FSU once had a Rhodes Scholar on their football team; every school has perfectly intelligent, college-ready athletes on their rosters.  But it's pretty clear that Michigan couldn't get his credits/grades to transfer over while Florida did.  That isn't a judgment on Jefferson as a person, only that Florida found a way to clear a guy who Michigan wouldn't, and that tells you something about the flexibility of UF's academic standards when they need a couple more players.

that the same rules apply to all schools.  This is a good example.  Florida is a good school but their standards are obviously more "flexible" than at Michigan.  I am okay with this. More than okay, I am proud.  All schools are not the same.

I like the WRs we have on the roster. Just a reminder, we have:
– Tarik Black
– Donovan Peoples-Jones
– Nico Collins
– Oliver Martin
– Kekoa Crawforr
– Grant Perry

– Edde McDoom

– And then a bunch of capable (flex) TEs with NFL futures.

Would have liked to have him but we have a ton of talent at WR. I think it will benefit this team in the long run to have an extra scholarship this year rather than yet another receiver on the depth chart.

Oh well. We have DPJ, Tarik Black. Nico Collins and Oliver Martin. That WR class was exciting coming into the year. They will all grow this offseason. Grant Perry and Crawford. We should be good. This hurts but still have good talent on our team.

Michigan has always been very challenging when it comes to transfers. That goes for regular students as well as athletes. 

It's not surprising that kids from Ole Miss have a tough time with our admissions. If Patterson got in, I feel pretty confident he earned it academically.

Just beg the SEC, last year to change an admission policy for grad transfers, because they weren't maintaining enough credit hours, once they transferred in for their Grad programs? They also take JC transfers on a regular basis.

The SEC had a rule that if a grad-transfer didn’t actually finish his career with a graduate degree then that school could not take another grad-transfer for 3 years. It was a rule unique to the SEC, and uncharacteristically harsh for them.

Florida had a few grad-transfers that did not actually graduate, and gave the SEC the first opportunity to actually enforce the new rule with Malik Zaire. Instead the SEC voted to get rid of the rule.

Guess he doesn’t like to win!

Doesn’t he know Michigan curb stomped these fools last two times we played them.

If I am not mistaken we are undefeated against them
