Dee Hart Transfer Rumors-Michigan Potential Destination

Submitted by MichiganMan2424 on August 20th, 2012 at 9:09 PM

In the past hour rumors have been swirling on twitter about Dee Hart potentially transferring. This tweet from @UMGoBlog was the first one I found that wasn't some sort of retweet;

Michigan Football @UMGoBlog

Rumor: Dee Hart named 4th RB @ Bama. Considering transferring to AUB/FLA/MICH.

Now I don't know how much validity there are to these rumors, and I don't know how reliable UMGoBlog is, but this is interesting if true.

FWIW... googled Dee Hart Transfer...

This stuff came from message boards, don't take it as gospel... but... Jesus

First thing that pops up,

Rumor floating that Bama LB Xzavier Dickson was breaking into cars, broke into Hart's.

Hart tried to fight him, Dickson beat him down, Hart comes back at him with a knife.

Its shameful that a lot of our guys were blazing before a game, but this is like on another planet.  Like Football and the Streets down there or something.

I hope this didn't happen, esp if he plans on coming to Michigan

Alabama's starting LB is breaking into cars and this is widely known to the football team, yet Saban keeps it all hush hush. Don't know about the rumors per say, but this, so far, is believable. 

I am just waiting for the day where some kid is fed up with Saban's favoritism (kind of like what came out about Urban after he retired from UF) and decides to tell all. Then hopefully the whole fabric of the SEC unravels and the NCAA somehow grows the balls to actually do something about it.

If he opted to transfer to Michigan, I'd welcome him. But I'm not sure we'll need him. He's going to want to go somewhere where he has a good chance to start. Maybe he'd get that here, but I think he'd get buried behind Rawls and Hayes anyway. Plus, he'll be facing some pretty stiff competition from Deveon Smith, Wyatt Shallman, and if Green commits, I think Hart will have 0 chance to play.

He should consider Florida. Its not like they have much of an offense to speak of these days.

How gullible is everyone on here? Lacy's knee, and now hart transferring? Give me a break! Stories are being planted just so everyone gets in a stir. Go do some research on trolling clubs on the net. Enlighten yourselves fergodsake!

Sad, yet almost poetic if true. Hart shafts Michigan for Alabama, who in turn shaft him. Well we have limited roster spots available. Hypothetically, which #1 running back would you rather have, would you take Dee Hart back, or sign Derrick Green?

It would be nice to finally see Hart make it to Ann Arbor, but Florida presents a lot bigger opportunity for him right now.  By next year, Michigan will be loaded at RB, while Florida, despite Muschamp's declaration of a "stable" of running backs, doesn't have anyone who is really tearing it up.  

It's a lot closer to Orlando, too.

I dont think he is 4th on the depth chart either. I think he is second. Fowler has been practcing with H-Back and seems like he will stay there other than short yardage and goalline stuff. Yeldon will be a beast, but the staff isnt confident in his pass protection like they are with Hart.

If Hart leaves Bama, after what Saban did to keep him on the team last year, I dont think it will be by Harts choosing.

If he does leave the team, Auburn and Florida wont be options for him.

If his top-3 is indeed Florida, Auburn, and Michigan, he needs a new top-3.  Doubtful Saban would let him transfer within the SEC.  And unless he's thinking about transfering after Week 1 of this year, then Saban won't let him transfer to Michigan either ... since, you know, we are gonna play each other.

When is he thinking about transfering?

A) REALLY?! I seriously doubt that.

B) Am I the only person here who thinks that someone who wants to transfer their soph year just because they're not starting, and said that he went to Bama b/c Saban would get him ready for "the league"...

...am I really the only person here who doesn't think this kid has his priorities straight? Am I the only one who hopes we get as few football factory assembly workers as possible at Michigan?

I really hope I'm not the only one who thinks that kids who want only to play pre-professional ball and use a university as a cover can go elsewhere.

If you're not interested in a degree, a winged helmet, and a fair shot, there are plenty of other schools out there for you.

C) Man...I am getting old before my time if I'm having to defend this kind of position.
