I know this is one of many Tate posts now but I no longer see Tate's name on the student directory for Michigan. Hopefully, this was not asked already as I did not read through the 240+ comments on the previous Tate post. Any rumors on him no longer being at Michigan?
Tate still at Michigan?
I take it you are a student?
If he were no longer a student, they would have removed his name from the roster. He's still there.
Per Angelique's Twitter:
"Two sources told me Forcier has flown back to Ann Arbor. His permanent status w the team remains unclear.."
Uh oh, Denard's not in there either! We're screwed! ;)
Denard actually is....
Guess I should've searched for his whole name. He didn't come up for just "Denard".
Denard X. Robinson. How cool is that?!
You gave a link to the entire directory. I just typed in my current favorite player, a mustachioed gentleman, and got his email, phone, cell phone, and address. Mods, can we get rid of this?
I know there are lots of students here, but I don't think MGoBlog should publish it.
It's not hard to access the directory. It's right on the UMich homepage.
If you are worried about your friend, you maybe should ask him to hide some of his info.
I don't know any of them, it just seems like it's inviting stupidity. I know you aren't doing it to let peoples' info out.
Like he said, it's a public directory. He's not giving access to a student access only directory.
At least it's better than MSU.
In their directory, without the student's permission, it publishes their home address and phone number which could be a cell # if that's what the student uses
Seconded, this seems like a bad idea.
I agree with Zone Left and why this information can be on a public site - especially one run by a public university - is incredibly stupid. This information should be kept confidential and not available to even students.
You have the ability to edit your information on the student directory, and even make your entry unsearchable.
This is nothing new.
Yes, but a lot of students (probably the large majority) have no idea that their info is out there. You have to edit it to make your contact info private. That's backwards.
That is simply not true. Everyone knows about the directory.
every school that awards Title IV financial aid has to send a notice to every student enrolled that tells them what information the school considers "directory information" and how the student can restrict access to that information. It's in those emails we all got in college and immediately deleted without reading.
Which is exactly my point. That is ass backwards. If you want your information public you can make it so. Otherwise the information should be private.
Really? I remember learning about it in orientation in the late 90s. We had to add our favorite drink. I believe mine is still on there. You'd think with students allowed to choose their own uniqnames (I was told this is the case) they would have been taught even more about the system than we were.
Exactly. We were all well informed of the online directory, and we all tinkered with it quite a bit. The privacy rules changed halfway through my time in school, and we all tinkered with it again. You cannot argue with a straight face that the large majority of students don't know about it.
Hell, it's even printed in book form, when I was in school they were stacked in the dorm lobbies for the taking.
How else were you supposed to stalk the girls you met at a drunken party before facebook was invented? The print version of the freshman facebook only gets you so far. Only half the students even had cell phones and nobody was going to take a pen and paper out with them. Calling up the wrong Sarah Whateverthehellhernamewas to figure out which one was the girl you made out with at a random frat party was a rite of passage.
When the "Directory" was a little phone book they published every year.
I'm pretty sure it's still published. I was in a prof's office last school year and saw a 2009-10 UM directory on his desk.
Most schools have an online directory. We don't need to refrain from posting a link. It has been available to the world for many years.
Does this mean we can't link to www.umich.edu anymore? The directory is on the front page. I believe students now have the option of deleting your name from the directory. In my day, we could at least delete our address and phone number.
Fair enough. I'm not trying to attack anyone, I just wouldn't want my info out there. I forget that 19 year olds think a little differently about privacy than I do.
At first glance, I thought his email was "denardd."
that I just took a "walk" through Denard's neighborhood on Google Maps streetview?
Denard would have a Kinesiology major...he is, after all, a track star.
That's his name, you know.
The article on yahoo quotes him as saying that he needed to pass 14 credits and was taking 16 credits just in case. Perhaps they now have some easy two credit classes but in the past they were usually much harder to do well in (geology of national parks was actually pretty challenging). Otherwise, I'm not sure how he might pass half of the class if he was taking 4 for four credits. It's a bit odd that he's out of the directory completely at this time.
Either way, Denard will be fine.
1. Did you search Robert Forcier? 2. There are a ton of people not in it, like me!
Nice double board post.
It's all a conspiracy by the freep. Remember that long, positive Q&A article they did of him? It was all a set up so this shit could happen, and the freep could unleash hell about something else regarding the football program.
This is diary material.
D-Rod burned Devin Gardner's redshirt to teach tate a lesson.
Wow that shirt he has on is Amurrica-tastic.
he is on his way to another school. I hope I am wrong./
RR- Tate gone
JH - Tate stays
If you were Tate, and had a Heisman-caliber QB in front of you of the same class, and a QB that for a time was ahead of you on the depth chart, what would you do?
I don't hold it against players that transfer for arguably genuine football reasons. Tate has the talent to start somewhere else, and I would expect him to put that talent to use.
It's a "problem" of success for RichRod.
RichRod isn't in the directory either! REGIME CHANGE!!
Why didn't you say so?
