Gibbons kicked four field goals over the last two years against Michigan State, accounting for 12 of the 18 points given up by the Spartans in the last two games. No touchdowns were scored by Michigan in those games.
Gibbons did not play in the final regular season game against Ohio STATE, and UM Coach Brady Hoke said it was due to a "muscle problem". Asked about the absence of Gibbons on the bowl trip, Hoke said the player was attending to "family business". The Detroit Free Press reports that both statements made by Hoke regarding Gibbons came after the university process had concluded and expulsion was imminent.
The expulsion is believed to be the first against any student in at least two years at Michigan.
(Interesting to note that MLive waited until just before Noon today to report this story. Every major media outlet had this story last night, but not MLive.)
