Late last week, Justin Feagin was dismissed from the team. Wolverines Coach Rich Rodriguez said only that Feagin violated team rules.
Feagin played sparingly as a freshman -- mostly on special teams -- but had hopes of getting snaps at wide receiver or even quarterback, given the emphasis Rodriguez's offense places on mobility at that position.

Detectives in that case entered his DNA into a national database that found it matched DNA in three previous rape cases in Illinois during the mid-1990s, when Feagin was playing football there.
Depending on what happened to cause Justin Feagin to lose his place at Michigan, he may be able to use his three remaining years of eligibility at another university. When he was still in high school, Cincinnati was a suitor.
