Cheap shot of the week

Here is a clip from the Notre Dame at Michigan game last Saturday. Keep your eye on the bottom left corner of the screen. You'll see Michigan's Jonas Mouton (No. 8) punch Notre Dame center Eric Olsen. You might have to turn off the popup ad the first time you watch the replay.

Update Friday, Sept. 18:
PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) — The Big Ten Conference has suspended Michigan linebacker Jonas Mouton for one game for punching a Notre Dame player during last week’s game.
Video of the incident during Saturday’s 38-34 Wolverines victory in Ann Arbor, Mich., spread on the Internet. Mouton appears to swing at the chin of lineman Eric Olsen as they get up from the turf following a play midway through the second quarter.
Big Ten Commissioner James Delaney called the punch “unacceptable.”
Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said he never saw the punch and that an official would have called any infraction. The Big Ten said the school had accepted the suspension.
No. 25 Michigan (2-0) faces Eastern Michigan (0-2) at home on Saturday.

Do you expect anything less from a Rich Rodriquez coached team? He probably taught him that personally.
