Oh dear oh dear oh dear. I am trying so so hard not to hate the Free Press these days, plus I know a growing segment of the Mgopopulation hates any mention of the paper, but I had to mention this...using Tim's awesome notes from the hallway press conference we get this question regarding Mike Shaw:
"What is Michael Shaw's eligibility status?
Well we're still waiting on some - we don't comment on our guys' academically, and they still have two weeks of summer school left. Uh, which for some of our players, uh, we'll keep in touch with them."
Here is the top of the page headline on Freep.com right now:
U-M's top rusher, Michael Shaw, not yet eligible
While this may or may not be true, leave it to the Free Press to cast the information in the worst possible light. Is Shaw our leading rusher by yardage, yes, but was he the most liklely #1 choice at RB this year, probably not from the information I have seen...plus maybe he is eligible right now, but his current grade could drag him under the limit who knows...I just don't understand why the Freep continues to show every bit of U-M information in the worst possible light, its nuts.
