UPDATE: Brian Kelly announced on Monday evening that Michael Floyd has been suspended indefinitely


Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd has only improved as his career has progressed, which is why Irish fans were thrilled to hear the star announce that he would return for his senior season.  Unfortunately, his decision making has not undergone the same improvements.

WDNC in South Bend is reporting that Floyd was arrested early Sunday on a DUI charge, just 15 months after being cited for underage drinking in January 2010.  Floyd was reportedly arrested by Notre Dame police around 4 a.m. then released later after posting bond.  

Floyd had the best season of his career in 2010, pulling in 79 receptions and totaling 1,025 yards to go along with 12 touchdowns. The Irish had a less than stable quarterback situation last season, but it did not matter for Floyd who now sits second all-time in career receptions. Currently with 171 catches on his career, it is assumed that floyd will catch Jeff Smardzija (179) in the 2011 season.

Brian Kelly, nor Notre Dame has made an official statement on the issue. Stay tuned to CBSSports.com for more as this develops.

Report: Michael Floyd arrested for DUI

I guess, by now, I should not be surprised at the amount of stupidity spewed on these message boards. I continue to read for those occasional gems, but as rational posters become more and more fed up with the ignorant and/or biased posers, they are getting harder to find. 
Sad are those who lay in wait for the college kid to mess up, so that they may use it to attack a school in general. Tells me that you have nothing of substance to offer these boards. And, yes I know some ND fans who are guilty as charged.
Sad that another kid screwed up, somehow convincing himself that he was still legal. About 70% of those who kill while driving drunk express that they did not think they were drunk.  It's simple. Drink, don't drive. Drive, don't drink. Where were his friends? Teammates? Someone brave enough to say, Michael, you could lose everything, you could damage our season, you could KILL somebody. 
It's not his first screw up. And, as much as it will hurt the Irish, I say make it hurt so that maybe he, his friends, and his teammates finally learn a lesson.
Now, unless your school has NEVER had a kid screw up, please just be quiet. And, don't give me the old ND fans spout the same crap when it's my school. Really, that weak-azzed argument doesn't even cut it in second grade. Man up or shut up.

Couldn't have happened to a better organization.

1st their coach kills a kid.
then they get pounced out of the NCAA tourney
and now this.

I'm sure it'll get swept under the rug because they are Notre Dame the little darlings of the NCAA and the BCS.

Makes me want to f'in' puke.

"he's at a catholic school....catholics like to drink"


Hey, Husker, you're from Nebraska, Nebraskans like to smoke meth. Lay off the pipe, leave the cows alone, and make sure your white hood is clean for your next cross burning!

Unfortunately this happened at a time when there are a lot of eyes on Notre Dame already.  Some really bad choices being made by players, coaches and administration, including the team I cheer for, just add to the mess the NCAA seems to be turning into.

...and this was BEFORE the basketball team sucked it up at the United Center. After that miserable showing, I would think that the DUI to sober driver ratio around South Bend was at a pretty high level.
