Former Michigan RB target Ty Isaac suffered a shoulder injury tonight in the opener as his #10 Joliet Catholic team lost to Catholic League rival Providence. An MRI looks to scheduled for next week.
OT: Ty Isaac suffers shoulder injury in opener
Never want to see a young man get injured, even if he chose a different school. Let's hope it's not too serious and he starts his recovery soon.
Too bad for the kid hopefully its not too serious.
Just seems to be the next logical question.....
He only told them that he would consider Iowa. AIRBHG was not amused.
Hope it's not serious, sucks that it happened the first game of his final hs season
I wonder if that D-bag Kiffin will pull his offer if it's serious.
of course he will. He just pulled 3 former walk ons scholarships the other day to make room for new recruits.
although i think they will pull massington's scholarship before they would isaac. he tore his acl and will miss the whole senior season and he struggled at the opening. who knows maybe he will pull both, he's a douche.
He didnt pull anything. Two of them will certainly be renewed. The last one will only not be renewed if THREE currently academically ineligble players ALL become eligible. And even if that happens, its still not 100% that it wouldn't still get renewed.
Ok so it might work out for the kids and they might get them back. It doesn't change the fact that he originally took away the kids' scholarships. I just think its a shitty move even if he just tenatively took them away. If he knew it would all work out why would he take away the 3 kids scholarships in the first place?
It just shows that he had no problem with dumping kids' scholarships that had earned them.
Once again, that is not a fact. For the second time, he did not pull anything. For the second time, they simply have not been renewed yet.
Considering their scholarship situation, and since this is pretty common practice, it is likely that they were told that the scholarships might not be renewed when they were given to them last year. But to be clear, thats just speculation on my part, I would have to be a real douche to come on here and make definitive claims that werent true
He absolutely pulled them. Its not that he just hadn't renewed them yet. They had been renewed July 1st. Players have to be notified by july 1st whether they are going to be renewed. Obviously they had been renewed and then he pulled them and now he might give them back.
No, they were not renewed. Thats why it was news then, and the only reason it was news again was that kiffin confirmed it and it was reported as them being "pulled," when in fact nothing had changed. And looking a little further into this, it appears that these kids knew this was the situation last year when they were put on scholarship, and all of them will end up getting renewed
The more i think about it the more i believe you are correct. I suspect he told the players he would plan on renewing them if things worked out but didn't actually renew them yet. I think if he renewed them already he wouldn't be able to take them away until next year.
we dodged that bullet with him not committing... /s
This injury was obviously due to his upright running style.
Fred Jackson: "He runs like a combination runaway beer truck and emergency vehicle on the way to a fire but his pad level is higher than Manute Bol".
With all do respect. This doesn't need to be here...
He put OT in the title. Not everyone gives a shit about the Tigers and Lions but they show up every day. Don't click on it.
Due respect. Like respect that is deserved. Or dues. You know (or not, apparently) money that is owed for goods or services?
Note to self: don't Mgoblog while wasted. I should probably lose my phone when I'm drinking too. Major damage control this morning.
Regardless of where he was bound, you especially hate to see kids go down to injuries that could potentially keep them out of commission a while such as a possible fracture in the shoulder (MRI results pending, of course, per the story). Hopefully, there is no structural issue and he is back with his team sooner rather than later.
I assume you made the exact same observation about The Count's passing. And on all the Friday Night What Are You Drinking threads. And on every post about the Tigers and Red Wings and probably half of all the other posted comments during the off-season, because every damn one of those has LESS to do with Michigan sports than an article about a highly-sought after football recruit that the vast majority of us were hoping if not praying would commit to Michigan.
Separated shoulder, out 6-12 weeks. Too bad for the kid.
Yuck. Hopefully his AC joint will stabilize without surgery.
Sucks that he may miss his entire senior year. The kind of contact a RB gets, though, better safe than sorry.
I classify posts like this with the useless non-UMich obituaries. It's not Ty Issac is off-topic; rather, it's the idea that no interesting discussion can be expected to occur (other than silly Kiffin remarks). What's anyone supposed to say other than "Sucks ... hope the kid gets better?" It doesn't have enough value as pure news, either, IMO.
I don't generally consider the (Detroit, not LSU) Tigers on-topic and I wish there were fewer posts about them, but at least something like "Is Verlander having his best/worst month?" is a topic where you could expect to see a diverse set of responses. This post, not so much ...
I just discovered the damnedest thing. When scrolling through the board posts, If my thumb doesn't press the title of a post I don't have to read it. This just changed my life!
You're wrong. Isaac was a main target and a primary subject of conversation here for months. I'd hazard that many or most readers were interested to hear this news.
I hope he gets better in 5 years and enjoys free college and hot chicks. These kids are so lucky. People act like he was stricken with a brain tumor.
So, I see they've decided to complety rip off Odoms' EATIN' idea.
that laid the wood on him to blow out the shoulder?
Feel sorry for the kid, but he might still get back by playoff time. Seriously if you are the school that gets him, this is not necessarily a bad thing. It will save on a lot of pounding. A guy like this probably gets 30 touches a game and teams are surely gunning for him.
You know he'll be working like a mad man on his conditioning too.
USC got themselves a stud.
Yeah, there's much less chance that he'll take some hit and get his shoulder seperated now. It's a win win!
