For all that's gone down, I'm glad he landed somewhere. Good luck Tate.
himself out. He really needed a redshirt year to settle down, who knows what he could have been if that would have been a possibility. We had no options when he enrolled, he competed hard for us and just didn't have the maturity. Hope this is a place he can stay to finish school.
He was the only option we had really, he was ready to come in and take some snaps. He (like most of the kids) probably needed a red-shirt year to adjust to everything.
Good Luck Tate.
Did they at least see his transcript yet?
Honestly, I almost would have wanted him to go to MSU. I would love watching the spin. That said, wouldn't wish that on him.
I don't want anyone I like to go to MSU. And I like Tate.
See ya Tate. We"ll always have Notre Dame..........
You say that in every single Tate thread.
And that annoys you why? Sorry that I still like the guy, remember all he did here over the past two years and wish him well.
It's fine that you still like the guy and remember all he did here -- I still think fondly of the beginning of 2009 because of him. I just think your one-liner is becoming quite overused.
I think you might be just slightly embelishing here. I went back and looked at two months worth of my comments (I don't commit them all to memory I must confess) and found exactly one "pro-tate" comment where i said something similiar to the above but by no means exactly the same.
Either way I am happy for him and hope he does well at San Jose.
We'll always have Notre Dame...
Pretty appropriate, actually, when Tate's story itself is like an old refrain. At least the kid keeps trying, and we keep wishing him well. Hope this time it takes, and we can sing him a congratulatory coda.
You are a douchebag.You remember his prior posts,word for word?Get a life.
I'm gonna go with...We'll always have Illinois, since he performed admirably and that was my first trip to the Big House (I'm from Columbus). Definitely wish him the best at SJSU.
sitting alone on the bench with a towel on his head. We got the whole package, the good and the bad.
Created his OWN twitter account, huh? Outgrew the family-shared, presser-producing QBForce handle?
hope he's done some maturing and is ready to take on the new challenges that lie ahead, such as being polite and getting to know teammates
Hopefully they're a good fit for him. I don't know much about them, but I hope he can get his act together and succeed to his potential
SJST was 1-12 last year, so he should get some PT.
be keeping an eye out for San Jose this year. I wish Tate well, and hope he finds a home with the Spartans.
I am glad to see him land somewhere and I am hoping he buys into the whole 'university education' concept.
They're called the "Spartans" ... I hardly suspect that they will place a lot of emphasis on their football players getting a university education.
Every school named "spartan" doesn't have a bunch of dumbasses. I hope SJSU players are at least getting an education. They sure aren't winning football games.
I hope he is successful on and off the field. Good luck little man tate!
Too bad he has to sit out one year per NCAA rules, it would have been interesting to see play against Michigan this year. Despite his flakiness in recent past, I think still has good potential as a QB, and hope he can turn his career around at SDSU.
SDSU does not equal SJSU
I still think it would have been cool if he wound up at SDSU.
Oh well, SJSU it is.
We don't play San Jose State bro
He enrolled at San Jose State not San Diego State.
Sorry for mistaking SJSU for SDSU, my fault!
You were just subjected to the biggest case of "correction overkill" that I've witnessed on the Board in a long time. I apologize for those who felt the need to correct you more than the first 1-2 responses to your post.
C'mon people. Settle down.
Yeah man! What's wrong with you?! Don't you know you're not allowed to make mistakes?
...hope he gets his act together. Best of luck.
We all want you to succeed. Just get your butt in a classroom once in a while. You can play the game.
There are only two starting qb's in the NFL who are 6-0: Drew Brees and Michael Vick.
Not saying it can't happen, but you need a backup plan.
Go to class.
SJSU plays a pretty tough nonconference schedule. Played Bama and Wisconsin last year plus Boise in conference. Dont know who they got in 2012 but Tate better be prepared, hopefully a year sitting out will help
Best of luck to you. You've shown those flashes enough to show that you can do this thing! Now go get yourself some wins and a some fish tacos!
@Tforcier4 Tate Forcier @TreezyUM12 thanks treezy. You still my favorite reciever
I guess he didn't put a lot of time into schoolwork during 4th grade, either.
It's twitter bro. Relax.
Tate's spelling and grammar is no worse than half the commenters on MGoBlog.
Its expeshially mean for you 2 say that.
Me Gun spel goode. Y u mke fun off me?
Or maybe it's an inside joke for him to talk like that because that's how roundtree talks when he's not in frnot a camera. It's one thing to criticize grammar here. But someone's twitter comments? Really? #getalife
grammar != spelling
I wish him the best. If others don't, too, then whatever. Kindness can't be everyone's thing.
Glad to see he landed somewhere at last. Hopefully he will realize how lucky he is to be able to earn a college degree while still playing the game he loves. I hope he makes the best out of this second chance.
'09 ND game / South Endzone in the last 90 seconds / still my favorite Big House Memory.
Thanks Tater and good luck to you!
GBOD . . . .
Definitely glad he ended up somewhere. Through his tweets, he's definitely still a big UofM fan and wishing the guys the best of luck. He's hoping you finish what you started at SJSU. Wish nothing but success towards the kid.
Thanks for the memories and the autograph after the 09 EMU game. This guy named Jeff Garcia also played at SJSU and he turned out alright...
A qb Tate could emulate.
Congrats Tate, do your homework this time.
is a damn good football player. Not everyone is ready for college when they are 18. Hopefully he learns and grows and wins some games out west. Thanks for the memories Tate!!
How much his home schooling prepared him for the University of Michigan. I would guess he was in over his head from the get go.
I knew a couple homeschooled kids who did just fine, better than most, in fact. I think maturity & discipline had more to do with things than homeschooling.
This seems to be constantly brought up by people here for some reason. Both myself and my younger brother were home schooled for the entirety of high school. I ended up an MD(from UofM) and he's currently on his last year of Yale law.
Our parents realized they could maximize our intellectual potential from home rather than sending us to high schools that are geared towards students of average mental capacity.
Yeah, but Tate's homeschooling appeared to be dictated by his obsessed father and seemed to have one core course, ie advanced quarterback.
always really liked Tate. I remember how ecstatic I was when he showed up in the spring of 09 and really impressed. He seems like a great guy with a few issues to work out, not unlike a lot of people at that age group. I sincerely wish him all the best and hope he has nothing but success at SJSU.
I hope Forcier gets it together and has a great life. The alternative is becoming a walking version of the old song, "Do You Know the Way to San Jose."
He's in a great position: fairly close to home against inferior competition in a state that really wants people on any kind of scholly to graduate. I'm sure he would rather be in Hawaii surrounded by island girls, but he will probably still have plenty of fun in San Jose, too.
Seriously though. I wish him luck. He's a hell of a QB, just needs to work on academics.
Should be good for him to be geographically close to his family too. I remember that being at least the initial rationale for why things didn't work out with Miami (YTM), and then bizarrely hearing that he was considering Hawaii (obviously without reciprocity)... which I'm pretty sure is quite a ways off the West Coast too. His dad always seemed to be a positive influence on him, encouraging him to stick with the program and keep his ego in check after Denard started being Denard and TF had to sit the bench.
This is your second shot, Tate. Take advantage of it. Good luck.
If i never reead a post about this guy on this site again, that would be just fine. I wish him ell and all, but the dramatic saga must come to an end. BTW - i doubt he finishes his carrer there. Just sayin.
He would have to redshirt no matter what.
Wolverman is right.
... but for me, the best Tater memory was a few weeks later against MSU. When he basically single-handedly willed the team the length of the field to the tying touchdown, injured, exhausted, and in a monsoon, that did it for me. Michigan Man forever as far as I'm concerned. Wish he'd been a better student.
in the sense that all the issues with academics and playing time seemed to never affect his performance too much on the field. Regardless of what Forcier does now, I'll always remember that comeback he led against Notre Dame and wish him well.
Now allow for this experience to *humble* you. A stronger person will emerge;in fact,a*shock the world*moment could be yours.. I will be pulling for you Tater.
Go Tate! I'll always root for you, and will never forget the way you played your heart out against ND, Illinois, and in other games.
I was hoping the athletic department would relent and allow you to rejoin the team, but alas, it didn't.
Best of luck!
Loved what he did in a few games for Michigan. Sad ending to his story at Michigan. Good Luck kid.
I have it from a source inside the SJSU AD that Tate Forcier is no longer enrolled at the school. He is, as a result no longer part of the football team.
I don't want to get too much into what he did (or didn't do) at SJSU that led to this, but the same problems that haunted Tate at UM seem to have followed him to SJSU and their head coach was having nothing of it.
Sad to see Tate go this route again...really want to see this kid get the chance to succeed.
