On this episode of "As Mt. Pleasant Turns," Thomas Rawls, the much-maligned Michigan transfer running back, has been held back in Mt. Pleasant as the team enjoys the sunny shores of Nassau due to what is being termed "an academic issue." Rawls had been previously believed to be 100% heading into the Bahamas Bowl after Western Michigan games this season. Devon Spalding and Saylor Lavallii will probably carry the majority of the load in his absence.
