Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.
Fitzgerald Toussaint lay broken on the turf last November. Carted off the field to the faint applause of 100,000 worried souls that just watched his grisly injury happen right in front of them.
It's been a long time since Fitzgerald Toussaint has laced up his cleats and stepped out on the Big House turf. In 28 days, he will get to do it again.
