Michigan sophomore Carvin Johnson has left the team, a U-M spokesman confirmed. he played in 8 games, had 14 tackles and a pass breakup.
So much potential, but best of luck to him.

What should I title my threads?

Please make your thread titles as informative as possible: "Justin Feagin" is bad. "Justin Feagin leaving the team?" is good.

This is nearly the exact example provided. This isn't an online newspaper. The OP doesn't get bonus points for more people opening the thread. There is no reason to have a teaser headline. It would be much easier to find the thread in the future with an appropriate headline. Points mean absolutely nothing and don't even work, so does it really matter if it gets negged or not?

Bummer.  He was one of my favorite players on the team.  Something about that picture of him with the State title game MVP trophy but looking so crushed since his team lost made me want this guy to succeed so badly.  Best of luck to him wherever he goes.

Frees up a scholly I guess. I wish I had a better understanding how APR works, but I usually fall asleep reading about it.

This is probably an additional factor in Woolfolk's move to safety and lends credence to the unverified veracity of Hoke claiming the move happened before the injury to Kovacs.

sweet.... (-_-)... the problem is... you need competition amongst upper classman too... If our safeties were to go down, itd be nice having a seasoned, experienced Carvin Johnson instead of a Freshman....(but Jarrod Wilson is sweet)

and yet I'm not panicking. I wonder if the Woolfolk move caused this or was because of this

Was really looking forward to seeing him grow. Good luck kid

Can this really be what's best for the team?  Why does Michigan have sooooo much attrition, year in and year out.

Please stop, I would like fully developed upperclassman across 90% of the positions some day.

the 2 coaching changes being only 3 years apart. I don't want to say it's normal, but it's kind of expected, especially after coach Hoke told us months ago how big the next recruiting class would be. Besides, we had 20 or so DBs when the season began (if you include incoming freshmen) all pretty much neck-and-neck vying to play 4+ spots and then keep those spots when next years big class came in.

November 1st, 2011 at 7:43 PM ^ Mr. Johson.  A bit concerned about what this does to our depth chart, but not too concerned about what it does to the team we put on the field, or look to be putting on the field over the next 2 to 3 years.  

I've got to ask those who know better, though...why does someone request a transfer in the middle of the season?  Or did he leave for another reason?


November 1st, 2011 at 7:43 PM ^

at the beginning of the year. From far away place + lack of redshirt + coaching change + lack of playing time = high likelyhood of transfer. I really hope we hold onto Marvin as I think he will be a stud at Strong Safety his senior year and we'll need someone to step in for Kovacs.

I still don't understand why an athlete would leave in the middle of the season though. You never know what will happen and at the end of the semester once you've passed your classes you can make an informed decision about whether or not to transfer.



November 1st, 2011 at 7:47 PM ^

He could have any reason for leaving. Wish him well. But so many from different teams I hear of are about playing time and I have no sympathy for that. There seems to be a overblown sense of entitlement in many that they should play right away or aren't getting their dues. Work hard and wait your turn. /rant over
Not assuming this about CJ. Good luck buddy.

One Inch Woody…

Why man... why. You even played regularly! Good luck wherever you go (cough.. Pitt).

Our safety depth is wearing thin... if Kovacs can return by Illinois we're good, but otherwise I'm not feeling too good about putting a porcelain doll as starting SS


November 1st, 2011 at 7:54 PM ^

I thought he had good potential even though he's clearly behind Kovacs and T Gordon at this point. I doubt that Woolfolk has anything to do with this, as Woolfolk is a senior and Johnson a sophomore. Gordon, maybe.
