You have been complaining for the past two years about how Rich Rod wasted his Redshirt. Apology on your end? Your comments are generally pretty accurate but you might owe an apology on this one, although I would have agreed with you if the medical redshirt would have not been granted.
There's no apology coming, nor is there one warranted. The move was meant to keep Forcier in line (which didn't work since he flunked out of school) and it risked Gardner's fifth year of eligibility unnecessarily.
I agree it was a dumb move - and it prevented me from winning a nice wager on the under for Forcier yards against UCONN - so I hated it even more.That said - at least Rodriguez realized his mistake was potentially fixable and didn't play him the rest of the year...or maybe he didn't realize it and just backed his way into it. Oh well, Hoke's luck...As for 2014 -- this is HUGE. I think Gardner's going to be a conference POY contender. I love his leadership and I think 2 more seasons working under Borges could make him into a very very good QB.Between Lewan and Green's decisions and this news it's been a pretty great month or so for Michigan football.
Yeah, as much as I want to support Anonymous and pester Magnus about this...you can't be retroactively wrong.
Huh? You want Magnus to apologize for criticizing a decision that put Gardner's 5th year in the hands of the NCAA? An apology despite the fact that you "would have agreed with [him] if the medical redshirt would have not been granted?"Geesh. I'm critical of parents that let kids play in traffic. Do I owe apologies to the parents if the kids don't get hurt? Come on.
There goes Anonymous talking to himself again. Myself?
