Toney Clemons is Gonzo

Sophomore WR Toney Clemons (cousin of Cardinals WR Steve Breaston) has decided to leave the Michigan Football program. "It's time for me to make a change and go in another direction than what I am needed for," Clemons told the Valley News Dispatch. "I still love Michigan. It's still my No. 1. Athletically, this is the right move for me."

Toney caught 11 balls last year for just over 100 yards. He was a 6"3 WR trying to play in the slot and just wasn't a good fit. I'm not sure why he wasn't lined up outside more, playing behind Greg Matthews. I feel bad for Toney and wished he had stayed but with 3 high profile WR's coming in 2010, 2 big WR's coming in this Summer, and the current roster full of WR's like Greg Mathews, Darryl Stonum, Junior Hemingway and slot WR's with Odoms, red shirt freshmen Terrance Robinson, and Jeremy Gallon. Michigan is in pretty good shape at WR and won't miss Toney too badly.

Toney is the third Michigan player to transfer this year behind McGuffie and Threet. Both Clemons and Threet don't know where their next school will be.

Not to beat a dead horse, but the grass isn't always greener boys!

  • Some Michigan Traditionalist are excited about the Spring Game becoming more of an event. Some other Traditionalist are concerned about Michigan Football Games becoming a minor league baseball park with a bunch of pop/rock music and movie clips. I went to the Purdue Michigan game last year at Purdue and they would not stop with that crap. I am all for a "fun" Spring Game, but let's not go overboard during regular season home games. We can leave the "cheesiness" to other programs. What's next? a big lovable Wolverine roaming the sidelines? :-) One a side note, why is Ohio State's mascot not named "Bucky"?

  • Seantrel Henderson (the #1 recruit in the nation by both services) on his trip to Michigan this past weekend: “Michigan was great,” Henderson remarked. “I loved it more than any other college I’ve been to so far.”
