|1 day 18 hours ago||If you omitted the words||
"has appeared in over 20 games without having much impact", you might have had a better chance of swaying my opinion.
|1 day 18 hours ago||In the Hatch case,||
he was in agreement with the decision to medical. He had achieved his goal of playing for Michigan and knew he would not reach his former level of play. Other athletes have disagreement with the coach and feel that they can play and are getting cut to further the coach's agenda.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Well this thread is going||
Well this thread is going well.
|2 days 9 hours ago||To borrow a phrase from Johm McEnroe.||
You cannot be serious.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Agree. Same point I made earlier.||
Coaches take players all the time that don't pan out. They don't see the field enough to contribute. Should the coach be able to cut that player because they aren't good enough? Or only if you can blame it on an injury?
And isn't it a bit of a contradiction to say that this player isn't well enough to play, but we will approve his transfer so that he can play for someone else.
|2 days 12 hours ago||If you make this kind of post||
without knowing any details, you deserve any negative feedback that you get.
You could have just asked if anyone knew any of the details, without implying that JB had done anything wrong.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Maybe Sam Webb.||
Maybe Sam Webb.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Yes, but who gets to decide||
if the player is able to perform up to expectations, you or Saban? See the problem with your reasoning?
|2 days 15 hours ago||I agree with alum96.||
The OP seems to be placing most of the emphasis on productivity. I think that if a player is able to participate and wants to play, the school is obligated to let him (assuming it is not life threatening or would result in paralysis). If he wants to put his shoulder, knee, ankle, etc. at risk, that is his call. Is this any different than taking a flyer with a 2 star player that doesn't pan out. After a couple of years you realize he will never be more than a 25 catch per season WR, but you have no easy way to cut him.
If I were the coach in this hypothetical situation and was only concerned about the players health, I would do everything to convince the player AND his parents to take the medical, including telling him he will never see the field. If he wants to transfer, I would approve it to ANY school, even a rival. But, if the player wants to remain on the team and try to help his teammates, I would honor the scholarship.

A boxer is usually unable to protect himself and could risk a fatal injury. Not likely to be an issue with a knee injury in football.
|3 days 8 hours ago||To be fair to Pipkins, his only comment||
about the NFL in the ESPN article was:
|3 days 13 hours ago||Well., I suppose that it is nice||
that Morgan's 13 word tweet has cleared everything up for some of you, but it sheds no new light on the issue for me (assuming that it is even about Pipkins).
|4 days 9 hours ago||You could have posted this same||
comment to most of the earlier post in this thread, but you didn't.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Avatar fix||
Harbaugh needs a pipe and a sailor hat.
|5 days 18 hours ago||GOLF||
|5 days 18 hours ago||I thought this thread was going to be||
about point shaving.
|5 days 19 hours ago||How could anyone else||
even be considered?
|1 week 3 hours ago||There are some excellent non-dairy||
ice creams on the market and more coming, including one from Ben & Jerry's.
|1 week 1 day ago||Well, it could be as simple||
as, I don't think we will beat this team today. Maybe the other team was throwing their ace or maybe his team was throwing their #4 pitcher, or maybe they were traveling the day before or had a late night game. There could be any number of legitimate reasons.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't agree||
with your logic.
|1 week 1 day ago||I have a golf game planned||
for this afternoon. If there must be storms, make them late afternoon.
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't know, if you listen to a lot||
of the posters on this board, we have one quality QB in Rudock and not much behind him. Morris is number 2 and he isn't any good.
|1 week 2 days ago||We are all Michigan fans.||
We shouldn't care so much who the starter is, just that we have someone who can get the job done.
|1 week 2 days ago||Karan Higdon choosing to||
get up at 4:00 AM everyday to work out is impressive. I like this kid.
|1 week 3 days ago||Well, Rudock has been||
beaten out before.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think Harbaugh said something like||
We don't want to talk it, we want to be it.
|1 week 3 days ago||Actually, coming out of the spring game||
Harbaugh said that Shane was the leader, so..
|1 week 3 days ago||You should re read his comment.||
He is saying that it is okay to think it, but not say it out loud.
|1 week 3 days ago||How many did Rudock lead in||
his first two starts? And how good was his team compared to Shane's?
