I don't recall any posts about QBforce.com and it's hall of shame in the few short months I've been around here, but I was perusing the site again today, and they've basically put every single spring article praising Denard and Devin up on the Hall of Shame...
What are your thoughts on this? I see no good coming from it. There's nothing better than putting articles praising your teammates on a "Hall of Shame" to break up team unity.
I can't believe the coaching staff hasn't jumped all over this and squashed it. It's completely immature and un-becoming of a teammate, in my opinion.

Has to be a mistake, right?
Maybe it's because I live in ACC country and hear more of it but it seems that there is an increase in future/current ACC football players having run ins with the law recently.
Parks is a Parade All-American who holds the North Carolina state rushing record and has committed to play college football at the University of Virginia.....
Hartman said the deputy told Parks he was going to deploy his taser if Parks did not comply. When Parks refused to surrender to the trooper, Parks was shot with the taser.
Have been some threads about our players and their endurance performance.
Truth is.... not exactly an endurance sport.
I spoke with AJ Jordan (WR/Trotwood, OH) today, and he told me that he'd like to commit to a school before his senior season starts. When I asked him if Michigan will be that school, he said, "There's a good chance it might be them."
AJ is going to try to make it up for the BBQ on the 21st, but might have a track meet on the same day.
To offer my two cents, I really like Jordan, I think he'd be a really good addition as a wide receiver to complement what we already have.
Floridia WR Sammy Watkins (Scout 5*, #3WR, Rival 4*, ESPNU 150 Watch List) is featured in this gatorsports.com article. Previously featured here, Watkins appears to have Michigan in his top 3 along with UF and The U.
With more colleges showing interest in Sammy, he said he will use his summer to visit schools rather than competing at camps. He realizes schools won’t get to see him showcase his skills, but he’s not concerned with that because he’ll have the season to show coaches what he can do.
“I don’t really care about (working out at camps) because I can work out with my coaches and my teammates or I can just train myself,” he said. “I don’t need anybody to motivate me so I don’t care about any camps.
Sammy said he and his coach will sit down next week and narrow his list of schools down to 10. As of now, the only schools he knows will make the cut are Florida, Miami and Michigan.
Convincing Watkins to leave the comfort of home and brave the cold of Michigan is quite a tall order for RichRod and his staff, especially given that...
...there are two schools that have stuck out for him since his recruitment began — Florida and Miami. Watkins said he grew up watching the Hurricanes and having them close to home has helped him learn more about the program.
“I like them,” Watkins said of Miami. “It’s close to home, good school with good academics. They are all right.”
But he’s got a special bond with Florida. His half-brother Jaylen is a true freshman cornerback for the Gators, and Sammy said reuniting with Jaylen would be nice, but he’s still got to make the right decision for himself.
“My brother is over there, but at the same time I have to choose the place where I want to go, but I like them,” he said. “I’ve visited there and it’s pretty close to home, so they’re looking pretty good.”
All that said, Watkins' Michigan Spring Game experience was clearly very positive and has put the Wolverines on his short list. Here's hoping he follows in the footsteps of the greatest Michigan WR of all time (and fellow Floridian).
