Michigan Tuesday: Plenty of News To Go Around

The Sub popped a leak on Monday and news started to flow out.

  • Shea Patterson is your starting QB.  This was always going to be the case once the NCAA granted his waiver.  Harbaugh has done well with one transfer QB and had a miss with another.  It's time for him to hit a home run with Shea.  

  • Grant Newsome medically retires.  He tried to comeback and we will never know how close he was.  The good news is, he is walking and the Michigan doctors were able to save his leg.   He will be a great coach or anything else he decides to do. 

  • The OSU Board of Regents will meet on Wednesday to discuss a suspension for head coach Urban Meyer.  Reports out of C-Bus is that it will be a suspension and not a firing.  Not sure how you move forward with a leader that is comfortable covering up and lying events.   How did all the second chances work out for a basketball coaching legend at Louisville?

  • Michigan DE Deron Irving-Bey has decided to transfer to CMU. DIB was a red shirt freshman and was ranked as a 4 star DE Army All-American out of Flint. Though his offer list was a bit confusing with the likes of MAC Schools and places like Pitt and Syracuse. This seems like a strange decision for a guy just starting his career at Michigan but maybe the writing was on the wall for future playing time or maybe he wanted to be closer to home? Either way good luck to him in Mt. Pleasant!

  • Chris Partridge said Michigan doesn't have a punter yet. Which is not good news less then two weeks from a trip to South Bend.    Time to call the Michigan Soccer Team! 

  • The Michigan Basketball Team beat the Madrid Generals 82-72 with true freshman Ignas Brazdeikis leading the Wolverines with 17 points, while senior Charles Matthews added 13.   Has a team with the nickname "Generals" ever won a basketball game?   

  • The Golden Gophers are starting a walk-on true freshman QB.  Zack Annexstad did play at IMG last year, so he isn't the star of the Co-Ed flag football league or anything.
