And thankfully for the sophomoric-minded among us, we can transfer bad junior high puns from (Michael) Cox to (Jake) Butt.
I hope it works out for him. You never like to see guys transfer, but I'm sure everyone can agree that being a spectator on the sidelines during your career has to be challenging. Hopefully Mike can get the bulk of the carries at UMass.
Might have missed this earlier, but can someone enlighten me on how Cox is going to be eligible this season? If Umass is playing in the MAC this season, then he would be transferring within FBS football (one year sit out period).
I understand that he can go the graduate school route and take a major that "is not offered." I just have a hard time believing that he can somehow find a decent grad school program that Umass has that Michigan doesn't offer?
I think that these transfers are just transfers for football and the kids just take whatever. Many of them only need to go to class one semester. They can then move on. To that reason it is a bit of a shame. Will be interesting to see over time how. Many of such transfers actually get a masters. The cynic in me says that Russell Wilson will not get a masters degree from Wisconsin. Perhaps if enrolls in the summer at UMASS he can get around the FBS rule.
Good move for him. Back to his home state and should get some playing time. Hopefully starting right away, against us.
I might have to go to some ZooMass games in the fall.
...except on September 15th, of course.
