I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
While perusing another sports message board I frequent I came across a thread that states that Turner is not with the team and is considering a transfer. I don't have a scout or rivals account so this is from someone who does but its also from someone I trust.
Has anyone else heard anything about this? My understanding is that he may have been one of the out of shape RR was talking about the other day. Apparently his mom wants him to stay but it is not looking good.
I figure this community is best suited to get to the bottom of such rumors so I wanted to see what, if anything is up.
Posada to annouce at 5 today as per rivals.

ESPN posted their power rankings. Atleast Michigan got 1 vote!!!
As I soak in all the video and read all of the preseason publications I have come to the conclusion that the key to the 2010 offense is the running back position. I believe we are all excited about the quarterback situation- Tate and Denard have a world of potential, are a year older and experienced.
The offensive line is in the same situation- bigger, stronger and more experienced. Last year they struggled protecting Tate- he was flushed from the pocket too often and that led to some ill-advised throws aka turnovers. I am confident that they will be one of the top o-line groups in the big 10.
I am equally excited about the receivers. Hemingway was off to a great start last year until Mono shut him down. Roundtree is exciting as well and I see the tight end position playing a bigger role in the passing game this year.
As a high school coach for many years I have come to believe that you get ahead with the passing game but you win with the running game. There comes a point in every contest where you have to run the ball to win. My concern is simply this- Is there a 1000 yard running back on this roster? I am not specifically looking for a name- but is there that type of guy on the roster?
It is an obvious cliche for sure- will Michigan be successful enough running the football to win?
I know there were injuries at running back last year which hurt but Michigan was not very successful running the ball in conference. Is there a Mike Hart who will emerge out of nowhere and set this offense on fire?
Just my thoughts and ramblings- am interested in your thoughts.
Here's Doc saturday's write up. Nothing really new and pretty much Brian's take on the D, but one more thing to whet the appetite for UM football content!
