Michigan's kicker Brendan Gibbons expelled for sexual misconduct

It was just announced that Brendan Gibbons, University of Michigan's kicker, has been "permanently separated" from the university. He's being expelled on the grounds that he violated the school's sexual misconduct code.

Most folks are linking to the Michigan Daily story, as are we, but details about the event behind the expulsion – which happened on November 22, 2009, mind you – have been available on the Washtenaw Watchdogs website for quite some time. I myself have read the entire police report (save for the blocked out names, of course) from the site, so if you're interested in reading it, I'd suggest going there and clicking on the police reports in the footnotes.

Long story short, Gibbons was arrested for raping an 18-year-old female Michigan student during her freshman year and his red shirt freshman year.

The second question Gibbons had after giving his testimony to the police, the first one being if he could stop talking:

"Will I be able to play football here next year?"
