Report: Floyd to play in 2011

Multiple sources report Floyd will not be suspended from the University for the 2011 fall semester.

The early morning hours of March 20, 2011 might not have ended Michael Floyd's final fall in an Irish uniform as initially speculated.

As first reported today by's Keith Arnold, then confirmed through various, though unofficial sources, the Irish senior star will reportedly not miss playing time next fall – at least not due to a punishment levied by the University's Office of Residence Life.

Though details of Floyd's hearing last week and second session (reportedly today) are unlikely to be made public, Floyd will reportedly not be suspended for the fall 2011 school semester – a possibility set forth in du Lac, the University's student handbook for a second alcohol offense involving an off-campus DUI.

Forthcoming punishment from head coach Brian Kelly, however, is likely.

Kelly is scheduled to be available to the media following Saturday morning's practice, the 11th of the spring, each of which was completed without Floyd among the ranks. Floyd, who has a May 2 court date set, failed multiple field sobriety tests on the morning of his arrest and his BAC level registered at .19, more than twice the state's legal limit.

It was Floyd's third alcohol-related arrest since 2009.

Irish Eyes will have more on Floyd's future, the official punishment from Residence Life if available, and that of his head coach upon comment. Top Stories
