This reminds me a lot of what happened with JH in the 2011 coaching search.
This is coming from r/cfb whose sources are a couple posts from a USC board, but it sounds like the transfer talk is legit.
Allegedely OL EJ Price punched head coach Clay Helton and is transferring to Georgia. The post also mentions a number of other players that plan to transfer:
- Freshman Safety Jamel Cook
- Junior OT Chuma Edoga
- Junior QB Max Browne
The post also mentions Adoree Jackson and Juju Smith however I am not sure if those would be transfers as they are probably NFL-ready.
Apparently Helton will address the situation today but if there are lots of transfers, this can't be a good look to recruits.
[LOCKED] OT: USC Linebacker *ALLEGEDLY* Rapes The Same Woman Twice, And Then Snapchats It To Her Former Boyfriend
Not all the details released yet. Story is developing.
[ED-BiSB: Comments locked for reasons that should be obvious, but which do not seem to be landing yet. Victim-blaming will not be tolerated, either here or in polite society. On a blog, the repercussions are trivial. In the real world, it serves to make life worse for the maaaaaany women affected by rape and serves as an impediment to actually reducing the problem, not to mention making the victim-blamer look like an ass. Knock it the hell off.]
Seeing what we just went through here at Michigan, I look at this hire as ... unique. Seems like a university like USC would be able to have someone that has done the job before and worked their way up through smaller schools, ala Warde Manuel.
Am I missing something in his history that would make him qualified, or is this as interesting to you as it is to me?
The 1977 Rose Bowl game has been posted to Youtube today.
USC 10-1 vs. Michigan 10-1.
Michigan's only loss was 14-16 at Purdue.
USC's only loss was 25-46 to Missouri
Great game with tons of great stars on both sides.
USC tailback Ricky Bell (42), quarterback Vince Evans (8), FB Mosi Tatupu (36), Charles White (12) and DB Dennis Thurman (7). Bell got knocked out of the game at 7 minute mark by DB Jimmy Bolden (22). Jack Harbaugh coached the UM secondary in 1976.
Michigan fullback/tailback Rob Lytle (41), tailback Harlan Huckleby (25), wingback Jim Smith (37), quarterback Rick Leach (7) and All American OG Mark Donahue (60), OT Bill Dufek (73) OT Mike Kenn (78) and C Walt Downing (72) and more.
Michigan ran the option I offense, and I believe featured the top scoring and rushing offense in the nation that year, a feat Michigan football has not repeated since.
Curt Gowdy did a great job, per usual, but I'm pretty sure color analyst and former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Don Meredith was stoned and drunk during this NBC broadcast. That's the 70s for you.
Some eerie foreshadowing: Charles White fumbles the ball at the 1 hour 12 minute mark. It's recovered by Michigan at the 7 yard line by DL Mo Morton (77). White had an otherwise impressive game. Two great defenses.
It was hard-hitting defensive games like these that probably impressed John Robinson the most about Bo and his teams.
I thought for a while that Brady Hoke's treatment of Shane Morris was without parallel, and then I remembered Lane Kiffin's treatment of Robert Woods against Utah in 2012. And here is the silver lining: there is no record, at least so far as I can find on the internet, of USC fans demanding Kiffin's head for the dangerously poor judgment.
The Michigan Difference is just this: this community actually cares. We care about the safety of our players and the integrity of our coaches. When a coach does not live up to the standard of integrity at Michigan, we demand change. When an athletic director runs a program that does not put the well-being of student-athletes first, we demand change. And when a football player's future is endangered by the incompetence or callousness of a coaching staff entrusted with his development and protection but blinded to the realities of medical science by the mantra of toughness, we demand change. Let there be change. Ensuring that the job not only gets done, but gets done right--that's the Michigan Difference. This time, at least, it has to be.
Sub-snowflake addendum: the main reason I don't like Dave Brandon is that he is the only person I have ever met in the administration at Michigan--and maybe Brady Hoke will turn out to be this kind of person, too--who does not respond to criticism from their Wolverine brethren with an honest attempt to learn from the feedback to do the job at a level that reflects well on an institution that's bigger than all of us. Dave Brandon is the only one who reacts to criticism with sarcastic dismissal, the only one who won't listen to his fellow Wolverine, and the only one who does not do everything he can to do the job at a level Michigan deserves.
