Derrick Green is a bust? C'mon man, we have seen him carry the ball 83 times behind a very young OL and already we must quell our expectations of him? Man, we all need to forget that dickhole punch of a year.

the other guys. Never know if he indicated interest to an UM recruit and we have a puncher's chance. Looked tough last night.

Still, does anyone believe better than 25% chance he goes Blue?

I love the Jones offer. Also, not a hijack, but I just read that Michigan has reached out to Tyler O'Connor (the PSU QB commit) about his interest. They are apparently talking over offering him even though they only planned on taking 1 QB this year. Very interesting developments.

If you read the blog post he linked to it actually sounds like O'Connor's coach reached out to Borges. Because Al says "we've only thinking about taking one QB" (paraphrasing). Then it sounds like the coach sent the kids tape to Borges and Borges told him they'll review it and get back to him.

Reading between the lines it sounds like Borges is trying to not burn bridges with the coach vs. having actual interest in taking two QB's. The tweet seems to be fishing for clicks...

We don't need plenty of help elsewhere. We're up against the scholarship limit. These aren't the Rodriguez years of 70 scholarship players.

Also, O'Connor isn't a greyshirt type of player. They would be insulting the kid if that's all they offered him.

I was joking on the scholarship, you don't give up a scholarship to PSU to greyshirt at Michigan.

That said, we're likely to whiff on not one but two DEs, so clearly that is still a position of need in comparison to QB.

We could also use help in the secondary, especially if there is some rumored attrition.

Take a SS, Gant is playing SLB and Furman is Furman, plus he's a 5th year.

I'd much rather take a potenital Kovacs than a QB. Even if it's a Ray Vinopal/Brandent Englemon type. Those are the kinds of underrated kids that you get late. Smart, leader, always in position, coach on the field, Spike Albrecht types.

So YES. We could use plenty of elsewhere. Or were you not watching this year?

Thank you and goodnight.

Actually, the coaches told Speight several months ago that they were leaving the door open for another quarterback if necessary, and Speight said he wasn't afraid of the competition. And I don't think the coaches ever guaranteed that Speight would be the only QB in the class in the first place.

ridiculous? I bet Wilton Speight knows a lot more about what is happening than any of us. The players should have just had their exit interviews. The coaches might know something about the roster going forward that isn't public knowledge. Aside from that, taking a second QB in this class seems like a good idea if it's someone they like a lot. It's possible to redshirt one and improve the roster balance, something only made possible by Morris burning his redshirt.
