Furman Booed at Crab Bowl?

It sounds to me like the crowd boos after Furman announced he would be attending Michigan.

If a Great Lakes High School All Star Bowl were held at the Big House, or even Ford Field, and Ricardo Miller announced that he were going to be a Maryland Terp...cheers? Smattering of applause? Perhaps, but likely a handful of good-natured boos as well.

I heard absolutely no booing, but it didn't sound like many people were there at all and there aren't any fans in the far sideline's bleachers.It just sounded like a bunch of people were yelling random stuff that you can't make out. Not sure what you were hearing, but it couldn't have been booing (or at least not enough to really make out in this video).

It's when they stop booing that you know we're in trouble. Booing is respect. they know UM will be back. If they thought we were going to stay down they would be laughing at Furman instead.

Look at that place. Did the players on the other side of the field boo? What about the dudes next to him? It was like 20 degrees last night with 20 inches of snow on the ground still.

Who cares if they boo? The only ones to have done it would've been Tech fans and you wouldn't expect better out of them.

...and Michigan is committed to you, Mr. Furman. Congratulations! We all hope that you have an awesome 4 years academically and athletically.

There are like zero people there, and the game is being played in the background during the announcement. Any noise that was heard (and if there was any, it was very faint) was probably due to what was happening on the field. Very psyched to get the commitment, but it wasn't like he was making his announcement to a sold out Big House.

Even if they did boo, who cares? He is leaving his hometown state to play somewhere else. He's gotta expect some criticism. Hopefully the next time he is booed, it will be because the opposing fans are sick of his stellar play.
