Tate Forcier ignores his own advice.

It’s pretty impressive to go from this quote (h/t SPORTSbyBROOKS)

“I’ve never been the greatest student. My brothers were always the geniuses. I was always the kid who was street smart but not that smart classroom-wise. You really have to try to flunk out here. All you have to do is go to class, it’s not that hard…”

to this fate in a few hours.

It’s amazing how much drama Michigan, which I used to think was one of the most staid, boring programs in the country, has gone through under RichRod.  I have no idea if he’s coaching for his job in the Gator Bowl, but if his fate winds up being sealed, Brian Cook’s anguished question neatly sums up what a waste his tenure will have been.

… If there is a change you can go start the Denard transfer watch at DEFCON 2, since Robinson knows what he is—the Big Ten offensive player of the year as a sophomore at quarterback—and where he fits. How screwed up is a program that manages to get both Ryan Mallett and Denard Robinson to transfer away from certain starting QB jobs in the course of three years?

    Wouldn’t surprise me to see him end up at Auburn. His kind of offense, an NFL bound QB and the inside track with the NCAA to avoid those pesky rules. What’s not to love?

    and I’m sure Auburn can afford him .

    The real headline of this is .. “and we think we’ve got it bad?”

    I know he confessed to not being too smart, but how dumb do you have to be to brag about how easy it is to pass at a school that prides itself on its academic reputation? I wouldn’t be surprised if an academic administrator at UM read that first article and said, “Oh, is that so? Well, let’s take another look at your academic record here…hmm…SHAZAM!”
