Harbaugh: Speight NOT out for the season (UPDATE 7:51pm)

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on November 14th, 2016 at 7:09 PM

Says it's a game-time decision but the reports of him being out for the reason are simply incorrect.

Just said this now on the Inside Michigan Football radio show.

I WANT TO BELIEVE

Harbaugh said Speight will be out of practice a "couple days" this week and "we'll see"

Harbaugh says any report saying Speight is out for the season is incorrect.

UPDATE: Speight just retweeted the above the tweet from NB that he is not out for the season. For old folks, a retweet is basically an endorsement in cases like these.

Is this the same "we'll see" that has kept Drake out all season??

I know, I know. Different situations. But I don't really expect accurate injury information from any coach ever.

I'm shocked this is what you guys talk about after maybe the most embarrassing loss in recent memory.  You haven't been good for alooooong time.  Finally you have a chance to close out against maybe the worst Iowa team in several years.  But I guess when you've been mediocre for so long this is what you talk about.

"Most embarrassing loss in recent memory" is a pretty interesting take. From what I have seen in college football this year, there hasn't been one team that didn't have at least one bad game, and Alabama just happens to be the only team who has got through without losing one. So, to single out Michigan as the only team who should be embarrassed by one loss, while still being in the driver seat in their division and controlling their own destiny to a National Championship, I think you just contradicted your own mediocrity claim.

C+ for effort since I am feeling generous today, but your troll game needs A LOT of work.

He could've been carted off the field in a cast and Harbaugh is going to say, we will see how the week goes before me make a determination if he will play this week. I don't blame him as he's not going to give Indiana any news that might help them prepare.

 

My guess is there are three sides to every story - yours, mine and the cold hard truth and I think the truth is somewhere in between. I would be shocked to see him play this week, but he might be ready to go by OSU week.

For the playoffs till the final ine.could just be a play on words by coach harbaugh. If say it's a hairline break he could easily be ready for the playoffs or a bowl game. What I do know is I wouldn't want to be the one that leaked that info, lol.

do matter. The committee has egg on its face last year with MSU, both because they were not Playoff caliber and because Cook was clearly hurt. I think Michigan could vary in their ranking tonight from anywhere from #3 to #6, and Speight's status does play into it.

I'm not prepared to do anything, say anything, that would possibly compare Coach Harbaugh to Hoke (even if I think that the latter was maligned at times when he didn't deserve it...)

It may not be a fracture, it's quite possibly just aggravation of a prior injury. And a wounded psyche maybe. This could be interesting.

My head asplode.

The definition of season would need to be defined.

This site says regular season which I assume to mean the 12 games.  

Because the season technically will not end until late December/January.
