You make the biggest decision of your life on national signing day, making the difficult decision to spend the next four years of your life far away from Florida. Excited to be a part of the Michigan family, you might even be watching Coach Rod's press conference, only to see the main focus of the Q/A portion turn into an argument that you don't in fact belong at Michigan. These people you haven't met before are telling your coach that you are a bad person and that they don't want a part of you. You are labeled as a "risk." What was supposed to be a celebration of you joining your future team has turned into a nightmare.
Now the day after, you have to hear every local sports talk station reliving yesterday's nightmare. Drew Sharp is making jokes about you running from the police, suggesting that you are a thug with no choice outside a life of organized crime. State newspapers are criticizing you and your coach, arguing that you don't belong. Everyone is bringing up and scrutinizing your lowest lows. You haven't been interviewed. You haven't been asked about them. In fact, no one close to the situation has. You've only been forced to relive some of the worst times in your life where every detail from an event two years ago has been picked apart and brought under the microscope. Cant wait to get to Ann Arbor in June, eh?
Lets just say the past two days in Demar Dorsey's shoes probably haven't been how he imagined them. Who would expect to have their biggest life decision to date come back as a reminder of when they got caught with the wrong crowd two years ago. This isn't how you treat your team. This isn't supporting your program.
Now, Michigan fans. This kid is now a part of our family. Lets start treating him like it.
*edit: This information is behind a paywall, but I will summarize, Dorsey and his parents know about the media scrutiny going on and are very unhappy.
