You really needed to start a thread over this? That's sad.

Only a matter of time before Bret Bielema returneth to the league.

Pulp Fiction is overrated, derivative, and often annoying.

Take a breath. That fans choose to skip a glorified practice means nothing. It's a PR event. Nothing more.

It's unfair because he's a freshmen, for crissake. Give the kid a little rope.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||That story makes zero sense.||
That story makes zero sense. Why would they offer then pull the offer almost immediately?

Maybe Bacon will again pad half the book with the probing insights of his barber.

Well, aside from the whole National Championship thing.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||But you could also reasonably||
But you could also reasonably assume that at least one QB will transfer once JH picks his starter.
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||Not really an issue. There||
Not really an issue. There will almost certainly be more attrition by the time spring practice is done. It's inevitable. And the coaches may already know of players planning to leave.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Hard to know from the||
Hard to know from the outside. Could be protecting against a potential transfer by one of the QBs who doesn't win the starting job. You never know. QBs transfer often.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||I think if most of us are||
I think if most of us are honest, yesterday did not live up to expectations. Not quite anyway. M whiffed on the marquee targets. Not Harbaugh's fault. But still.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Does anyone really think||
Does anyone really think wheatley's holding out until NSD only to bail on his father's team at the most visible moment? He's going to Michigan.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Oh come on. 99 percent of the||
Oh come on. 99 percent of the guys who claim to be torn know exactly what they're doing, and have know for a while.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Suppose it's also possible||
Suppose it's also possible that KH is waiting on weber. He could be M's backup plan.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||If weber isn't gonna flip,||
If weber isn't gonna flip, why would he still be radio silent? There's no silly hat thing happening.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe this one doesn't apply.||
Maybe this one doesn't apply. But a whole lot of guys are trying to draw attention by building fake suspense. Generally, its really juvenile.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Why would a starting senior||
Why would a starting senior in a top-tier defense, program, conference, and university decide to chuck it all for one season at a rebuilding program? Yeah, Harbaugh and all. But this transfer hardly seems likely -- unless the kid has somehow fallen out with his team. But I've seen no indication of same.
EDIT: If his mother just got a job at UM, I guess that's motivation enough. But does anyone have any meaningful indication that her son is actually hoping to transfer? Or are people just assuming? If so, that's a big assumption.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Californians don't usually||
Californians don't usually say those either. Because they're also lame.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah. I'm sure Brady is still||
Yeah. I'm sure Brady is still a very close friend of Falk's. I'm sure they talk all the time. Jeez.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Ha. The guy is Australian so||
Ha. The guy is Australian so you make a Down Under joke. That's so funny and original.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I stand corrected. Sorry.||
I stand corrected. Sorry.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Wheatley. Pickard. The CB||
Wheatley. Pickard. The CB from Rutgers. 1 of the visiting WRs. That's four. Plus, maybe two out of Clark, Weber, Smith, Marshall. Plus maybe 1 surprise.

One of the OLs (Kugler) already transferred.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Let's be honest. It's weird||
Let's be honest. It's weird that kids hold programs hostage till the final day. He knows where he's going. He's just forcing everybody to dance.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||If he really is meeting with||
If he really is meeting with Harbaugh -- and this remains an if -- then it's actually a pretty strong sign that he's flipping. Doesn't Urban expressly forbid his verbal commits from talking to Michigan?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||If that's how it happened,||
If that's how it happened, then that's a kid/family Michigan doesn't want. I'd imagine Mattison et al give more or less the same academics pitch to all recruits. But this seems to be the first one who found reason to take offense.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||He declared early but will go u drafted? Smart move.||
He declared early but will go u drafted? Smart move.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I don't normally assume guys||
I don't normally assume guys will flip just because they're locals. But am I the only one who just feels like this one is likely to happen? It would be easy for him to end this thing now. But he hasn't. And he clearly has some attachment to Michigan. Plus, Harbaugh and Wheatley. Plus, doesn't Urban normally forbid verbal commits from meeting with coaches from M and MSU? If Weber just met with Dantonio, and if he's scheduled to meet Harbaugh, wouldn't this suggest that he and OSU aren't very solid?
