is there such a thing as a clipboard farmer's tan?
With a title that made most of you go "Wait what? Ohhhh... I get it," Steven "Roundtrip ticket" Threet will be likely holding a clipboard in the desert. ESPN reports that former University of Michigan quarterback Threet, not to be confused with current walk-on University of Michigan quarterback Nick Sheridan, will go not to Nebraska... or Oklahoma... or Texas... or USC... but to the Arizona Sun Devils and wait out a mandated one year via NCAA rules. While this transfer makes no sense to many, rumor has it he will earn a 1.0 credit of Independent Study coursework for his paper "Reliving Manifest Destiny Through Football"
This leaves many speculating Threet may again fail in 2010 to get the starting position and instead play backup to this guy:
a walk-on who has spent time on the sidelines learning the offensive set apparently better than a scholarship athlete. Note, however, that the fire indicates he may in fact be fiery and fast...

Quarterback Steven Threet, a redshirt freshman who started eight games for Michigan last season, has decided to transfer to Arizona State, a source close to Threet said Monday.
Threet also considered Oregon State but developed a relationship with the Arizona State coaching staff and had an excellent visit over the weekend.
Threet wanted to fit into a pro-style offense after having been previously enrolled at both Georgia Tech and Michigan.
The move remains confusing as John Effing Elway's son left ASU saying there was too much competition at the position, most likely the exact reason he left Michigan when RR's 'chosen one' came to campus. SO basically one can presume Threet is transferring more for this:
