Duck Thinkagain

How those famous words caught on video became so real.  

As you know by now, Aubrey Solomon has decided to transfer from Michigan.  I guess the program has a one Solomon limit.  This transfer has been rumored for some time and today became official. 

There are really 3 reasons kids transfer:

1- homesick 
2- academics 
3- playing time 

There of course are other reasons but those 3 usually cover it.  My guess for this transfer would be 1 & 3.   Aubrey barely played this year due to an injury and illness.  Last year he saw spot duty as a freshman.  He of course, was expected to play a huge role next season, which now he will watch from the sideline at Georgia or someplace.  

The rumor mills continues to spin on another big name that might transfer, but I will let you think on that one as this post fades to black.    For the size of the 2019 class Michigan is signing, more departures are expected.  

How excited are you about the Peach Bowl in a couple of weeks?

Michigan has 13,000 tickets and still hasn't sold out their allotment yet. 

Speaking of rumors there seems to be plenty of smoke around a fire that a number of kids will be sitting out.   Including Gary, maybe a total of 5 starters.   

So Michigan is going to play an exhibition game missing over 20% of their starters as healthy scratches.    Yea, that should be a great game:  Florida vs. Michigan's 2nd team.   

Again these are just rumors but there is plenty of smoke as bowl practice has already started.  

Let's hope Wednesday works out better for Michigan then expected.  

and I keep reminding myself, Michigan is a basketball school, Michigan is a basketball school, Michigan is a basketball school!

You right Bob I said that long time ago Michigan is more of a basketball school then a football school for the past 10 years or even more... I think John Beilein deserves more recognition than Jim Harbaugh.... I think it is Donovan people's Jones that's leaving?

Was looking forward to the Peach Bowl as it's an easy trip for me but the luster is quickly wearing off.

No Tariq Black is rumored, that's the buzz. People's Jones will not leave Michigan. He is solid. Black sees, nico and people's moving ahead of him. I think he is worried about his playing time.

Dang I like T. Black...

Steve Zander said...

Black worried about playing time?!? Get real. He may leave but it won't be for that.

Mike Tebbe said...

Black hasn't been healthy in 2 years... Would hate to see him go but it's not because of the coaches not playing him...

T. Black broke both of his leg...is he even effective any more?...

Steve Zander said...

OMG, when did he break both legs???

Alex LaCruz said...

Those were foot injuries Einstein. If he would have broke both legs that probably would have ended his career.
