carson Butler, DE Eugene Germany and DB Chris Richards off the team following their recent legal troubles.

Last month, Germany was ticketed for marijuana possession - which is right up there with jaywalking in terms of consequences in A2...unless you play on the football team. Couple that with the fact that the tight end also pleaded guilty to two counts of resisting arrest last year and Carr bid auf wiedersehen to Germany.

Butler and Richards are facing assualt charges for allegedly beating the snot out of some poor kid in West Quad. According to MLive.com, on March 18th, the kid went to a friend's dorm room looking to borrow an iron when Richards entered and accused the iron-seeking student of "talking crap" in a class.

The kid responded by telling Richards, "I don't know who you are. I don't know why you're bothering me.'' Richards responded by punching him in the face before Butler joined the beating.

The kid ended up in the emergency room with a bruised face and bleeding out of the ears (no word if he ended up getting the iron).

Now, while I have a very small amount of sympathy for Germany (kicked off the team and losing his weed?! Damn!), I have zero sympathy for Butler and Richards and say good riddance. This kind of thug mentality should never be tolerated. Period. Maybe this is the kind of shit that happens when you try to borrow an iron over at Markley. You don't know what bad is until you've been confronted on 5th Van Tyne by a couple of sophomores from Long Island. And maybe this is the way they roll at Alice Lloyd. But what is the world coming to when living in West Quad is now no better than the constant fear that comes from being housed in Bursley?

True. SQ mafia represent!!!!!

Wow really sounds like Michigan athletes are taking over for those OSU athletes. Way to carry the torch homos!

Spent two years hard time in the Bur-lodge during the late 90's before finally getting a house on central campus. Man I miss standing outside for a bus in -20 F only to have it show up from Northwood full. Oh that and buying cases of Natty Ice at Northside for 9.99 on a crappy ass fake and then schleppin em through the woods back to the lodge.

I almost dropped Michigan when I was notified I would be living up at the Bur-hood.
I soon found out that a few hundred frehsmen co-eds faced with social isolation make the best with what they have, if you get my drift.

In the "Teen College Co-Eds 34" sense or the "Deliverance" sense?

Michigan recruited a west coast quarterback a few years ago named Keller who de-committed when faced with the fact he would be living at West Quad.

His father lived there for a year in the '60s but he was a linebacker...its not a place for a sensitive quarterback.

I think Brian from MGoBlog said it best.

"You don't come into the WQ lookin' for no iron! I'm about to get in an elevator, wait for five minutes when I could have easily taken the stairs, and then furiously swipe my MCard in the door for another five minutes to get into that stuff!"

Out of Conference said...

Damn fine question, Walrus.

Benny Friedman said...

I'm going to look at the bright side - at least Chris Richards was going to class.

P.S. Since when do the football players live in West Quad? Back in my day they were all in South Quad.

PeterGriffin said...

Benny - They dine at South Quad, but live in WQ. I believe only Baseball players and track and field athletes live at SQ.... Anyone remember the annual snow fights??

PeckHorn78 said...

"That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind. And West Quad sucks!"

Richard Cranium said...

Title2 Just having some fun. Oh and thanks for pointing out the irony you intended, if it weren't for that I might have missed it.

TitleIX said...

Sir Richard and others:
The Bur-lodge was definitely like the co-ed videos and not at all like deliverance.
tru that the buses sucked, but one also had free parking and yours truly had a car.....

best practical joke?
my phone rings at 3AM, one of my hallmates says he's missed the bus, is drunk as shit and can I can get him??? I say, sure....drag my ass out of bed, get dressed, open my door and he is standing there, across the hall from me, in his room holding the phone to his ear...

priceless.

I know it's not football related, but you guys HAVE to do something with the story in the Michigan Daily about the woman who walked into a frat, masturbated for a half an hour and then left.

I'm going to quote from "Old School" on the masturbation story... "Stop being such a faggot! You're in the back seat."

That's all I can think about with frat boys throwing out a couch that a girl just mastubated on... I think I would have it bronzed, or something like that!

By the way, Benny, I lived in the SQ (Gomberg represent... ain't nothin' but a "G" thang baby!) and we had Jay Feely, Jerame Tuman, Clint Copenhaver, Chris Floyd on the floor... Scotty Dreisbach would come around every once in a while... I think with his sister... until Tuman knocked her up!

as an alum of both 5th van tyne AND west quad, all i have to say is...

that's how we roll...

MGoBlue93 said...

The article in the Daily made no mention of the hotness of the girl diddling in the PIKE house. :( It did say she was from EMU, so the potential is there. I seem to recall something about Michigan men dating Eastern women when I was an undergrad.

Out of Conference said...

Yo T9 - I must admit, your 2:30 response to Walrus's question begs an off-color question.

TitleIX said...

fire away OOC.
