Okay, so Penn State isn't the only school that has problems. Today, Michigan, one of PSU's Big Ten foes, had to deal with some trouble of its own. Last year's starting running back Fitzgerald Toussaint has been suspended indefinitely following his Saturday DUI arrest charge, ESPN is reporting.

As the starter in 2011, Toussaint rushed for over a thousand yards and had nine touchdowns, while sporting an impressive 5.6 yards per carry average. He was expected to be a major part of the offense complementing Denard Robinson this year.
