Forcier to Transfer?

Twitter is alive and buzzing with the rumor that Tate Forcier has requested a transfer from UM earlier today. Big Ten Network reporter hottie Melanie Collins tweeted this, and then erased it [via mgoblog]:
Very reliable source telling me Tate Forcier requested a transfer from #Michigan this AM. NOT yet confirmed, will update as I know more.
Then about a half hour ago, tweeted this:
Wow really struck a nerve w/ ppl. Like I said, NOT confirmed. We'll see what plays out.
Mike Forcier, Tate's dad, laughed at the rumors and denies it. Says he wouldn't support Tate transferring, but also admits he hasn't spoken with Tate about it either. We here at MBN know very little other than Calvin Magee didn't seem like he knew of any such transfer this morning when he met with reporters. Said that Tate was doing well, but dodged the question about whether he has earned his wings back.
"Tate's been competing, playing, doing well." They all understand what's at stake for the team. All-in for the team. Does Tate have his wings back? "It's not for me to tell you that."
Like I said, info is all sketchy at this point. When we know more, we will update.


  1. Brad, stop posting depressing and negative news like this. You're doing a massive disservice to the true fans, whose faith in Michigan is holding on by a thread. Seriously, man, we don't need this crap. Especially when it's just a rumor. Forcier has wanted to play for Michigan since he was ten years old. One doesn't just throw that away. This blog is really getting ridiculous.

    if you watch the new countdown to kick off tate flies into the screen and seems pretty happy to me im with jack

  3. We have a 5 game losing streak. Haven't been to a bowl since Lloyd left. A current coach that most Michigan fans can't stand. We have a 6 game losing streak to tOSU. 2 game losing streak to MSU, Illinois, Purdue and Penn State. We just lost our best DB for the season. We lost our best recruit in the 2010 class to academics. Our best recruit in the 2009 class just transferred. Our defense ranks near the bottom of the B10 in every real category. Our team has players that chose not to work out during the off-season because they just don't give a damn.

    So yeah, things have been a little negative around here. Trust me, I'm not creating the negative news, just reporting it. You think this blog is getting ridiculous? Me too. Trust me, this is not how I envisioned things would be when I began this blog 3 years ago.

    I could post nothing but positive comments about how awesome this fall camp video footage looks...but I've been doing that for 2 years and am tired of over analyzing video from practices. It just doesn't matter to me.

    When the season starts, hopefully things will get better...and that will be reflected in the content on this blog.
