What the hell are you talking about?  Obviously you know nothing my friend.

K-Zoo CC has the Hornets.  They had 7 players make the All-MIA team.  My favorite is Mike Page who is a personal friend.  The kid is a beast, too bad he wasnt big enough for us.  He thought about playing for M but would have only played special teams.

I can't help but wonder, what if? What if we gave him the chance to prove he's grown up? Everyone makes mistakes (though not always of the same degree or nature), but I thought it was a person's ability to learn and grow from their mistakes that proved their maturity, and ultimately what kind of person they truly are. If we don't give him a chance because there are no schollies or because we truly don't believe he's changed, then that's fine. But if we don't give him a chance because we are protecting an image, then I think that is pretty sad. Universities are meant to educate and prepare young people for life. I just don't see the problem with giving a young man a second chance. He obviously wants to be here.

I do think his simple desire to play for Michigan alone does not mean Michigan should let him in. If a simple desire to work hard and succeed at Michigan was all it took to get in enrollment would be 150,000. If the University doesn't think he can ultimately succeed here, then they're well within their right.  We don't really know all the fact surrounding his academics and how that plays into the school's decision.

I wish him the best, and hope that he does enough to make Michigan believe that he can succeed here.

 I'd take a kid with a desire to work hard and succeed at Michigan over ... Let's use ole Adolfus Washington

“I know all these schools athletically can offer me the same thing. The academic support at Ohio State, there is no way you can fail. Even if you’re giving minimal effort there is no way you can fail."

I'd rather see Dorsey on the team than Stonum as of right now.

I'm pretty sure you don't know why he isn't in AA. It wasn't about character, it was about his going to a very suspect online HS to become academically eligible. It didn't pass the smell test with admissions here or anywhere else.

This was a bad break for DD. I've been rooting for him to get to UM. Hopefully he still has a chance.

Sad to see another program get dropped.  Sure it sucks for Dorsey, but it also sucks for the rest of the kids on that team who probably won't have another chance to play competitive football.


January 9th, 2012 at 4:39 PM ^

Did anyone see him play this past season?  If so, is this kid truly a 5 star caliber talent?  

I would imagine a 4.3-40 are the only numbers he needs to get into some D-1 schools!

I know public schools in Michigan have larger fish to fry, but they don't support football enough for my liking. There are reportedly now no community college programs in the state and the MHSAA's restrictions on football activities have been a joke for decades.

If you want to know why Ohio produces a talent pool in football disproportionately larger than the one in Michigan, the difference in school system support is the first place to look.


January 9th, 2012 at 5:02 PM ^

I'd agree with many here that we simply don't know DD's character, present academic situation, etc.  Having said that, you just gotta' love this guy's desire to be a Wolverine.  I'd love to see this kid come in, make a difference on the field while succeeding academically too.  I have no idea if that would happen because I simply don't know enough about him.  But what a great story it would be if he were capable of doing so and more importantly, did it.  If he has that kind of potential, I hope he gets a shot.  If not at Michigan, than somewhere he can thrive.

Out of the defacto Junior College National Championship game this year. There are several bowls for the Junior College teams, and for some reason GRCC wasnt picked, although on paper they were the more appealing team and the higher ranked. Heard they travel no one (Fans) though... I read in the link above that Coach Anneese "Sudden departure" is one (Of several) reasons for the discontuining the program, I havent heard or seen anything as to where he may be going which makes me wonder.


January 9th, 2012 at 5:22 PM ^

....that he still can get a shot at getting into Michigan based on academics. I don't know how he is doing at GRCC, but it would be great for him if his grades made it possible for him to transfer here. I think that, if he were to come here, then the best way is to come by it honestly, and if he couldn't get in, then I wish him well wherever he goes. 

I think he would be a great addition to Team 133 or 134, however it worked, of  course. That blows that GRCC is discontinuing football - it seems like Dorsey gets the short end of the stick more often than not, and that's unfortunate.

GRCC is always one of the best junior colleges one could go to, and always has a great football program. I go there, and every time i saw a football player they were really down about not being invited to a bowl game this season.

You can't help but feel for that football team. I'm sure quite a few of them will transfer to a place where they can play.

Obviously we don't know all of the details, but I'd love to see the kid get a chance somewhere. I'd love to see him in a winged helmet, but more importantly hope he gets a shot somewhere and a chance to finish his degree.

Funny his name was brought up.  I googled him, and found a GREAT thread about him, highlighting some personal photos of him and his "squad" that he kicks it with.  Apparently, drugs, guns, and gang signs are common place in his life.
