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?
I just went over to tRCMB and they are mentioning some kind of family hardship waiver that allows a player to transfer without sitting out.

Transfers do not count against the 25-scholarship limit for a recruiting class.
However, he would count against the 85-scholarship limit for the team in 2012, even if he's sitting out the season due to transfer rules.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
So numbers-wise we would be in good shape, yeah?
Well, if I'm doing the numbers right, it would mean we would have to lose someone else to attrition...or we would have to sign one fewer recruit in February.
Is that assuming we give T-Rob and Cox the "thanks for a great four years" convo?
EDIT: I just counted for myself, and assuming Terrence Robinson and Mike Cox don't come back, we have exactly 85 guys if this class is 28.
Now, the chances of at least one guy currently on the team bailing before fall or one guy from this class not making it for one reason or another is very high, so we should be in good shape to take him if that works out.
Actually, I have no inside information, so the title should read: we should ask Terrance Robinson back. Having a special teams all-star is always useful. He's not Steve Tasker yet, but getting there.
Cox, on the other hand, maybe not. Given his HS background, he shouldn't need the fifth year to graduate either.
assuming we lose someone else to attrition or ask another 5th year (besides Cox and T-Rob) not to come back, it sounds like we would have room for Arnett and a 28 man class. It sounds worth it to me, especially if Arnett gets a hardship exemption to play next year.
From what I have read on the Rival's board, it sounds like Shane is already recruiting him hard.
Also TomVH/cup cake, has been mentioning his name for about a weekish now. If we have a spot, there is mutual interest.

I am drunk, or I wouldn't be talking to you.
Wow is it great to have a recruiter like Shane locked up already. These rumors came out, no doubt the coaches knew about it and told Shane, and the same day he's in Arnett's ear with tweets like that. He must be a huge tool for our class.
COYS and lets go Detroit FC!
How dare you call Shane Morris a huge tool.
How dare you talk about Shane's tool.
What did you say about Jon Shaw?
This place smells like despair.
Tool is coming to the Palace?
They no longer call me Bisbiño
Ah Festivus, how I miss you already. Only about a year left.
Here's hoping for a bright future. This team does try hard and I will continue to support them.
So if Shane pans out on his potential in college, has social media allowed him to be the most valuable Wolverine of all time?
We're not even sure if THIS coaching staff is interested in him. It was Rich Rodriguez that recruited him, although it seems fairly logical to assume we would have interest.
If Shane Morris is tweeting about him, that's a pretty strong sign the staff is considering him.
Where is Sparty gloating about him being a "lock"? I haven't seen or heard anything like that. I thought he liked them before going to UT but would that have carried over? Could things have changed since? I'd say UM has just as good a shot.
In 2009, Broderick Green transferred from USC to Arkansas to be with his ailing grandmother in Little Rock. He received a waiver from the NCAA that allowed him to be eligible without sitting out a year.

inquires about his services. If he interested then lets findout his interest before shutting it down!
Lucky enough to have my own JT wristband!!
Can't we just pull an Urban and claim a medical waiver off some kid to make room for Arnett?
Where is Shawn Conway at nowadays?

Sorry to venture off topic, but what's the word with Zettel?
I'd rather have a stud wide receiver than an uninspiring tight end. I'd rather we get the best players available and not just add a TE for the sake of it.

Arnett would be sitting due to transfer rules! He doesn't HAVE to count against the recruiting scholarships for THIS year at all.
Getting Arnett doesn't mean we don't recruit another TE or anything of the sort.
And what's up with the "uninspiring TE"...I can't stand all of these star gazers! Give me a 6'6 target like Sam Grant ANY day. Do you SEE what we have at TE next year?! We have Brandon Moore who's most famous for missing the block against MSU on 4th and 1 that led to Denard getting destroyed. We have Rico Miller who hasn't played over Moore (who went from awful to "just bad") this year or Steve Watson who wins the James Rogers Award for playing 19 positions and never complaining once.
Then in this class we have Devin Funchess who is a pass catching threat and a TE/WR...not a blocking TE or even a balanced TE like Koger. And we have AJ Williams who many think is playing on the OL starting next year.
We NEED another TE in this class. Not only for next year, but for down the road when Shane Morris is the QB and the offense uses more TE's rather than slot's like Gallon, Grady, Odoms, etc. who will all be gone.
This "we don't need a TE" stuff has to stop. This bashing Sam Grant. This bashing the thought that ANY sleeper or 3-star TE (or player) is uninspiring has to stop as well.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
I'm not saying that Sam Grant is bad, but I'm trying to understand why we need 1. Don't we have 3 scholarship TEs already? The same amount of scholarship quarterbacks on our team.
Well, you often play more than one TE at a time, but you only play one QB at a time. That is one difference.......
Exactly. Additionally, none of the ones we have (or will have) are proven, so whereas we won't need all of them, having a few extras make it more likely we find one or two good ones. Also, different tight ends might play in different situations.
Gorgeous Borges might disagree with only playing one QB at a time.
Tradition is something you can't bottle. But it is there to sustain you when you need it most. I've called upon it time and time again.
I'm now repeating what's been said...but #1, in the offense we're trying to run in the future, 3 will not be enough. Especially when one of them is a RS Senior.
Also, you have 3, and not ONE of them has done a thing. I already talked about Moore, Miller and Funchess.
Lastly, how do I get negged when I'm not flamming at all and my post sparked 4-5 insightful comments? What I said was the truth and it got defended by multiple posters. Someone care to explain?
If he's transferring to be closer to his sick father then the NCAA can/will grant a waiver.
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
Actually he would count against the 85 player limit even though he may possibly sit out next year. It seems they will seek the waiver to play next year though because he is moving home because his father's health is declining.
Well said. Are there any more Gronkowski brothers left?
Did anyone else notice that Josh Garnett tweeted the fourth team on his list is Slippery Rock. I know he's kidding but still, this has to be good for us
Eh, I suppose I wouldn't mind him.
(Just kidding, he's #1 on my wishlist.)
Arnett and Burbridge.......
Blake Countess and Terry Richardson would like to have a chat with you.
Yes, but...who will throw to them with no more Kirk?
If Arnett wants to go to BCS games andplay in the NFL, he'd go to Michigan.
NFL, not necessarily, MSU has churned out a pretty decent amount of NFL receivers
From convos with him he really wants the absolute top talent especially at WR.
tmcnamara88 Taylor McNamara
McNamara was off the radar weeks ago...we had been completely dropped. I believe due to early enrollee issues. He only had one last visit to take anyway.
Grant is the #1 TE recruit right now as those Pharoah Brown rumors were shot down as well.
plays at Butte College in California.
Aaron Rodgers played for and yes the QB for the packers. I played against him when I was at Santa Rosa JC. He was a stud then too. But Shawn won't be coming back to AA because the units won't transfer over.
