Star Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd, suspended after a March 20 DUI arrest, has had his case heard by the school's notoriously stern ResLife board and will not face a suspension for the fall semester. He's still serving a suspension from football, however, a punishment term that's approaching a month in length, and according to our friends at Rivals, he's not even close to getting back on the team:
Kelly talked about "hurdles" Floyd must clear for reinstatement but declined to specify what the rising senior must do to earn his way back. Floyd’s suspension from team activities has included him working out on his own and seeking counseling following his third alcohol-related incident during his Notre Dame career.
Our Notre Dame blog, Rakes of Mallow, takes a cursory glance at other college football DUI arrests and thinks a one-game suspension is a good place to start:
Combining a one game suspension with community service, rehab programs and checking anything else off of Brian Kelly's list to prove he's on the right track is a punishment that is not over-the-top but also prevents anyone from legitimately saying that Notre Dame took it easy on him because he's a star athlete.
Floyd's court date is set for early May.
