I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
But I would prefer to just continue calling him Fuck Face.
Darryl Bonum look a little too risque?
We should all neg you for not going with "Bonum"--you denied us a chance to snicker like the 5th graders we are at heart.
I think I'll name my next dog Devin Barkner.
Not bad. Almost as good as that guy who named his fish Deshawn Swims.
Knew we couldn't be lucky enough for it to be Brandon.
To whomever it is. I am not going to fault a kid for transferring if they (1) are homesick, (2) simply don't love Michigan, (3) can't hack the academica, or even (4) don't want to play for a coach that they didn't commit to (any may not have wanted to) play for. The only transfers that I have been personally offended by were Borin (because of the whole family values thing, and dude, if you are going to transfer, how could you go to Buckey) and Toney Clemens (dead to me).
If the speculation on this board is correct, and it is Brown, we will be fine. We have a TON of young talent at this position (DB) already, and as a low-rated 3* who, per scounting reports, needs to both add size and work on technique, he wasn't going to see the field in 2011 or 2012. Remeber, we return our entire secondary (T-Wolf, Avery, T. Talbott, Floyd) except for Rogers, and add Countess, who was likely way more field ready. We will be fine.
Was dead to me, but he did rescind his comments and defend coach Rodriguez later, so now he's just another college football player. He might as well have never worn a winged helmet.
I wasn't aware that Toney had rescinded his comments and defended RR. That's interesting. Where did you hear that and when did it happen?
If this is true, then Toney will be first person to come back to life after being dead to me, and I will take your approach that he is just another college fb player about whom I do not care.
where have you been?
The APR policy has only been around a few years. You'll see some sanctions dished out in the coming years.
..then I am ok with it. Don't get me wrong I would love the kid blue, I liked his attitude toward continuing tradition, but we have a bunch of young Db's from lsat year who got valueable game experience. (No they didn't look all the great, but there were some bright spots through out the season, add that to the new 4-3 and coach them up with mattison and Hoke). And we have 3 Solid Db's for this class in Countess Howell and probably Taylor.
If he wants to transfer, best of luck to him where ever he goes, but realistically we could use that scholarship for this monster midwest class were about to bring in, that Hoke is already hitting hard and will only get better when we win some games next season.
I heard that Countess Howell guy is a stud.
..being the only early enrollee. We don't know for sure if it's him though. Hate to just throw names out there but what about T. Jones? I know he switched positions once or twice but I can't recall if he's in the secondary or backfield at this point.
he's back at RB, could be wrong though
this is nearly as big of a loss as everyone thinks it is if it's Greg Brown. I just watched his senior film and i think he is mediocre at best and would have a hard time finding the field
well said indeed.
I hate to see any player go, but they need to do what is best for them. I hope whoever it is sticks it out and sees what happens, but you never know. Good luck to the player no matter what he does.
Since Brown hasn't even had a spring practice yet, how would anybody know he's a "reserve?" Is it possible that it's somebody else on the squad who's already been here a year or more? This is notwithstanding Koger's tweet, which certainly points to Brown...
was that the guy isn't Brown.
I think it's funny that anyone could be called a "reserve guy." Every defensive back on the roster played last year - Talbott, Christian, Johnson, Vinopal, Avery, etc.
QUICK WRITE ANOTHER POST SPECULATING ABOUT 2012 SCHOLARSHIP NUMBERS AND WHO MICHIGAN IS GOING TO SIGN. THERE'S ONLY 11+ MONTHS UNTIL SIGNING DAY 2012.
we have all 85 spots used up this year, 15 scholarship seniors leaving, and 2 redshirt juniors who might not get 5th years (T. Rob and M. Cox). That would be 17, plus attrition (this post seems to indicate 1 extra spot)...that is room for 18 now.
Does Hoke have enough time to put together a good recruiting class with signing day only 359 days away?
Anyone know how many scholies Miami still has?
If it is Greg Brown, I'm not completely shocked. Much like Austin White, Brown had some rumors of character issues floating around. If he transfers prior to his freshman year, then that only solidifies the similarity to White.
Also, I'm not impressed with Brown's talents, anyway. He could end up being a decent player down the road, but an early offer for a player like that really boggled my mind.
...but that said, Brown is the guy whose loss is least likely to affect us any time soon. He was not going to play early, and we now have significant depth in the defensive backfield.
Does it really make sense for someone to look at the depth chart now and assume you're not getting any PT? Holy cats, we practically had "hey you in row 21, come down here and cover" last year...
Chuck Norris says, stay your ass in school. !
Is he transfering to Miami? Someone needs to put Al Golden in a head lock and......
Sam indicated that the kid was not one you have seen on the football field a lot, indicating that we have seen him... some.
This would not be Brown...
Back to your regularly scheduled wild @ss speculation...
Didn't want to bring this up on its own thread a week ago when I heard it because it's not official, but my friend is dating Brandon Moore and she says Talbott is gone. If it's true, I hope this is the guy Webb is talking about, and not someone else in addition to him.
This shit is priceless. Anonymous player with questionable morals and wandering eye, may or may not leave program, but whatever, in any case we wish him the best on his possible sojourn
This is embarrassing. I hope Greg Brown or any of his family aren't reading the board. Shameful really.
it is pathetic to see grown men trashing our own players saying we didn't need them anyway. I mean all the kid did was give up a few of the best months of his life to become a part of this program
Terrance Talbott is gone.
I've got you covered.
for him, good luck.
I'm hearing it's Talbott who's leaving....Terrence Talbott
