Professional Hottie Says Tate To Transfer Comment Count

UPDATE: Professional hottie's tweet has disappeared. You can safely ignore the below, I think.

Um… so this person…

melanie_collins

…has a twitter that says this:

Very reliable source telling me Tate Forcier requested a transfer from #Michigan this AM. NOT yet confirmed, will update as I know more.

I'd link it but I'm getting fail whales and am suffused with an overwhelming ennui.

Not to disparage smoking hot bikini models or anything, but I'd probably take Mike Rothstein's word over hers. Then again she has done some sideline work for the Big Ten Network—the entire reason this is credible enough to bother with—and Rothstein is not banging out strenuous denials and this is Michigan post-Bo so it's probably true and all she left out its that he's hiring someone to bash Denard's knee in, Tonya Harding style.

I'd be really surprised, actually. That would be a pretty bratty move considering they are trying to motivate him, not punish him. If he became motivated and won the starting job, no one is going to be disappointed. Just play well.

And they knew there would be 2 QBs in the same class, they both came here knowing they were a possibility to split time as different threats. My feeling on these things is that it's not cool to change your mind. Transferring for those reasons is, to me, taking the "easy way out".

There are times to transfer, like McGuffie, whom I still respect. But Tate isn't going to, and if he does, he's not a Michigan Man anyway. (but he won't)

Yeah, I am with you. A quick glance at her twitter page reveals that she is REALLY good looking (sorry, i'm a sucker for skinny blondes with big racks) and that she is also a dumb starfucker-- note the mention to her emailing Jeremy Piven, who's known as quite the cad/creepy old guy-type in the Chicagoland area (which, yeah, I know- shocking- but this isn't L.A., so, ya know. And he's always in town). That's the "starfucker" part. The "dumb" part is her reference to flash cards to prep for upcoming CFB season. Christ, it isn't rocket science or 1st year Torts or something.

This would not be surprising. But would really blow. And god she is absurd in a bikini. /end chauvinism.

Tweet's been removed.

EDIT: Also, what the hell Brian. If we can't count on you to figure out if things are real or fake before blasting them all over the main board, who can we trust?

I mean, he went out of his way to sarcastically label the title of the thread and posted two pictures of the "source" in order to emphasize the reliability and his trust in the source.

I don't think he means for anyone to take the Professional Hottie too seriously (evident by him saying to ignore it).

If its true I am guessing Denard and Devin were both beating him out. I really hope its not true, however I wouldnt be shocked with a transfer if he was option number 3 at qb

I'm no twitter expert, but I just went to her page and didn't see anything.  Full of crap, mayhaps?  There were people on WTKA just yesterday saying Pop Forcier was on board with the helmet thing and thought Tate needed to learn to work hard, be a leader, etc.

I'm calling full of crap reporter trying to get some publicity, when if she in fact wants publicity all she needs is a trampoline.
