this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Now that Tate is ineligible to play in the bowl, who is our backup QB? Would it be Gardner, even though he's trying to get a medical red shirt? Who else do we have at QB?
So rumor has it that RR may be heading to Maryland. This is most likely the case if he were to get fired from Michigan. I can't see RR leaving Michigan for Maryland if DB gives him a vote of confidence, but we'll see.
Sorry if this has already been posted, haven't seen it on the board.
..but the thread was blown up by a ridiculous 'I know you are, but what am I?' argument. I thought some of us might want to actually comment on this development. Here I go:
I think Tate should be suspended indefinitely. This leaves me to truly wonder now if Tate does plan to transfer, blew off the class(es) he doesn't like, and gladly took the free trip to Florida. And the consequences? It is more likely than not that DR will have to sit out a few plays during the bowl game, which means DG comes in and burns his redshirt. That would be a significant blow to the future continuity of this program...
I spoke with Cali WR Devin Lucien (6'1", 180 lbs, 4 Star) today, and he has set his decision date for January 30th at his high school. We talked about all the schools that are left, and Michigan is in excellent position. He says it's down to Michigan, UCLA, Kentucky, ASU, and Colorado.
A positive for Michigan here is that he and his family are not concerned so much with who the coach will be, but more so if his scholarship offer will still be honored if there is a new coach. His family sees the value of a Michigan education and what the program has to offer. Lucien will be visiting next weekend on the 7th as well.
