i refuse to even consider this a possibility
This week's scouting report is on Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius outside linebacker Kyle Berger. The battle for Berger's services is reportedly down to Michigan vs. Ohio State. He is a SAM linebacker all the way, and Michigan needs to replenish the ranks of its SAM linebackers with just two certain ones on the roster right now - Cam Gordon (who will graduate after the upcoming season) and Jake Ryan (who is a redshirt junior). A couple other guys (Mike McCray II, Michael Ferns III) could play there, too. Berger's highlight reel on Hudl is a little long and could probably be condensed a little bit, but if you watch all the way through, you'll see him showing some impressive speed, an ability to hold the edge, and some pass rushing ability.
Say it ain't so!

I was wondering if some of the more proficient members of this board had any conjectures on how high Wilton Speight, might be ranked when it's all said and done?

BONUS SEC COVERAGE: Per the WWL, Georgia has lost the 9th member of a 19 player recruiting class from 2010. Attrition exists outside of Ann Arbor. YAY!
Brady Hoke released the following statement last night:
"We appreciate the work Jerry did in his two seasons here with the defensive ends and continuing to help build the foundation on our defensive line," he said. "We wish Jerry, Natalie and their entire family nothing but the best. "You always hate to lose members of your staff, but you know going in that at a program like Michigan, other schools and NFL teams are going to come after them. However, I am confident that we will name a new coach who fits in very well with our staff soon."
FWIW, here's Bob Stoops' statement (Jerry Montgomery video interview as well):
"Jerry Montgomery is a talented coach who further strengthens our staff at the University of Oklahoma," Stoops said. "I have closely followed Jerry’s progress as he has ascended through the coaching ranks. I have been impressed by his ability to recruit some of the nation’s top student-athletes and then develop their skills once they arrive on campus. We are excited to have Jerry and his family join the Sooners."
"It's truly a privilege to join the University of Oklahoma," said Montgomery. "Coach Stoops and his staff have an unbelievable reputation in the coaching community, and I'm excited to get to work with them. I'm very appreciative that I was able to work with Coach Hoke and our student-athletes at the University of Michigan. There were very few situations that could have convinced me to leave Ann Arbor, but the opportunity to join Coach Stoops and a storied program like the University of Oklahoma was one of them."
For information enthusiasts:
Might as well use this thread as today's open discussion on possible replacements. Maybe today's the day that rumors start swirling? I'd have to think that they'd name a replacement by Monday.
