"All you need to know is, I'm out."Rothstein asked if him if he had a minute, and that was Tate's response. However, according to Tate's dad, Mike, he's 150% NOT transferring. He told the AP that his son was just frustrated. Via Adam Rittenberg.
"Tate was upset he didn't play, then he felt like a caged animal getting prodded by the media," his father said. "There's no way I'm going to be any part of him leaving Michigan. He's going to play this season because there's no way Robinson can keep taking a pounding like that."From my view on TV, it looked really bad that Tate was all alone by himself on the sideline. He should have had his helmet on and stood with his teammates. But that's just me. Everyone else on this team seemed to understand the concept of the "Team".
"I talked to Tate briefly and asked him why he was pouting on the sideline with a towel over his head," he said. "He said he was just trying to get away from the TV cameras that were trying to get him to show some emotion."

I have a suspicion that this isn't the last time we'll address this topic.
