Michigan Adds Two Players To Bad Boyz List

When the weather turns cold throughout the Hockey Belt, college hockey players turn to alcohol and suspensions are sure to follow.

According to USCHO.com Michigan has suspended freshman forward Jacob Fallon and senior defenseman Tristin Llewellyn for the rest of the season, according to a published report in the Michigan Daily. Team spokesman Matt Trevor said Thursday morning the violations were behavior-related rather than performance related.

Last season, Fallon was suspended by the U.S. National Team Development Program and later left the NTDP for the USHL’s Indiana Ice. So yet another Junior Bad Boy graduates to the big leagues.

Llewellyn was one of the youngest players to verbally commit to a college hockey program when he committed to Michigan as a 15 year-old in 2005. He was also the youngest player in the USHL at the time of his commitment. Llewellyn's announcement sparked recruiting battles for younger and younger players among the college hockey power programs. Now his college career is over and one to wonder if the recruiting process at such an early age played a part in stunting his maturity.

DG, you clearly need to increase your readership in Michigan. Usually these bad boyz stories have 10 replies in 30 mins telling you what a jerk you are.
