Draft Scout Fitzgerald Toussaint News
11/11/13 - Michigan's offense has regressed this season, and has been downright dreadful the past two weeks. The Wolverines, who allowed 11 sacks in their first seven games, have surrendered 15 in the past two games. Their rushing totals, which do factor in sack yardage for the past two games: minus-69 yards. Their RBs have managed only 35 rushing yards on 25 carries. - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com
10/05/13 - Running back Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for two touchdowns and tight end Devin Funchess had seven catches for 151 yards to pace Michigan to a 42-13 win over Minnesota on Saturday at Michigan Stadium in the 100th anniversary of the Little Brown Jug rivalry series between the two teams. However, the trophy game was overshadowed by the news earlier in the afternoon that Minnesota coach Jerry Kill would not be on the sidelines with the Golden Gophers in the Big Ten Conference game.
Less than three hours before kickoff, Minnesota's athletic department announced that Kill had suffered a seizure Saturday morning and did not travel to Ann Arbor with the Golden Gophers. "Coach Kill was not feeling well on Friday morning and decided to meet the team in Ann Arbor on Saturday," Minnesota's athletic department said in a statement, posted on the athletics website. "He then suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and will remain at home in Minnesota for today's game." Golden Gophers defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys served as Minnesota's acting head coach in place of Kill, and worked from the press box at Michigan Stadium. - The Sports Xchange
09/21/13 - Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns, Desmond Morgan made a one-handed interception in the fourth quarter that swung the game Michigan's way and the 15th-ranked Wolverines dodged another upset with a 24-21 victory against Connecticut on Saturday night. A week after Michigan needed a last-second stand to hold off Akron, Brendan Gibbons kicked a 21-yard field goal with 4:36 left to give the Wolverines (4-0) their first lead of the second half.
Chandler Whitmer threw two touchdowns and Ty-Meer Brown returned a fumble 34 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter that put UConn (0-3) up 21-7. Devin Gardner turned the ball over three times for Michigan and the Wolverines also muffed a punt inside their 10 that led to a UConn touchdown. Toussaint broke a 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and scored from 12 yards out right after Morgan's pick with 9:56 left. - AP Sports
09/14/13 - Fitzgerald Toussaint scored a go-ahead, 2-yard touchdown with 2:49 left and No. 11 Michigan made a desperately needed stop on the final play to hold on for a 28-24 victory over Akron on Saturday. College football's winningest program avoided getting upset at home -- as it did against Appalachian State and Toledo -- by a Mid-American Conference team that hasn't won a road game in nearly five years and was expected to lose by more than five touchdowns. Barely.
The Wolverines (3-0) trailed twice in the second half -- including with 4:10 left when Kyle Pohl threw a 1-yard TD -- and allowed the Zips (1-2) to get to the Michigan 4 on the final drive of the game. Pohl was pressured and hit by Brennen Beyer on the final play, leading to an incomplete pass in the end zone as time expired on fourth down. - AP Sports
09/11/13 - Scouting the Michigan running game: Michigan head coach Brady Hoke considers this his bread and butter, and he's not pleased quite yet. "We'd still like to run the ball better from the tailback position, and I think that's always going to be a constant," Hoke said, despite the fact the Wolverines have averaged better than 200 yards per game on the ground. He said he wants more of that to come from the tailback, and less from his quarterback. - The Sports Xchange
