Rutgers / Marcus Witherspoon Update

Rutgers / Marcus Witherspoon Update

Submitted by mjv on September 21st, 2010 at 11:41 AM

I was reading an article about LaLota transferring to Rutgers.  There was an interesting item about Marcus Witherspoon (LB recruit out of NJ that had clearinghouse issues and was not admitted to M).  

The interesting quote:  "In 2008, linebacker Marcus Witherspoon, a star at Holy Spirit High in Atlantic City,  transfered from Michigan but he never panned out and left school last spring."

Here's the link to the article:  http://www.nj.com/rutgersfootball/index.ssf/2010/09/lalota_is_happy_to_be_a_scarle.html

Since we've had a dearth of prime-time LBs recently (here's hoping Mouton, Ezeh, Herron, Brown, Fitz et al step up this year) I was very sad when Marcus Witherspoon didn't get into Michigan (do we really know the truth about what happened?) and ended up at Rutgers.  The evil injury-god has been plaguing him though...not just our guys.

NOTE:  I'm living here in North Carolina where it's all Carolina Blue and not Maize and Blue!!  Since I bleed maize and blue, I'm always in withdrawal when it comes to the football team, Ann Arbor and the University in general.  A client (who is a WVU grad) mentioned  - nicely - the other day that he hates RR and wishes nothing but ill will for him and now the UM football team.  Okay, I can understand how he feels (sales training) but I tried to impress upon him that one should always be on the lookout for a better job, girl, car, etc. and when RR saw the UM job open, of course he looked into it.  Unfortunately he didn't see things my way but since he's a client I did give him some half-serious fluff about the WVU program and what a powerhouse it is now. Calmed him down, thankfully.  After we chatted for a while longer, he told me about MGOBLOG (I had no idea).  Now I'm in heaven...it's my homepage on my home computer now.  Thanks Brian...keep it up.
