Boubacar Cissoko's disorderly conduct case set for October trial

By Dave Birkett

Michigan cornerback Boubacar Cissoko has pled not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct stemming from a summer traffic arrest and faces trial Oct. 27, a representative of Detroit's 36th district court said Tuesday.

He could receive up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail, but likely will face a much lighter penalty if convicted.

He declined to talk about the case when approached by a reporter at Michigan media day Sunday.

Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said Cissoko is expected to start opposite Donovan Warren in Michigan's thin secondary this fall. Cissoko was disciplined internally this summer.

"Boubacar and Donovan are outstanding cover guys," Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said. "Some corners don’t like to play press and get in your face. You want ones that want and relish that and want to get in and play some press one-on-one man coverage, be aggressive on the edge. And both those guys have that kind of mentality."

Face it Kiddo, in Today's world of REALITY, it's ALL ABOUT WINNING...EVERY big program is going to "toe the line" and see how close they can get to cheating without actually cheating. I mean, who are we kidding?? I Love U of M....I love the BIG TEN, but if these coaches don't win NOW, they're gone.....don't belittle them when players turn out to be turds. imagine working EVERYDAY of your life in your career not knowing if you'll still be employed tomorrow.........

guess its obvious people on here cant see sarcasm when it is written. though i loved when ohio states freshman rb berry got busted with "personal stash" of weed um fans were demanding his suspension on the ohio state blogs. but before I leave dont think the man who brought pac man and chris henry into ncaa football wont bring some questionable characeters to ann arbor....

Easy there Buddy. EVERYBODY knows that a Disorderly Conduct charge means you just "pissed off the police." It's almost always a chump charge, and very easy to haul someone off to jail who just won't shut up. I'm not defending the kid for being a smart alec, but it's VERY easy to be arrested for that me, I use it all of the time.

"where's the outcry for him to be suspended?" Uh, he's innocent until proven guilty. Also, it's a traffic misdemeanor, not a felony, which seems to be a prerequisite for making the Buckeyes or Spartans. "oh wait, hes a starter cant do that. guess um fans will keep their stones in their hands instead of throwing them now" OSU fans are the ones who vandalize the cars of UM fans, so I guess an OSU fan should know all about throwing stones.

Suspend him for that? Boo Boo wasn't even the driver, but the passenger. His friend is the one who led police on a four minute chase. Yeah, Cissoko shouldn't have yelled at police to leave his boy alone (hence the arrest), and hopefully he has better judgment about the crowd he hangs with, but suspend him for that? Oh's not like he was driving drunk or trying to sell crack.
