Although it does suck that Vlad Emilien has decided to transfer from a position that seems like no one wants to play we should not be worried so much by the depth but more about the APR.
If you look in hindsight, would Vlad had been a great football player if he couldn't start on the two worst defenses in Michigan Football history? Losing him undoubtedly hurts depth on a insanely flimsy position but with him being on the field would he have been a good player? If I am correct, Vlad only played when Michigan was up by twenty in the last minutes of the UConn game. Maybe his knee injury is the reason why he couldn't beat out a converted WR and a walk-on. Yes, Jared Van Slyke is out for the whole year which is the reason why Vlad's decision to transfer is so mind-boggling. This could bring the emergence of Marvin Robinson who may end up playing better than Vlad Emilien could.
The APR issue is the one that's worrying me. How many transfers can Michigan handle before we finally go below that "mendoza line"?
Let's move on from Emilien transferring and focus once again on the football season.
