So, it's the day after the Shafer fiasco, and then it dawned on me - "Oh shit! Is Graham going to bolt for the NFL?" I would think the possible turmoil, the changing schemes again, etc., could affect his decision. What do you think?
Is Graham going to leave now?
We already know he's not a fan of 3 man fronts. If the new DC installs that type of system, that can't bode well. On the other hand, his reasons for staying seems to be scheme-unrelated (wanting to get a degree, help out the younger players, be a leader, etc).
NO. He has already promised to stay numerous times to people within the program, i.e. coaches and players. Also, he stated at the Bust that he would be back. Oh, and his mom is making him come back to get his degree.
Right, but I could understand him changing his mind if a 3-3-5 DC is hired. I wouldn't be happy, but it's certainly fair for him to re-evaluate if a system change is going to occur.
his mother has a strong backhand so i still think he stays.
I met his parents before a game (they were wearing his jersey ... I congratulated them on producing a great athlete, blah blah). Far as I could tell, they are class acts. Doesn't surprise me in the least, that they'd make sure he gets his bona fide Meechigan edumucation.
When did our fan base become chicken little? Good God, wait and see how this works itself out before you have everyone leaving/decommitting.
I heard Rich Rodriguez is decommitting.
Rodriguez is decommitting.
Rodriguez lives in Michigan.
Dantonio is locking down the talent in Michigan.
Rodriguez is going to commit to MSU?
It's ok. With our newfound ability to recruit in the south, particularly Florida, we are pulling in much better talent than what is offered in state.
Besides, I don't even see his name on Rivals or Scout, so he just opened up a scholarship for some one else of value.
Well, he was a "meh" recruit anyway. Lacked top end speed. Afraid of competition. Not a real Michigan Man. Those Who Stay Will Be Champions!
And does this mean we'll take a run at Urban Meyer?
I don't doubt that. Dantonio OWNS this state now.
That sucks for him. That's like owning stock in Jenna Jameson - always going down.
