I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Has Nick Sheridan received a scholarship yet? Even if he hasn't been named a starter, I'd think that you'd want our top three QBs to all be on scholarship.
but why would we give him one? There's almost no chance he starts, and by next year you'll need mining equipment to find him on the depth chart. Seems like a waste of a scholarship to me.

It seems like the right thing to do, if we're going to rely on him as a QB.
There's an NCAA bylaw allowing a non-scholarship player to transfer to a D1 school without having to sit a year, if his current school agrees. I suppose they could be withholding a scholarship if he's hoping to do that once he sinks in the depth chart next year, but that sounds like a long shot.
At this time there is little reason to give him a scholarship. He seems to be committed for the 2008 season. If he develops into a productive player, he will likely get one following the season. If he never sees the field for a meaningful snap and there appears to be zero likelihood of that changing in 2009, he won't get one. This season is make or break for his scholarship aspirations.
Go Blue!! Viva La Revolucion!!
My understanding is that he's a "former" walk-on, which I guess would imply he's on scholarship now.
...and by that, I mean helter-skelter, willy-nilly and putt-putt!
just means that he made the team
No, it means he's now on scholarship. If he's paying his own way, he's still a walk-on.
Perhaps Sheridan covets the more important thing Michigan can give him: an education. Most of these kids know they'll never play in the NFL, so they take advantage of the education Michigan provides. I don't know why people ignore this aspect. David Cone will never play, but I'm sure he'll stick around until he graduates. A Michigan degree goes very far.
Ever since there has been talk of a recruiting numbers crunch for this year, people are starting to talk about who shouldn't have a scholarship anymore or who should transfer to clear room for new recruits. This kind of talk is very disappointing. I don't want Michigan fans to become like Alabama fans who were pretty much rooting for kids to get in trouble, fail out, or transfer to clear room for their new recruiting class. I would hope posters on this board would be more respectful of our football players.
Michigan had, as I recall, 83 on scholarship before the loss of [I can't remember his name - the fuck-lion guy]. I think it is common practice to give a 1 yr. to the top walk-ons to reach 85.
So Sheridan very well may be on scholarship this year, but next year and beyond is another matter.
